As any AIX administrator or programmer knows, file transfers can be a huge headache. Writing all of those shell scripts is not only time consuming, but it’s tedious and presents many opportunities for errors. Then there’s keeping track of which files need to be sent, which need to be placed in the DMZ for trading partners to retrieve, and which ones may be being sent ad-hoc from elsewhere in the company.
Another huge hassle is verifying that every file actually reached its intended recipient intact, which often requires checking multiple times and then tracking down what went wrong.
Finally, don’t forget the pressure to meet compliance regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, and state privacy laws. With the Global Systems data breach still fresh in the news, it’s obvious that no AIX administrator wants to have to explain how sensitive data was compromised.
Fortunately, there are tools and processes available that can minimize the time and effort involved with file transfers while increasing efficiency and data security.
We invite you to sit in on this AIX-only webinar on Thursday, April 12, at noon CDT to learn about how a managed file transfer solution can cure the headaches of manual file transfers while preventing future headaches related to the possibility of compromised data.
We hope you’ll join us!
If RSA means data security and data integrity to you, then you’ll understand why any company interested in protecting the data of its customers would be at the RSA Conference 2012 in San Francisco this week. The annual RSA conference, “The Great Cipher – Mightier than the Sword” is rolling out the red carpet at the Moscone Center for companies of all sizes to learn about cyber threats, data breaches, social engineering, compliance, risk management, and cloud security.
For years, Linoma Software has been encrypting and protecting sensitive and personally identifiable information in computing environments covering non-profit, enterprise and government institutions. Participating in the annual RSA Conference provides the opportunity for thousands of companies to come and see the new secure communication features in the GoAnywhere Suite of products.
New features like Cyber Attack Monitors, Secure Mail that hosts and securely delivers ad-hoc files to recipients and Wizards that build complex conditions for ETL data handling and transformation have been generating a lot of buzz.
If you’re at the RSA conference, stop by Booth #239 and say hi to the Linoma Software team. You can also hear a five-minute intro as to why compliance fears and data breaches are not part of the GoAnywhere lexicon. If you’re not at the RSA Conference, be sure to visit the GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer page for more details.
