Management File Transfer
Requirements and Solution for a Flexible and Manageable File Transfer
Information interchange is key factor in business-to-business relationships. The Internet diffusion has somehow changed the priority in the market requirements for implementing solutions for ebusiness. We will examine first what is the market perception of these requirements and then consider a solution that covers a broad spectrum of business needs. According to the Market Analysts the major requirements of a business information exchange are: Standard Technology, Security, Management and Control of the data movement (Governance), added value functions such as automation, data transformation and integration with popular products/protocols. The document is been extracted from a web letter published in cooperation with Gartner Group.
File Governance – Requirements and Benefits
The relationship between business units and shared IT services providing managed file transfer is the focus of this new white paper from the File Transfer Consulting and Primeur. Emphasis is placed on serving internal customers with data they can use to control costs in an uncertain economy.
Spazio File Governance – Definitions and Benefits
Many companies find themselves with a desire and need for change but, particularly in today’s economic environment, a corporate wide replacement project may not have a high enough Return on Investment. However, the problems remain and are having adverse effects on costs, efficiency, service levels, and compliance.This White Paper looks at what can be done to put file transfer under “control” without needing to make changes to the existing file transfers, whilst at the same reducing costs.
Spazio File Governance – Modernization and Cost Reduction of File Transfer
A key business driver for Secure Managed File Transfer is the increasing need for multi-enterprise collaboration with third parties. This White Paper explores a solution, Primeur’s Spazio File Governance, which answers to “Who sent what to whom, when did they send it, and did the right person receive it?” question, thus enabling cost reduction through modernization and rationalization of existing file transfers, provides full Governance/Audit of End-to-End transfers even when the file transfer is between two organizations, and enables business level monitoring and alerting for out-of-line situations.
Security Today – An Introduction to Security and Cryptographic concepts
The aim of this short document is to provide the reader with a basic knowledge of security and cryptographic concepts. It examines them as they have evolved overthe centuries, from the first rudimentary ciphers, right up to the current levels ofsophistication (and complexity) necessary for protecting information in the everpresent and global context of electronic communications.
Securing a WebSphere MQ infrastructure
The word “security” can mean many things. Even narrowing the context to the world of information technology, “Security” still has a wide range of meanings, sometimes totally unrelated. A brief (incomplete!) list of such meanings could include: Access Control, Intrusion Detection, Single Sign-On, Firewalls, Cryptography, Certification, Security Auditing and Management, Virus Protection and Physical Security. In the specific context of WebSphere MQ, to narrow the discussion even further, it makes sense to talk about security from the three distinct viewpoints: access control, propagation of contexts, application of cryptographic techniques. This document will deal specifically with the last point: the application of cryptographic techniques in the context of a WebSphere MQ network.
PCI DSS Compliance in a WebSphere MQ Infrastructure
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) was developed to encourage and enhance cardholder data security and facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures globally. The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) - www.pcisecuritystandards.org - was set-up in 2006 and owns and develops the standards and raises awareness of them. The PCI SSC is jointly-owned by the world’s major card brands. This white paper, using the example of Primeur’s DSMQ product, explores what is needed to help make WebSphere MQ a part of a PCI compliant infrastructure.
PCI DSS and Spazio Managed File Transfer Secure (MFT/S)
This White Paper reviews the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard from the perspective of Primeur’s Spazio Managed File Transfer-Secure (MFT/S) suite. Primeur’s Spazio MFT/S can be a key component in a shared infrastructure service to provide this capability. In fact, industry analysts such as Gartner rate Spazio MFT/S as a leading product in delivering this. This paper therefore is aimed at anyone with an interest in key IT infrastructure components that business applications related to the processing of payment card data. And it outlines how Primeur can help with addressing the technology aspects of PCI compliance.
