Every day organizations share megabytes, gigabytes or even terabytes of data with their business partners around the world using protocols such as FTP, HTTP, S-HTTP, SFTP, and FTPS. If there’s no apparent service outage, security breach or audit failure, most organizations assume these protocols are doing a secure and effective job of file transfer.
But each of these protocols has serious flaws that are quietly making it harder for organizations to add trading partners, putting their confidential data at risk, and possibly violating privacy and security regulations.
Any organization that shares information outside the perimeter of its secure network should be aware of these risks and know that another approach – incorporating an application proxy – can help deliver the security, scalability and visibility, demanded by today’s 24/7 global Web economy, as well as industry and government compliance regulations.
This white paper from IBM explores the costs, risks and hidden dangers associated with today's protocols, and makes the case for improved capabilities.
