What is FIPS 140-2?
The best managed file transfer software contains the latest encryption, and the latest cryptographic standards are found in FIPS 140-2. The FIPS 140-2 encryption standards were issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and contain strict guidelines for ensuring that cryptographic-based products properly safeguard data transmissions. The government established a FIPS 140-2 accreditation program for vendors that develop cryptographic modules, and the testing of cryptographic modules is handled by approved third-party laboratories. bTrade’s managed file transfer products contain cryptography that has received FIPS 140-2 validation.

Time and again the data security thought-leaders stressed that enterprises need to know and understand how data security can be compromised. While FTP is thought to be relatively secure, there are risks involved from a security perspective. There was significant discussion regarding managed file transfer as a significantly more secure process than FTP for protecting data security. (more)
