Data Security: Keep Data Secure Even After Discarding The Hardware

Premera Data Security Audit Report: Another Case Study in What Not-to-Do

For some time now, bTrade’s MFT Nation blog has been beating the drum about the importance of updating data security software.  The drum beat (our message) has been to avoid being penny wise and pound foolish--i.e., it’s generally wise economically to make regular investments in upgrades to data security software, rather than face costly expenditures and downtime when your out-of-date software eventually malfunctions.  The drum beat continued when news broke about the FTC vs. Wyndham case, which MFT Nation described as a “case study for what not to do in the rapidly changing world of data security.” (more)

Nothing is Permanent but Change, Especially in the World of Data Security

bTrade will be exhibiting at the 2015 RSA Conference.  For those not familiar with this conference, I would say it is all about data security.  RSA markets its annual conference as the place where “the world” talks about data security, and the theme for the upcoming conference revolves around “change” and “challenging” current thinking about data security.  We can think of no better topic for discussion, so below are some of our thoughts about change as it relates to data security in the context of secure/managed file transfer.

TDXchange in the Real World

In my previous blog, I had compared our flagship solution, TDXchange, to a Swiss army knife for data security.  That was simply a high level overview.  So what I would like to do now is go into further detail and provide some real-world examples based on my seven years of experience as a bTrade Support Engineer.  These are scenarios which have been implemented by bTrade customers, both domestically and abroad, for companies that range in size from 35 to 35,000 employees.
