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.
