Can data be encrypted and then securely transmitted?
File at rest encryption is default on the nuMotus Direct Core, as this would be in between endpoint transfers
How would the netUP nuMotus Direct model be implemented to satisfy MFT needs?
In short, netUP offers a hub-and-spoke managed framework model for MFT. An agent is installed on each endpoint. The agent will detect a file placed for transmission. The file will then be transmitted via an encrypted transfer to the hub (nuMotus Direct server). The hub will then make the file available to the destination where the destination agent will decrypt the file and make it available for further processing.
Can you use web services (WSDL) for passing files?
We do have a plug-in for web services and use it in our Cloud solution. The web services per se is not and issue, but depends on what the customer requirements are and how they want us to use it
Do you need passwords between servers/endpoints when files are transferred?
No passwords are required as agents authenticate through a key exchange
Can your application collect files from a ftp site? We have a client which is going to install the netup application. All files are stored on a ftp/sftp site. So instead of us also installing netup on our side. Can your software collect and drop off files from a ftp/sftp site and then transfer to our clients netup server?
Yes we can indeed. We can integrate and use most transfers protocols available in the market.
What encryption is used for MFT. Can the encrypted data be sent and left unencrypted and then transferred to a separate location outside of the MFT solution and decrypted with an Asynchronous/other key
The encryption used by the agent services are AES-256. The system works in such a way that whatever file is placed in an “outgoing” folder, the file is received at the destination in exactly the same way. So, if you want to have an encrypted file coming out at the other end, then pre-encrypt the file you want to send and that will be the result. This offers an additional layer of security for your own peace of mind, as you can then share your own encryption key with the receiving party, without the MFT process itself having any knowledge of your key.
