About large file transfers

Your staff create large files in their daily work using powerful office tools and it is inside these power-points, spreadsheets, excel charts, data bases, cad files, pdfs and so on that they capture some of the most important and confidential aspects of your business. These files are quite large and with new technologies are getting larger; your staff want to use these files in many different locations and on many devices and the people with whom they share ideas are often outside your organization and the fact is the power of these ideas is most valuable when shared; and it is here you hit a serious problem.

The tool we would most likely select to share our ideas is e-mail, and e-mail simply does not handle large files well and is not secure especially beyond the boundary of your firewall. You have most likely by necessity set limits on the size of files that can be attached to e-mail and on the absolute size of e-mail storage for each member of your staff; when either of these limits are hit individuals are forced to make a choice about how to share the ideas they have been working on with others.

And here lies the problem; those choices include some safe, complex and expensive tools such as SMIME, or some less safe home built solutions such as in house ftp servers however increasingly staff are finding consumer grade e-mail and cloud services such as drop-box and g-mail the fastest ways to share what they want when they want. There are many choices that are made, some if not all of these can be found in most work places and these choices create significant risks to your organization. We will show that by removing the flaws in e-mail you dramatically reduce your risk and so remove the associated problems.

  • NSA plans a new future for data encryption

    The NSA and other government funded authorities have been discussing how they can work with the encrypted data of private persons and companies. Leaks and spying scandals have increased the awareness for the need to encrypt data and with it greater efforts to secure communications have been made. This in turn makes law enforcement more difficult when it comes to accessing digital data and communications. However the NSA argues that to prevent threats to the nation they need access to all communications. NSA-Director Michael Rogers proposes the solution is to create a master digital key with several different pieces creating "front door“ access to all digital devices for the authorities.
