nuBridges Ships truExchange FTP for Linux

Open Source Solution Secures Enterprise eBusiness Communities Quickly and Cost-Effectively

ATLANTA (Dec. 7, 2005) — nuBridges LLC, a leading provider of eBusiness community management solutions, today announced the immediate availability of truExchange FTP for Linux, the first enterprise-grade Linux solution for secure managed file transfer. Many organizations address their FTP processes in a piecemeal fashion through implementing different products. As large enterprises increasingly adopt Linux operating systems, nuBridges ( now offers a Linux compatible solution with solid security and unmatched firewall navigation capabilities to give organizations total control over their FTP transactions.

truExchange FTP securely transports any type of critical business document such as purchase orders, advance ship notices, Point-of-Sale (POS) and payroll data. truExchange FTP’s security and auditing features satisfies compliance requirements for mandates such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). It accomplishes this by providing full tracking and auditing capabilities for all inbound and outbound transactions protected by definable user access. It further ensures compliance through various forms of encryption support including secure sockets layer/transport layer security (SSL/TLS), secure shell (SSH), Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) and secure/multipurpose Internet email extensions (S/MIME).

"Compliance with the growing number of government, industry and corporate mandates to securely exchange information internally and among business partners requires a nimble and flexible approach," said Wain Kellum, CEO of nuBridges. "With truExchange FTP for Linux customers can address their requirements for managing secure file transfers and establish a secure and reliable transaction network quickly and cost-effectively."

Built upon its flagship truExchange platform, truExchange FTP for Linux offers both implicit and explicit SSL/TLS, client-side authentication, time/event-driven file transfers, exception alerts by email and simple network management protocol (SNMP) and in-session recovery. Paired with nuBridges truExchange Secure Transaction Manager services, it ensures the secure delivery of transactions through a company’s firewall without having to manipulate those firewall rules or rebuild the network environment. Enhanced features include validation of inbound protocols before granting access, hacker alerts and Internet protocol (IP) address filtering/blocking. These added security features protect organizations against unwanted visitors and enables a trusted partner network.

truExchange FTP for Linux offers a portal interface for visibility to manage a large partner community by unique user views. The command-driven interface for FTP client scripting makes it possible to automate FTP processes and schedule or trigger them based on business events. The solution supports various document formats including EDI, XML, text and binary files. To affirm the security of information transfer, truExchange FTP is commonly bundled with a security protocol such as SSH or PGP.
