Ipswitch Continues to Educate Businesses Involved in Personal Data Transfer as GDPR Compliance Nears in 2018


Ipswitch Releases Infographic on 7 GDPR Protection Principles and File Transfer Solution Features Required to Ensure Compliance and Avoid Hefty Files

BURLINGTON, Mass. – Dec. 11, 2017 – Ipswitch®, the leader in easy to deploy, manage and use file transfer and network management software, released an infographic that outlines the seven data protection principles of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that assure the rights of individuals are central to the collection and processing of personal data. The infographic also highlights the managed file transfer (MFT) features needed in a MFT solution that are required to meet GDPR compliance.

“Many changes are coming under GPDR, and as the date of enforcement draws near, we want all businesses involved in the internal or external sharing of information that might contain the personal data of EU residents to be ready,” said Kevin Conklin, Vice President of Product Marketing and Content at Ipswitch. “Ipswitch has been leading the industry in providing educational resources to ensure customer compliance including this informative infographic.”

The seven data protection principles outlined in the infographic include fair, lawful and transparent processing, data security, accuracy, accountability, purpose limitation, data minimization and retention periods. Ipswitch urges businesses to ensure their managed data transfer solution includes non-repudiation to validate that personal data is transferred only between authorized senders and receivers, encryption of personal data in transit and at rest, automatic file integrity checking, comprehensive analytics that provide required insight to ensure compliance and more.

The lowest risk, most cost-effective way to meet all seven GDPR data protection principles is a managed data transfer solution like Ipswitch MOVEit® secure file transfer.
