PDF writer to FTP to server or netwprk location

15 pts.
InfoPrint Server
we run v5r2 and have various PDF writers that e-mail reports to users in another state. Due to SOX compliance we need to now set up a system where these reports are secure (encrypted) unfortunately, Infoprint for V5R2 does not offer encryption only v5r4 or higher. We cannot upgrade our OS at this time so I am looking for a solution to encrypt these reports and send them to the users. We were also thinking is there a way to take these PDF reports and ftp them to a server or on the network?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you checked to see whether the V5R4 encryption is available as a PTF update to V5R2? Sometimes, certain features are made backward compatible with one or two of the prior operating system versions via a PTF. I don’t know if this is one, but it never hurts to check.

If having this capability for SOX is important, then I am curious why you can’t upgrade to V5R4?

    Thank you for the reply- No PTF's are available for this- that would be too easy right? No upgrade due to $$$$$$. I thank you for your response.

    Hi, Maybe you could look at using SecureZip - it's probably a cheaper option than the upgrade. You could ZIP your PDF files with encryption before you mail them, you could also password protect them if you want. I believe that the SecureZip files are compatible with winzip, so your receiving parties should be able to uncompress them on a PC. Regards, Martin Gilbert.

    What is the deal with embedded links not showing up???? Here are the URLs I mentioned above: https://www.computerweekly.com/Articles/2007/10/02/227315/specifications-for-backup-software-based- encryption.htm http://www.itjungle.com/fhs/fhs012307-story02.html

    Another example of "security for the sake of compliance" getting in the way of doing business like I wrote about here. Is there any reason the PDFs themselves cannot be password-protected (which uses a form of encryption)? Otherwise, check out SecureZip like Gilly400 mentioned or WinZip and others.
