We often talk about security on File Transfer Planet. How could we not? Beyond traditional FTP, there are many highly-secure solutions leveraging the core function of FTP. News of a significant data breach involving Sony is taking shape this week.
A lawsuit has been filed against Sony as news coverage expands around what possibly could be a larger security breach than TJX’s unfortunate breach in 2007.
The breach may involve roughly 75 million Sony PlayStation Network customers — billing addresses, usernames/passwords, email addresses, birthdays, and transaction histories.
Ipswitch’s Hugh Garber is closely following the data breach coverage on the Knowledge Transfer Blog from Ipswitch File Transfer.
