I have a secure FTP site using 256-bit encrypted SSL in order to meet/exceed HIPAA standards.
I need a VERY easy solution for the doctors to be able to securely upload data files to this FTP site. Is there ANYTHING available that we could use BESIDES a standalone FTP client application to allow them to "drag and drop" files to the FTP site with the fewest "extra" steps?
I was specifically wondering if there were some sort of 3rd party add-in to Internet Explorer to allow SSL connections to FTP sites. Obviously, you can log into an FTP site with Internet Explorer or even Windows Explorer...and create a link, make it drag and drop, the whole nine yards...WONDERFUL!!! Now, how do you do it securely???
I found a java ap, but it's $400. (http://www.jscape.com/sftpapplet/index.html
) Kinda looking for something cheaper or "yes", even FREE would be great (we all want it free, don't we?).
If I understand correctly, Vista and IE7.0 will have this functionality built in or available...would like to get this accomplished now, not 2 years from now (being a little facetious)
MANY THANKS for your suggestions....
