Industry News: Coviant Software CEO Greg Hoffer in the Cyber Defense Magazine Hot Seat

by | Apr 19, 2023

Cyber Defense Magazine publisher Gary Miliefsky put Coviant Software CEO Greg Hoffer in the Hot Seat to talk about what’s new in managed file transfer and cybersecurity.

Quantum computing is posing quite an interesting threat to the world. Although quantum computers are many years off, one of the challenges is, hackers can store data now and wait until quantum computing is available. There is a threat around store now, decrypt later.

Among the issues Gary and Greg discuss are:

1. How managed file transfer software helps organizations comply with data privacy and information security standards and regulations like HIPAA, GDPR, J-SOX, PCI-DSS, and Positive Pay.

2. Quantum computing and its risk to encrypted data, including data that is harvested today for decryption later in a post-quantum world.

3. Process automation’s role in cybersecurity, ensuring rules are followed and eliminating the risk of human error in data management.

4. The similarities (data protection as a business imperative) and differences (scale and complexity!) between MFT in large and small business environments.

5. What Coviant Software is doing today, and planning to do to ensure organizations can safely share files in any future security context.
