Anti-virus scanning for files uploaded through your Web forms with SecureForm

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

If you have a web form that allows end users to upload files, then you may be placing yourself at risk.  End users can upload virus-laden files or malware through these forms.  Opening such files can place your computer at risk — especially if your computer does not itself have real-time anti-virus scanning enabled, that scanning software is old or not well designed, or it is not updating itself frequently.

LuxSci SecureForm form data processing now automatically scans all uploaded files for viruses in real time.  If a virus or malware is detected, the form submission will be automatically blocked.  Current SecureForm users are automatically protected by this service.

Defense in depth is an important security measure.  Multiple barriers, multiple scans, and multiple checks all help to protect your systems.  If you are accepting arbitrary files over the Internet, have them scanned immediately on upload.  Have them scanned again when you access them using your own computer’s anti-virus system.  We are in the days where viruses do not just slow down your computer, they encrypt and lock away all of your data and/or put your identity up for sale.  You need to take as many precautions as possible to minimize your possible exposure to threats and the risk to your business.

Indeed, drag and drop file uploads to web sites are becoming the “new normal” with the old method of clicking on individual file upload fields to select a file from your browser being “old school” for any place where files are frequently accessed.

File Manager Now Supports Bulk Uploads and Downloads

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

LuxSci has updated its “File Manager” tool, which provides a secure web-based interface for managing files in a user’s “FTP Space”.  This tool is a good alternative to FTP when additional security and auditing is required or for file access without the need for a third party FTP (or SFTP) program is desirable.

The File Manager now allows bulk file uploads and downloads:
