WebSphere MQ V7.5 is enhanced to extend WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer Agent support for deployment on the IBM 4690 operating system retail store controller. It simplifies the deployment of Managed File Transfer Agents onto existing 4690 Store Controller hardware.

WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer Agents enable files to be transferred as MQ messages from endpoint connections into WebSphere MQ networks. Customers using this WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer capability benefit from increased reliability of transfers, enhanced options for security, and the ability to make rapid use of the data in files, as file content can be created from a message, or consumed in a message by an application.

A Client Device is a single-user computing device or special-purpose sensor or telemetry device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from or provides data to another computer system that is typically referred to as a server or is otherwise managed by the server. Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device may have some processing capability or be programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, actuators, appliances, automated teller machines, automatic meter readers, cash registers, disk drives, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistants, point-of-sale terminals, sensors, smart meters, tape drives, and technical workstations.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
