Gumbo Creates Digitally Signed PDFs from i5/OS Spool Files
March 18, 2008 Alex Woodie
i5/OS shops using Gumbo Software‘s SpoolMail and Spool-a-Matic products can now create digitally signed PDF documents from their System i’s spool files, the software developer recently announced.
Seattle, Washington-based Gumbo Software develops a range of software utilities designed to spruce up the System i server’s native print output mechanism. Key among these are Spool-a-Matic, which converts i5/OS spool files into PDF, RTF, HTML, and other PC formats and then places them in a predefined location on the IFS, and SpoolMail, which automatically e-mails spool files as ASCII or PDF attachments.
With SpoolMail version 2.4 and Spool-a-Matic version 2.2, Gumbo has added the capability to generate digitally signed PDF documents from i5/OS spool files. Digitally signed PDF documents can be useful to help comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and other laws requiring users to store their documents in a tamper proof format.
Additionally, SpoolMail 2.4 introduces the capability to have e-mails secured using S/MIME digital signatures, further ensuring the validity of the e-mail.
The new releases are available now. Pricing is tier-based and starts at $695 for both SpoolMail and Spool-a-Matic. For more information, visit www.gumbo.com.
