ATLANTA " October 13, 2009 " nuBridges, the secure eBusiness authority, announced today the availability of nuBridges Exchange 3.0, its next-generation secure managed file transfer (MFT) software for today's extended enterprise. Based on the growing convergence of data protection and secure file transfer technologies, nuBridges offers high-performance enterprise infrastructure solutions that protect data both at rest and in motion. nuBridges Exchange helps organizations reduce file transfer costs and complexity, secure and audit file transfer events, meet compliance requirements and easily share files among departments, divisions and high-volume B2B communities. nuBridges Exchange makes it easier to do business faster " translating directly to revenue.

Unlike other available offerings, nuBridges Exchange is a highly scalable solution that runs on distributed systems platforms and works across disparate IT environments, offering a wide range of support for multiple file types, standards and protocols including sFTP, FTPs, AS2 and more. nuBridges Exchange is designed to easily "be there when you need it" to accommodate diverse communication methods, increasing data volumes, growing user populations and multi-enterprise collaboration requirements.

"Companies should consider managed file transfer suite vendors that meet short-term tactical and long-term strategic needs," said L. Frank Kenney, research director, Applications Strategy and Governance for Gartner. "It's all too easy to react too quickly and procure and deploy technology that supports only one protocol or security standard. It's much more prudent to deploy a product that can be easily expanded and updated to handle multiple protocols and multiple standards in a governed way that is fully auditable."

nuBridges Exchange benefits enterprises with such features as:

  • Global visibility " Execute, manage and view all internal and external file transfers in real-time via an intuitive web-based user interface.

    • Audit logs for compliance " All file transfer events are logged for auditing, monitoring, reporting and forensics.

    • Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) " Allows enterprises to easily incorporate file transfer operations into SOA-compliant business processes and applications.

    • Sophisticated authorization model " Simplifies the set-up of application privileges to establish a balance between access and security by delineating roles and creating separation of duties for system users.

    • Cross-platform installer " Single installation process, even across multiple platforms, significantly reducing deployment time.

    • Commerce Suite integration " Customers using nuBridges' Commerce Suite AS2 file transfer module can integrate with nuBridges Exchange 3.0, or migrate from Commerce Suite to nuBridges Exchange 3.0.

      nuBridges Exchange enables file transfers among departments, divisions and other internal constituencies as well as business partners that form the extended enterprise. Its strong security features include streaming file delivery so that files in transit never "touch the iron," providing an additional layer of data protection. It is designed for ultra-fast performance and supports unlimited file transfer volumes (size or number) and unlimited business partners.

      nuBridges Exchange supports scheduled, event-triggered and ad hoc file transfers through a browser-based portal that lets authorized users easily upload, download and view files. A graphical dashboard enables enterprises to monitor transaction activity in real-time, including business activity monitoring (BAM) and business process management (BPM) capabilities.

      "Today's extended enterprise has porous borders by design so it can react more quickly to revenue opportunities, tap into global ecosystems and complete order-to-cash cycles faster," said Kim Addington, CMO of nuBridges. "nuBridges Exchange is a new generation of managed file transfer technology that makes it easier to move information, to enable collaboration, and to monitor and prove compliance."

As a result, nuBridges is furthering its position as the trusted source for integrated security and management technology designed to handle high volumes of business-critical data at rest, in motion and at work.

      "As a result of the explosive growth in electronic information sharing within companies and among business partners, there are many more opportunities for cybercriminals to steal sensitive data," said Kyle Parris, director of product management for nuBridges. "The high occurrence rate of criminal breaches " in addition to accidental losses " illustrates the importance of protecting information over its entire life. nuBridges Exchange enables the secure transmittal of critical business information, internally and externally, with confidence, enhancing data security and compliance."
