Axway Delivers Enterprise-Class Managed File Transfer Solution

SecureTransport provides visibility into information flows both within and outside of the organization, while ensuring compliance
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axway, the Business Interaction Networks company, continued its leadership in the managed file transfer (MFT) market by introducing large enterprise clustering for its SecureTransport™ offering. SecureTransport simplifies and secures file transfers between people, sites, applications and external partners, providing visibility into information flows both within and outside of the organization, while ensuring compliance with global mandates. The new large enterprise clustering option extends SecureTransport’s standard clustering capabilities, integrates into an external database and scales up to 20 nodes to handle a virtually unlimited number of concurrent connections. Large enterprise clustering also adds policy-based management of server-initiated and server-side tasks, giving administrators finer-grained controls.

Organizations of all sizes are investing in sophisticated MFT capabilities to ensure compliance, and ease the burden associated with manually managing the file transfer process. As Thomas Skybakmoen, senior research analyst, Gartner notes, “Most organizations already have some form of MFT but lack the visibility and governance capabilities needed to minimize risk and meet global mandates. This becomes more critical as you look at large organizations that deal with significant volume and must incorporate multiple applications and systems, internally and externally. This market requirement is driving interest in the MFT solutions capable of solving this problem.”

Designed to handle both interactive, user-driven communications and automated file transfer, SecureTransport integrates easily into existing architectures, preserving IT investments while delivering enhanced and scalable functionality. The solution is currently deployed in large enterprise environments and is capable of handling millions of daily file transfers. SecureTransport is part of Axway’s award-winning suite of MFT solutions; it addresses all usage patterns, incorporates a rich security pedigree and delivers enhanced performance coupled with superior ease-of-use.

Axway was positioned in the “Leaders” Quadrant in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer.

Axway SecureTransport facilitates:

* Compliance – Enables companies with data transfer risk management concerns to reduce risk and meet regulatory compliance mandates.

* Security – Securely controls and manages internal and external file transfers. Secures the data and the network. * Flexibility – Highly configurable and customizable for all aspects of file transfer, including: user interface, routing rules, authentication, encryption, deployment models, endpoint choice and more. * Integration – Integrates easily with existing IT infrastructure and scales through every phase of growth. * Performance – Arguably the most scalable MFT solution on the market, SecureTransport is equipped to efficiently scale as file sizes and online activities increase. * FTP Replacement – Highly scalable, managed service for all modes of managed file transfer over FTP/S, SSH-FTP, HTTP/S, SCP and AS2 – all fully integrated with Axway Transfer CFT.

“Protecting business interactions in transit is important for any organization, but for those in highly regulated industries it becomes critical. And as companies look to formalize how they handle MFT, the desire to minimize the impact on the data center as it currently exists will be first and foremost in the minds of many,” said Dave Bennett, CTO of Axway. “All of our solutions, spanning multiple business interaction patterns, bring policy-based management and visibility to transactions both within and outside the enterprise. It is this vision that guides the development of SecureTransport.”

Axway will demo its latest SecureTransport offering at RSA Conference 2011 in San Francisco, taking place February 14-18, 2011. More information on Axway SecureTransport can be found at Axway’s booth #2225 or at: http://www.axway.com/products-solutions/mft/gateways/securetransport.
