ATLANTA, GA (August 23, 2011) – SEEBURGER announced today that it has received a Network Products Guide-sponsored 2011 Golden Bridge Award for SEEBURGER Managed File Exchange (SEE FX), a solution enabling secure human-to-human and system-to-human exchange of large and/or sensitive files to ensure data protection, message traceability, centralized policy management, and compliance with regulatory and governance mandates. SEE FX was named the winner in the Managed File Transfer category of the information technology portion of the competition, formerly known as the Network Products Guide Product Innovation Awards program.
The award reflects SEE FX’s strengths in closing critical security and compliance loopholes associated with large and business-critical file transfers, as well as its role in expanding SEEBURGER’s business-to-business integration platform into the market’s only data hub capable of securely transmitting, transforming, integrating and tracking all structured and unstructured business communications from a single interface.
With SEE FX and other soon-to-be-released components of the SEEBURGER Managed File Transfer (MFT) family added to the flagship supply chain communications capabilities of the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite, SEEBURGER now offers a one-platform, one-GUI solution for all human-to-human, system-to-human, system-to-system, B2B and EDI data exchange both inside and outside the corporate firewall. Centralizing all of these functions under one gateway simplifies the IT infrastructure, reduces the total cost of ownership, and streamlines corporate and regulatory compliance efforts.
Gaining Control with SEE FX
SEE FX controls the human-to-human and system-to-human exchange of files that are typically transmitted via insecure and non-auditable strategies such as FTP, YouSendIt or Dropbox. That includes CAD, video or other large files exceeding email attachment limits, as well as smaller confidential or regulated files containing information such as financial data, price lists, customer databases, medical records or credit card data.
Building on SEEBURGER’s 25 years of business-to-business integration experience, SEE FX automates, protects, monitors and tracks file movement with built-in business process management, full auditability and connectivity to ERP and other enterprise systems. Key advantages include:
- Support for unlimited file sizes, overcoming email size limitations as well as the 2GB limit of other managed file transfer solutions.
- End-to-end data security via encryption and authentication, reducing the risk of data leakage or file receipt by unauthorized users.
- Guaranteed file delivery with checkpoint and restart capabilities as well as notification of transmission failures.
- Integration with Microsoft Outlook, automatically routing files of specified sizes and types through SEE FX without any change to user work habits.
- A complete audit trail of all data exchange activity to support governance and compliance mandates.
- Additional compliance support via rules-based routing and workflow, plus integration with data loss protection (DLP) solutions that screen file content for regulatory policy violations.
- Cost reductions achieved by eliminating multiple FTP servers and replacing them with one centrally managed and governed system.
“With today’s increasingly stringent data security and governance requirements, organizations face a challenge in securely exchanging and tracing data files of all kinds, particularly those that are too large for email. The usual solution – FTP – lacks encryption capabilities, provides little or no audit trail or defensible proof of delivery, and lacks effective business controls because servers are scattered throughout the organization,” said Rohit Khanna, EVP, Global Strategy and Corporate Development, for SEEBURGER. “This award for our SEE FX solution reflects the need for an FTP alternative as well as the strengths of our technology in solving the deficiencies of email, FTP and other data exchange strategies.”
SEE FX is available as a cloud service offering hosted by SEEBURGER for a low monthly fee, or as a cloud-enabled product that can be purchased as traditional license and hosted either in a private cloud or inside an enterprise network.
