Attachmate Simplifies Buying Process for the Managed File Transfer Market

SeattleAugust 1, 2013

Attachmate Corporation today announced product and service bundles for the FileXpress® suite of Managed File Transfer (MFT) software. Organizations can now reduce the costly clutter of existing MFT tools, and choose from three product and service bundles that meet their file transfer needs. Full-featured solutions, including implementation support service, start at just $60,000 USD.

Attachmate's MFT solutions put vital data in motion, with the convenience people expect, and the security IT departments require. With over 30 years of experience serving large enterprises, Attachmate has identified their most common MFT usage scenarios, and created unique product and service bundles to address those needs:

  • User-to-User (U2U) Transfers – These are typically "ad hoc" file transfers between users inside and outside the corporate firewall. The U2U bundle enables convenient transfers through familiar interfaces such as email, web browsers, and "drag-and-drop" file folders.
  • Business-to-Business (B2B) Transfers – Enterprises rely on these to share vital information with partners and other businesses. The B2B bundle provides support for multiple transfer protocols and the detailed tracking required to pass rigorous compliance audits.
  • Application-to-Application (A2A) Transfers – Enterprises use A2A transfers to execute against heavy-duty file transfer requirements. The A2A bundle delivers advanced levels of automation, data encryption, file compression, and other features the high-performance business needs to keep data moving.

By tailoring products and services to these specific usage scenarios, Attachmate's new MFT bundles help enterprises streamline operations and improve bottom-line results.

"Too many enterprises are operationally and financially hamstrung by the file transfer tools their companies use today. From aging home-brewed or vendor-built point solutions, to consumer-grade, non-secure tools on employee devices, CIOs spend way too much on outcomes that leave key information assets at risk," said Tom Scearce, senior product marketing manager at Attachmate. "Our new bundles make it easy for companies to solve their file transfer problems. Simply choose your use cases and we'll help you deploy the tools needed to transfer files securely and reliably."
