Increasing file sizes, more stringent compliance requirements, and stronger security drive demand for secure, reliable and well-managed file transfer solutions
Lexington, MA - August 12, 2009 – Ipswitch, Inc. File Transfer division, the leading developer of secure and managed file transfer solutions, today announced it's sponsorship of a new benchmark report called File Transfer is Not What it Used to Be: It's Secure, Reliable and Well-Managed, published by Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE:HHS). This report explains why the time has come for file transfer to come out of the basement and gain recognition for what it is: as a mission-critical, enterprise-class application.
"Managing the surprising degree of complexity that can be involved in the simple notion of transferring files from point A to point B cannot be the best allocation of any organization's limited IT resources, or end-user time and effort," said Derek E. Brink, vice president and research fellow for IT Security, Aberdeen Group. "Aberdeen's research has shown that persisting in the digital do-it-yourself approach to file transfer is not secure, not convenient, not compliant, and definitely not 'free.'"
Today’s file transfer solutions have quietly transformed themselves into full-featured, enterprise-class solutions that enable secure, reliable and well-managed webs of critical connections for person-to-person collaboration and process-to-process integration. As a prime example of the modern "plumbing" that enables collaboration and integrates business processes, secure and managed file transfer solutions have specifically been designed to liberate overburdened administrators and end-users from the cost and complexity of managing file transfers in the typical heterogeneous IT computing infrastructure. Secure, managed file transfer also addresses many of the security and cost shortcomings of physical "copy and carry" delivery mechanisms and legacy "digital do-it-yourself" file transfer approaches.
A complimentary copy of the File Transfer is Not What it Used to Be report is made available in part by the support of Ipswitch File Transfer.
