New Managed File Transfer solution offers advanced audit capabilities, integration with Microsoft Outlook and patent-pending large-file transfer acceleration
Wick Hill announces the availability
of OpenText’s new solution for managing the fast and secure exchange of
large files inside and outside enterprises.
Easy-to-use and deploy, OpenText Managed File Transfer (MFT) integrates
with Microsoft Outlook, helps reduce file attachment size concerns, and
provides a powerful platform for the secure and auditable exchange of
rich digital content, including sensitive intellectual property among
employees, partners and customers.
Ian Kilpatrick, chairman of Wick Hill Group, commented: “Organisations
are increasingly looking to move beyond legacy file transfer
technologies such as FTP to solutions that can handle the exchange of
growing volumes of digital content, address increased challenges to
protect information and help address regulatory compliance.
“At the same time, end-users demand that the solution be convenient and
easy to use. OpenText MFT offers the ideal platform for these
Key Managed File Transfer features include:
- Ultra-fast content delivery based on patent-pending file acceleration technology
- Intuitive user experience through Microsoft Outlook or a Web browser
- Encryption of content-in-transit and authentication against the enterprise directory
- End-to-end audit trail
- File delivery with auto-resume, QoS support and network conditions adaptability
Eugene Cherny, General Manager for Connectivity at OpenText, said: "We
heard loud and clear from customers that their current solutions for
exchanging digital content were limited in file size, not secure enough,
too slow or too hard to use. We developed OpenText Managed File
Transfer to fully address these challenges.
“Our deep expertise in developing enterprise connectivity and content
management solutions puts us in the position to offer a dramatically
improved approach to enterprise file transfer.”
Overcome file size limitations
In most organisations, the average file attachment size allowed within
Microsoft Outlook is just 10 megabytes. This represents a major
limitation when it comes to exchanging rich media content such as slide
presentations, images, video files or engineering and architecture
drawings that range from hundreds of megabytes to multiple gigabytes
In certain industries, such as film and broadcast production, the time
it takes to transfers files between locations is a major concern. To
overcome the 10 MB restriction, employees often resort to risky or
cumbersome file exchange methods such as FTP, physical media or
cloud-based public storage sites.
OpenText Managed File Transfer unburdens users from file size
limitations while providing usability comparable to email attachments.
With support for a wide range of industry standard encryption types and
the included OpenText FIPS 140-2 certified cryptography module, OpenText
Managed File Transfer helps ensure the safe and compliant exchange of
intellectual property. On the receiving end, files are easily accessed
from any browser or email system.
On March 5th 2012, OpenText announced the availability of OpenText
Tempo, a secure hybrid cloud document sharing and mobile syncing
solution. While OpenText Tempo lets organisations quickly set up a
private solution for easily sharing and syncing of content in the cloud,
OpenText Managed File Transfer is designed to help organisations
overcome the security and performance limitations of traditional file
transfer mechanisms, such as FTP servers and physical media.
