As the use of unauthorized software, including cloud-based file sharing, grows in the enterprise, organizations expose themselves to business risks such as data loss, damage, and lack of visibility, which can ultimately lead to loss of customer trust, compliance fines and penalties, and loss of revenue. Axway (Euronext : AXW.PA), a market leader in governing the flow of data, today announced enhancements to Axway SecureTransport, the industry’s most comprehensive Managed File Transfer (MFT) gateway.
The latest release of Axway SecureTransport, which is part of the Axway 5 Suite, supports traditional and emerging digital business use cases with built-in acceleration of large files across geography and network, and with REST APIs to integrate file transfer functionality into new and innovative applications. The update also supports the speed of digital business by enabling end users and teams to initiate both embedded and ad hoc file transfers and improve collaboration in shared folders regardless of protocol, across both mobile and cloud environments, while maintaining corporate governance.
