Tumbleweed Communications announced the availability of Tumbleweed SecureTransport 4.6, the latest version of Tumbleweed’s award-winning enterprise managed file transfer solution.
Tumbleweed SecureTransport is a leading Managed File Transfer solution providing the most secure, reliable, manageable and auditable file exchange inside and outside of your organization. Financial networks use SecureTransport to move billions of dollars in financial transactions daily, and at least 8 of the top 10 U.S. banks use it to serve tens of thousands of corporate customers. Healthcare providers, payors, producers and clearing houses are linked through SecureTransport, which provides a single, integrated secure file transfer infrastructure for transferring private health information (PHI). Government agencies leverage SecureTransport to share sensitive documents with other agencies.
According to a recent survey commissioned by Ziff Davis on behalf of Tumbleweed, security related issues represent the top four concerns that organizations have about moving files over the Internet. The findings revealed that organizations are concerned about file transfers compromising security and data. Loss of customer, partner and personal data, loss of control over proprietary information and failure to meet security audit requirements are the top organizational concerns about transferring files. Respondents also emphasized that an easy to use appliance and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) strategy, like the new SecureTransport 4.6, is “extremely” valuable.
Tumbleweed SecureTransport 4.6 support for OpenPGP encryption, allows for automatic signature validation, and supports a variety of standard protocols, including HTTP, FTP, SFTP, SCP and AS2. Scalable to tens of thousands of users, Secure Transport 4.6 ships with a streamlined administrative user interface providing improved visibility and management of accounts, file transfers, cluster operations and reporting features.
