Create formal, policy-based data-protection rules

According to IDC, the majority of organizations (52.2%) would characterize incidents arising from insider threats as predominately accidental.

But these “accidents” can be just as costly as malicious, intentional attacks, and the easy availability of public cloud collaboration solutions only increases this risk.

That’s why it’s critical that organizations create data-protection rules that inform users about the types of information that can and cannot be readily shared externally.

Simply ensuring that all employees understand and know how to comply with these rules reduces the risk of unintentional data breach or loss due to unsecured file exchange.

Ditch mainframe-style costs and complexity — gain new levels of flexibility and control

Why continue to do “business as usual” using unsecured FTP sites or an expensive monolithic system to connect remote store locations to your corporate systems, when you can have mainframe-style benefits without the administration and governance headaches?

You can mitigate risks, improve agility, and derive more value from your existing IT assets with a single solution for managed file transfer (MFT). By moving from point-to-point connections and integrations to a unified platform, you can:

  • Eliminate processing latency by automating business processes and file transfers — including EDI — in a stable, secure, and easy-to-manage environment.
  • ƒCentralize IT support with a single dashboard for all facets of administration, configuration, monitoring and analysis of file-transfer activities and applications.
  • Manage business protocols, file transfer protocols, messaging, encryption policies and web services — all in one place.
  • ƒUse naming conventions that dramatically reduce customization workloads when implementing new data flows, including non-standard data types and ad hoc file transfers (including email with unstructured file attachments).
  • ƒStreamline integration with all remote operations. Axway’s integration products support industry standards (such as AS2) by processing data from any source in any format — including all variants of XML and EDI.

The right integration products will enable you to send data on to recipient applications (order processing, invoicing/collections, warehousing and inventory management, for example) with the data structure and transport mode they require, and the precision timing they expect.
