BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Attunity Ltd. (OTC BB: ATTUF.OB), a leading provider of real-time data integration software, announced today that Grow Financial Federal Credit Union ("Grow Financial") has selected Attunity's managed file transfer (MFT) solution (formerly known as RepliWeb-MFT), to automate and secure the process of transferring files to increase its productivity and meet internal audit requirements.
As one of the leading community financial institutions in the Tampa Bay area in Florida, Grow Financial's business is driven by information availability. Grow Financial's legacy approach to transferring information between internal systems, subsidiaries and external partners had relied heavily on manual processes and required users to interact with file transfer protocol (FTP) servers. FTP had proved to be problematic for Grow Financial because business users were challenged by its usability, while IT teams needed to closely manage file exchanges, notifications and communications at all hours of the day and night. As a result, these manual processes hindered productivity and were difficult to audit.
In response to these challenges, Grow Financial sought out and acquired Attunity's solution. Attunity MFT fulfills Grow Financial's need for a file transfer solution that incorporates automation and guarantees delivery to its diverse portfolio of file transfer processes. Attunity MFT also helps Grow Financial to enforce internal data security policies, provide detailed auditing for compliance, and increase employee productivity.
"After evaluating several other MFT products, we selected Attunity MFT because it truly exceeded our expectations," explained James Stock, AVP Network Services at Grow Financial. "I estimate that Attunity MFT saves our employees at least 20 hours per month by automating all of our mission-critical file transfer processes. It also eliminated the need to manually download files after business hours. We enjoy the peace of mind that Attunity MFT provides with its audit trail and inbound file virus scanning that ensures network security."
"We are pleased to help Grow Financial provide a more comprehensive and reliable infrastructure for managing machine-to-machine secure file transfers," stated Garrick Herrmann, Vice President of Sales at Attunity. "By providing a single solution that automates all business transfer processes and provides notifications to all parties, Attunity enables companies like Grow Financial to boost their productivity and feel confident that data consistency and reliability is guaranteed and auditable."
