ATLANTA, March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SEEBURGER announced today that it has received InfoSecurity Products Guide's 2012 Global Excellence Award for Database Security, Data Leakage-Protection/Extrusion Prevention for SEEBURGER Managed File Transfer (SEE MFT), which protects large and/or sensitive business files from data loss, regulatory violations and other risks of internal and external file sharing. SEE MFT is an integrated component of the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS), which has automated trading partner communications as well as enhancing the value of SAP deployments for enterprises worldwide for more than two decades.
The award marked the third major recognition for the SEE MFT solution suite since its introduction in late 2011. SEE MFT previously earned a Global Business Excellence Award for Outstanding New Product/Service and a Network Products Guide-sponsored Golden Bridge Award in the Managed File Transfer category.
Judges in the latest competition recognized SEE MFT for its comprehensive security framework designed to protect data in motion, in use and at rest. Deploying SEE MFT ensures that the right file is transmitted to the right person at the right time based on corporate and regulatory policies, rules-based routing and workflow, and integration with leading content-aware data loss prevention (DLP) solutions that block transmission of any file containing data that violates corporate security or regulatory compliance. Additional safeguards include SEEBURGER-exclusive guaranteed file delivery even over unreliable network connections, encryption, authentication, and checkpoint and restart capabilities.
SEE MFT also provides the industry-first ability to consolidate all human-to-human, human-to-system, system-to-system and EDI/B2B supply chain messages shared both internally and externally into a single view for easy auditing, reduced IT overhead and single-vendor accountability. Other unique features include support for unlimited file sizes, automated endpoint provisioning and management, and built-in process management.
"Unstructured data like Word documents, Power Point presentations and multimedia files is shared both inside and outside corporate firewalls tens of thousands of times every day, but conventional file transfer strategies like FTP, web sharing and physical media like USB sticks are filled with security and compliance loopholes," said Rohit Khanna, EVP, Global Strategy and Corporate Development, at SEEBURGER. "These three awards for our SEE MFT solution suite, and particularly this new award for data leakage protection, highlight the ability of our managed file transfer technology to plug these loopholes, prevent data loss, and thwart security breaches that can jeopardize a company's reputation as well as its bottom line."
SEE MFT is available in four deployment options — on-premise software, private cloud, public cloud, or managed services — and offers rapid implementation as well as fast ROI.
