Axway positioned in the ‘Leaders’ Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer evaluation

  • 30 September, 2009 07:07

<p>SYDNEY, September 30 – Axway, a leading provider of multi-enterprise solutions and infrastructure, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of its "Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer."1</p>
<p>In September 2008, Axway acquired Tumbleweed Communications, a Silicon Valley provider of managed file transfer, email security and identity validation solutions, merging two market leaders in managed file transfer (MFT). Given Axway's long-standing position in the MFT market, the merger cemented Axway's reputation as the undisputed leader in this market, with deep domain expertise and an extensive global customer base. As a combined company, Axway is the only provider in the market today to manage, run, secure, and monitor all of a company's multi-enterprise interactions — emails, files, messages, services, events and processes.</p>
<p>With its comprehensive ability to secure files as they are transported externally and internally, Axway's managed file transfer solutions allow companies to easily track, monitor and protect sensitive data and communications. As a result, customers can comply with regulatory mandates and protect their brands by reducing the risk of a data breach or other security issues. Axway MFT helps companies consolidate and optimize disparate data exchanges between trading partners, while providing data loss prevention, content filtering, encryption, compression and high-speed transmission. The solutions are available in a variety of delivery models, including on-premise software and on-demand services.</p>
<p>The "Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer," authored by L. Frank Kenney, states, "Companies' needs for MFT have evolved into more-holistic requirements that include the ability to provide a set of services that enable various governance processes and policies related to the management, coordination and trust of the file transfer."</p>
<p>"As the 'digital generation' reaches the business world, the demand for ad hoc processes and sharing of files is growing exponentially," said Dave Bennett, chief technology officer, Axway. "We believe our position in Gartner's MFT Magic Quadrant clearly demonstrates that organizations can depend on Axway as their MFT partner. Our solutions give organizations the agility to manage the immense growth in file services, the security to prevent damaging data breaches, and the visibility into critical information exchanges."</p>
