Overcoming Key File Transfer Problems
Organizations must transfer enormous amounts of information to support a wide range of business processes. These processes can range from the exchange of content between supply chain partners to claims information between healthcare providers and insurance companies to payments between governments and banks. These content transfers must take place in a timely manner and be managed in a consistent, compliant and efficient way.

Ending the Threat of Weak User Passwords for File Transfer Servers
The confidential information stored on your file transfer server is at risk! Over two-thirds of users create simple passwords that can be hacked quickly—in less than one second, in many cases.

Retailers and merchant service providers are under increasing pressure to adhere to PCI DSS in an effort to avoid costly fines — and the even more detrimental loss of customer confidence that results from data leakage or data breaches.

Ipswitch secure file transfer solutions deliver a proven, simple, and innovative method for exceeding your PCI DSS compliance needs.

FIPS 140-2 Validated Cryptography
The U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) has requirements concerning acceptable encryption methods and strengths.

Evolution from FTP to Secure File Transfer
Do you know where your organization's confidential and sensitive files were transferred today? Are you sure they even made it to the right people and not the wrong hands? If you are concerned with the information- and data-sharing practices of your company, you are not alone.
