Chelmsford, MA (PRWEB) January 7, 2009
Biscom Delivery Server (BDS), the trusted solution for enterprise secure, managed file transfer, announced the sponsored release of the white paper, "Why You Need an Intelligent File Transfer Solution" by Osterman Research. Written for IT professionals managing enterprise mail systems, the paper lays out why organizations must find new ways to transfer large and sensitive files to their customers and partners, which email is not able to handle.
Email Systems Not Equipped For Large Files, Security
Traditionally, organizations have relied on email for transferring files, but a sharp increase in the size of file attachments, and the need for greater security and auditing of those attachments is leading to lost employee productivity, higher storage costs, and decreased server performance. "Intelligent file transfer has become an obvious next step in the evolution of secure information exchange," noted Michael Osterman, president of Osterman Research. "Organizations that have it will realize significant cost savings, while being better prepared to deal with evolving regulatory requirements."
Providing Simplicity for IT, Transparency for End-Users
To address email's inherent limitations, Biscom developed the Biscom Delivery Server, a scalable, secure file and message delivery solution that allows email users to send and receive files of any size securely over an SSL-encrypted connection.
Built as a three tier Web services platform, BDS integrates seamlessly with enterprise email clients such as Microsoft Outlook®, so IT managers and email administrators can quickly support sending large files securely with no disruption to end-users.
The Osterman Research White Paper is available for download on the BDS Web site.
