MessageWay Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance managed file transfer (MFT) solutions, today announced the award of its General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule for Federal Supply Schedule 70. In addition, MessageWay Solutions was designated as eligible for both the Cooperative Purchasing and the Disaster Recovery Purchasing programs, allowing states and localities to procure its products through GSA Federal Supply Schedule 70. MessageWay products are already in production in multiple federal and state government sites, including the United States Postal Service, the United States Department of the Interior, the state of Michigan, and the state of Montana.
Managed file transfer solutions are being deployed by government and enterprise IT organizations to increase security and establish centralized operational control over internal and external file movement by consolidating and remediating disparate FTP-based file transfer servers. MessageWay specializes in solutions for environments that have extreme file transfer requirements due to very high transmission volumes with tight delivery windows, high-value or sensitive information subject to strict regulatory compliance requirements, complex data format translation needs, or very large files that can range from gigabytes to terabytes in size. MessageWay provides a combination of managed file transfer and comprehensive data translation with full visibility and control over the file exchange process for one of the largest users of electronic data interchange (EDI) in the world - the United States Postal Service. At USPS, MessageWay routinely manages the translation and delivery of over 5 million files per month. Similarly, the State of Michigan, named the best state for effective governmental use of Web-based technology in Brown University's annual e-government analysis, relies on MessageWay for file sharing across twelve state agencies, including the delivery of an average of ten million HIPAA-compliant claims each month.
"MessageWay is powering some of the largest, most critical bulk data exchange operations operating today," said Greg Faubert, president and CEO of MessageWay Solutions. "Governmental entities in the United States, the United Kingdom, Norway, and South Africa all rely on MessageWay to securely and accurately deliver essential high-value files. Our government and enterprise customers all continue to prove the robustness of MessageWay Managed File Transfer on a daily basis."
The MessageWay Managed File Transfer products are highly scalable and are available on multiple platforms and commercial data bases including Sun Solaris, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux, Windows, Oracle, and MySQL. Features and benefits of the solution include:
- Perimeter servers for inbound and outbound communications that eliminate the need to record interim copies of files on disk in unsecured areas.
- Comprehensive workflow, exception processing and granular scheduling automatically route actionable files to specific business applications - precisely when they are expected.
- Single-pass, "any-to-any" data translation eliminates the need for intermediate file formats and enables order-of-magnitude acceleration in processing speeds.
- "One-click" tracking displays a comprehensive lifecycle history of all file movement including parent/child/sibling relationships and file state changes.
- A full suite of client and server communication protocols FTP, FTP/SSL, HTTPS, SSH, SMTP/POP3, AS2, and Network File System (NFS) as well as third-party proprietary B2B products.
