COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (PRWEB) October 30, 2008
According to the study, security and usability concerns surrounding FTP and email-based file transport have driven leading, "best in class" organizations to adopt managed file transfer solutions in order to secure confidential and proprietary data. Secure, managed file transfer is a ubiquitous need – failure to adopt can result in data loss, lost productivity, and administrative headaches.
"The demand for secure, managed file transfer is exploding", says Carol Baroudi, senior research analyst at Aberdeen. "So many different pressures are all pointing in one direction.
