Inovis Positioned in the 2008 Managed File Transfer Magic Quadrant

Share Article

Inovis, a leading provider of on-demand Business Community Management solutions, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant in the 2008 “Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer” report1.

Although we have many active enterprise secure file transfer deployments today, Inovis, over the last year, has actively sold our solution directly into the Managed File Transfer and Secure File Transfer markets.

The Inovis BizManager™ software suite has included capabilities to support Managed File Transfer (MFT) applications for a number of years and is actively used by a number of companies across various vertical industries. Over the past year, Inovis has packaged its technology specifically for MFT-style deployments and has been actively marketing these capabilities. Inovis believes Gartner's inclusion of Inovis in the Managed File Transfer Magic Quadrant demonstrates that Inovis has the ability to meet the needs of companies that are looking to invest in strategic MFT solutions to securely move, manage and monitor the transmission of any types of data via any standards-based format or protocol.

According to the report, "it's all too easy to act reactively and deploy technology that only supports one protocol or security standard; it's much more prudent to deploy a product that can be easily expanded and upgraded to handle multiple protocols and multiple standards in a well-managed way that's fully auditable." The report continues that "Numerous factors cause companies to re-examine how they manage the movement of information from system to system, partner to partner and person to person. FTP alone is not a viable option to give you the insight, security, performance and, ultimately, the risk mitigation necessary to responsibly conduct business."

"Inovis can support the secure movement, management and monitoring of any type data or format to meet the most stringent compliance requirements of any industry," said Steve Cochran, chief marketing officer, Inovis. "Although we have many active enterprise secure file transfer deployments today, Inovis, over the last year, has actively sold our solution directly into the Managed File Transfer and Secure File Transfer markets."
