nuBridges Goes ‘Any-to-Any’ With New B2B File Transfer Tool
January 23, 2007 Alex Woodie
nuBridges this month launched a new business-to-business (B2B) file transfer product called Secure Transaction Manager that’s designed to transmit data over practically any protocol, including AS1, AS2, AS3, HTTP, HTTP/S, FTP, and FTP/S, using SSL2, SSL3, or TSL1.
nuBridges launched STM to fill what it perceived as a gap in the market for file transfer products. “Moving information isn’t getting any easier, or any safer,” says Gary Palgon, a product manager with Atlanta-based nuBridges. “Whether between companies, branch offices, or even departments in the same enterprise, it’s a challenge exchanging data with so many varying transfer protocols and file-size limitations.”
The product supports all the major protocols, and includes auditing and logging capabilities to fulfill compliance requirements. Non-technical users can use it to map document exchanges and set schedules, the company says, while more sophisticated IT users will find facilities for configuring information exchanges, protocols, profiles, authorizations, and certificates for individuals and groups.
STM also provides “near real-time” visibility into all file transfer activity, and “guaranteed file delivery” via automatic session retry and checkpoint restart capabilities. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Unix operating systems, but supports the iSeries and DB2/400 database as a source or a target of data.
Palgon claims STM is the first and only product to offer unlimited file-size transfers, both inside and outside of the enterprise, in a fully secure environment, over any protocol, that meets all audit and regulatory requirements.
STM is offered packaged, hosted, or as a managed service. Pricing was not disclosed. For more information, visit www.nubridges.com.
