Offers companies more secure option for file management, monitoring and process control

Chicago — April 28, 2006 — Supply chain management solution provider Click Commerce has introduced a new managed file transfer solution set designed to enable business process integration with a company's existing business systems so that they can automate manual business communication processes.

The Click Commerce TDIntegration Suite includes an updated version of Click's managed file transfer (MFT) software and provides a scalable, customizable solution for the transfer of critical data, the solution provider said.

"Today's extended enterprise is moving away from legacy and non-secure file transfer systems and searching for a standards-based solution to replace their disparate technologies," said Steve Cole, senior vice president of product management for Click Commerce. "We've made significant investments in the Click Commerce TDIntegration Suite in order to meet this growing need."

According to a March 2006 Gartner research report by L. Frank Kenney, entitled "Replacing FTP with Managed File Transfer: Not All MFT Suites Are Equal," "FTP enables file movement between disparate devices and systems, but it doesn't provide management, monitoring, security or process control. An MFT suite helps control all aspects of data movement, ensuring that they're fully managed and secured."

Click said its TDIntegration Suite provides functionality for routing, approval, transformation and integration services in order to securely move data throughout a company. The updated solution is bundled with a new release of the provider's TDNgine software.

In addition to TDNgine's secure, scalable, and reliable communications infrastructure, the TDIntegration Suite includes performance enhancements with multi-threading technology, beefed up security capabilities for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and increased user functionality with an upgraded and updated management platform.
