Earlier this month we released a comprehensive upgrade to our secure managed file transfer solution – Alliance FTP Manager. This latest release incorporates a number of existing Townsend Security products that were previously priced separately and features new capabilities. FTP Manager 5.2 brings together the existing products Alliance FTP Security, Alliance Cross Data, and Alliance All-Ways secure into a single product.
This is a really a big win for our existing customers as well as IBM i customers. Our existing Alliance FTP Manager customers automatically receive the upgrade to FTP Manager 5.2 and so do all of our existing Cross Data and All-Ways Secure customers. We know there are a variety of security challenges facing IBM i customers who send data over networks and FTP Manager 5.2 provides those customers with the most comprehensive and flexible Secure Managed File Transfer offering available.
Highlights of FTP Manager 5.2 include encrypted PDF and encrypted Zip functionality. The new encrypted PDF functionality allows customers to generate encrypted and un-encrypted PDF documents using a familiar interface. And now that FTP Manager 5.2 fully supports zip encryption to the WinZip standard it will provides IBM i customers with a new tool to meet compliance regulations. Users can create Zip files on the IBM i platform and then use a variety of delivery methods to send the Zip files to customers, vendors, and employees.
There are a lot of exciting things on the horizon for Townsend Security and our customers. This release of FTP Manager 5.2 is just the start…..October promises to be a month full of major accomplishments and milestones.
