Secure and managed file transfer have seen massive growth over the last few years due to the inherent weaknesses of FTP. Managed file transfer offers complete control and visibility of data as it flows around organisations and between them and their stake-holders.

Barry Davis Regional Sales Director for the UK said ‘We are very excited with signing HANDD in the UK. With Attachmate’s expertise in delivering robust products and HANDD’s extensive knowledge of the MFT market we feel that this partnership will help extend these offerings out to the UK reseller market’
In a recent survey carried out by Attachmate it revealed that numerous companies still use FTP or other legacy data transfer systems, even though 53 per cent of those surveyed realize that these methods do not meet current security standards. Thus, it comes as no surprise that data security is viewed as their greatest challenge.
