Ipswitch Managed File Transfer "Ticks All the Boxes" for Systematic
Date: 10 May 2018
IT solutions provider Systematic have chosen Ipswitch MOVEit Transfer as their MFT (Managed File Transfer) solution, describing the offering as "ticking all the boxes" after evaluating other competing solutions.
With over 1000 members of staff and a presence in more than ten countries globally, Systematic required a platform for delivering their software releases and packages to their customer base.
"The biggest challenge we are facing is that we are moving from annual releases of our software to a model of continuous development and more frequent releases." - Tim Timmins, Senior Manager of Business Applications and Support at Systematic.
"We had a very robust solution beforehand which was very secure. But it was very labour intensive. We needed something that was equally or more secure and that has a very good administration interface." - Tim Timmins, Senior Manager of Business Applications and Support at Systematic.
A Formidable Success Criteria
Chris Payne is Managing Director of Advanced Cyber Solutions, Ipswitch's partner of the year for Northern Europe and supplier of Systematic's Ipswitch MOVEit Transfer solution.
"Systematic had a formidable list of requirements which needed meeting, they really kicked the tyres of the solution during their evaluation and trial period." - Chris Payne, Managing Director for Advanced Cyber Solutions.
Tim Timmins noted that the evaluation team were particularly impressed by Ipswitch MOVEit Transfers security features, adding that both ITAR (International Trade in Arms Regulation) and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) are major drivers for any solution they choose to implement.
