Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

I do not see where you would use this in any other scenarios. It's a purpose built system for sending and receiving data.

Aspera was able to perform at a greater speed for file transfers than our normal cloud-based sharing solutions. Our clients have been pleased with our ability to share key information faster.

Pros

Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

  • If you use Axway SecureTransport with their edge server. The system separates your user accounts from the first point of entry into the system. This is done by creating an edge device in your DMZ that acts only as a proxy to the backend ST server.
  • Their support has been really good when you have a questions or issues with the version you are on. They respond pretty quickly to your open cases.
  • I also like the fact that their system can be really customizable. This does take a little bit of knowledge of how the system works. I did go to a 4 day class that Axway provided back in version 4.
  • They support a wide range of security and automation when it comes to sending/receiving files.
  • They have low CVE vulnerabilities and they keep up with the latest security holes that may arise.
  • SecureTransport is a pretty solid platform and it's pretty hands off once it's up and running. We did have to tweak a few things regarding the memory allocated to the running services and there are a still few open bugs that are supposed to be released in the next SecureTransport. Those are not causing any issue on our side.
  • You can create different templates for your HTTPS sites. This is useful if you have different needs for your customers.

  • Very easy to configure, implement, administer, and support. In my company, we don't require a vendor to support Aspera. We have a dedicated team, which does the work for us. This makes it cost-effective.
  • Features include file-sharing options for users outside the organization. This is a great feature especially if you deal with multiple sales vendor who requires restricted access to your software. Aspera allows you to share certain software access files with them.

Cons

Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

  • I have come a cross several bugs that came up in their new releases, but this is kind of expected given they support a wide range of technologies in terms of B2B transfers or ad-hoc transfers.
  • Support is sometimes difficult to communicate with just because of them being out of India. They are responsive and know their stuff when it comes to SecureTransport.

  • UI is not always consistent nor working (drag and drop buggy in certain areas).
  • Missing contextual help.
  • Missing some granularity for the activity feature.

IBM Support is fast, knowledgeable, and works as a team. When I open a ticket, regardless of severity, I get an answer in an hour or less. A team of engineers looks at the problem and provides documented solutions, and even gives a post-mortem of an event so that we can easily understand what went wrong. I have never had a ticket open for more than 24 hours.

The service provided by the authorized vendor was excellent. It was a good collaboration between the vendor IT team and internal IT team. They provided us with a timeline and we verified and approved that timeline. Daily stand ups and weekly meetups were conducted to update the internal team on progress. They were able to deliver all deliverables on time also, they conducted both alpha testing and beta version testing in time. Overall, they were able to complete the implementation in the given timeline.

Alternatives Considered

Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

I have not used another product other than SecureTransport. I have only researched to see if there are any alternatives better. Frankly we just don't have the time to invest in switching either. SecureTransport does what it needs to do in our environment.

They are all good services as well for smaller files, but for large files using a service like Aspera is imperative since otherwise, you have to start an upload/download all over if it stalls or fails.

Return on Investment

Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

  • Once the system is set up and operational, the only internal support would be to configure new accounts or research failed transmissions. It's really hands off once you have it up and running. It doesn't require a bunch of support or baby sitting.
  • We are able to offer new services to our business customers which benefits both sides.

  • Ability to save time while uploading and downloading is a great way to quantify a positive ROI
  • Less time wasted on calls to the Helpdesk to check if the file made it to the sender. The system ensures that any file uploaded successfully is shown in the dashboard.
  • Dependability on the system ensures credibility with the clients and customers that their work will be delivered on time and with the great quality intact.
