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.

This is well suited in a high paced, collaborative work environment where a large volume of media needs to constantly be shared on a regular basis.I recommend this program if you need to share media with multiple partners, in smaller work settings this program might not be the best suited for media sharing.

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.

  • The upload and download speed is very fast compared to the other systems we have used in the past.
  • The file uploader has a progress bar which very accurately shows in both visual and percentage manner, the quantity of the file uploaded and time remaining.
  • Ability to send multiple files to multiple people. A lot of these file transfer systems dont have that ability, so its a great plus for a big organization.

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.

  • The upload window doesnt stay on top of the web browsers. It kept getting lost if another browser tab was opened.
  • The system lacks ability to customize the due notifications when the upload/download is completed. The users should be able to choose if they want a sound notification or another way to be notified of large uploads/downloads that take time.
  • Multiple downloads of the same name (same file)have no distinct file names automatically given by the system to distinguish between them. I think the system should prompt an error message in that instance.

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.

Aspera Managed File Transfer racks up evenly against its' competitors. I use different programs to share and upload media to different affiliates, however this program seems to be one of the most popular in the industry. This could be due to the ease of use, and the fact that media is able to be shared in a very fast time frame.

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.
