Data delivery services are traditionally costly and often times lack the security and compliance features required by organizations today. Aiming to fill that gap, cloud-based data delivery service provider DataMotion has rolled out its next generation DataMotion Platform, which is available as a public, private or hybrid cloud service.
To secure “data-in-motion” across various communications channels, businesses often rely on point products from multiple vendors, which results in a complicated and costly infrastructure that is difficult for IT departments to manage. In addition, it requires end-users to learn multiple new systems for secure data exchange. As a result, they often resort to old-fashioned manual processes or, worse yet, non-compliant Internet solutions, DataMotion officials said.
The firm’s platform-as-a-service (PaaS) makes it easier for businesses to cut the cost and complexity of delivering electronic information to employees, customers and partners in a secure and compliant way, according to DataMotion Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Bob Janacek.
“The DataMotion Platform has been proven in production for over a decade as the technology underlying our packaged products for secure delivery of email, files and electronic forms data,” Janacek said. “Now it is available on a broader basis as a data delivery service that can be used within virtually any workflow in an organization. We do this in a very simple way that enables organizations to solve any number of data delivery challenges with a unified, easy-to-use approach.”
Company officials said the DataMotion Platform improves on traditional approaches by providing a unified, secure and compliant cloud-based hub for delivering messages, files and forms. It integrates disparate systems in a fully auditable manner secured by “military-grade” encryption with advanced reporting visibility into all transactions.
For example, U.K. charity Citizens Advice said it has implemented DataMotion to help serve its clients across the U.K. who are in needs of legal, financial or other assistance.
“The DataMotion platform has been a vital component in delivering our services to citizens across the U.K. It quickly and easily helped us integrate disparate processes and third party systems, while giving us the assurance that confidential data is always encrypted when in transit,” said Danny Golding, development manager, Citizens Advice. “This offers us a very cost effective solution because it plugs right into our architecture using standard APIs and protocols, no end-user training was required.”
The DataMotion Platform offers a transaction-based pay-as-you-go business option, so organizations can start with smaller deployments and scale to any number of transactions. Other features of the platform include:
- On-demand reporting, rendered through a Web interface or parsable format;
- Easy-to-use encryption, requiring no public key infrastructure (PKI); and
- Transparent integration with popular applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, Novell (News - Alert) GroupWise, Salesforce.com, Citrix and smartphone and tablet devices.
The DataMotion Platform is now available to end-user organizations. This week, DataMotion also announced its availability to integrators and solution providers seeking to add secure data delivery services to their clients’ projects.
