To safeguard private patient data in transit, IAC selects Axway’s file transfer and visibility solutions

SecureTransport™ to power IAC’s managed file transfer strategy; Sentinel to provide unprecedented visibility
  • 17 September, 2009 10:51

<p>SYDNEY, September 17, 2009 – Looking to better safeguard and monitor private patient data in transit, Insurers Administrative Corporation (IAC) has chosen Axway’s SecureTransport™ solution with Synchrony™ Sentinel.</p>
<p>IAC chose Axway SecureTransport to protect sensitive health and billing information between insurance companies and medical facilities. Axway’s Sentinel will help IAC gain unprecedented visibility across all file transfers. IAC, one of the US nation’s largest third-party administrators (TPA)¹ and a wholly owned subsidiary of The IHC Group, is in the process of deploying the solution across all IAC departments.</p>
<p>When planning to replace their proprietary file transfer protocol (FTP) system, IAC decided to implement a robust managed file transfer (MFT) solution. IAC conducted an intensive review of MFT solutions, during which they consulted several leading industry analyst firms. The recent merger of Axway and Tumbleweed created a single clear leader in the MFT market and solidified IAC’s decision to deploy Axway’s solution over four competitors.</p>
<p>“The integration between SecureTransport and Sentinel was exactly what we needed to ensure daily management of our file transfer activity,” said Ruben Ramirez, director of information technology at IAC. “This opens up a whole new world in terms of reporting and allows us to configure the dashboards to our specific needs.”</p>
<p>Based on open standards, SecureTransport with Sentinel will manage IAC’s heavy file transfer load as well as:</p>
<p>• Supports secure ad hoc and scheduled file transfers within a company’s infrastructure and with their trading community.</p>
<p>• Provides extended end-to-end visibility services for auditing, reporting, alerting and management of business and technical activity across the ecosystem.</p>
<p>“More frequently, companies like IAC are taking control of their sensitive customer data and choosing MFT over unsecure FTP,” said Joe Fisher, senior vice president of products and solutions marketing at Axway. “Axway is committed to meeting their demand for solutions that deliver security and efficiency – with visibility throughout the process.”</p>
