4 About Axway | © 2011 Axway | All rights reserved. 4 Integration B2B MFT Security Company 11,000 customers 1,600 employees HQ in Phoenix, AZ USA Offices in 20+ countries Industry-leading technology in Managed File Transfer (MFT) B2B and Integration and Identity Security

5 Gartner: Outlook On MFT / B2B | © 2009 Axway | All rights reserved. 5 Recommendations Governance for midsize to large MFT deployments. Look for a combination of proprietary & open source… Point solutions when speed of deployment is key. - standards, policies, architectures, consider strategic…. Ad hoc Outlook & Lotus Notes plugins…

6 | © 2009 Axway | All rights reserved. 6 File Transfer Challenges and Patterns

7 The File Transfer Challenge Complex data routing requirements Decentralized administration and maintenance Constantly modifying script (adds/changes/deletes) Resource intensive to add applications and user interfaces | © 2011 Axway | All rights reserved.

8 Problems: Compliance & audit concerns Data black holes Limited reporting Change management issues No centralized control No centralized visibility Process breakdowns Administrative burdens Batch orientation Security Encryption Authentication Data at rest FTP Across the Enterprise Internet Internal Gateways (Business Units) Internal Gateways (Business Units) 8 | © 2011 Axway | All rights reserved.

9 Application Integration Pattern Internal File Movement Between Systems –Peer-to-Peer / File Bus –Hub and Spoke Automated and Process Driven Centralized Governance Multi-Platform Considerations Do you have visibility to the data? (i.e., more than system monitoring) Are your internal systems secured? (at a minimum no FTP)

10 Multi-Site Integration Pattern File movement between systems across sites (hub/spoke or peer to peer) Centralized governance and site management Automated and process driven Broadcast/Collect Multi-platform considerations Deploy and manage multiple connections (efficiently) Automate, Automate, Automate

12 Business to Business (B2B) Pattern Connecting with other organizations –Standards driven –Context aware Community and partner lifecycle management are essential Automated and process driven Flexible security Often requires data services –Validation –Transformation –Routing Are your current tools able to address your needs? Do you have the business involved to help manage your trading community?

14 Portal File Services Pattern Connecting the human web experience and MFT Web portal exposing a business service User access and management (LDAP/AD, SSO, On-boarding) Transparent integration with end user workflow and backend systems More than ease of use (secure and efficient file exchange beyond the portal) Seamless and complete integration (no hops, batching, or queuing)

16 Ad-Hoc File Transfer Pattern Unplanned processes between humans Two models –Repository based (persistence for sharing) –Recipient based (targeted to individual or group) User access and management –LDAP/AD –SSO –On-boarding Policy based control of file access and transfer Can you audit and govern H2S/H2H exchange? (managing the humans is a must!) Define security up front and stand your ground

21 Managing Your File Transfer Patterns Scope out growth and complexity of data framework –Define and prioritize critical exchange relationships –S2S, B2B, A2A, P2P, B2P, B2C, etc. Quantify and qualify data content relationships –Outline support for business types, groups, or departments –Update compliance to standards and regulations Account for risk factors –Consider both external and internal security event paths –Identify the risk types (data loss, intellectual property theft, data privacy breach, compliance violations, etc.) Set realistic coverage objectives –What level? –How comprehensive or complex? © 2009 Axway - Confidential and proprietary.
