Making File Transfer Easier, Compliant and More Secure
An Osterman Research White Paper

Email is the primary file-transfer solution in just about every organization. For example, an Osterman Research surveyi found that only 22% of emails contain attachments, but more than 90% of the bits flowing through an email system are accounted for by these attachments. The reasons for using email as a file-transfer solution are simple: email is ubiquitous, it is based on industry standards, and it is very easy to use as a drag-and-drop file transfer utility.

This white paper discusses the critical importance of finding a better alternative to email as a file-sharing mechanism. It also provides information on the four sponsors of this white paper Accellion, Inc., Attachmate, FileCatalyst and Ipswitch File Transfer and their relevant solutions.
