File transfer failures? Missed SLAs? Too many gateways to maintain? Add more than 10 new trading partners a month? It might be time for an enterprise file gateway.
You can onboard trading partners rapidly, and protect yourself from threats and downtime with secure, automated file routing using IBM Sterling File Gateway.
IBM Sterling File Gateway is a unified file transfer portal that stands between your enterprise and its external collaboration partners. It automatically performs the necessary steps to format, secure, and route data, thereby facilitating the secure flow of vital information between your organization and its business partners or regulating entities.
Whether your customers prefer SSL or FTP or SSH or IBM Sterling Connect:Direct, IBM Sterling File Gateway’s built-in support for many protocols, encryption schemes, and security provisions vastly reduces the effort required to integrate with trading partners, regardless of how small and unsophisticated, or how large and complex.
By centrally managing trading partner file transfer requirements, file transfer errors are reduced. In addition, by having all file transfers processed through a single gateway, all transfers are easily traceable and you can provide users with visibility to the status of their file transfers.
Not only does a central file transfer gateway eliminate the security risks and costs inherent in managing multiple FTP servers, but IBM Sterling File Gateway enables you to quickly add and role out new security protocols and make them effective for all your trading partners.
If you have a mainframe or AS/400 environment, IBM Sterling File Gateway is the only B2B solution that can translate files directly from ASCII to EBCDIC. Other solutions translate your ASCII file to binary first, then to EBCDIC, which causes all file formatting to be lost, and files to become unreadable. By using IBM Sterling File Gateway, manual intervention due to unreadable files is eliminated.
