[prMac.com] Arlington, Virginia - GroupLogic(R), the industry's leading provider of software products that unlock the power of new enterprise platforms, today launched a new version of its award-winning MassTransit(R) managed file transfer solution, designed to ease electronic transfers of large files in business environments. This significant upgrade adds an optional plug-in for Microsoft Outlook, substantially improving the end-user experience by allowing them to invoke MassTransit seamlessly from their existing email client in order to securely send large files.
To integrate MassTransit into Outlook, IT administrators need only to go through a one- time set-up of the plug-in for users, indicating what size attachments should be sent via MassTransit (versus as a regular email file attachment). They can choose to have all attachments sent via MassTransit, or only files over a certain size. Higher volumes of attachments sent via MassTransit will help reduce the load and traffic flowing through email servers, helping to save money on storage and email server licensing. Once the plug-in is configured, MassTransit is invoked automatically within Outlook to send attachments. Users do not need to take any additional steps to use MassTransit for file transfers; they just attach the file to an Outlook email as they normally would.
MassTransit is in use at some of the world's most innovative companies, including Christie's and International Greetings. Other enhancements in this latest release of MassTransit include:
* Check-Point Restore which ensures that when network connections are interrupted and then restored, MassTransit resumes the transfer from where it left off rather than starting from the beginning of the file. This is a significant time saver when sending large files.
* Web Portal Skinning, which allows companies to fully customize the look-and- feel of landing pages that recipients see when they access files, for brand consistency.
"We are pleased to offer this upgraded version to existing customers as well as enterprises in need of secure file transfer solutions," said Marcelo Andrieu, Product Manager. "We are committed to listening to our customers and the marketplace to bring to market innovative features like the Outlook plug-in that enables enterprises to ensure the secure delivery and encryption of files regardless of client software."
Pricing and Availability:
MassTransit 7.2 is generally available as of May 3. A free trial of MassTransit can be downloaded directly from the GroupLogic website. The MassTransit plug-in for Outlook is optional and priced separately, and may be purchased as an add-on by current MassTransit customers.
