Group Logic's MassTransit Placed as Visionary in Magic Quadrant

September 22, 2009 in Networks and FTP (E)

[] Arlington, VA - Group Logic, the leading provider of enterprise class connectivity solutions, announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned it in the Visionaries quadrant. Gartner's Magic Quadrant evaluations are considered by many to be the definitive industry guide to vendors and solutions. MassTransit offers a rich set of enterprise class features previously only available from the most expensive solutions on the market. These features include a drag-and-drop user interface for file sending and receiving, a fast and secure delivery protocol, visual reports that track file transfers and overall system performance.

"Companies should consider managed file transfer (MFT) suite vendors that meet short-term tactical and long-term strategic needs. It's all too easy to react too quickly and procure and deploy technology that supports only one protocol or security standard," writes Frank Kenney, Research Director for Gartner, Inc. in "Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer" published 18-September, 2009.

Group Logic got its start in managed file transfer solutions by focusing on the media, print and publishing industries. These companies are among the most demanding file transfer customers in the world as very large digital files are the lifeblood of their business. Many of these customers transfer hundreds of gigabytes of data each week across hundreds of users spread across the world. Group Logic is proud to include on its customer list a majority of the world's top publishers, nearly all of the largest printing companies and many of the world's largest media companies. With the feedback of these customers, Group Logic has built one of the most innovative file transfer solutions in the world. Today, Group Logic's customer list spans more than a dozen different industries ranging from hi-tech to manufacturing to healthcare.

"We believe this is a very strong placement for a company on a Magic Quadrant," said T. Reid Lewis, a founder and the chief executive officer of Group Logic. "We are seeing tremendous interest in MassTransit across almost every industry."

Group Logic offers two complementary product lines:

ArchiveConnect enhances the way Mac desktops interact with file archiving solutions allowing organizations to use file archiving to cut their storage costs by up to 80%.

ExtremeZ-IP is the leading Windows-based AFP file and print server that allows Macs to seamlessly connect with Windows servers.
