Joint HelpSystems (now Fortra)-Clearswift Offering Named Finalist for Security Solution of the Year

Posted on March 21, 2019 | Infrastructure and Data Protection

MINNEAPOLIS – March 21, 2019 – Fortra today announced that its GoAnywhere managed file transfer application, in concert with Clearswift’s ICAP and adaptive redaction product, was named a Security Solution of the Year finalist for the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2019. These honors recognize companies that show excellence in developing effective methods of solving real business challenges within the European market.

Fortra and Clearswift came together in 2018 to deliver a new way for organizations to transfer sensitive information with an unprecedented level of security and oversight throughout the process. It’s the first solution of its kind to couple advanced threat protection and adaptive data loss prevention with secure managed file transfer (MFT). Not only does this combination ensure that data being transferred is only accessed by authorized people, but it also cleanses files of any malware or other threats that could compromise the information or lead to a data breach.

“We are pleased that this revolutionary joint solution has been named a finalist for this prestigious European award,” said Bob Luebbe, GoAnywhere General Manager at Fortra. “Our partnership with Clearswift helps our customers address a gap in their security postures, one that hackers will seek out in their efforts to gain access to sensitive information that can command a high price on the black market.”
