OpenText Managed File Transfer 2013 Helps Organizations Improve Security and Compliance, Decrease Costs and Increase Business Process Velocity

WATERLOO, ON – November 20, 2012 – OpenText (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a leading provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) software, today announced the immediate availability of OpenText Managed File Transfer (MFT) 2013, which allows organizations to manage their file transfer processes, quickly, easily and securely.

“This new release of OpenText MFT is a significant milestone towards delivering the best Information Exchange solutions to our customers,” said Eugene Cherny, General Manager, OpenText Connectivity Solutions. “The new multi-server architecture offers unprecedented cost-saving, data security and user experience benefits for organizations looking to regain control of their file movements.”

The multi-server architecture allows customers to deploy a network of OpenText MFT servers across geographically dispersed locations in order to optimize the routing of files between users inside and outside the firewall. This architecture offers significant benefits to organizations that are struggling to take control of their file movements, including:

• Reduced infrastructure costs by selecting the optimum time and most cost-effective network segment for routing files.
• Improved security and governance for data-in-motion by segregating users and restricting file movements to specific servers or network routes.
• Increased performance and better user experience by intelligently moving files closer to recipients prior to being downloaded.

OpenText MFT also includes advanced data-at-rest encryption capabilities that facilitate regulatory compliance by encrypting the files that reside on the MFT servers in order to prevent the theft of intellectual property and mitigate the risk of data breaches. Data protection is further enhanced through the OpenText MFT Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 validated cryptographic module, which provides government-grade security.

Dispatch folder, new functionality in this release, allows users to automate and accelerate recurring file transfer operations. Using a dispatch folder, users can drag and drop files to a pre-configured desktop location which will automatically send those files to other users or file systems while maintaining the benefits of a fully-audited and secured file transfer.

Availability OpenText MFT 2013 is available immediately, directly from OpenText and through OpenText partners. For more information, please visit: http://connectivity.opentext.com/mft
