South River Technologies Combines Managed File Transfer and Enterprise File Sharing in New Cornerstone MFT

New Release Enables Better IT Oversight and Reduces Security Risk, While Providing an Easy Solution for User Productivity

ANNAPOLIS, MD--(Marketwired - Jan 13, 2015) - South River Technologies Inc. (SRT), an innovator in secure file transfer, has incorporated enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) capabilities into version 11 of its managed file transfer (MFT) solution, Cornerstone MFT.

The new version of Cornerstone addresses the security threat faced by businesses as employees turn to consumer-grade EFSS solutions for business use, frequently without permission or visibility from the IT or governance departments.

Michael Ryan, CEO of South River Technologies, said: "South River Technologies has been offering secure file sharing for over ten years. It became clear to us that our MFT customers needed easy and secure file sharing, while businesses using our file sharing solution needed to gain the security, automation and reporting available in our managed file transfer product. We decided to meet that clear need for a combined solution." 

Available immediately, version 11 of Cornerstone MFT is a simple to use, cost-effective file sharing solution that for the first time combines the security benefits of managed file transfer with the productivity enhancements of EFSS. Cornerstone MFT integrates with existing authentication systems while meeting or exceeding security and compliance standards.

"We began experiencing immediate improvements to our processes," says Frederick Curry, Director of Information Security for the Children's National Medical Center regarding their Cornerstone implementation. "And the solution provided us with greater security which assists us in meeting our regulatory requirements."

South River Technologies offers full-function trials of Cornerstone MFT, available for download at: www.cornerstonemft.com/cornerstone-mftdownload.

"If companies do not provide easy, secure, enterprise-grade EFSS, users will default to using what's available to get their work done," continued Ryan. "Not only does this create risk relative to security and regulatory compliance, it also means that employees are able to take confidential corporate data with them in their personal accounts when they leave the company."
