Seeburger Expands File Exchange through TechData's StreamOne Store

By

File sharing company Seeburger has expanded channel distribution of its enterprise file sharing program, Seeburger File Exchange (SEE FX), through Tech Data’s new StreamOne Solutions Store, which is now open to 60,000 U.S. resellers.

Tech Data’s channel of resellers can now sell SEE FX to their customers in a cloud deployment model through the StreamOne portal, which aims to ease the licensing, provisioning and billing of licensed, downloadable and cloud-based software for VARs.

Amid security breaches and data concerns, businesses today face increasing challenges when it comes to controlling the transfer of files. Seeburger’s channel distribution through Tech Data gives resellers access to a secure file sharing program that can be delivered securely in the cloud, according to Rohit Khanna, executive vice president of global strategy and corporate development at Seeburger.

“Every company today faces a challenge in controlling the transfer of business files, from document drafts, sales presentations, business videos and business contracts to engineering drawings and beyond. New controls are required to prevent data leakage, enforce policies on who is authorized to send what to whom, and document all file transfers for compliance and governance purposes,” Khanna said. “With the availability of SEE FX through Tech Data’s StreamOne Solutions Store, resellers now have easy access to an enterprise-class solution that can be delivered in the cloud and sold in any vertical market – including those that must comply with regulations such as SOX, HIPAA and GLBA,” Khanna stated.

Company officials said that by using SEE FX, resellers can give customers of any size the ability to centrally manage, protect, and trace ad hoc file transfers both inside and outside the corporate firewall, overcoming both the risks and the lack of control associated with conventional file sharing strategies such as FTP, Dropbox and YouSendIt. The company touts several advantages of its SEE FX enterprise file sharing services, which include:

  • Support for files of any size, bypassing the limitations of email attachments as well as other managed file transfer solutions.
  • User-friendly access by Web browser or Microsoft Outlook, eliminating the need to change users’ work habits. Once integration is set up, files transmitted through Outlook are automatically routed based on size and type without any need for user intervention.
  • End-to-end security including encryption, authentication, and guaranteed file delivery with the ability to restart transfers from checkpoints and automatic notification of transmission failures.
  • Centralized control, including a full audit trail of all file transfer activity as well as the ability to create file permissions, notify recipients, set data retention periods and the number of times a file can be downloaded, and establish other policies to thwart data leakage.
  • Integration with SAP, through a long-time partnership between Seeburger and SAP that encompasses all components of the Seeburger Business Integration Suite including trading partner integration and other managed file transfer functionality as well as SEE FX.
  • Lower total cost of ownership, including eliminating multiple FTP servers and associated administrative overhead.

A choice of data centers (Amazon Web Services or HP cCell) for hosting SEE FX in the cloud.

The hosted SEE FX solution available through Tech Data features pay-as-you-go pricing. Prices are tiered with options for 10-, 25-, 50- and 75-user licenses, with a free 30-day trial for up to 10 users available to resellers through May via the StreamOne portal.

In related news, Seeburger and HP Germany formed an agreement last month to make the company’s user-to-user file sharing available on HP’s new cCell Services Platform, TechZone360 reported.

The private cloud options of the multi-tenant HP cCell Services include a pay-per-use, HP-managed “cloud in a box” that can be deployed in the customer’s own data center to avoid capital outlays and maintain data on company premises. Seeburger officials said HP’s cloud service gives companies a unique advantage based on its on-premise private cloud model.
