Additionally, administrators may set policies requiring recipient identification, authentication and authorization before viewing the attachment, thus ensuring content confidentiality. If the message is forwarded, those security requirements stay with the attachment. Administrators may also limit authorization to the original recipient only, which prohibits others from downloading the attachment.
Axway File Transfer Direct lets users send large file attachments directly from within a familiar interface with virtually no change to the way they normally do business – and with no need to manage disparate applications or web sites. Here’s how:
