Ad Hoc File Transfer
Ad Hoc File Transfer is an innovative solution that combines the security and reliability of managed file transfer with the simplicity and familiarity of email.
Today, most people turn to either email or cloud based file sharing as their default file transfer solution. The main reason? They’re both simple to use. Unfortunately, simplicity isn’t the only characteristic needed in file transfers, especially in an enterprise setting.
Limitations of many email and cloud file transfer solutions:
Files can be intercepted and viewed by unauthorized individuals, thereby compromising company privacy
Subject to often unacceptable size limits that prevent users from sending large, business-critical files.
Difficult to monitor, control and audit, thus undermining regulatory compliance initiatives.

Centralized management system designed for strict control, monitoring and auditing
Data Loss Prevention automatically detects sensitive data

All these, presented via a very ubiquitous interface: email
