Unlimited Email Archiving Storage in the Cloud

Email is one of the best ways to track discussions and data exchanges between individuals and organizations. So it’s no surprise that in order to comply with a range of governance and transparency regulations, more and more organizations need to enable company email retention for at least five years.

What's more, requirements for archiving don’t just impact Financial Services. Large and small organizations across the board are now seeking to implement some form of archiving, and email archiving technology tops the list due to increasing regulatory compliance, litigation support, storage management and best-practice requirements.

As with any new IT requirement, finding the time and money to get the job done is a challenge, especially in today’s economy.

Axway Archiving is a next-generation hosted archiving solution that provides an affordable, reliable, and secure way to meet that challenge. Axway Archiving is designed to accommodate both email compliance-driven archiving (FRCP, SEC, HIPAA, etc.) and storage resource management needs — you can archive everything for all users.

Next-generation Cloud Infrastructure

Using a global cloud infrastructure, Axway Archiving combines ultra-reliable grid utility storage and elastic virtual computing resources with Web 2.0 technology and design methodologies to provide unlimited, instantly searchable storage that is 100% software-free.

Validation Authority


Axway Validation Authority Suite – The Most Widely Deployed Validator of Digital Certificates

Axway VA Suite protects mission-critical infrastructures by ensuring that revoked or invalid credentials cannot be used for secure email, smart card login, network access (including wireless), or other sensitive electronic transactions. With support for caching and replication of revocation data regardless of format, VA Suite enables cost-effective scalability across a wide range of operational environments, including hardware-software appliances and Java-based solutions for distributed or hosted environments.

Banks, businesses, governments, and defense organizations across the globe use Axway VA Suite for real-time validation of digital certificates within PKI environments.

Using protocols like OCSP and CRLs can help identify revoked entities; but knowing whose credentials are bad is just the tip of the information iceberg.

Validation is constantly evolving, and Server-based Certificate Validation Protocol (SCVP) is the emerging new standard. While OCSP-based certificate validation provides revocation status of digital certificates in a highly performant and scalable manner, VA Suite’s SCVP technologies take access validation to the next level, enabling applications to delegate both revocation-checking and path validation to a trusted server in a single request.

SCVP enables harvesting of an entity’s credential for the full range of their access rights, cross-validated across multiple certificate chains by highly accredited certification issuers. In real-world terms, this means that not only do you know John Smith’s credential status, you can also:

  • Enforce which applications and/or network locations John is authorized to access;
  • Enforce John’s level of email access and which corporate policies apply to his account, be he an IT admin or an HR director;
  • Federate John’s physical access rights across multiple buildings and/or geographic locations;
  • Provide visibility into the what, where, and when of each and every instance of physical and logical access.

VA Suite consists of several products that provide a flexible and robust certificate validation solution for both standard and custom desktop and server applications:

  • Validation Authority Server, a high-performance multi-platform server that processes client digital certificate status queries using a variety of protocols, including OCSP, SCVP, CMP, Compact CRL and VACRL.
  • Server Validator, a flexible client application for validating digital certificates from the most widely used secure Web servers and Web application servers.
  • Desktop Validator, a flexible client application that enables Microsoft Windows-based desktop and server applications to validate digital certificates via the Microsoft Cryptographic API (CAPI).
  • Validator Toolkit, a complete set of certificate validation functions, source code examples, and reference manuals that enables certificate validation integration into commercial or custom applications developed in C/C++ or Java.

These components may be used together or, leveraging open standards, integrated with existing solutions using OCSP or SCVP (RFC 5055).

VA Suite is CA-neutral and supports all widely adopted international security standards and open technologies:

  • Certified to meet Common Criteria (EAL 3), FIPS 201, NIST PDVAL, FIPS 140-2, and DoD JITC standards
  • SCVP compliant (RFC 5055)
  • Entrust-ready and IdenTrust-compliant
  • Part of the IdenTrust, SWIFT Trust Act, BACS, and Global Trust Authority financial trust infrastructures
  • Interoperable with leading cryptographic hardware, including products certified to FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and 4, as well as smart cards such as the DoD Common Access Card and the Federal Personal Identity Verification Card or national eID-card.

Ad Hoc MFT


Axway Ad Hoc MFT – Where Email and MFT Converge

Twitter may be the cool new kid on the Internet, but email is still the most popular. It’s everywhere, used by nearly everyone. According to IDC/Ferris Research, email volume is growing at a rate of 66% annually. Research also shows that file attachment sizes are increasing by 192% a year, a result of more and more people relying on email to exchange large and/or sensitive files with partners, vendors, customers, and team members.

That’s a problem.

As file attachments get bigger and bigger, email administrators respond by imposing attachment size limitations on senders, recipients, or both. The result? Well-intentioned users turn to more expensive and higher-risk means of file transfer, such as sending them via unsecured FTP, or downloading files to CDs and thumbdrives. These methods are risky at best, and may lead to the kind of data breach that compromises business relationships, intellectual property, and corporate brands.

Risk of data loss and security breaches:

How do you know if a file transfer is exposing sensitive information assets such as customer data, product plans, or business forecasts? How do you protect that kind of data as it travels over the Internet, or prevent it from leaving your email network in the first place?

Once a file is sent, do you have delivery confirmation? How do you know if the recipient is authenticated and authorized to view the attachment? What precautions are in place to enable or prohibit sharing large file attachments with your partners?

Without a governed policy-management system for ad hoc large file transfer, you’re risking legal liability, regulatory violations, and loss of priceless intellectual property — data might as well be written on a postcard or published on the Internet for all to see. A clear audit trail, delivery confirmation and the ability to securely share data with trusted partners is imperative.

Operational inefficiencies and rising costs:

Email wasn’t meant for sending 10 MB files, let alone very large (50 GB) files. Huge multimedia, CAD, and PDF attachments simply won’t go through email servers, and even sending multiple files of up to 50MB can overload or even cripple email servers and networks, while adding significant IT costs (and headaches) for infrastructure, management, and archiving. Plus, standard email doesn’t offer robust Managed File Transfer capabilities such as guaranteed delivery checkpoint/restart, file delivery confirmation, tracking, or auditability, making it almost impossible to prove a file was sent, or verify that it was received.

And when email systems and IT managers impose limits on attachment size, messages bounce, and people find other ways to exchange files, feeding the vicious cycle of rising costs and increased risk.

Get Real About Ad Hoc Network File Transfer:

Axway understands that people will continue to work the way they work, and that means using an email interface for ad hoc file transfer. Combining support for very large file attachments with content-based policy management, encryption, authentication, and tracking capabilities, Axway File Transfer Direct eliminates the infrastructure, cost, and security concerns that surround sending large and confidential files via email — without requiring end users to significantly change the way they work or download and master new software.
