The BMW Group had a large variety of file transfer solutions in place used for exchanging files with external partners. Many of the solutions were home-grown and script based. The replacement of the unsecure protocols with secure protocols became necessary as to comply with BMW’s security policies. In addition, there was a need to offer a single solution for establishing connections with business partners worldwide, a solution that offered both ad hoc and automated processes. The infrastructure team at the group’s headquarters decided to carry out a full Proof-of-Concept with Axway SecureTransport. The hands-on experience gained through the POC enabled BMW to validate the fact that Axway SecureTransport was definitely the right solution for the Group.
