Bitdefender antivirus bolsters security of innovative file transfer product

Bitdefender, the creator of innovative global antivirus software solutions, and Red Earth, the developer of Policy Patrol, email management software for Exchange Server, announced today the integration of their security know-how into the comprehensive Policy Patrol secure file transfer product.

Policy Patrol Managed File Transfer (MFT) has added an elite layer of protection with Bitdefender technology, the world’s most-awarded antivirus software. The Bitdefender integration helps Policy Patrol MFT protect companies from malware and other online threats and enhance the level of security when transferring files between companies and external contacts.

The cooperation between Red Earth and Bitdefender comes amid growing threats to corporate IT security, which has become an increasing risk-based focus for companies in the US and abroad. Building further on its secure file transfer features, including instant file transfer, privacy safeguards and central email attachment management, Policy Patrol MFT now offers the world’s highest level of anti-malware security.

"Policy Patrol MFT allows us to transfer critical business files instantly and securely, ensuring that our business processes run smoothly with less complexity and cost. Policy Patrol MFT also helps us gain central visibility into company-wide file transfers, allowing us to meet auditing and management requirements," says Policy Patrol client Devrim Kalmaz of Finansbank. "The integration with Bitdefender now provides the essential security needed to ensure that all data being transferred from and to the company is virus free before it is uploaded to the system."

“The addition of Bitdefender technology brings a whole new level of security,” says Mike Spykerman, CEO of Red Earth Software. “We are confident that this addition will further increase system security and provide our customers with the important peace of mind that their file transfers are safe with Policy Patrol MFT.”

“Bitdefender is pleased to have its industry-leading anti-malware technology integrated into Red Earth’s cutting edge file transfer software,” says Peter Laakkonen, Bitdefender’s General Manager of OEM and Technology Licensing. “The partnership between Red Earth and Bitdefender allows corporate users to collaborate and share files with confidence, without fear of malware infections and other cyber threats.”
