Web-based Secure File Transfer
BDS is a Web based secure file transfer solution and is accessible through most standard Web browsers, as well as many browsers on mobile devices and smart phones. The Web application shares many of the characteristics of a Web-based email application, including addressing recipients by their email addresses, a subject line, and a place to enter a message. Recipients are notified of their deliveries via email containing a message and an embedded URL. However, BDS goes beyond simple email functionality, and provides facilities for sending a secure message, automatic expiration, multi-level password protection, guaranteed return receipt, and flexible notification options.
With support for robust features such as integration with LDAP and Microsoft Active Directory, instant access to global address lists to access corporate contacts, drag-and-drop of files, and checkpoint restart, the Web client's advanced features and intuitive user interface components simplify the file transfer process, without forcing users to download and install a thick client.
The web client has no size limitations when sending files, and granular tracking and reporting shows exactly where your files are and who has accessed them. System administrators can configure and manage the majority of the system from the browser interface.
