Feeling secure about information exchange
Connecticut Community Care Inc. (CCCI), a care management service for the elderly and individuals with disabilities, was searching for a better way to manage information exchange. Its requirements included HIPAA-compliant security policy enforcement, the ability to route and process files based on customer and payer profiles, a scalable architecture that would support anticipated growth in file transfer volumes, and a simple Web experience interface for users.
CCCI selected Attunity's Managed File Transfer platform, RepliWeb-MFT, because of its portfolio of encryption policies, user authentication, audited delivery options and secure transfer protocols. Attunity says that its solution offers a combination of user, system and application interfaces that enable tight integration with CCCI's existing business processes and workflow.
Charlie Forish, director of information systems at CCCI, says, "Information exchange is a critical aspect of business operations, and providing a secure, reliable means to manage daily exchanges with hundreds of partners is a strategic business initiative. Out of the box, RepliWeb-MFT offers an intuitive, friendly Web experience, and its Web services API allows us to incorporate a secure ‘drop box' into our existing Web infrastructure. In both cases we have the flexibility to invoke various security or inspection policies. The resulting solution helped us achieve rapid adoption by our partners and internal business groups, and meet our information security requirements."
The solution is said to provide back-end automation capabilities that allow CCCI to effectively process and route files throughout its internal systems, improving its ability to analyze and access business-critical data.
"We didn't expect a single solution to accommodate such a wide variety of needs," Forish says. "In fact, we feared having to build something from scratch. However, Attunity's systems integration team quickly made sense of our requirements, assisting throughout the planning and implementation phases. From a product perspective, RepliWeb-MFT immediately provides us with a highly stable solution that keeps everyone happy, including our partners, budget officers and compliance managers."
