DataMovement Partners with Fortra to Launch GateKeeper for Secure Data Movement and Collaboration

Posted on November 8, 2021

8 November, 2021 — DataMovement today announced its new SaaS offering, GateKeeper, powered by industry-leading Fortra’ data security solutions. This innovative partnership will make it easier for organizations to access centralized and secure managed file transfer to help ensure peace of mind when exchanging sensitive data between systems.

The partnership aims to simplify and streamline secure data movement and data collaboration, to help reduce an organization’s in-house technical involvement. GateKeeper can be enabled either as Managed Software as a Service or as Software as a Service to fit whatever support and service is required for an organisation’s operating model.

GateKeeper’s cloud-based pairing of Fortra’ GoAnywhere MFT and Clearswift provides an easily managed, consistent, secure file channel. File upload services are easily embedded in existing sites or applications, with antivirus scanning, and optional active content removal applied to all file transfers. This activity is centrally managed, so the GateKeeper instance can be implemented and personalized across the organization.

“We are pleased to see this partnership launch, as there is a strong need for simplified, yet secure, file transfer processes offered as a managed SaaS solution,” said Brian Pick, Managing Director, MFT, Fortra.

“At DataMovement we are excited about our strategic partnership with Fortra and look forward to bringing leading, secure managed file transfer within easier reach of a wider audience,” said John Bell and Mike Ranson-Smith, Directors, DataMovement. “We know Fortra’ file transfer and additional cybersecurity products provide a rock-solid base for us to provide a seamless, secure, and ready-to-use managed service so our customers can get their data where it needs to be.”
