Minimising expensive paper trails and manual points of contact requires policy management that effectively secures and controls information flow throughout your trading community. You can think of policies as electronic file folders that contain all the rules and details of a business process, and you can make them available to your extended business – including customers, suppliers and partners — on a “need-to-know” basis.
Axway solutions enable you to centrally define, manage and enforce policies that govern the various interactions within your trading community. You can establish universal policies that apply to your ecosystem as a whole, and specific policies that define how constituents and groups are allowed to interact with one another.
- Delivery-based policies: Define policies that govern who can interact with whom, based on where they “live” in the ecosystem. These policies can apply to any kind of interaction between systems, groups or individuals.
- Content-based policies: Establish policies that analyse the content of files and email messages (and their attachments) to protect against data loss, security breaches and contravention of regulations. You can automatically identify a wide range of sensitive information, including Social Security and credit card numbers, customer and personnel data, and intellectual property and trade secrets, as well as reduce the risk of data breach thanks to powerful Data Loss Prevention capabilities.
- Policy enforcement and actions: When a breach in policy is detected, you can automatically take action, including blocking or quarantining the interaction or removing an attachment from an email. You can return the message to the sender, notify a manager, edit information or re-route the communication to a secure, encrypted channel for delivery.
Axway solutions also provide the real-time event monitoring, reporting, auditing and analytics needed by business and IT managers to fast-track low risk processes and highlight high dollar, high risk or unusual transactions.
