In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

-Makes secure messaging and file transfer easy – no longer an IT-heavy function, it’s easy enough for end users, but satisfies the security, control, and visibility needs of IT administrators and compliance officers.
-Designed from the ground up with a security-first mindset. This includes segregating customer data, pseudonymization of files, end-to-end security (both at rest and in transit), encryption key management, and roles-based access.
-Cloud-based and easy to deploy, the integrations with existing file repositories (users’ PCs, network shares, other cloud storage repositories) make Transit a central hub for making disparate data sources accessible in a single location.

Brief Overview

Biscom Transit is a cloud-based, secure file transfer and messaging solution. Designed with an intuitive user interface that mimics the look and behavior of email, Biscom Transit enables organizations to easily and securely share confidential files and private data.

A recent national study from Biscom revealed that 75% of employees admit to sending private and confidential data through insecure methods like email. Respondents named complexity and time as the primary reasons for non-compliance. These rates were only worse for regulated industries, with employees working in industries such as financial services being 33% more likely to say the tools they use are too complex.

By integrating directly with user’s email and existing cloud storage solutions like Dropbox, Transit addresses these issues with a simple user experience that does not sacrifice security in the back end. Built for regulated industries that process highly confidential information such as healthcare and financial services, Transit also meets the security requirements of the most stringent organizations, while continually giving an organization more security, more control, and more auditability for complete visibility.

With security as a core component, customers are less likely to be exposed to malicious attacks, maximizing their security posture:
-FIPS 140-2 certified AES 256-bit encryption required for federal government
-Multi-tiered/multi-tenant architecture for security and privacy
-Acceleration built into the system to speed up large file transfers
-Pseudonymization for GDPR compliance
-Integration with enterprise authentication systems for single sign-on
-Built-in anti-virus/malware detection
-Compliance role to provide additional visibility for auditing
-Multi-factor authentication
-Secure email replies
-Data retention policies
-Encryption key management

As the technology environment can be extremely fluid, Biscom believes in supporting not just current needs, but future requirements. The extensibility and scalability designed into Transit help ensure that ever-changing technology landscape, and is designed to be (as much as possible) a future-proof solution.
