Ad Hoc File Transfer Aerospace and Defence
How Does Ad Hoc File Transfer Address The Issues of the Aerospace and Defence Industries?
The aerospace and defence industries are global and increasingly distributed. This is a good thing, creating opportunities in the market on a multinational basis.
But globalization means increasing competition met with political instability and nervousness about increasing oil prices.
Budgets are suffering austerity cuts and economies are in the long process of recovery. If there is one universal objective in aerospace and defence, it is to cut operational costs.
How do you balance decreasing costs against the demands of compliance and cyber threats that are increasing by the day?
Balancing the Supply Chain
Enterprise efficiency depends on demand forecasts, and demand forecasts depend on secure data exchange.
By understanding your supply chain, you can source inventory and manufacturing capacity that meets the demand of your enterprise, without taking costs out of control.
Increasingly, the aerospace and defence industry is fighting back with increased mergers and acquisitions creating consolidation in the market. As a result of companies merging – often on a global level – IT infrastructures and business processes need to mesh together seamlessly.
Users that were discrete now need to interact efficiently and securely, across different systems and infrastructures.
Fluctuation in Staff Numbers
Against this unique backdrop of change and consolidation, the information flow between multiple projects, contractors and the supply chain has to be:
- Audited to meet standards including ITAR
Ad hoc file transfer solutions can address the problems of the aerospace and defence industries in a simple, efficient and cost-effective way.
Why is Ad Hoc File Transfer a Suitable Solution?
The aerospace and defence industries need effective methods for transferring confidential data on an international basis.
Ad hoc file transfer enables employees to send messages and files as secure packages on an ad hoc basis – as and when required. Recipients receive an email with a unique, identifying link to the email or file attachment that they require. They can then download this data securely.
Dwindling budgets leave little room for developing new IT skills in the aerospace and defence workforce.
Integrating fully with your existing email clients, ad hoc email and file transfer requires no end-user training. You can enforce your data protection policies and empower international file transfer, with little or no training spend.
Consolidating aerospace and defence clients need a solution that works across platforms and systems.Ad hoc file transfer does not necessitate key management, agents or special software – making it ideal for clients that work with contractors, supply chains and disparate systems.
