Background

A large technology solutions company is providing transaction settlement and data informationservices to over 15,000 retail locations, and is processing more than $80 billion annually through their world-class settlement system – making them the financial backbone for their industry. The company processes and transfers thousands of files and reports every day on behalf of their global customers. Details on more than 1.5 billion individual data points, nearly 150,000 unique origins and destinations, and over a 1,000 days of accumulated sales data are stored in the company’s data warehouse. The company averages over $6 billion per month in settled transactions.

 

Challenges

  • Auditable automated report delivery
  • PCI compliance
  • Proof of SLA requirements

The company needed a way to generate automated reports from their existing systems and deliver them securely through email to their worldwide customers. Their existing system was in its End-of-life cycle, and had to be replaced quickly. They also needed better metrics to prove files were being delivered in a timely manner as well as measure performance for management. This all had to be done without requiring their customers and partners to install additional hardware or software.

Lack of security options with their old system was also a point of frustration, and a logistical nightmare when connecting customers did not have compatible security options.

 

Like many other organizations in their industry, the company was also looking for ways to streamline their processes and increase productivity while maintaining PCI compliance. They intended to initiate an online password challenge protocol in the event that customers’ passwords were lost. This required a two factor authentication process they could not do with the previous system.

The Solution

DataMotion’s Secure Mailbox

The company evaluated DataMotion’s secure mailbox along with several other vendors. They chose the secure mailbox because of the system’s robust security, and the platform’s flexibility allows them to customize and grow as needed. Knowing the DataMotion solution is one they intend to keep for years to come, the company has been building applications around DataMotion solutions.
