Local Government

AMS File Transfer is used widely within Government Departments, Councils and Governing bodies throughout the UK. Increase security and modernise the way large and sensitive files are transferred, shared or collaborated on for your department, council or community

Keeping your data safe, at all times

The files that government departments, councils and governing bodies transfer, collaborate on and share often contain sensitive data. This information can relate to staff, members of the public, customers and suppliers. It comes as no surprise to us that our contacts in the public sector feel a real duty of care to protect this data as much as possible.

There are 3 core principals:

  • Data must be secure from unauthorised access
  • Data must be safeguarded against unauthorised modification
  • Data must be accessible at all times to the right people

Managing the security of files and personal data while being transferred or shared has historically been a challenging process. Without a central corporate solution, users will often find a workaround, which lacks control, security and audit trail.

AMS File Transfer makes the process of sharing sensitive information or large files with members of the public and external third parties simple and secure. Some examples may include processes such as pre-planning applications, Tourist information collateral and child services. The solution is easy to use and intuitive for both internal and external users and as you would expect your data is encrypted in transit and at rest.

The Problem

Planning applicants, Child and Adult Services teams, Tourist Information and other government departments often need access to sensitive information and large files for a variety of purposes. Traditionally this may have been achieved through a manual process, such as printing and posting, burning information to disk, and faxing.

The Solution

Typically, we work with these departments to eliminate legacy transfer methods such as FTP, SFTP and chunking emails. We secure the way they transfer, share and collaborate on this information. With our solution all your data is encrypted with 256-bit AES encryption and we can bypass all file type and file size limitations you may have encountered with traditional transfer methods.

The Advantages

By using our solution for your transfer and sharing requirements, the processes for staff and external parties including members of the community are simplified. The data is now completely secure, and you have full control over how information and files are transferred, collaborated on and shared.
