Group Logic has released MassTransit 6.1, its high-speed, high-volume managed file transfer and workflow server for Windows and Mac OS X clients. The new version adds a number of features, including web portal interface for occasional users of the software and a redesign interface for advanced users. It also adds automated Active Directory-driven account provisioning and management, support for a Linux web client, and other "enterprise infrastructure" features.
There are now two ways to use MassTransit: a straight browser approach for newer users, and a browser plug-in for advanced users. The non-plug-in browser approach allows users to access a portal that enables users to sent files with three mouse clicks, according to Group Logic. The file transfers use secure HTTPS and can handle gigabytes of date. Users can send files to users in the directory, or type in an email address to send files over MassTransit.
The plug-in for advanced users adds more advanced encryption, automatic compression, and the ability to select and send hundreds of files in deep folder structures. Mac file attributes are retained during file transfer. The plug-in also enables users to create an automated workflow. There is now a Linux plug-in addition to the Mac OS X and Windows plug-ins.
Group Logic said that MassTransit 6.1 is "cloud ready," with the ability to install MassTransit server on a local server on a virtual server hosted a cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services. Other new enterprise features include new reports for optimizing file transfer performance, and support for international file and folder names with Unicode double-byte character set (DBCS) capabilities.
