Secure managed file transfer

Corporate product data is your most valuable asset, yet it is frequently put at risk. DEXcenter is an easy-to-use solution that provides secure file exchange and traditional CAD automation on a vendor-neutral, SOA-compliant platform. When exchanged through DEXcenter, proprietary data is encrypted to prevent interception. Records of every exchange are maintained to validate what was sent, when it was sent and when it was received. Automated ITAR and EAR Export Regulation Compliance steps are included.
