Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost is basically $100 a job, give or take."
  • "This is an area where it is a little difficult to work with BMC. They want to do licenses by job, which is what we have. For example, the simplest is to license by job, but they can also license by nodes. While the licensing is simple to use, it might not be the correct licensing model for the customer. It is okay because we want to license by job, which is something measurable. At the end of the day, licensing by job is the most important."
  • "The cost of the hardware is high. Because you need to license each job, it is costly."
  • "You're going to spend a lot of money upfront, but the benefits you're going to get out of it are going to quickly pay for it."
  • "Initially, our licensing model was based on the number of jobs per day. That caused some issues because we were restricted to a number. So at our renewal time we said, 'We want to convert from number of jobs to number of endpoints.' That cost us extra money but it gave us additional capabilities, without worrying about the number of jobs."
  • "BMC's price is based on the number of jobs."
  • "You must accept that BMC licensing can be very confusing. No one can easily understand how they calculate things, whether it is user-based, job-based, or server-based. The calculation is quite tough. How BMC calculates licensing is not easily available anywhere."
  • "There are human costs in addition to the standard pricing and licensing of this solution."

    CA XCOM Data Transport’s reliable delivery and automated transmission recovery features help maintain data integrity throughout the processing environment while supporting enterprise security standards with robust data encryption and auditing capabilities.

    Cornerstone MFT closes the security gaps in your current file transfer processes while improving efficiency and visibility. Secure file transfer is critical, but encrypting data while it’s stored on your servers is equally important. 

    Cornerstone is the only MFT solution with real-time PGP encryption of files, encrypting and writing data in a single step, rather than writing an unsecure version of the file and encrypting it in a separate step. Cornerstone also supports a wide variety of file transfer protocols. 

    Whether it’s internal security policies to protect your business, or government privacy regulations such as HIPAA, SOX or PCI, Cornerstone helps you to execute on your security initiatives. Cornerstone also offers the easiest way to securely share and collaborate on documents. With easy setup that can have users collaborating withing hours rather than weeks, Cornerstone is a cost-effective and secure collaboration solution. 

    Cornerstone enables sharing and collaboration without locally syncing files. Secure protocols protect transmission of shared files, and controls assure that unauthorized users are never able to gain access to files. Streaming encryption protects data at rest without leaving gaps in security.

    Cornerstone’s strong security doesn’t inhibit your users’ ability to be productive. Cumbersome additional steps can drive users to work around security measures by using commercial services for file sharing. Enabling users to work efficiently and in a familiar environment keeps processes under the control and management of your collaboration solution.

    The solution is used by international banks, healthcare services and government agencies where compliance and staying ahead of the latest security standards is critical. Cornerstone MFT is available on-premise, in the cloud or as a hybrid solution. For added protection, Cornerstone can be paired with the optional DMZedge server for perimeter security that doesn’t require copying files into an unsecure DMZ. 

    Cornerstone MFT was named Product of the Week by Network World in 2015, was named one of the best secure file transfer servers by ITT Systems in 2016 and was named a "Top Managed File Transfer Pick" by PC Magazine in 2018. Cornerstone also won a silver medal in the Secure File Transfer Category of the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in 2018 and 2019.
