There are solutions like GoAnywhere or Axway where the usability and flexibility is so easy. SFG has a legacy we have to deal with. I know they have pretty big clients and are one of the prime vendors. I'm not talking about the latest version of SFG, I haven't had a chance to look at it. If what they promise is correct, it might be a big improvement. I would rate this product a two out of 10.

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this solution as a ten-out-of-ten. In the past, it seems the whole industry adopted this solution because it was the leader in the field. Whether their whole architecture will be adaptable enough for the cloud is something that needs to be studied further.

I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because it's a bit complex, not so simple. It's one product but there are many screens.

The only limitation of this solution is that you have to pay to expand it, other than that it's stable and flexible. Plan your upgrades very carefully, and go through the documentation. It's a fairly stable product, but there are always other products on the market. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

We exchange many files with our partners. So our primary use case for this product is for our partners to securely send us files for processing.

It's reasonably priced at $800,000. That's the annual maintenance cost. You have to pay to expand your additional platform.

There are two types of customer licenses, an annual preview license, and an ELA-based license. I have found the solution is priced well. However, they need to review the pricing model because if you look at any other competitors, such as GlobalSCAPE, they do pricing based on the components and what you select. With this solution you have a monolithic application which you need to buy, there is no component level price discount.
