Recognizing the importance of good data security practices, the U.S. federal government has designated October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month(NCSAM). According to the Department of Homeland Security, NCSAM is designed to “engage and educate public and private sector partners through events and initiatives with the goal of raising awareness about cyber security and increasing the resiliency of the nation in the event of a cyber incident.”
bTrade, the industry leading compression and managed file transfer (MFT) provider, today announced that it will participate in NCSAM again this year through a variety of events/initiatives designed to raise awareness of data security, including a series of blogs of what we call “case studies of what not-to-do” in the world of data security.
bTrade’s case studies contain factual information that is sourced from documents filed in public cases/proceedings. These documents, combined with bTrade’s years of data security experience, give readers a unique look into how others drew scrutiny from regulators. Steve Zapata, bTrade’s CEO and President, described the purpose behind the case studies: “We offer these case studies because they can act as a preventative, of sorts. In our experience, there are few things more fundamental to successful data security practices than learning from what others did poorly, and then taking steps to ensure that you don’t go down the same path.”
The first case study has already been posted. To read it, as well as other National Cybersecurity Awareness Month updates, please visit bTrade’s MFT Nation blog at http://www.btrade.com/blog-mft-nation. You can get similar information by following bTrade’s Twitter feed, @bTradeLLC.
bTrade, the leading provider of compression and managed file transfer technology solutions, today announced that it has been recertified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). MBE’s are typically certified by cities, states or federal agencies, and the predominant certifier for minority businesses is the NMSDC in conjunction with its 35-40 regional affiliates.
NMSDC certifications cover a wide variety of businesses from small minority-owned organizations to billion dollar powerhouses. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, minority-owned businesses account for nearly $700 billion in revenues. MBE certification is accepted and generally required by many of the largest publicly, privately and foreign-owned companies, as well as universities, hospitals and other buying institutions. NMSDC has an impressive list of corporate members that represent a veritable “Who’s Who” in corporate America.
Steve Zapata, bTrade’s President and CEO, commented on the MBE recertification: “Many Fortune 500 enterprises and an abundance of small to midsize businesses look for solutions from high quality, innovative security technology vendors. We are proud to have earned recertification in this exclusive group of technology providers, and I see this as another important step in demonstrating our continued commitment of delivering innovative and secure managed file transfer software solutions to organizations worldwide.”
NMSDC has established stringent certification standards which identify bona fide minority businesses, and the regional Councils do the investigation to determine whether a business is worthy of MBE certification. For the recertification process, bTrade worked with the Southern California Minority Supplier Development Council (SCMSDC). SCMBDC performed a combination of screenings, interviews and site visits to establish bTrade’s eligibility. This feature distinguishes NMSDC from other organizations or entities that publish directories which allow “self-certification” as their standard.
In business for more than 25 years, bTrade is a profitable and growing software technology company with headquarters based in Glendale, California. bTrade continues to enhance its managed file transfer solutions, including TDXchange, and help organizations with their managed file transfer and data security needs.
“We are honored that the SCMSDC board determined that bTrade’s employees and business processes meet their stringent standards and granted us recertification,” said Zapata. “The recertification will help place our software technology in a favorable position for continued growth, and is especially meaningful to our relationships with those organizations that are engaged in supplier diversity initiatives.”
bTrade, the industry leading compression and managed file transfer(MFT) provider, announced today that it once again scored well in connection with an ISO 9001:2008 supplier evaluation, this time from its customer, Telered, S.A.
Telered is a Panamanian company that provides the electronic payments network for Panama. The shareholders of Telered are all the major Panamanian banks who demand infrastructure supported by state-of-the-art technology, including bTrade solutions. Telered maintains connections with many entities, both private (local and international) and public, through a communications infrastructure that transmits the information between the entities and the affiliated financial institutions in a secure and reliable manner.
Telered conducted the ISO 9001:2008 supplier audit for bTrade in June 2015. In this audit, bTrade was rated on key metrics such as product quality, expertise and experience of employees, timeliness and effectiveness of problem resolution, return on investment, and overall performance in the competitive market space. According to Yolany Leon, a Process and Quality Analyst at Telered, bTrade continues to score highly as a Telered supplier. Telered has been a bTrade customer for more than a decade.
“It is extremely gratifying to receive this recognition from our customer, Telered, S.A.,” said Steve Zapata, President and CEO of bTrade. “bTrade has always focused on continued quality, and this supplier rating reconfirms our mission to provide our customers with the highest quality products and services possible,” added Zapata.
