Advantco SFTP and PGP Adapters
Johns Hopkins University
Johns Hopkins has greatly benefited from the use of the Advantco SFTP and PGP adapters. We needed to retire our current scripts for PGP encryption and also find a SFTP client that worked seamlessly with SAP PI 7.1. We did evaluations of different third party products. Once we got into the evaluations we noticed that the Advantco documentation was excellent and on issues, some caused by us, the onboarding support was fantastic. Next, we gave a review for the Advantco PGP Solution, which needed a face lift and within the next release they met and exceeded the enhancements that were requested. They followed up to make sure they met our requirements and to get more feedback. We had a development question a few months after we went live with their solutions and their ticket system was easy to use. Again we got immediate feedback to help solve our issue. It also helped to insure that we had an integrated solution that gave another layer of encryption security for data and transmissions. We have successfully required and deployed the use of asymmetric keys to meet our strict requirements. I have no problems rating it 5 stars. Mich Wilhelmi / Systems Engineer for SAP PI

Advantco SFTP Adapter & PGP Module
Schering Plough
The products (sFTP and PGP adapters) are easy to install and to use, thanks to their smooth integration within the NetWeaver J2EE stack. But beside this, Advantco is providing a real commitment to support their customers cleverly and with swiftness in case of exotic requests arising in some projects. Good products and stellar support were the driven factors that made us pick Advantco to fulfill our sFTP and PGP requirements in an heavily validated Health care environment.
