TAL deploys MFT Gateway for largest apparel company

TAL required an AS2 communications solution to securely exchange messages with one of the largest apparel companies in the world on behalf of its customers. The AS2 solution in use was over 20 years and had already become obsolete and without support. It could not handle the increased size and number of incoming messages and required regular rebooting to keep running, which was a complete nightmare to the TAL team.

TAL found out and investigated the MFT Gateway solution by Aayu Technologies LLC, and was happy to evaluate it with a free sign up and a free trial. During the evaluation, TAL configured the hosted Software as a Solution (SaaS) version of the MFT Gateway to integrate with an external organization. This allowed TAL to try out the system and understand its ease of use and the advantages of the MFT Gateway.


TAL requested Aayu Technologies to deploy the MFT Gateway solution and the deployment was extremely smooth without a single problem. The system was moved into production from February 2022 and is successfully processing messages each day as expected. Not a single issue was encountered after deploy  ment of the MFT Gateway solution. The success of this initial deployment led TAL to use the same MFT Gateway for a second deployment with sftp connection which will soon be deployed into production.

"With a 25 year old IBM WebSphere Application Server that could not support the type and size of the messages we needed to exchange with our trading partners, we finally had to make a switch. Having tried MFT Gateway and seeing how easily AS2 integration can be achieved, we immediately switched to MFT Gateway. We never had a single issue after the migration. The support has been very responsive and extremely helpful."
