Crawford Technologies Supports Box in the Cloud

Riptide now provides secure confidential business information via the Cloud using Box


October 20, 2016, Toronto, Ontario – Crawford Technologies announced its support for Box in the Cloud. This new enhancement to the Riptide Server product allows organizations to automate the secure delivery of documents from repositories to users inside or outside their organizations using the cloud-based Box system.

Many organizations struggle to find ways to extend their confidential information and documents to their customers, partners, regulators and supply chain staff in a secure, automated fashion. A secure, cloud-based system like Box provides an ideal solution to facilitate this sharing of information.

Riptide has the ability to pull documents from multiple repositories such as IBM FileNet, IBM Content Manager OnDemand, bundle the documents together, convert them to any format and deliver them securely through Box, where they can be accessed from any device via the cloud.

“As the ECM market undergoes change from established on-premises ECM systems to new cloud-based solutions, we feel that this solution offers organizations the best of both worlds as well as a short implementation timeline and the least re-tooling,” said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies. “Customers have asked for a solution that ensures secure delivery of sensitive information and collaboration capabilities in the cloud, and the combination of Riptide and Box provides a straightforward and viable answer to those requests.”

An ideal document delivery infrastructure, Box provides easy internal and external file sharing, and allows organizations to stop sending unsecure, large attachments via email. It provides enterprise-grade security allowing people to sync securely with end-to-end encryption.

With Riptide, organizations can scale their content solutions as their needs grow with Box’s integrations across IBM solutions, as well as leading business applications. It facilitates customized Box shared links with passwords, expiration dates and controlled download access.

Riptide is available immediately, and can be purchased from Crawford Technologies, IBM and selected partners. Crawford Technologies will be demonstrating the software at the IBM World of Watson conference in Las Vegas October 23 – 26.
