Industry Award for the OpenDXM GlobalX Outlook integration

Darmstadt, May 2016 – The Outlook integration for PROSTEP’s managed file transfer (MFT) solution OpenDXM GlobalX has been awarded the Industriepreis (Industry Award) by the “Initiative Mittelstand” for what is already the second time. The OpenDXM GlobalX Outlook integration ranked among the leading group of products and was awarded the distinction “Best of 2016”. The integration makes sending confidential files of any size with real end-to-end encryption as simple as sending an e-mail and ensures compliance with company-specific rules relating to the secure data exchange.

The Industriepreis is awarded annually by the publishing house Huber Verlag für Neue Medien in recognition of the economic, environmental, technological and social benefits offered by innovative industrial products in a variety of categories. These include, among others, IT and software solutions that help simplify and automate processes and workflows in industrial companies. The products and solutions are evaluated by an independent jury of experts comprising professors, scientists, industry representatives and trade journalists. The award ceremony is held during Hanover trade fair (HMI).

In 2014, the OpenDXM GlobalX Outlook integration already ranked among the leading group of products awarded the distinction “Best of 2014”. Since then, PROSTEP has added a Windows Explorer integration to the MFT solution, which also enables the secure exchange of data with real end-to-end encryption via drag-and-drop in the Windows graphical user interface. “We are proud that OpenDXM GlobalX continues to rank among the most innovative software applications for industry,” said Udo Hering, Head of Product Management, commenting on receiving the Industriepreis 2016.
