Secure transfer and storage of large data files with new Adept TeamBeam service

Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts.) announces the availability of a highly secure, stable and reliable service for the transfer and storage of large sets of data. Adept TeamBeam, which stores and routes data through servers operating under the stringent regulation of the German Federal Data Protection Act, ensures that sensitive and private data transfers remain absolutely secure.

The safeguarding of intellectual property is a prime concern of Adept Scientific’s customers. Research results, design data, engineering calculations, product specifications, costing details and more need to be shared with colleagues and customers, often at remote sites. But can they be sure that email, FTP, cloud storage sites and other transfer methods are truly secure?

Adept is now able to offer what the company believes is the safest, most secure data storage and transfer method available today, with powerful encryption technology protecting sensitive data. An easy-to-use solution from as little as €99 per month, Adept TeamBeam provides a user-friendly but highly secure method of storing and transferring even the largest data files, making it an ideal solution for data-intensive corporations in science, bioscience, pharmaceutical, engineering and other technology-based fields.

The dedicated TeamBeam servers are located in Germany and consequently all data routed through this service are subject to strict German privacy laws. The German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) is one of the, if not the, world’s most robust data privacy regimes, and includes stringent regulation of cross-border transmission of data.

All data is securely stored on encrypted hard disks behind a 128-bit encryption key. TeamBeam uses SSL encryption (AES 256 bit or equivalent) for transfers in either direction (upload and download) via HTTPS.

Transferring data securely via Adept TeamBeam is simple. After selecting the recipient(s), imported from existing email contact lists, the user simply drags and drops files or folders into the TeamBeam transfer window, then clicks ‘send’. TeamBeam deals automatically with any connectivity issues and continues interrupted transfers as soon as the network becomes available again.

Recipients are notified by email, with a link to a secure web page to download the files. The sender then receives a delivery confirmation notification, or an expiry notification (with an option to extend the date of validity) if the recipient has not yet downloaded the transfer. For data protection purposes all data is deleted at the end of the transfer validity period; customers can request to have this feature deactivated.

For storage, it’s just as simple to upload files and folders to a secure TeamBeam drive. Individual drives can be configured for each user, with customised access rights.

Adept TeamBeam Server, which allows unlimited transfer volumes, is administered via a web-based interface; and each user has a personal log-in to access the data portal. Full reporting and auditing features allow administrators to keep track of all transfers and usage. An optional checksum feature can be used to verify the content of each transfer, providing full traceability.

Optionally, specified users can be authorised to receive data from external business partners (who do not need their own TeamBeam account).

All TeamBeam components can be custom-branded and integrated into corporate design schemes; and TeamBeam supports English, German and French. Adept TeamBeam is available for both Windows and Mac.

A highly affordable Adept TeamBeam Personal version is also available for individual corporate workplaces, with the same secure data transfer capabilities and either a limited or unlimited transfer volume. Prices start from just €9 per month.

Free trials of Adept TeamBeam Server and Personal are available at http://www.adeptscience.co.uk/teambeam

Origin, advanced graphical data analysis software, now available from Adept in UK

Origin_PRAdept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts.) is pleased to announce an agreement with OriginLab (Northampton, Massachusetts) to supply and support the market-leading graphing and data analysis software, Origin and OriginPro, to commercial customers in the UK and Irish Republic from 1st April 2014. This significantly enhances Adept’s product offering to its core client base of engineering and scientific professionals.

Origin is a renowned software application for data analysis and publication-quality graphing, tailored to the needs of scientists and engineers. Used by over 150,000 scientists and engineers worldwide, Origin software offers an easy-to-use interface for beginners, and the ability for advanced users to customise analysis and graphing tasks using themes, templates, custom reports, batch processing and programming.

“Our customers typically need to generate powerful, information-packed graphs to visualise large and complex technical datasets” says Lilly Northrop, joint Product Manager for Origin at Adept Scientific. “Spreadsheets may be sufficient for simple data management and analysis, and there are plenty of statistics-based and specialist data analysis packages. But we don’t know of any other software that can rival Origin’s breadth of advanced analysis routines (including statistical). Its flexible and easy-to-use interface makes it simple for engineers and scientists to create publication-quality graphs from even the largest datasets, giving them detailed analytical insight into every aspect of their data.”

Her colleague Dave Woodward adds, “Especially useful are Origin’s extensive graph customisation options, as well as its powerful recalculation and batch processing and plotting features. They’re just the sort of tools that professional engineers and scientists – and even business analysts – need from a data analysis application.

“A wide range of import formats, including numerous options for Excel, means users can easily access the data they need to plot and analyse. Origin also offers connectivity with many other popular applications, such as LabVIEW.”

Origin provides over 100 built-in graph types: contour, 2D and 3D as well as specialised graphs such as windrose, stock (OHLC), ternary and ternary-contour, 2D and 3D vector and statistical plots.

Powerful data analysis tools include peak analysis, curve fitting, statistics and signal processing. Multi-sheet workbooks and an integrated Project Explorer help users to organise their Origin projects and save workbooks as analysis templates for re-use.
Origin includes both C-based compiled and scripting programming languages so that users can easily automate their routines; and an integrated code generation and debugging tool.

OriginPro is, as its name suggests, an enhanced version of Origin that adds further tools for peak fitting, surface fitting, signal and image processing and statistics.
The latest version 9.1 of Origin and OriginPro uses OpenGL graphics to significantly enhance plotting and editing of 3D graphs created from large datasets. This means, for example, that users can rotate, pan and zoom within 3D graphs to examine details closely and efficiently.

Another key new feature is the ability to reduce data in worksheets by applying filters to one or more columns. This enables users to quickly reduce large datasets and have all associated graphs and analysis results automatically update when filter conditions are modified.

Other new features include Batch Plotting to create duplicate graphs from other worksheets and columns; Batch Analysis on multiple data plots using interactive gadgets; the ability to generate video from graphs; and the ability to place graphs as floating objects on worksheets for easy report creation.

New graph customisation options include multiple axis breaks, user-defined axes scales, automatic positioning of graph labels and tick label tables which are particularly useful for grouped data plots.

Both Origin and OriginPro 9.1 also feature a generous selection of new graph types and data analysis features. New tools for implicit function fitting and IIR filter design are among the latest enhancements to OriginPro 9.1.

Origin and OriginPro are available now from Adept Scientific in the UK and Ireland. Further details can be found at http://www.adeptscience.co.uk/products/origin.
