Datical’s flagship product, Datical DB, automates the deployment of database schema updates for large enterprises that struggle with the constant state of application change across complex environments. Based upon the Liquibase open source project, Datical DB manages the database schema lifecycle for people who develop, deploy and maintain applications. Datical is privately held with headquarters in Austin, Texas.

Challenge

A provider of database management software to Fortune 25 companies, with an emphasis in financial services, Datical must ensure that its software delivery system complies with the security demands of these enterprises. Because its customers do not allow employees to use basic cloud storage solutions to receive files, Datical had no option but to find a secure software delivery platform that satisfies stringent security requirements.

Datical

Datical attempted to send their software solutions and updates via Dropbox, Inc., or Google Drive, but to no avail. Their customers required a secure file sharing portal specifically for their use, so that no security breaches would occur. Datical even offered to “FedEx its software” by sending USB drives and DVDs only to find these methods were also forbidden by their Fortune 25 customers.

Solution

Thru was the only solution Datical found that could do exactly what its customers required. Datical quickly implemented the Thru solution that allowed enterprise employees to securely download software deliveries faster than ever. Using the Thru Cloud, Datical set up a secure delivery portal where software could be sent with the following capabilities to:

  • Access global data centers where software files could be mirrored for rapid downloads worldwide.
  • Enable Revenue recognition with Thru’s ability to perform an audit of all transactions.
  • Securely receive damaged databases from customers and easily distribute software patches and builds.

  • Software deliveries are faster and efficient.
  • IT enjoys full control and visibility of all software transactions.
  • All data in transit and at rest is completely out of reach from unauthorized users.
