Features Managed File Transfer can provide


Issues MFT Can address:

  • Failed security audits - With the growth in data security breaches, and the increased amount of sensitive customer data traveling in files, security is a critical concern for all organizations.
  • Slow transfers - Digitization, globalization and outsourcing have all contributed to larger file sizes. As file sizes have ballooned, so has the time to transmit them between systems.
  • Lengthy onboarding - Across all industries, organizations are experiencing rapid growth in their trading partner networks. Companies are expanding their businesses, both organically and through mergers and acquisitions, which compounds already slow onboarding timeframes.
  • "Where is my file?" - Where is the file? With industry error rates running at an average of six percent, you probably get this question more than you want.
  • Regulatory compliance - Do you find yourself dealing with compensating controls, certifications, regulatory reporting, and security audits?
  • File sharing problem - As users have brought their personal devices into the enterprise, many times they bring their cloud sharing applications with them.

Capabilities MFT Provides:

  • Assured data delivery - When the file transfer fails, the business process that depends on the data in that file fails.
  • Centralized goveranance - Effective controls are required to manage all data movement and exchange.
  • High-Speed transport - New transport options overcome the size and distance barriers of traditional TCP based transfer.
  • Advanced security - Encryption is not enough.
  • Regulatory Audit - Continuous controls monitoring and audit reporting help you demonstrate compliance.
  • File Sharing - Securely sync and share files between devices and individuals without having to clog your email systems.
