Managed file transfer (MFT) is a technology platform that allows organizations to reliably exchange electronic data between systems and people in a secure way to meet compliance needs.MFT is more reliable for data and file transfer.

  • Data security: MFT provides a security strategy with real-time monitoring and validation of security policies and controls to protect data in transit or at rest.
  • Data growth: The number of users sharing files has grown, as has the number of endpoints and devices. And as files get larger, the time to move them over global distances becomes longer.
  • Technology megatrends: The growth of big data, cloud applications, artificial intelligence, data analytics, and the Internet of Things. MFT offers advanced capabilities and support for multiple platforms, mobile devices, applications, and other existing IT infrastructure.
  • Visibility: Operational visibility over file movements leads to proactive issue resolution, like failed transfers and improved compliance with SLA commitments.
