Protecting sensitive data is of paramount importance in today’s environment, both in transit and at rest. Managed file transfer is the safest file transfer options. As a centralized method for encrypting, automating, and sending data securely from one place to the next, it is head and shoulders above other approaches to file transfer. You may want to use managed file transfer if your organization needs to:
- Audit or monitor your organization's file transfer activity.
- Comply with data security laws and regulations.
- Move to a more secure way to send data.
- Use adaptable processes that can overcome downtime, reduce human error, and auto-resume.
- Exchange data with internal and external stakeholders, whether in the cloud or on-premises.
Some MFT solutions offer added features that allow you to integrate data flow between the cloud and web apps you use daily, and can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud environment, or as a SaaS solution to give your organisation the flexibility you need to transfer files securely.
The best MFT software solutions, according to our independent, expert consultants share a few main benefits including a strong roadmap, connectivity and vendor support. Remember though that the right managed file transfer solution will depend entirely on your business (infrastructure and needs) and budget.
