Our 2022 Manged File Transfer (MFT) Predictions

To start off the year our MFT experts have come together to predict what’s in store for Managed File Transfer in 2022.

With over twenty-one years in the MFT industry, Managing Director James Lewis is well placed to give his thoughts on what to expect in the MFT marketplace.

This includes a summary of recent vendor acquisitions and insight into the continual transition to MFTPaaS. The move to cloud has gathered pace, so it will come as no surprise to see a MFT vendor step into the iPaaS space. Also on the agenda is enhanced security offered to MFT by ICAP. This is especially important comsidering ICAP ensures that data coming into an organisation is virus checked and that leaving doesn’t contain commercially sensistive data.

It will be interesting to catch up with the MFT marketplace towards the end of the year.

Important IT trends for 2022

Technical Director, Chris Payne rounds off our 2022 insights with three important IT trends to keep on your radar.

It may not come as a surprise to see hybrid-working make the list. COVID-19 restrictions are due to ease, but this doesn’t mean a full return to the office. Having seen how home-working can have its benefits, many businesses will progress to a permanent hybrid-working model.

This will come with technical challenges. IT teams will be looking at how best to adopt application gateways.

Chris also discusses the recent log4j issue and how this will impact not just in-house security and vulnerabilities, but those inherited by supplier solutions.

There you have it, our 2022 managed file transfer predictions, make sure to read the full insights. We’ll be catching up with these forecasts towards the end of the year.
