Managed File Transfer analytics

Get complete visibility into all your Managed File Transfers

Managed File Transfer Analytics is a term used to describe a web-based analytics platform, which monitors all transfers executed on the MFT server.

Introduction to Managed File Transfer analytics

Lack of visibility of file transfers puts organisations at risk of breaching SLAs and compliance requirements. But providing endless reports for different departments is time-consuming for IT.  Managed File Transfer analytics provides a simple solution to these challenges.

It is a web-based MFT analytics platform, which monitors all transfers executed on the MFT server. It provides in-depth monitoring for technical teams and is simple for your business users too.

The configurable dashboard provides real-time visibility all in one place. You can search for any file transfers, check their status and be alerted if expected files have not been delivered on time. The most sophisticated analytics platforms can monitor multiple MFT environments at the same time too. Standard or enterprise versions are available.

Key features of an MFT analytics platform

Dashboard

The MFT analytics dashboard shows key performance indicators in charts, including: Passed or missed expected SLAs; transfers per business unit; percentages of success versus failed transactions; most active partners; transaction trends and more.

Self-service capabilities

A good MFT analytics platform allows business users to track relevant transfers themselves. IT no longer need to do checks for finance, HR and other departments. This reduces the time and cost spent administering the file transfer solution and there is no need to grant server access to end users.

Alerts and notifications

Set up alerts if expected files have not been delivered on time. You can track your business critical Service Level Agreements (SLA) and get notification when they pass or fail. This provides a simplified and more reliable SLA management process. Enterprise-level MFT analytics platforms will provide more SLA functionality than the standard edition.

Security

MFT analytics solutions includes access control and authentication via Activity Directory or the inbuilt authenticator. Fine-grain access control allows you to limit what users can see. It is entirely flexible so you can configure this as you need.

Monitor multiple MFT environments from one place

MFT analytics can monitor multiple file transfer servers simultaneously. Whether that’s multiple instances of the same MFT solution or a combination of different MFT products (HelpSystems GoAnywhere, Globalscape EFT, Ipswitch MOVEit and IBM Sterling). This removes the need for different analytics components or modules, providing complete visibility in one place. This feature comes with the enterprise edition of an MFT analytics platform.

Self-service portal

You can opt for the additional Self Service Portal (SSP) too; a web-based tool allowing external partners to track file transfers executed on the MFT Server. This helps meet SLAs and further reduces support demands and associated costs.
