DATA TRANSFER HEALTH CHECK

Solution Health Check

Like any computer system, your managed file transfer solution needs to be kept well tuned in order to provide the best performance. Pro2col can assist you with this by carrying a solution health check. This is a thorough review of your environment, either remotely for individual servers, or on-site for more complex landscapes by our experienced file transfer professionals.

 

We have put together a resource for you opposite called ‘10 signs your managed file transfer solution needs a Health Check‘. This will help raise questions for your organisation’s current environment and with the GDPR deadline looming there is no better time to do a check.

 

A TYPICAL HEALTH CHECK INCLUDES

  • Software version check (includes end of support and sunset date reviews)

  • Production versus non-production check (ensuring workflows & folders are in the right environments)

  • Server specification review (resource utilisation

  • Backups and Continuity assessment

  • Database – size and fragmentation

  • Application security, including application access to shared folders

  • Analysis of workflow executions (by time of day, files transferred, result etc.)

  • Best practices on logging, housekeeping, archiving, automated folder cleaning

  • Monitoring of workflows & workflow definitions

  • Review of scripts

  • Correct selection of SSL protocols

  • User base, permissions, policies and reports

NEXT STEPS FOR YOUR FILE TRANSFER PROJECT

If your health check suggests your data transfer processes and software are not fit for purpose then a Needs Analysis is a must to identify your organisation’s needs.

Alternatively, if your environment just needs tweaking and upgrades the next step would be to set up support and maintenance to maintain your solution.
