It’s a given that Managed File Transfer (MFT) transfers files. But what exactly makes it stand out from other file transfer solutions? For one, MFT supports the highest levels of governance, compliance and security. That’s why a growing number of companies are turning to MFT. Businesses simply can’t afford to lose data these days, and MFT ensures data gets into the right hands—and stays out of the wrong ones.
“MFT solutions deliver reliable capabilities to address file transfer across internal A2A, B2B and cloud environments, while providing centralized governance for file transfers across these environments,” according to a Gartner analysis1 of MFT.
A complete MFT suite features services that support management policies, governance processes, coordination and reliable file transfer. Along with workflow automation, provisioning and technological adaptability, MFT enables:
- File security through integration with other solutions to manage risk, access and authentication
- Governance monitoring through data, message, file and transaction tracking capabilities
- File transfer visibility into transactions, the people involved, and crucial processes and systems
- Reporting and auditing features that collect file transfer data to provide a complete audit trail
