What is Managed File Transfer (MFT)?
Managed file transfer, or MFT, is a technology platform enabling organizations to reliably exchange electronic data between systems and people in a secure way to meet compliance needs. These data movements can be both internal and external to an enterprise and include sensitive, compliance-protected, or high-volume data.
The growth of data volume combined with global supply chain proliferation means more and more information is moved every day. These file transfers can push IT systems and staffers to the limit, creating a range of hassles and headaches. Pitfalls of expanding MFT needs include:
- Hacking and security risks
- Regulatory compliance issues
- FTP failures and associated costs
- Maintaining SLAs
- Inability to scale to meet growing file transfer requirements
- Excessive trading partner onboarding time
