What is Managed File Transfer?

Companies of all sizes transfer files internally between servers and externally between trading partners via email and File Transfer Protocol (FTP).   Many organizations do not have the resources , controls or systems to easily manage and govern these file transfers.   This can detract from a company’s day-to-day business and its strategic initiatives and make life difficult for partners.

Managed file transfer (MFT) refers to software that facilitates the secure transfer of data from one computer source to another through a network.  MFT outperforms FTP because MFT has security features to encrypt and ensure data integrity.  It can also confirm the identity of the target or sending system.  The IT department often addresses security by using Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) or FTP over Secure Sockets Layer (FTPS), but these methods are costly and require constant monitoring that causes IT staff to react after the fact.  Further, FTP solutions are only point-to-point – they lack the ability to automatically route files based upon content or internal policy.
