Security, Compliance, and Managed File Transfer

Nearly 25% of organizations using MFT said saw notable benefits to compliance management processes.MFT also helps maintain efficient collaboration processes in a fast-changing, mobile, and social business world.
File transfer is an often-overlooked component of communications infrastructure, involving the movement of mass amounts of data or files, both among employees and outside parties. An Executive Strategy Planner from eWEEK, “Managed File Transfer: The Unsung Security and Compliance Solution,” based on a survey by Ziff Davis Enterprise, shows 42 percent of companies surveyed see security as a top concern when it comes to file transfer. But security products alone may not address all problems; the transfer application itself must be addressed. Meanwhile, bringing established transfer methods into compliance with government regulations and industry and open standards can degrade performance. Managed File Transfer (MFT) makes partnerships and vendor relationships easier to set up—and close down—and processes and standards-adherence more efficient. The real benefits to an organization lie in the seamless integration of security and compliance into existing collaboration and communication systems.
