MFT Just Moves Data from One Party to Another

Sharing files between coworkers, offices, business systems or even international business partners is often taken for granted and oversimplified. File sharing is more than just moving data around — it's making sure that sensitive information stays secure without hindering employee productivity, and that organizations remain compliant when moving confidential files. An effective MFT program actually integrates with your existing solutions, facilitating activities such as order entry, critical file archival, notification of critical process activity and many other process-oriented activities. These process solutions can be used to automate manual activities, enabling employees to focus on other aspects of the business. MFT solutions also help keep employee behavior in check and offer administrators visibility into how and where data is being moved – a key benefit for compliance and overall IT governance.

According to a recent study, the average employee sends and receives 15 email attachments every day — which translates into more than 5,000 attachments per person every year. With that much data being shared, file transfer is a critical process for every business to master. As a result, managed file transfer (MFT) solutions have emerged as a strategic, secure and effective way to handle and manage internal and external file sharing — and analyst group IDC expects the market for MFT products to reach $1.4 billion by 2017. Yet, despite the rapid growth and adoption of the technology, several misconceptions about MFT and its benefits still exist today. In this slideshow, Globalscape has identified the five primary misconceptions regarding MFT.

Globalscape designs and delivers both SMB and enterprise file transfer software and services trusted by the U.S. Army, Fortune 100 companies, and businesses around the world.
