Our Employees Know and Follow Our Existing Policies

Chances are your business has a policy in place regarding the sharing of files — but do your employees know it exists? According to Globalscape's survey, only 47 percent of employees think their companies have policies for sending sensitive files, almost a third said no policies were in place and 22 percent weren't sure. It's never safe to assume employees know what to do. It's up to the IT team to properly train employees on security policies, while educating them on the consequences of failing to follow these policies.

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. Its secure FTP product solutions give enterprises and organizations of all sizes better control and visibility of data, simplifying the flow of information across multiple technology platforms and locations worldwide.
