MFT Is Too Expensive

While enterprise-grade managed file transfer solutions might appear to cost more than consumer file sharing tools and homegrown FTP systems, they perform at a higher level to save your business money in other ways. MFT solutions allow businesses to automate processes, which ramps up employee productivity and requires less IT infrastructure overall. In another recent survey, 60 percent of enterprise respondents estimated that a single hour of downtime costs organizations between $250,000 and $500,000. By integrating MFT solutions into existing business processes, it also gives companies the ability to introduce new security and compliance policies and procedures without drastically changing the way their users conduct business, which improves the adoption rate of the new policies and procedures. As the exchange of information with partners, suppliers, customers and remote employees continues to grow and the loss of this capability has a direct impact on the performance of an organization, the real question to be asked is whether the cost of not having a reliable and supported MFT solution is too expensive.

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.

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.
