    Overcoming Five Managed File Transfer Myths-

    Employees Only Use Company Email and IT-approved Systems to Transfer Sensitive Files

    Regardless of what technologies IT has put in place, employees will do what's easiest for them — and they're open about it, too. In fact, in a Globalscape survey, nearly two-thirds of employees said they use personal email accounts to share and store confidential work files, citing convenience and familiarity as the two most common reasons. IT needs to invest in secure technologies that map to what users are familiar with. To ensure that employees adopt the technology that IT is investing in, managed file transfer solutions should be as easy as the click of a button to use. Anything more might push end users to use unapproved tools – and jeopardize enterprise security.

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.
