Support for the growing demands of partners and customers. As your business-to-business interactions increase, so will your file transfer requirements. Functionalities including multiplatform support, secure communications, user-interface options and scalability are essential to an organization’s file transfer strategy.

File transfer, one of the most commonly adopted software technologies around the world, traditionally has been used for the exchange of file-based information between different IT systems and over the Internet. However, basic file transfer technology is limiting and its capabilities are fundamentally inadequate. Many of today’s existing file transfer solutions lack the management, control and integration capabilities needed to support today’s challenging business environment.

While many companies recognize the importance file transfer technology plays in their enterprise, the adoption of advanced solutions is sometimes delayed. Some companies utilize technologies such as file transfer protocol (FTP), older file transfer applications or message-based transfer to satiate their file transfer needs. However, these technologies often fall short when it comes to transferring large files.

Managed file transfer (MFT) software is quickly emerging as one of the most effective file transfer strategies for enterprises today.
