Overcoming File Transfer Challenges
As a result of expanding supply chains and globalization, companies are transferring more and more information each day. For many companies, file transfers are creating a number of headaches as their IT systems and staff are being pushed to the limit. To start, they’re faced with the following:
Hacking and failed security audits
|While IT departments may protect some data transfers carefully, employees across the company often send, receive and store a great deal of data in an unprotected, uncontrolled and unsecured fashion (email attachments, FTP servers, and more). This could lead to fraud or other hacking issues by cybercriminals, as well as failed security audits.|
Regulatory compliance issues
|These uncontrolled and unsecured transfers are making it more difficult for companies to adhere to government regulations.|
FTP scripting costs
|Information technology resources are wasting precious time hand-coding scripts and manually tracking returned errors. This equates to a significant cost for companies.|
|IT departments may be unable to maintain service level agreements around these file transfers.|
Inability to scale for file transfer requirements
|A company’s legacy infrastructure may be unable to scale to meet your growing file transfer requirements.|
Trading partner onboarding time
|The time and effort required to set up file transfers with trading partners can be lengthy.|
It’s more critical than ever to ensure the safety, security and control of your data, and your company needs a powerful solution to manage and control the critical information that flows across the supply chain.
