The three-part managed file transfer webinar series from Oxford Consulting Group features presenters from a leading analyst firm and a global technology solutions company, who will share their research and insights on minimizing file transfer risks, addressing file transfer security and compliance concerns, and improving file transfer operations.

Westerville, OH (PRWEB) May 21, 2012 – Oxford Consulting Group, a leading information technology (IT) solutions provider, announced today it will be hosting a webinar series throughout the month of June focused on helping organizations secure, automate and optimize file transfers. Featuring multiple speakers from the technology community, including IDC Analyst Maureen Fleming, this series will include discussion on reducing file transfer costs, minimizing FTP risk and transforming file transfer operations.

As a result of expanding supply chains and globalization, B2B file transfer growth is on the rise. And due to the critical nature of these files, so is the need for increased security, reliability and visibility. However, many organizations are challenged with file transfer methods—including FTP and homegrown methods—that are difficult to manage, unreliable and inefficient. In addition, these approaches can create security and compliance problems, as well as dissatisfaction among customers and business partners.

In this three-part managed file transfer (MFT) webinar series entitled “Secure, Automate and Optimize Your Critical File Transfers,” representatives from the leading analyst firm IDC, a global technology solutions company, and Oxford Consulting Group will discuss these key file transfer challenges and how to address them. The series consists of the following events:

  • Overcoming FTP Risks and Challenges with Managed File Transfer (Tuesday, June 12, 2012) Featuring IDC analyst Maureen Fleming, this webinar will include a discussion on the strategies, business case and technology solutions for enhancing file transfer methods and mitigating FTP risk.
