Learn about our comprehensive services for MFT in the Cloud.

Cloud MFT is radically transforming the exchange of information.

To thrive in today’s hyper-paced business environment:

Your company needs to exchange critical information swiftly and flawlessly with internal and external recipients. You need to be able to do it from any storage location, at any time, regardless of file size, transfer distance, or network conditions. Additionally, you need to do it for the lowest cost possible – without sacrificing security.

These business imperatives are driving more and more organizations to leverage cloud-based managed file transfer (MFT). They’re adopting this next-generation technology to move their digital assets at unprecedented speed and agility, protected by security they can trust.

When you’re constantly sending volumes of critically important information

to locations throughout the world:

There are countless opportunities for error.

One small glitch and a bank’s financial data might not be processed. A television program might not be distributed by air time. Life-saving medical information might not be received when it’s needed. 

A lot is riding on fast, flawless file transfers. And your reputation is at stake if anything goes wrong.

These are some of the more crucial challenges of ensuring that information is delivered on time, in full, without corruption.

Security and risk are critically important.

Security threats are greater than ever, and hackers are getting more sophisticated all the time. One breach can cost your organization millions of dollars and the loss of your reputation.

Existing systems aren’t agile.

Your current infrastructure may be outdated and can’t adapt quickly to demand. Unable to respond quickly, you lag behind your more agile competitors.

The organization lacks expertise in protocols and formats.

Many organizations have insufficient internal IT resources to keep up with modern file transfer technologies and demand.

You can’t manage what you can’t see.

Your current systems may not deliver centralized monitoring and visibility that is essential to managing file transfer performance.

IT is under pressure to reduce costs.

The cost of maintaining legacy file transfer applications continues to rise.
