The Importance of Managed File Transfer
One of the core functions of any B2B system is the file transfer capabilities. At one time many businesses considered file transfers more of an administrative task and allowed a lax approach to the systems that could transfer files with varying rules and processes.
Today, most businesses understand how important a managed file transfer (MFT) system is for their B2B operations. The data movement is too important and too sensitive to be left open for loosely managed processes, potential theft or corruption.
