What Is Managed File Transfer?
The core Managed File Transfer capabilities of connectivity, automation, reporting, and administration are built on a foundation of secure file transfer.
As the latest evolution of file transfer technology, Managed File Transfer (MFT) enables the reliable transfer of files between business parties using secure protocols and easy-to-understand models of exchange. In layman’s terms, it means you will always know where your files are with predictable, secure delivery and extensive reporting.

The result is that IT departments can deliver a more sophisticated, controlled file-transfer solution without slipping into the custom-code abyss. In short, an MFT system brings order, predictability, and security to file movement – improving business performance and reducing risk.
