Why do you need a managed file transfer solution? Corporate data is often sensitive and highly important, yet organisations often do not take the necessary precautions to make sure it is transferred correctly.

Many organisations have multiple technologies and departments which help manage the movement of critical corporate data. For batch transfers there are data transmission departments and a whole raft of unmanaged transfers which include large email attachments via FTP servers – both headaches in themselves.

Compound this with increasing volume sizes and exponential growth in the size and volume of information being moved within and between organisations, and you’ve got the formula for a migraine. This is without even beginning to consider the security of sensitive corporate data and the need for organisations to satisfy regulatory and industry requirements within their file transfer operations.
