Published On : Nov 04, 2015

Managed file transfer (MFT) is a service or software that is utilized for managing secure data transfer from a computer to another computer via a network such as the internet. Managed file transfer software market is marketed to software enterprises as a substitute to the ad-hoc file transfer solutions including HTTP, FTP, and others.

A number of times, these transfers are accompanied with high-volume file transfers with extremely large files along with systems and users spread across a wide geographic area. Hence, the MFT services availed by enterprises are very fast for sharing even huge volumes of data across all key open platforms. The file transfer platform servers utilized for MFT comprise a wide range of authentication and security options and no file may enter or leave without the approval of the server for carrying out the transmission.  The file transfer platform servers can also automate the whole process of receiving and sending files.
