There is a need to share files in order to carry out various types of business transactions in various industries. Conventionally, file sharing can be done by using email or File Transfer Protocol (FTP). However, the drawback with such types of methods is that such methods cannot be easily monitored and governed. There are often question marks on the issues of security concerning the confidential files, who have received such kind of files and when. In order to manage such kind of issues in the arena of file sharing, there is a much more secured way, named as Managed File Transfer (MFT).

The concept of Managed File Transfer is efficiency and total security

By using Managed File Transfer (MFT), files can be shared in a secure manner. MFT software is designed to aid organizations with the growing types of compliances, security and system requirements in order to distribute data. Managed File Transfer (MFT) works by employing a network in order to transfer files from one system to another. During the process of transfer of files in MFT, data is under file encryption and various other security features in order to maintain the privacy and integrity of the file. This dissuades the hackers on the internet from attempting to gain control and access to the contents of files. Since conventional data sharing methods such as File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and email cannot be easily controlled or governed, MFT becomes an invaluable tool to ensure the security of the files being transferred and increasing of the accountability in the users who transfer and receive such files.

The basic principle on which the Managed File Transfer system works and protects data is by giving users control over the access. There may be different ways in which access control is managed and differs over secure file transfer products. However, the most common way is that there is a shared code between the source of the file transfer and the receiver of that particular file. This shared code can be in the form of a simple password or more complex in the form of an identity and access management (IAM) system. This secret code is used to scramble the file before it is being transferred from the source. Once the receiver of the file gets the file transferred, the file is then subsequently decrypted by the computer of the receiver by using the same secret code.

The wide-ranging capabilities of managed file transfer

MFT has the ability to ensure dependable file transfer solutions in order to preserve the confidential nature of their vital information while it is being transported through various digital platforms. This sets apart the MFT system from other conventional file transfer systems such as FTP. The various benefits of suing MFT include assisting organizations to set standards on compliance, control and protection that is involved in transfer of files. MFT also provides the facility of providing auditing capabilities that other file transfer systems don’t provide. MFT also possesses high tech capabilities that give automated storage and removal abilities from the depository to ensure compliance with the guidelines for data preservation. MFT also increases the capabilities and productivity of the organizations.
