7 Advantages of Using MFT for Encrypted File Transfer
The Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution is a product that encompasses all aspects of inbound and outbound file transfer while using industry-standard network protocols and seamless encryption. It can automate and transfer data across your network, systems, applications, trading partners, and cloud environments from a single centralized management point. Organizations of all sizes can use MFT solutions to meet the needs of encrypted file transfers, ranging from dozens of files per week to thousands of files per day or more.
Using MFT solutions for encrypted file transfer will bring many advantages. Here are 7 main advantages:
1. Maintain strong cybersecurity practices
A robust solution will maintain the same level of cybersecurity practices. MFT provides complete security settings, including detailed audit trails and segmented groups for multiple security areas to meet strict internal policies. Maintaining these heavy network security measures is critical to successfully sending encrypted file transfers.
2. Follow the encryption protocol
MFT uses several leading data security protection technologies (including Open PGP, AES, SSL, and SSH) to encrypt and compress encrypted file transfers in transfer and static state.
3. Meet compliance requirements
The versatile MFT solution can easily protect your data and encrypt file transfers to comply with PCI DSS, FISMA, HIPAA/HITECH, GBLA, SOX, and GDPR, and other requirements.
4. Reduce costs
Although it is necessary to encrypt file transfers and protect data security, the cost can be high. The MFT solution quickly eliminates your need for custom scripts and programs, single-function tools, and manual processes-all of which are expensive to maintain and manage from a time perspective.
5. Simplify data transfer through workflow
The MFT solution uses a workflow that is easy to design and process and can simplify and automate the transfer of large numbers of encrypted files without using other tools or programs, all of which of course depends on the type of MFT solution used.
6. Deploy on multiple platforms
A successful MFT solution is easy to adjust, and you can implement your solution in a local, cloud, or hybrid environment. This advantage allows flexibility and scalability to match business growth without causing any lag.
7. With a series of excellent supplementary functions
There are many file sharing/transfer and integration solutions on the market today, but a powerful enterprise MFT solution will usually include access to the following supplementary functions:
Auditing and reporting: Audit logs can help you monitor the activity of file movement in your environment. Report indicators provide statistical details, graphs, and charts of this activity. You can also receive notifications immediately, and you can resume deleted transfers.
Automation: MFT solutions with batch automation capabilities will enable you to determine and monitor the execution time of encrypted file transfers. Look for an option that can perform multiple encrypted file transfers at the same time, trigger when another process is completed, and have a built-in scheduler, to avoid using other tools or software to start your workflow.
Secure e-mail function: An MFT solution that provides a secure way to send e-mails and helps ensure the security of messages and files by converting them into encrypted packages. These packages can then be downloaded via a protected HTTPS connection.
