What are the Benefits of Managed File Transfer?
Security is the most important file transfer issue. When it comes to the challenges companies face when transferring files, security is the most important issue, with 59% of respondents listed security as a concern. In addition, more than half of IT security professionals said that if their file sharing practices were reviewed to ensure compliance, they would not have the tools needed to simplify the process.
Managed File Transfer (MFT) is the clear answer to the security and compliance challenges. A good MFT solution will provide multiple encryption methods and security protocols to deal with modern data security threats. The MFT software also includes a detailed audit log record function to ensure that you can prove that the file transfer is compliant under the audit.
Protecting customer data is essential. For most organizations, protecting sensitive data is an important issue. Most importantly, companies are concerned about the security of customer data — 72% of survey respondents believe that data is the sensitive data they care about protecting.
There are good reasons to pay attention to customer data. 69% of consumers are reluctant to do business with organizations suffering from data breaches. Customer data security is also critical to maintaining compliance with other industry standards.
Respondents are concerned that other types of data to be protected include employee data (66%), email (54%), company financial data (46%), and health information (33%), which are essential for your HIPAA compliance.
Managed file transfer solutions can provide end-to-end encryption to protect files at rest and in transit. 67% of survey respondents regard encryption as the most effective means of protecting data.
Too many organizations use inadequate file transfer methods. For smaller files, email is still the most common file transfer method, with 63% of respondents using email. This is a serious risk because insecure emails are both vulnerable to cyber attacks and difficult to track for review. Another 18% rely on writing custom scripts, which is time-consuming and error-prone.
