From email to Dropbox and FTP, the file transfer process in most organizations is fraught with risk and simply does not meet most organizations’ corporate governance requirements. The result is that the status quo of file transfer in most organizations can be considered UFT—or Unmanaged File Transfer.
What is needed to overcome the problem, therefore, is Managed File Transfer (MFT)—a solution that will enable complete control over content, its lifecycle, access rights to that information, the maintenance of an audit trail, and disposition of data according to corporate governance requirements.
This white paper, sponsored by Attachmate and based on a survey conducted by Osterman Research, describes current file transfer practices and the extent of risk that organizations face by not managing file transfer properly. It also explains the benefits of MFT, provides guidelines for evaluating file transfer vendors, and describes FileXpress®, Attachmate’s MFT solution.
