About Coviant Software

Founded in 2004, privately owned Coviant Software delivers secure managed file transfer (MFT) software that integrates smoothly and easily with business processes, so you can reliably automate and manage the transfer and reception of sensitive and business-critical files, while reducing business risk. 

Why Choose Diplomat MFT?

Better design means fewer errors and less time spent troubleshooting failed transfers. Diplomat MFT from Coviant Software will improve the efficiency and productivity of file transfer administrators, and play an important role in your organization’s data management, security, and compliance programs. That’s because Diplomat MFT can automatically tackle repetitive tasks, as well as vital steps required for all secure file transfers, thus reducing the risk of a security incident by keeping data encrypted, and minimizing the chance of human error. 

With other MFT solutions, file transfer experts must painstakingly program each step involved with a secure file transfer job using events, triggers, and loops.  Diplomat Managed File Transfer software uses Intelligent File Transfer design with embedded secure file transfer logic, so anyone can quickly and intuitively design and execute file transfer tasks. 

And even though Diplomat MFT is inexpensive and easy to use (compared to both competitive products and do-it-yourself solutions), it has the power and scalability required to tackle the needs of even large enterprises. In fact, some of the largest organizations in healthcare, financial services, retail, and manufacturing rely on Diplomat MFT to transfer large files containing sensitive personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), and high-value intellectual property. 

But don’t take our word for it. Year-after-year, Diplomat MFT is consistently recognized as one of the industry’s best managed file transfer solutions, winning awardsfor MFT, security, and customer service. And our 9.0 is the highest score for customer satisfaction by the independent Software Reviews. But the award we value most are the many customers who choose Coviant Software for their secure managed file transfer needs. Here are just a few of the organizations that trust Diplomat MFT to handle their secure file transfers. 

“Diplomat enabled us to take two time-consuming and inefficient processes – encrypting and setting up file transfers – and make them one single, automated process that supports Allegheny’s business requirements.”
