Customers have trusted Diplomat MFT for over 20 years

Diplomat MFT from Coviant Software can play an important role in your organization’s data management, security, and compliance programs while improving staff efficiency and productivity. That’s because Diplomat MFT can automatically tackle the repetitive and complex steps required for all secure file transfers. Better design means fewer errors, fewer incidents, and less time spent troubleshooting failed transfers. And Diplomat MFT reduces 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 of a secure file transfer job using events, triggers, and loops. Diplomat MFT software uses Intelligent File Transfer design with embedded, secure file transfer logic. That means anyone can quickly and intuitively design and execute file transfer automations. That’s why organizations have trusted Diplomat MFT for over 20 years.

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 any enterprise. In fact, some of the largest organizations in healthcare, financial services, retail, and manufacturing rely on Diplomat MFT to transfer large files containing sensitive financial data, 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 awards for performance, security, and customer service. And we’ve earned the industry’s highest score for customer satisfaction by the independent Software Reviews. But the award we value most is the trust our many customers have placed in Coviant Software to handle their secure managed file transfer needs.

What are the benefits of dealing with a specialist MFT Software Company?

A purpose-built secure MFT platform, built, sold, and supported by a reputable vendor, is engineered to be an integral part of an organization’s data management and security program. Consumer-grade products and do-it-yourself solutions aren’t secure or scalable, and are prone to human error. Diplomat MFT includes automation, PGP encryption, integrates with on-premises and cloud infrastructure, supports all relevant protocols, and documents all actions taken to ensure compliance with audit requirements.

Scott J.

Diplomat MFT has been a powerful workhorse for all of our enterprise file exchange for many years. No other enterprise application we use comes with the same level of support we receive from Coviant.

Adah B.

Senior Programmer Analyst

Extremely robust platform for managing our enterprise file transactions. Every upgrade provides us with additional useful tools to streamline our business processes.

Stephen H.

IT BI Analyst SE

I find the sftp file transfers to be the most helpful tool of Diplomat MFT. No need for programming, the interface is customized already and users only need to fill in the boxes.

Eric D.

Director of Information Technology

The support is fantastic. I had to contact them on a few occasions – as it turns out, not for issues with Diplomat MFT but issues with one of the FTP partners. Coviant support stuck with me and went above and beyond to troubleshoot and figure out the issue.

Jeff M.

IT Software Application Director

The interface and GUI are very straightforward. The options are simple and labeled so anyone can understand how to set up and configure. The ability to test something without actually sending something is also beneficial.

Dave L.

Manager of Information & Technology

Diplomat MFT is a solid data transfer product, its easy to set up, and easy to use. I like the way the transaction builder is laid out. It’s so easy to understand what values it wants.
