Enterprise Edition Benefits

Manage complex file transfer environments

Set up and manage transfer jobs from one central application. Whether you are transferring files to or from traditional secure FTP or web servers or using cloud storage sites (like Amazon, Dropbox or ShareFile), Diplomat’s intuitive point-and-click interface makes it easy to schedule file transfer jobs.

Select source files by date, sequence number, and other wildcards. Then, process when all required source files are available. Enterprise edition includes choosing multiple distinct source file sets per transaction, including “trigger files” that control when the entire set of files is ready for transfer as a batch process.

Reduce time deploying new file transfer jobs. Save source, destination, and PGP key settings for use in multiple file transfer jobs. Create and validate new file transfer jobs, then merge only the new jobs onto your production system.

Create business workflows

Automatically execute external processes before a file transfer job starts or after it finishes. Using pre- and post-commands lets you create an automated workflow without using a separate scheduler.

Insert a single command using Diplomat MFT Scripting Agent into an existing workflow to execute a pre-configured Diplomat transaction. Set up a Diplomat transaction with the source files to pick up, PGP keys to use and where to email addresses for job status messages. Then, add a request that references the Diplomat transaction to any workflow. Or, use the Diplomat MFT REST API to initiate and monitor file transfer jobs as part of any workflow.

No unencrypted passwords or pass-phrases are stored on disk in your scripts or the Diplomat database. Sensitive data, such as passwords or pass-phrases, is only decrypted at run-time.

Monitor secure file transfer

Watch your file transfer environment with real-time visibility of all secure file transfer jobs. See when a job is scheduled, the last time it ran and whether it was successful. Drill down into job history, file history and log files. Plus, rerun failed jobs when needed. All from the same Diplomat MFT Job Monitor console.

Temporarily suspend scheduling of a file transfer job or group of jobs when problems arise. When a server is down or other technical problems occur, you can suspend the affected file transfer jobs. When the problem is resolved, jobs can be restarted with a single click.

Meet security mandates

Demonstrate compliance with PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX and other security mandates. Diplomat MFT Enterprise Edition captures detailed audit trail data in a SQL database to confirm you have met encryption, access control, authentication, monitoring and other security requirements.

Try Diplomat Remote Agent, a highly secure transport method based on PGP encryption which enables one-step data transfers between secure locations. Data no longer needs to reside outside the firewall on transport servers, such as FTP, web or email servers.

Use two-factor authentication to protect Diplomat Managed File Transfer from unauthorized use. Users can be authenticated automatically using their network identity or by entering a Diplomat username and password – or both.

Set user privileges, password policies and session expiration limits. Then, manage user connections through an administrative dashboard.

Reduce errors

Reduce file transfer failures by:

  • Reattempting when a transient problem occurs (e.g., FTP server login fails)
  • Checkpoint restart for transmission errors
  • File integrity checking of destination files

Suspend file transfers if an FTP account or other network component is not working. One click suspends transfers until the issue is resolved.

Identify unused OpenPGP keys, partner profiles and transactions for faster system clean-up.

Receive email or paging messages with diagnostic data to quickly identify and resolve file transfer problems. Diplomat MFT Enterprise Edition’s email notifications provide information on every step of a file transfer job.
