Why do I need to pay for an MFT solution?

Managed file transfer is the essential solution for secure handling and movement of sensitive and regulated data, including personally identifiable information (PII), personal health data (PHI), financial data, intellectual property, employee records, and more. Freeware data sharing services, email, or in-house scripted solutions introduce complexity, risk, and liability for  productivity and security as well as sacrificing compliance with regulations and standards like HIPAA, GLBA, GDPR, PCI-DSS.

What are the main considerations of MFT Pricing?

Managed file transfer is a mature concept, but it fulfills an essential role in data management and security programs. An MFT solution should be secure, reliable, and easy to use, with features like integrated OpenPGP encryption and SFTP security for files in motion and at rest, simple no-code implementation, workflow automation, support for communications protocols and cloud-based storage services, alerting, and process documentation for security and compliance audits. Unnecessary features and customizations are often used to hide the true cost of MFT and justify inflated costs. Consider your immediate needs as well as longer-term opportunities for expansion to get the best return on your MFT investment.

Why does pricing vary so much with MFT software solutions?

Because managed file transfer is a vital function for data management and security, MFT vendors have been attractive targets for acquisitions by tech-oriented private equity firms. In order to accelerate a return on investment , MFT products are typically bundled with other solutions, or festooned with unnecessary features to justify high prices. Coviant Software is a lean organization with a singular focus on MFT that allows us to offer an award-winning MFT product at a fair and ethical price that makes us the value leader in the market.

How much does a Cloud MFT solution cost?

Coviant Software offers its award-winning Diplomat MFT products in three editions at three corresponding prices: Basic ($999), Standard ($1999) and Enterprise ($6999). Other MFT products can cost as much as $50,000 with no appreciable and corresponding increase in performance along with continual charges and fees  adding up for consumption of resources and bandwidth.

What is the difference between enterprise and standard solutions?

Often the needs of smaller organizations are limited in scope and requirements. The number of processes and people managing them may be smaller. Our Diplomat MFT Standard Edition is right-sized (and right-priced) for these users while still offering the fundamental functionality to cover a fairly wide range of use cases, along with notifications, basic reporting, and expandability. Larger enterprises typically demand more extensive functionality and increased management and visibility options to support more processes, more users, and a broader scope of connectors and integrations. Diplomat MFT Enterprise Edition meets these needs at a fair and predictable cost. Because so often these processes and integrations are mission-critical and occur at all times every day throughout the year, many also demand  24×7 critical incident response coverage.

When doing a vendor comparison, in addition to cost, what other factors should I consider?

Consider first and foremost the fundamentals of your processes. Many MFT offerings are primary FTP servers with overly complex automation capabilities bolted on over time. In reality, most organizations will actually benefit much more from a greater focus on automation with server-side capabilities coming into play as a secondary factor. Diplomat MFT has been built from the ground up to optimize automated file handling processes across all conceivable common patterns in a far more straightforward way that’s much easier to manage and scale with a much shallower learning curve and with no spaghetti connector canvases. Can that other system reliably handle thousands of processes without management devolving into a nightmare? Can a new administrator team member quickly and easily understand what they’re seeing and execute their own processes?

What is the catch? Why is your Enterprise Edition $10k or less when others are $50k?

Coviant Software is a lean organization with a singular focus on managed file transfer that allows us to offer an award-winning MFT product at a fair and ethical price. We do not have to support high-priced executives and an extensive network of middle managers, and we are not beholden to spreadsheet-driven demands of private equity ownership or public shareholders. Diplomat MFT is designed to meet the needs of all users without compromising the features and capabilities needed to support enterprises of every size with unmatched service and support.
