Managed File Transfer Technology FAQ’s

What is Managed File Transfer Software (MFT)?

Managed file transfer is a technology that provides the secure transfer of data in an efficient and a reliable manner.

What is File Transfer Protocol?

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a technology used for moving files, but that does not include the option for encrypting data in transit. It was originally designed for use in private scientific and research networks and is based on a specification defined in 1985 by the Internet Engineering Task Force in RFC 959. FTP uses two connections to send data. Authentication data (e.g., usernames and passwords) is exchanged on a command channel, then data files are sent on a separate channel that is established after the authentication is complete.

There are many different managed file transfer vendors out there to choose from, offering similar software tools and packages. However, it’s important that you choose the right MFT Vendor and software solution for your business, which is fit-for-purposed and future-proofed. We advise that you capture the current set-up along with any file transfer challenges you may be encountering and then book in a consultation call or free demo session which most vendors do offer. It’s important as a business you are clear on your requirement. This way a potential vendor will be in a good position to let you know whether or not their software is a good fit for your business requirements
