How To Replace RepliWeb with alternative MFT Software
Step 1: Evaluate Your Current Workflows
Before migrating to any other software, you need to inventory your current workflows and ensure your team fully understands both the technical configuration of the product, and the business drivers behind each workflow. Also, identify the stakeholders of each workflow so that you can work with them to ensure a proper transition of functionality to a new system. Spending time up front ensures a smooth and risk-free migration to a new system.
Step 2: Review MFT Vendors
Armed with the knowledge of what you need to get done, examine available solutions for automating your file transfer workflows. Of course, we recommend Diplomat MFT. In addition to being an excellent choice for automating secure file transfers at enterprise scale, Diplomat MFT’s support for data replication and file synchronization means we have the best feature set for replacing Repliweb overall.
Step 3: Get A Quote
Pricing isn’t everything, but it’s a big thing. And many managed file transfer vendors are cagey about what their products actually cost. They’ll show one price on their website, but by the time add up all options and modules to cover the file transfer workflow needs of your organization, the number is much larger. Get a firm price up front, including the cost for support, customizations, and annual renewal. Finally, be sure to ask the vendor what the cost of migration from Repliweb will be (consulting, training, infrastructure changes, etc.), and if they offer a “trade-in” discount to ease the financial burden of the transition. In case you are interested, Diplomat MFT offers ethical and transparent pricing on our website. Our solution is at least 50% less expensive than other MFT solutions.
Step 4: Make Sure it’s Secure
Recent events have revealed that some managed file transfer vendors have security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by threat actors with devastating effect. You should expect that the managed file transfer platform you choose carries out the task of transferring files securely, using OpenPGP encryption, and secure transport protocols like SFTP. But also check to make sure it does not expose your administration dashboard outside the firewall and open to the public internet, and that it does not have known exploitable vulnerabilities. You can check by vendor name on the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Cybersecurity Alerts and Advisories page.
Step 5: Implement and Validate
After choosing a new managed file transfer product, be sure to first deploy it alongside Repliweb rather than try a “big bang” migration all at once. Choose a few key file transfer workflows and migrate them to the new solution, ensuring they work according to your business needs. This initial migration phase is a good time to check failure conditions (network connection errors, disk errors, bad passwords, and so on) so that you can confirm that your new solution meets your needs and to ensure no disruptions in critical transfers or scheduling. Once you have confirmed that your selected vendor can handle the migrated workflows, you can move everything off of Repliweb and onto the new solution (Diplomat MFT, perhaps?). Continue to keep a diligent eye on things for a while, until you are satisfied that the migration was a success.
