This just-released e-Guide provides IT professionals who are “in the trenches” with a concise assessment of why legacy file transfer systems are no longer adequate in the face of today’s skyrocketing user demands. Specifically, the e-Guide exposes the limitations of “business as usual” file transfer solutions such as FTP and e-mail, and looks at an innovative solution that can make the IT professional’s job much easier. The e-Guide offers solutions to issues such as:
No visibility (“where’s the file?”)—the inability to locate files or create an audit trail are both serious drawbacks to achieving compliance, and can require hours or days of painstaking searching
Lack of automation—performing manual processes and writing custom-scripts are both huge time sucks, and limit the productivity of each individual IT team member
No integration or centralization—when companies keep adding one home-grown file transfer system next to another, it creates a confusing maze of non-integrated systems that are difficult to maintain or administer
User workarounds—end users will use the easiest, most convenient file transfer solution available to them, even if it’s unauthorized, and this creates huge security, compliance and visibility issues for IT.
The e-Guide also provides an overview of Managed File Transfer (MFT). It briefly explains what MFT is, and examines MFT benefits and capabilities that are not available in typical legacy systems. It also provides statistical evidence that MFT can significantly reduce file movement errors, exceptions and problems—and speed up error resolution times by nearly fivefold.
