What's Your File Transfer Strategy? Governed File Exchange Keeps your Company in the Lead
In today's e-business environment, there is a growing demand for secure and managed file transfers with third parties that are outside of your enterprise. As organizations understand the need to share proprietary, confidential information with outside parties, you must consider several key challenges:
- Centralized management and complete visibility of all file transfer activity—regardless of the protocol being used and/or the type of transfer.
- Secure file exchange to outside parties while minimizing IT overhead for each new connection.
- Address threats to file transfers, connectivity security, and preventing sensitive information leakage.
Whether it's a pharmaceutical company’s Chief Risk Officer sharing clinical trial information with hundreds of doctors, or a worldwide commercial bank transferring ACH and ACT financial transaction files between different financial organizations on an hourly basis, enterprises have identified several goals for their Governed File Transfer (GFT) or external file sharing capabilities:
- Replace FTP and homegrown file-transfer processes which are unsecured and suffer from high total cost of ownership.
- Allow the automation of file-transfer operations that are currently operated manually using disks, couriers, USB flash drives, which are expensive and vulnerable to security breaches.
- Provide secure "ad-hoc" solutions that enable users to send large files to outside parties, without relying on email servers to handle large attachments.
- Enable online secure file sharing with outside parties, with 24x7 global access to sensitive documents, such as HR, Legal, Marketing, Finance, and Board of Directors.
