Vendor Landscape: Managed File Transfer

Centralize, automate, and secure file transfer in the enterprise.

  • Many organizations are looking at managed file transfer (MFT) vendors to meet regulatory compliance, increase security, and automate file transfers.
  • Vendors tout advanced capabilities, but depending on use case, a simpler or more complex solution will be warranted.
  • This Vendor Landscape isolates key differentiators amongst vendors and provides resources to help accelerate your selection process.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Compliance and security fuel market growth. File transfer protocol (FTP) is no longer seen as a viable option to manage file transfer securely in and outside the enterprise. MFT has filled that role and is seeing rapid adoption as compliance standards extend their reach.
  • When it comes to the cloud, vendors recognize the demand for deployment flexibility; however, buyers are still wary of potential security issues revolving around compliance.
  • Mobile capabilities are becoming increasingly important with vendors starting to either offer mobile functionality or include it in their roadmap.

Impact and Result

  • Understand what’s new in the managed file transfer market.
  • Evaluate MFT vendors and products for your enterprise needs.
  • Determine which products are most appropriate for your particular use case and scenario.
