The problem of transferring files from one place to another is one that continues to plague both IT and the company. Issues around file transfer are not new to IT, but the sheer volume of business conducted over the network and the increasing number of corporate users who transfer information as a regular part of their work places new emphasis on monitoring and controlling the methods used to transfer files. The simple process of transferring a file from one user to another can have a profound impact on IT resources and the infrastructure. It may also have an impact on the company in the form of lost data or by compromising the company's intellectual property.
