Enterprise managed file transfer (MFT) is the solution of choice to modernize legacy file transfer environments for many organizations. The right MFT solution can address the key pain points and weaknesses of outdated file transfer systems with greater visibility, security, collaboration, compliance, efficiency and reliability. At the same time, a solid MFT solution reduces IT’s burden in managing and troubleshooting complex legacy file transfer systems.
This white paper outlines five key characteristics that IT architects should look for in an enterprise file gateway solution as a part of a larger MFT strategy:
- DMZ edge security
- Integration across a diverse technology stack
- Enterprise scale and performance
- High availability, failover and disaster recovery
- Operational visibility, monitoring and reporting
