As an integral interface to your customers and partners, and a strategic foundation for supporting your revenue streams, MFT and B2B connections are vital to the success of your business. But in many cases, gaining control over file-transfer chaos is like herding cats – it’s nearly impossible.
A wide variety of MFT patterns and use cases handled through a combination of point-to-point processes, vanilla FTP sites, cobbled-together quick fixes, and expensive legacy mechanisms such as leased lines, frame relay connections, and modem pools has created virtual anarchy for many enterprises, especially as the volume of data and the number of partners and processes grows, and standards continue to evolve. In addition, emerging interaction patterns such as human-to-human and human-to-system are compounding complexity with requirements for new systems, management, and governance.
Disjointed connections not only place strain on your infrastructure, your budget, and your staff, but they also open up security holes that put data at risk and undermine compliance with government and industry regulations. And because they are hard to manage, they can’t adequately support your business process requirements or give you the visibility you need to track communications and transactions and quickly address issues when they arise.
The time to move from the reactive projects that have fueled the chaos to a strategic approach is now.

They enable you to create manageable, secure, and auditable two-way communications channels over the Internet and private IP networks — with anyone you do business with.
