Managed File Transfer: What is MFT and how does it work?


Managed File Transfer is a secure, reliable technology for sharing critical business data. MFT software is designed to meet the compliance and performance requirements necessary to send and receive high-value, high-volume files such as money transfers, sensitive data containing personal information, or proprietary business files. Because you can manage all your critical data transfers across the enterprise from a single pane of glass, MFT gives you complete visibility and control into where data goes. MFT is more reliable, secure, and easier to manage than protocols like FTP or HTTP, making it the preferred solution for data transfer.

Managed File Transfer software simplifies data and file transfers by providing a centralized, self-service solution for managing, securing, and monitoring the exchange of large volumes of data. These exchanges can be made by both internal and external applications or users on an automatic or ad hoc basis.

Once an application or user initiates a data transfer, the MFT solution will encrypt the data to ensure it stays secure in motion and at rest. It may also compress the data to improve delivery speed. Once the data is prepared for delivery, it’s sent to the recipient using your chosen security protocols. The data transfer is completely managed and tracked through the MFT solution, making it simple to create audit trails that ensure regulatory compliance.

MFT software is useful for managing massive amounts of file transfers while ensuring data security. APIs make it simple to easily integrate file transfers into business applications for rapid innovation and delivery of new services. And because the entire MFT ecosystem can be centrally managed and controlled, you can easily monitor performance and correct issues before they impact your business or create missed SLAs.

Secure file transfers are at the core of every business. However, many file transfer protocols are inflexible, complicated, and provide limited ability to adapt to new digital business processes or partner data exchange use cases. In addition, they often require significant IT time and resources, restricting business agility. With a Managed File Transfer solution, you can meet the growing demand for secure management that can protect data exchange while ensuring you meet compliance requirements. The benefits of MFT include:

  • Improved security and governance with centralized control of the entire MFT ecosystem via a single administration console, ensuring service level agreements and PCI DSS compliance requirements are met
  • Self-service capabilities that empower business users to create file transfer services, subscribe partners, and manage file transfers
  • Centralized administration to reduce complexity and standardize all administration tasks for the entire MFT ecosystem.
  • Operational intelligence and predictive analytics to prevent errors and ensure business quality
  • Integration capabilities that ensure IT and business user capabilities are easily integrated programmatically into third-party or custom applications
  • Ability to handle all file transfer use cases regardless of initiator, recipient, protocol, format, or schema
  • Flexible deployment models including on-premises, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud
  • Unlimited scalability that allows your organization to meet its current and future data transfer needs

New ways of working require organizations to evolve and modernize to meet changing business needs. As business data transfer requirements become larger, more frequent, and increasingly complex, it has the potential to create friction between IT and business users in terms of managing resources, creating integrations, and maintaining operational visibility.

Managed File Transfer is a requirement for any business or organization that regularly sends or receives massive data volumes that require a high level of security. MFT provides a single, highly scalable solution to meet all the file transfer needs of your organization, allowing you to significantly reduce your operating costs, gain complete visibility into your data transfers, and improve your ability to integrate data transfers into your other business systems or services.

How to choose an MFT solution

Not all MFT file transfer solutions are created equal. Many legacy MFT solutions are complex and complicated, which can require a large team of MFT experts to install, run, and maintain. This can increase your file transfer costs while reducing business agility as you wait for the MFT software integration team to create new file transfer flows for partners or customers. Here’s what to look for when choosing a modern MFT solution.
