An Internal Managed File Transfer Strategy

Paul French, VP, Product & Solutions Marketing, Axway

“They’ve left out this concept of the file, because those infrastructures tend to do okay with small files, but large enterprises and even some small enterprises have lots and lots of large files. Files are everywhere. Files are the nature of collaboration. They’re the nature of integration in a lot of cases. So an internal MFT strategy is really the place where most of the potential operational improvement cost reduction, and, believe it or not, security risks, lie. We’ve spent so much time and effort looking outward at what the security risks might be and we’ve invested in secure Web gateways and in firewalls and in proxies and in all sorts of fun and exciting stuff to protect things going in and leaving the enterprise, we’ve forgotten that a huge percentage of data loss, of data breach, of challenges are associated with internal managed file transfer challenges.”
