Why Read This Report

The managed file transfer (MFT) market is growing rapidly as the shortcomings of using basic file transfer protocol (FTP) to support external file transfers have become more apparent. Both senior management and external auditors are increasing demands for better security and improved governance over information that leaves the enterprise, and MFT solutions provide good options for addressing these concerns. Application development and delivery professionals must keep abreast of developments in MFT solutions to provide the most-effective means for supporting information exchanges with external partners and customers.
