As an integral interface to your customers and partners, and a strategic foundation for supporting your sources of income, MFT and B2B connections play a vital role in 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, hastily-assembled quick fixes and expensive legacy mechanisms, such as leased lines, frame relay connections and modem pools has created virtual anarchy for many companies, especially with the increasing volume of data and number of partners and processes, and continually evolving standards. 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 also open up security holes that put data at risk and undermine compliance with government and industry regulations. What’s more, 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 deal with issues when they arise.
Now is the time to move from the reactive projects that have fuelled the chaos to a strategic approach.
