While Managed File Transfer (MFT) has many things to offer, its greatest value can be distilled  from the three most significant problems it helps eliminate.

  1. Gargantuan size files: File sizes today are out of control. A single  graphic can be 100 MB and many a PowerPoint presentation has been known  to creep towards the 20 MB range. Sending files of this size through  your email is like asking your outbox to work as slowly as possible. MFT  speeds transmission times for data sent through email and provides a  secure Web portal as an alternative method for sending files.
  2. Overdependence on IT: Many departments are stretched thin today —  and IT is no exception. So when IT staff is spending hours having to  manually manage the transfer of files and data sent through FTP, it  means they’re not spending hours working on problems that only  IT can fix. MFT allows everyday business users to securely send files,  while helping IT to automatically ensure data transfers follow business  policies.
  3. Real-world logistics: Some of your partners may reside in certain  areas of the world with network connections that would be perfect, for  the North Pole. Unreliable connections can make data transmission slow  or fail altogether, and sporadic connectivity makes tracking difficult  to say the least. MFT provides a cost-effective infrastructure for  secure data transfers outside the firewall with partners of any size.
