Managed File Transfer

It allows you to securely exchange or merge your sensitive files via different, centrally monitored communication platforms. An audit trail can effectively prevent data loss or even manipulation. Your industry-specific compliance requirements as well as your company’s own specifications and the legal data protection regulations are of course taken into account. 

What is Managed File Transfer?

Do you want to transfer or store particularly large files quickly, securely and verifiably?  

Managed File Transfer solutions include software technologies that secure, control, document and also automate your entire process of electronic data exchange between any type of business relations.  

Especially now – in times of mobile working environments – you can offer a secure and efficient solution for your employees, customers and trading partners for the transfer of sensitive (company) data.  

Both structured and unstructured data of different types and sizes can be exchanged securely. This gives you visibility and control into whether security or compliance risks are hidden anywhere.

With MFT software, all compliance requirements are taken into account, even across corporate groups. 

Managed file transfer technologies allow you to seamlessly integrate even existing processes and provide more reliable encryption compared to FTP solutions and cloud storage. Comprehensive reporting of all data transfers can be customized to meet your individual needs.

How can you increase your security with MFT? 

Data security is not only an organizational approach to protecting sensitive data, but also includes the testing and implementation of software solutions that reliably protect data, whether at rest or at all stages of its journey. 

For all organizations, independant of their size, a robust managed file transfer solution provides a centralized and easy-to-use way to not only secure, but also automate and streamline data exchange and minimize the risks associated with human error. 

Both during data transfer and at rest, your files are protected with strongly encrypted protocols and automated workflows. 

MFT is a system that can be used over and over again as part of a security solution by your company to secure and automate B2B relationships. 

  • Reports and audits trails

    The solution generates comprehensive audit logs of all file transfer activity in a central database. Reporting allows you to gain access to important audit information and can be run instantly through the browser-based console and scheduled for distribution to the network or via email.

  • Audit data content

    By coupling a DLP solution with MFT software, you can detect and prevent (accidental) disclosure of sensitive, business-critical data. This makes it easier for you to meet compliance regulations and data protection laws. 

  • Person-to-Person Collaboration

    Employees, customers and trading partners can efficiently share files and collaborate from any authorized computer or mobile device. Sensitive files are encrypted at rest with centralized access controls in order to meet strict compliance requirements.

  • Protect data

    Ensure that only approved recipients can access your sensitive data and verify exactly what recipients can do with it.  

    Powerful MFT software with encryption and rights management capabilities ensures that your unpayable data assets don’t fall into the wrong hands. 


Email is the most widely used tool in both business and personal life. It provides a means of working collaboratively, interacting, and sending information. Whether it is with partners, customers, or collaborators, we share an immense amount of data every day. Collaborative technology are increases in a way to better facilitate group work and secure exchange, both in-office and remote.

Moreover, the current context is encouraging the development of teleworking and consequently makes the security of exchanges more complex. Therefore, file transfer and collaborative tools  must be secure and flexible according to your needs.
