EMA Analyst White Paper: Enterprise Automation Brings Confidence & Control to Managed File Transfers

The Challenge of Scheduling & Automating Data Movements

Secure, reliable, and on-time file transfers are critical, but often elusive goals for many organizations. Most of the time, a patchwork of legacy tools and scripts that are in place tackle the problem of moving data, but this can create complexity, while only marginally solving the problem.

What is needed is a consolidated and coordinated approach to scheduling and automating file transfers (FTP, SFTP, FTPS, MFT, and more) to deliver consistency and control within a centrally managed location.

This paper will address key Managed File Transfer Automation criteria, including:

  • Out-of-the-box prebuilt, pretested actions and other functionality that provide for easy, reliable, and reusable file transfer workflow development and maintenance.
  • Support for multiple file transfer protocols including FTP, SFTP, FTPS, and more.
  • Built-in reliability checks and restart options.
  • Advanced file filtering capabilities.
  • Security, governance, and auditing requirements.
  • Reliability and scalability to critical business processes.
