Get expert advice about FTP vs. MFT, and learn ways to reduce risk and improve collaboration

When the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) entered the scene as innovative technology in the late 1970s, no one could imagine the growth of the internet much less the massive increase in the volume of file transfers we see today. FTP was designed to send files to and from a single person, not back and forth to multiple users and systems.

Due to an increased focus on compliance, privacy regulations, and corporate transparency—which require increased auditing, management, and security—organizations are turning to managed file transfer (MFT) solutions to replace FTP.

But before you embark upon an FTP replacement, it’s important to understand your needs and options.  We’re sharing this Gartner Research Report—Where FTP Make Sense and Why You Should Carewhich describes, in detail, the limitations of FTP and the file transfer capabilities needed for today's requirements, including:

  • When to replace FTP with managed file transfer (MFT) software
  • Where MFT fits into the technology landscape
  • Complexities involved with FTP replacement
  • Scenarios for MFT suite deployments and questions to ask for each
  • FTP software and solution alternatives
  • Key benefits of MFT
