Simplistically speaking, MFT is purpose-built middleware that
facilitates secure and reliable file transfers between business
entities. In more practical terms, MFT mitigates the complexities that
arise in establishing and completing file transfers in B2B settings;
especially those that are a part of mission-critical workflows. Common
capabilities found in MFT solutions include:
On-boarding - Establishes and validates, preferably with minimal
administrator involvement, system-to-system handshakes between file
Automation - Automates and schedules file transfer jobs.
Protocol Translations - Completes in-flow translations between
File Delivery Assurance - Monitors file transmissions for timeliness
(sent and arrived within scheduled window); correctness (went only to
the authorized destination(s)); and integrity (arrived unaltered). If
errors occur, file owners or MFT administrators are alerted or,
depending on the error, the MFT system automatically corrects for the
error or disruption (e.g., resumes interrupted transmissions).
Data Privacy - Encrypts files at rest and in motion, with support for
unique per-file encryption keys.
Operational Security - Controls administrator and user access to the
MFT system and files; integrates with user directories (e.g.,
Microsoft (News - Alert) Active Directory and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol -
LDAP); and supports strong authentication and single sign-on.
File Security - Integrates with anti-virus programs to scan incoming
and outgoing files.
Auditing - Gathers comprehensive logs on all file transfer activities
(administers' system activities, user actions, file transfers, file
metadata, etc.) and supports forensic investigations.
