Managed file transfer

Modernize, consolidate and secure large file transfer across the enterprise

Managed file transfer (MFT) solutions empower organizations to securely share files between systems and users. As file types, sizes and volumes increase at an exponential rate, traditional exchange methods, such as email and FTP, are neither safe nor practical for sensitive or proprietary content. MFT software and cloud services facilitate fast, secure and reliable critical information exchange, such as CAD/CAM designs, healthcare records, financial information or human resources files. Modern MFT solutions also provide trading partner onboarding, data visibility and compliance audit support.

OpenText™ Managed File Transfer solutions, available as software or cloud-based managed services (MFTaaS), provide a cost-effective and secure alternative to exchange information of all types and sizes.
