Gain Control and Consolidate FTP Servers Into a Single, Manageable System

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a widely used method for transferring files within and between companies and partner communities. The problem is that FTP has been around for many years and has organically grown within organizations resulting in some significant security, compliance, cost, and operational headaches.

Security Concerns

  • How many FTP servers do you have across the network – each is a potential point of data leakage
  • Policing who has access to the FTP servers
  • Liability when connecting with partners who do not have compatible security options
  • Minimal system security options
  • Users using consumer box solutions or email for sending data

Multiple FTP Servers create a Compliance and Auditing Nightmare

  • No centralized managed and reporting capability
  • How do you ensure FTP activity is logged and archived
  • What data can people access and distribute

Operational Concerns

  • Multiple servers are each custom configured for specific tasks
  • Maintenance and logistics have become difficult to manage and time consuming to modify
  • Simple changes or additions to automated processes often require professional services
  • Multiple systems are difficult to integrate with other pieces internally and with partners that have systems that use different security protocols

Multiple FTP Servers Increase the Total Cost of Ownership

Multiple hardware and server deployments increase capital costs and ongoing management and maintenance costs. Drive down costs, meet auditing requirements, and gain control of File Transfers
