August Recap

From cloud-based managed file transfers (MFT) to data security, and business agility, the topics during the month of August have been focused on how you can leverage MFT to achieve the most secure and efficient data transfer infrastructure.

We started the month with Peter Merkulov, Globalscape’s Vice President of Product Strategy and Technology Alliances, sharing his perspective on how cloud MFT supports business agility. The theme of business agility continued when some of our team members attended the F5 Agility Conference in Chicago. Around the middle of the month, we hit on some of the top data transfer challenges in our webinar, “Overcoming Data Transfer Challenges with EFT Cloud Services.” This webinar covered topics such as disaster recovery, how to build a scalable infrastructure, and how to handle an increased volume of data transfers when there is no additional budget or staff to accommodate. We also discussed another area of concern for many in the IT world: shadow IT and how to reduce the risks within your organization.
