Say Hello to EFT Insight: A Powerful Platform Providing Actionable Intelligence for Governing Your EFT Infrastructure

“Where’s that transfer?”

“How do I know if I received that file, or more importantly that I didn’t receive one?”

“Is all of my EFT infrastructure online and functioning properly?”

These and many others are questions that our customers need the answers to on daily basis.  The simple fact of the matter is even if 999 out of a 1,000 files get to their destination, you only hear about the one that went missing. But with most of the monitoring and reporting systems there is no easy way of singling that one failure out and drilling down on what happened, let alone figuring out if the transfer didn’t fail in process, but rather never started in the first place.

Because of that, we’re excited to announce the latest addition to our MFT suite of solutions EFT Insight, a new reporting platform designed to strengthen an organization’s data governance by providing near real-time visibility into critical data flows and exchanges.  EFT Insight uses information gleaned from servers that are running EFT and EFT’s Auditing and Reporting Module (ARM) to ensure information exchanges are functioning properly and securely.

Powerful and Native Integration with EFT

Insight was developed as the next evolution of reporting for the Enhanced File TransferTM (EFTTM) platform. EFT Insight gives administrators, network operation teams, and line of business users an easy-to-use and digestible view into your organization’s data transfers. Because EFT Insight has been purpose-built for the EFT platform, it provides a deep and seamless integration into your data transfer infrastructure that only Globalscape can provide.

Intuitive, Modern Interface

EFT Insight’s user-friendly interface provides you with a single pane of glass view of all of your most critical data transfer metrics. With EFT Insight you can quickly investigate issues with granularity or drill down into specific system data through a rich set of filters and a responsive interface. If you are running multiple EFT clusters, EFT Insight makes management easier than ever, because data is consolidated from multiple EFT nodes.

You can track the health of your data exchange architecture through customizable diagram of your system and related dependencies, including summary statistics on the individual components. Expand a server or a site to see details on status, users, current activity, activity within the last 24 hours, and administration.

Save Time and Meet your SLAs

EFT Insight provides you with a system for automating critical data transfer and event rules expectations so that you can be alerted when a problem arises. With the Expectations view you can set a schedule for when you should send or receive data transfers or event rules. Email alerts can also be set to notify users upon the success or failure of these events. By setting these expectations, you will be notified if a transfer failure occurs, letting you know in time to recover to meet SLAs.

We’re excited to introduce a tool that will help administrators:

  • Collect meaningful, actionable intelligence about their data transfers
  • Meet service level agreements (SLAs)
  • Guarantee business continuity through health assessments and predictive capacity planning
  • And verify compliance with regulatory mandates.
