Ultimately, every leader wants to take their organization to the next level. But there are a lot obstacles that may interfere with that progression. Are you:

  1. Facing difficulties meeting compliance mandates?
  2. Having trouble meeting service level agreements (SLAs)?
  3. Seeing an increase in overhead costs due to growing inefficiencies?

If you answered yes to these questions, then it may be time to evaluate one underlying factor:  your organization’s data and how it moves across systems, people, and third parties.  Is this done in a secure, automated, and reliable way? If you are using any of the common methods of automated file transfers such as the following: HTTP web-based, windows task scheduler, or outsourced data management, then consider the following solution for your automated and managed file transfers.    

Automate Data Transfers with EFT

File Transfer Automation through Enhanced File TransferTM (EFTTM) improves the overall operational efficiency because it eliminates dependence on unreliable methods of data delivery. EFT enhances network visibility, increases the security of your data at rest and in transit, and increases overall employee productivity and efficiency, all while helping to facilitate compliance.

Streamline your data transfers, using strategies such as:

Program Workflows. Create programmatic workflows that can be used to trigger events and actions based on specific conditions. From being aware of multiple invalid logins to processing and scanning all incoming files, being able to program workflows saves time and minimizes errors.

Streamline Business Processes. Automated workflow tools that are used with managed file transfer solutions can help optimize business processes, even when sophisticated and complex workflows are needed. MFT automation tools help administrators perform complex tasks and remove the possibility of human error.

Process Files with Added Security Measures. Antivirus scanners and data-loss prevention tools can permit or prevent file transfers based on your policies, help keep your network free of infected files, and help comply with regulatory standards by preventing personally identifiable information from being transferred.

Deploying an MFT solution, like EFT, means taking a proactive and preventative approach in automating your data transfers. If you’re ready to simplify and optimize your file transfer process, automate with EFT Enterprise.
