Managed File Transfer Software Comparison

Comparing Enterprise-Grade Managed File Transfer Tools With Filemail

Global MFT

The rise of cloud based Managed File Transfer (MFT) software, is in direct response to enterprises that need file transferring capabilities with additional requirements. Due to the volume of data, and an ever demanding environment, old solutions based on the file transfer protocol (ftp) cannot provide the speed, nor the security, nor the demands set by governments.

Large corporations must handle sensitive data with the utmost facilitation of data security, auditable file transfer activity, and regulatory and legislative compliance. There are a multitude of MFT software and services, which offer secure and efficient data transfer.

Additionally, you’ll find some common features, such as administrative control, but the efficacy and robustness of these various features can vary. Some of these features maybe procured as an add-on, some are included, so let’s take a look at the Managed File Transfer solutions landscape.

Client Testimonials

Bruce Fairbank (Labette Bank)

I have used Filemail for several months and find it very easy to use. It solved problems we have here at the bank when we need to send large files. The platform also provides a secure way to send confidential information back and forth between the bank and our customers.

Rory Gillies

Jeg er en freelance kameramann, og avhenger av andre og deres tjenester. Jeg har brukt Filemail i årevis og er veldig fornøyd med produktet. Jeg kan til og med laste opp materiale i 4K direkte til live-redaksjonen fra iPhonen min via fil-appen. Den er lett å bruke, og klientene mine synes det samme - det er enkelt og raskt. Den nylige oppdateringen er spot on, og får websiden min til å se bra ut med profesjonelt uttrykk - alt dette med Filemail implementeringen.

Fabio Dondina

We have been using Filemail for several years with great satisfaction. It is a very fast service, especially with the Filemail Desktop application, both for uploading and for downloading. Furthermore you can easily upload files over 2 GB and the localization in Italian makes everything easy and immediate.
