From email to Dropbox and FTP, the file transfer process in most organizations is fraught with risk and simply does not meet most organizations’ corporate governance requirements. The result is that the status quo of file transfer in most organizations can be considered UFT—or Unmanaged File Transfer.
What is needed to overcome the problem, therefore, is Managed File Transfer (MFT)—a solution that will enable complete control over content, its lifecycle, access rights to that information, the maintenance of an audit trail, and disposition of data according to corporate governance requirements.
This white paper, sponsored by Attachmate and based on a survey conducted by Osterman Research, describes current file transfer practices and the extent of risk that organizations face by not managing file transfer properly. It also explains the benefits of MFT, provides guidelines for evaluating file transfer vendors, and describes FileXpress®, Attachmate’s MFT solution.

The adoption of enterprise content collaboration solutions has exploded as individuals sought ways to easily access, manage, and collaborate on content. Accordingly, businesses want to leverage those easy-to-use solutions but can’t compromise when it comes to enterprise-grade administrative control, security, and business insights.
“Security” is the number one issue holding business leaders back from the cloud. But does the reality match the perception? Keeping data close to home, on premises, makes business and IT leaders feel inherently more secure.1 But the truth is, cloud solutions can offer companies real, tangible security advantages. Before you assume that on-site is the only way to keep data safe, it’s worth taking a comprehensive approach to evaluating risks. Doing so can lead to big benefits.
File sync and share can increase productivity, but how do you pick a solution that works for you? There will likely be a number of factors guiding your decision, and if you’re like most businesses, security is high on the list. Download to learn some important questions to ask file sync and share vendors about security.
Losing data is costly. According to the Ponemon Institute, the average data breach costs US organizations an estimated $200 per record, or $5.4 million total per breach. And apparently these breaches are equally likely to be from criminal attack as from employee or contractor negligence. It makes sense then that surveys point to data loss via unsecured file sync and share solutions as one of IT’s biggest concerns. IT professionals have spent years learning how to protect their organizations from hackers, but how do you ward off both external and internal threats when employees are seeking ways to collaborate more and more?
Not so long ago, the office was the only place you could work. But when smartphones and tablets came along, the only thing holding us back from getting work done anywhere, any time was having access to our data. That led to the creation of a whole new class of solutions designed to keep files current across our rapidly proliferating fleets of devices — through a technology known as ‘sync.’ All of a sudden, getting a file from your work laptop to your iPad became as simple as clicking “Save.” So it’s no surprise that 55% of information workers in North America and Europe who use a tablet at work are using file sync and share tools.
Protecting your data isn’t a feature on a checklist, something to be tacked on as an afterthought. Security is at the heart of Dropbox for Business, informing not only how we approach new features and enhancements, but also how we’ve designed the product itself.

This whitepaper examines the "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) movement, from carrying around a floppy disk to today's "cloud" services. This paper explains that employees may not be aware that their file transfer methods can cause a risk to security. Ways to ensure that employees can securely send files without risking corporate data security and what that dangers are with BYOD transfers are also discussed. Recent security breaches are referenced in the paper, and why such attacks are expected to continue into the future. The paper concludes with a description of how companies can ensure data security and how Globalscape's secure file transfer products meet and exceed that need.
The cloud is ubiquitous. Whether we think about it consciously or not, almost all of us are using cloud services. That could be a music service such as Spotify, storage such as Dropbox, communications via Gmail, or a software-as-a-service application such as Salesforce. Cloud services touch all of our lives.
