Safeguarding Internal File Transfers – A2A Security Begins at Home

On average, 80 percent of an organization’s information is contained in files, many of which are constantly on the move between people, systems, and applications.

Even if your accounting, inventory, payment, product, customer, and sales data isn’t traveling beyond your company’s firewall, you still need a comprehensive solution that allows you to automate, schedule, manage, secure, track, and audit the movement of all this data within your organization. Because despite the notoriety of Internet-related security threats, the fact is that the largest point of attack and compromise remains inside the four walls.

Axway Transfer CFT is one component of Axway’s Application-to-Application (A2A) MFT solution, providing your enterprise with a powerful platform for exchanging files between disparate hardware and software platforms using open protocols – with no application rewrites. A non-intrusive, high-volume file-transfer service that provides a uniform interface to users and applications throughout the enterprise, Axway Transfer CFT delivers:

Business flexibility:

  • Axway Transfer CFT delivers service orientation to allow platforms and applications to remain independent of one another, providing a simple way to leverage SOA for files and to ensure maximum business flexibility for future growth.
  • Axway Transfer CFT allows you to architect your file transfer service your way, whether it’s peer-to-peer or hub-and-spoke leveraging store-and-forward services. Axway Transfer CFT supports event-driven, scheduled, store-and-forward, and push or pull file transfer for business processes over a wide range of open, standards-based Internet protocols. Axway Transfer CFT enables the event-driven enterprise, or helps you become event-driven if you’re not yet there.
