What to look for in secure file transfer products

Sponsored by

As the prospect of significant breaches grows, the argument for secure file transfer becomes more compelling—but what exactly are you buying?

At its most basic, file transfer technology is simply a mechanism to transport a file from one system to another system over a network. Secure file transfer also involves some sort of reliable delivery, even if it’s just provided by TCP/IP conventions. Most secure file transfers are based on standard protocols such as the Secure File Transfer Protocol or secure copy.

What makes file transfers confusing is that there are several ways to provide security. The most sophisticated type is known as managed file transfer, and it adds a wide variety of management, auditing, automation, security and reliability features to secure file transfers.

This Buyer’s Essentials Guide reviews the key features in secure file transfer products so readers can make an informed purchase decision.
