What is managed file transfer automation?

Managed file transfer (MFT) automation enables users to schedule transfers or to trigger transfers based on business events. This makes it possible to incorporate file transfers into automated, end-to-end workflows that run without manual interventions, improving efficiency and eliminating human error.

See why your organization needs to implement workload automation in this whitepaper.

How do I automate a file transfer?

Depending on your requirements and the tools or systems you’re using, there are several ways to automate a file transfer. To automate a file transfer, you need to identify the files to transfer, choose a secure transfer protocol, select an automation tool, configure the tool, set up error handling, create the workflow and monitor the transfer process. These steps can help organizations streamline file transfer processes, reduce manual effort, and improve efficiency.
