Managed File Transfer

Managed file transfer refers to a software or a service that manages the secure transfer of data from one computer to another through a network (e.g., the Internet). MFT software is perfect for schools and school districts that have to share data frequently but must do it in a secure, FERPA-compliant, way. Using an MFT is an alternative to using ad-hoc file transfer solutions, such as FTP, HTTP and/or, heaven forbid - unsecure email.

Perhaps no company better epitomizes the transitions occurring in this broader industry better than Ipswitch.

It supports system-to-system, person-to-person file transfers, all with fast on-boarding and the ability to dynamically scale resources as needed through the cloud.
