Understand, Quantify and Address the Risks and Shortcomings of FTP and Other Ad-Hoc File Transfer Processes
Featuring IDC Analyst Maureen Fleming and William McKinney of IBM
FTP turned 40 last year, and is still pervasive for exchanging bulk data within and between companies. It’s estimated that nearly a third of companies perform a majority of their file transfers using FTP.
While the perceived costs of FTP are minimal, FTP has seen and unseen costs associated with its inherent management challenges, security risks, compliance issues, and lack of automation. In fact, FTP has been blamed for many catastrophic business process failures—more than any other single piece of technology.
These challenges are forcing companies that use FTP to modernize their file transfer technologies and processes, which can prove costly and complex without the right strategy and technologies in place.
What are the options to upgrade, replace, consolidate and/or offload your at-risk FTP processes?Maureen Fleming of IDC and William McKinney of IBM will tackle these issues in the first webinar of our three-part Managed File Transfer webinar series. In this webinar, entitled “Overcoming FTP Risks and Challenges with Managed File Transfer,” they will provide valuable insights around FTP remediation, including:
- What are the capabilities and business impact of managed file transfer solutions?
