Managed file transfer

Managed file transfer

(also MFT)

Managed file transfer definition

Managed file transfer (MFT) refers to a type of software or service that provides a secure and controlled way of transferring files from one computer to another over a network. MFT services offer more robust features compared to standard file transfer protocols like FTP (File Transfer Protocol) or HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol).

MFT is an excellent choice for businesses that need to securely transfer sensitive data on a regular basis. They are commonly used in industries like healthcare, finance, and retail, where data security and compliance with regulatory standards are critical.
