The growing need for secure file transfer and government rules and regulations for transferring sensitive data drives the managed file transfer market

The need for sharing files between multiple companies and systems has become critical for all enterprises. At the same time, file types, size, and volume are increasing at a rapid rate; hence, traditional sharing methods such as email are not very helpful. Moreover, the exchange of large sensitive files, healthcare records, financial reports, etc., has become common in enterprises. This transfer brings high-security risks, especially if using FTP, email, or other insecure transport options. These problems are solved with the help of managed file transfer solutions.  Various rules and regulations have emerged in the file transfer market to increase the security and integrity of sensitive data. For instance, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) for the payment industry, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for the healthcare industry in the U.S., and EU Data Protection Directive.
