One of the disadvantages of traditional implementations with multiple MFT products as well as a mixture of native FTP and SFTP servers is poor visibility to file transfer activity and exceptions.
The lack of visibility prevents IT staff from detecting and reacting to critical file transfer exceptions in real-time and makes it difficult and time consuming to analyze past exceptions and determine the root cause.
In addition, the lack of visibility makes it impossible to analyze or audit file transfer activity across time or across multiple systems.
Sentry Analytics™ monitors file transfer activity on each server in real-time and records the information in a central relational database for future analysis. The Sentry Analytics™ RealTime Monitor analyzes the data in real-time and identifies events and exceptions that trigger Alerts and or Automation actions according to defined site policies.
The Sentry Analytics™ Desktop user interface enables the user to view file transfer activity in real time as well as analyze past file transfers across time and all across all systems in the enterprise.
