Most cor­po­ra­tions lack the exper­tise and tools to respon­si­bly secure, man­age and audit FTP usage. We offer a File Trans­fer Analy­sis to help you under­stand the amount and type of FTP activ­ity that is tak­ing place in your orga­ni­za­tion as well as the tools and processes in place to man­age and audit FTP usage.

Why do you need a File Trans­fer Analysis?

  • FTP is avail­able on vir­tu­ally every plat­form in the enter­prise and requires very lit­tle train­ing to use.
  • FTP is the quick­est and most acces­si­ble file trans­fer solu­tion in the enterprise.
  • It is com­mon for large com­pa­nies to have tens of mil­lions of file trans­fers per year.
  • Most, if not all, FTP file trans­fers are com­pletely unse­cured.
  • Unse­cured FTPs send logon infor­ma­tion and data in clear text.
  • Reg­u­la­tions like HIPAA, SOX, Graham-​Leach-​Bliley and FISMA require you to trans­fer data respon­si­bly.
  • FTP is an inte­gral part of pro­duc­tion work­load these days and can impact ser­vice level agree­ments.
  • File trans­fers are prob­a­bly hap­pen­ing that man­age­ment wouldn’t approve
  • Sen­si­tive data is being trans­ferred in and out of the enter­prise with­out proper over­sight and safeguards.
  • Man­age­ment assumes FTP is being man­aged responsibly.
