42 percent of organizations say that information security is an aspect of their file transfer systems most in need of improvement.

We're betting that you see managed file transfer (MFT) simply as a management tool. It's certainly a reliable way to ensure and control mass data transfers. However, as the September 2010 eWEEK Executive Strategy Planner shows, security risks are very real when it comes to mass data transfers -- and such activity does not have the same risk profile as E-mail does. MFT is an effective solution to resolve security and compliance issues for many organizations, according to the eWeek report. And, by integrating these risk-management features at the source, MFT provides the benefits of security and compliance solutions without the unwanted byproducts of standalone security solutions, which can sometimes hamper employee communications or hurt productivity. eWEEK's Executive Strategy Planner, 'Managed File Transfer: The Unsung Security and Compliance Solution,' is based on a survey conducted by Ziff Davis Enterprise Research. The study features the results of a survey, fielded in June and July 2010. The survey had 516 respondents involved in file-transfer systems at organizations of all sizes.
