The ContextFile Exchange and File MovementHelpSystems. All rights reserved.

The MFT ContextCollaboration(Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, etc.)ApplicationsOrganizations exchange filesthrough different channels tobusiness and trading partners.Email AttachmentsMost of these methods are notsecure, are cumbersome, andput sensitive data at risk.DataAutomated Scripts

File Exchange TypesSERVER TO SERVER/PERSON (B2B/B2C)Automated & unattended file transfersNo human interventionCommon channels: FTP, SFTP, FTPS, HTTPSPERSON TO PERSON/SERVERAd-hoc file transfersIndividual & team collaborationCommon channels: email, FTP, web, cloud services

External ExchangesEnable secure and reliabledata channels to deal withpartners, providers,customers, etc.E2E encryption, at rest,to add an extra layer of protection.EDI document translation basedon homegrown solutions orexpensive tools.FTPHTTPSEmailSFTPHTTP

Internal ExchangesApplication integration, dataworkflows, and ETL, based on manualtasks or scripting.Internal file movement amongdifferent servers, platforms, andapplications.

Internal Exchanges Within LocationsFile exchange between remotelocations (offices, stores, dealers,hotels, etc.) and the headquartersDifferent networksNon-secure channels (FTP, mail)High admin and maintenance costsAccelerate transfers of large filesbetween remote sites.

Common Issues withHomegrown SolutionsHelpSystems. All rights reserved.

Problem #1Development and MaintenanceImplementation and changes depend on thedevelopment teamOutdated or misconfigured toolsDifficult to keep the solution up to date with thelatest security standards (PCI with TLS 1.2).Heterogeneity of scripts, codes, andprogramming technologies (Batch, Shell,PowerShell, Java, Python.)Replicated and duplicated scriptsLack of knowledge of how secure protocolswork (SSL, SSH, OpenPGP, AES, DES.)Locating and solving problems is time consuming

Problem #2Decentralized AdministrationComplex administration of various scripts,tools, and solutionsDifferent applications to activate services toreceive information from third parties such asSFTP, FTPS, HTTPS, AS2, etc.Management of service users in multipleapplications/systemsNo integration with Active Directory/LDAPManagement of encryption keys iscumbersome

Problem #3Limited Automation CapabilitiesReliability: No auto-resuming and retrymechanisms to ensure deliverySimple workflows: Limited automation for filetransfer. No data transformation or integrationbetween applications capabilities.Users manually operating with sensitive data:payment of payroll, orders, etc.File encryption/decryption is still a manualprocess

Problem #4Audit and NotificationsNo centralized audit trailsNon-existent/incomplete execution log of workflowsFile auditingMail alerts not always implemented (i.e. userdisabled)Audit compliance: The GDPR, PCI DSS, SOX, HIPAA,Central Banks and more

Problem #5SecurityENCRYPTIONUse of unsafe transport protocols. FTP! Also for internal movementsFiles being sent without encryptionUse of vulnerable algorithms and encryptionPasswords in the clear as part of script cod.Missing a key and certificate management systemACCESS MANAGEMENTSegregation of dutiesDeactivation of accounts due to failed login attemptsStrict password policies; multi-factor authentication

Problem #5SecurityARCHITECTUREThe DMZ network is more vulnerable, and files could be accessed by hackers.The credentials are contained outside the security of the private network.The availability of the FTP service itself may be compromised.Scripts must be created to "move" the files to the internal network.

Common NeedsProtect the data that isbeing exchanged andguarantee the delivery.Manage and control filetransfers from a centralsite, a single pane of glass.Regulation compliance:PCI, SOX, the GDPR, ISO:encryption, auditing, andreporting
