Seamlessly Integrate Managed File Transfers – For Maximum Control, Visibility and Performance

Data management is the lifeblood of any enterprise. Ensure that the right data from the value chain is available in the right place, at the right time, with the Stonebranch Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution. In combination with intelligent scheduling and visual workflow design capabilities, enterprises are empowered to automate the flow of data between disparate applications and platforms via native managed file transfer capabilities. Data movement is highly secure, and the platform is designed to transfer data within your internal environment or externally with third-party partners and vendors.

File transfer plays a crucial role in supporting your evolution to the cloud by keeping data in-sync across your hybrid IT environment. Moving data around your environment is made even easier with support for container technologies like Docker and Kubernetes.
