Organizations adopt Managed File Transfer (MFT) to meet broader IT use cases and business requirements. Using FTP as its foundation, MFT offers additional features and functionality to make it a comprehensive file transfer solution. MFT often uses a wider variety of secure protocols and encryption to help ensure the safe transfer of sensitive data of all types. Whether it’s business-to-business file transfer, or peer-to-peer file sharing, MFT facilitates fast and secure file transfer for businesses big and small
In a recent Gartner publication ("Managed File Transfer Features You Will Need for Your Integration Projects"), analyst Ben Huang laid out several criteria for a managed file transfer solution.
By itself, Serv-U satisfies most of these criteria, including "Access to Directory Information" through direct integration with Active Directory (AD), "Endpoint Management" though AD or integration with an external database, and "Authentication" through its support of multi-factor authentication.
When deployed with Serv-U Gateway, Serv-U satisfies all of these criteria, including "Internal Resource Protection (Proxy Server)" and "Security: At rest and in motion". Serv-U Gateway provides a secure reverse proxy that prevents data from being stored at rest in a DMZ segment or connections from being initiated from the DMZ into the internal network.
In technology, examples like Google demonstrate that inexpensive does not necessarily mean inferior. Similarly, we pride ourselves on implementing next generation technology, from IPv6 to native 64-bit applications, before our competition.
When you invest in Serv-U, you can be assured that we will support:
Serv-U is developed by a staff that holds CISSP, GSNA and CCSK certifications (which meet U.S. DoD Directive 8570.1). We use FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography, and have earned a rare Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) from the U.S. Army.
Our Serv-U Gateway component is engineered to ensure that no data is ever stored in the DMZ, and that no connections are ever made from the DMZ into an internal network. When used with Serv-U, Serv-U Gateway meets or exceeds requirements in PCI DSS 2.0, HIPAA, SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley), PIPEDA and many other regulations and policies.
