About this event

We will delve deeper into MFT, a robust solution designed to facilitate secure and reliable file exchange for businesses with partners, vendors, and customers. It not only ensures security but also guarantees delivery and provides complete transaction visibility from sender to recipient.

Below, you'll find an overview of the topics we will explore:

  1. Listeners: Clients can establish connections with MFT through configured listeners, enabling seamless file transfers and the execution of various commands, including directory listing retrieval.
  2. Virtual Folders: Create a Virtual File System (VFS) to offer an abstract representation of resources on your remote server, simplifying resource management.
  3. Actions (Post-processing, Scheduled): Define actions and trigger them to empower the server to perform specific tasks or sets of tasks according to your configurations.
  4. Users and Templates: Tailor user profiles by configuring restrictions, either using predefined settings or customizing templates to suit your needs.
  5. Logs: Gain insights by viewing file transactions and action execution details, especially for post-processing and scheduled actions.
  6. UI Permissions: Provide restricted access with granular permissions to specific MFT screens, ensuring appropriate user privileges.
  7. Asset Movement: Seamlessly import and export assets in zip files within the cloud environment, enhancing flexibility and resource management.
  8. Database Archival: Store file transactions and action executions in the MySQL database, while also archiving data for retrieval in an archive database.
  9. Other Settings: Explore additional settings and configurations to optimize your MFT deployment.

We will also guide you through the following use cases, demonstrating how to implement each one:

  1. Transfer files from Amazon S3 to Azure Blob Storage.
  2. Automate the execution of post-processing actions whenever expense details are uploaded to a remote server. These actions can directly invoke integration layer services to process files and transfer them to Snowflake.
  3. Securely receive employee files from your internal system, apply data encryption, and transmit them to a remote SFTP server."

This comprehensive exploration will provide you with a solid understanding of MFT and its capabilities for secure and efficient file management and transfer.
