Khanna's session, "Eliminate Unauthorized Data Exposure and Loss during File Transfers," will cover best practices for using
managed file transfer
(MFT) technology to protect both SAP and non-SAP data exchanges from theft, loss, export to unapproved parties, and exposure to compliance penalties. Attendees will learn how to:
- Simplify their IT infrastructure by getting rid of the typical patchwork of plug-ins, FTP/SFTP servers, and gateway- or application-specific MFT servers used to manage file transfers
- Leverage SAP NetWeaver as the control center for managed file transfers
- Enable simple, secure certificate management as well as automatic EDI content conversion at end points
IT managers can use MFT technology to ensure that the right file is transmitted to the right place at the right time based on corporate and regulatory policies, with automatic encryption, authentication, and checkpoint and restart capabilities to keep files secure in transit and at rest.
The use of MFT also overcomes the security and compliance flaws involving sharing files via FTP, YouSendIt, DropBox or physical media like USB sticks, including a proliferation of FTP servers lacking centralized visibility and reporting. The ability to track and manage all file transfer activity from a single interface expedites file traceability vital to governance and compliance efforts while also eliminating the need to administer separate systems for unstructured files and structured B2B/EDI transaction messages such as purchase orders.
