Managed file transfer automation with ActiveBatch

Unified Managed File Transfer Solution

Many IT teams automate their file transfers using batch scripts or file transfer management tools. As a result, managed file transfer (MFT) operations and MFT software are often managed separately from other internal systems, making day-to-day IT and business processes more complex.

Organizations can solve this problem by using a single workload automation solution to consolidate and coordinate enterprise file transfer processes. With ActiveBatch Workload Automation, IT can automate and control its managed file transfer operations without involving a separate MFT solution.
