Control, Automate and Secure your Organisation’s Data Transfer Activities.
The Wizuda MFT solution provides a centralised hub through which all data transfers are automated and managed securely, compliantly and efficiently, giving full end-to-end accountability.
From real-time streaming to scheduled ad hoc transfers, Wizuda MFT with auto-resume and guaranteed file delivery, ensures your data gets to where it needs to be, when it needs to be, and within SLA timeframes, thus avoiding penalties and maximising customer trust.
Some of the key benefits include:
Enterprise-wide visibility of all transfers through one centralised platform
In the event of a cyber-attack, one of the first places auditors investigate are ad hoc scripts as they pose significant areas of weakness. FTP servers are also particularly vulnerable to compromise.
The Wizuda Data Transfer Suite uses a layered approach to maintain integrity and confidentiality of the file data both stored in and passing through the platform.
All data transferred through the Wizuda MFT system is automatically screened for malicious content and all transfers use the highest industry standard secure protocols such as AES encryption and RSA public key infrastructure, SFTP Host Connectors and Virtual SFTP Servers.
Wizuda MFT’s structured architecture ensures that data transfers are achieved in a consistent manner, without the need for scripting or programming – thereby allowing legacy scripts and insecure batch processes to be safely decommissioned. With Wizuda MFT you can ensure your data is secured and encrypted at rest and in transit, therefore protecting it at all times in the transfer journey.
Wizuda MFT offers a variety of secure transfer options which ensure that data is transferred over the most secure channels. The secure sources and destinations are configured in the MFT system using Host Connectors. Host Connectors are the means from which the data Transfer Jobs connect to the source hosts to authenticate and transfer the data to the destination locations.
Wizuda MFT includes extensive transfer protocol options, including but not limited to;
Wizuda MFT’s Virtual Servers use key fingerprints to allow clients to connect. This involves verifying and accepting the client’s fingerprint, and storing it, or the key it refers to locally along with some of the other client’s information to allow future connections to be authenticated automatically. Fingerprints are smaller in size, allowing for connections over untrusted channels (e.g. the internet), where a public key would be too large to send for authentication.
Each transfer job can be created to perform a variety of tasks including, but not limited to;
Wizuda’s unique ‘Health Check’ automatically alerts you of file transfer issues as they occur, enabling you to proactively manage them before they impact the business. Scheduled checks monitor host connectivity, authentication, folder and transfer statuses, alerting users of any system or delivery threshold issues. Alerts are issued in real-time when systems are offline or delivery thresholds are broken. Full monitoring logs and reports enable users to locate and fix issues quickly.
At the application level, Wizuda MFT comes with automatic load-balancing and high availability, and can provide options to quickly scale up or scale out, increasing operational efficiencies. A simple process of adding virtualised servers, scaling up or out does not affect the existing implemented machines and/or processing.
While the load-balancing is automatically managed, the client might also wish to add more processing power to certain transfer jobs, something which is easily achieved by defining the number of instances required for processing on a job-by-job basis.
Items within Wizuda MFT, be it host connectors, transfer jobs, application servers, virtual servers, impact assessments, or data anonymisation jobs; all go through their own customised workflow for creation, setting changes, and activation. This automated workflow process helps to ensure efficiency and accuracy throughout.
The number of workflow steps and approval groups are defined at the installation stage of Wizuda MFT, and do not require further code changes.
Workflow administration manages which permission groups have the ability to move items along the workflow chain, as well as which stages they can progress through. This is to ensure that data protection or business critical fields within the items can be monitored for changes which could potentially breach GDPR guidelines, as well as a company’s internal data protection policies.
