A best-in-class solution for critical workloads
Within the Axway MFT portfolio, Transfer CFT is developed, maintained, and widely used to secure file transfers for business-critical workloads.
Transfer CFT is more flexible, manageable, scalable, and secure than conventional, application-based file transfer approaches. It is the most advanced mainframe dedicated managed file transfer solution available today.
It provides robust capabilities usually found only in MFT Gateways solutions, enabling organizations to securely transfer and track files between disparate hardware and software platforms without application rewrites.
Customers from different areas (finance, manufacturing, retailers, healthcare, communications) can connect their critical mainframe applications with the rest of their ecosystem regardless of whether those applications are on different networks, on-premises, or in the cloud.
Through integration with one of Axway’s Gateway solutions, those applications can exchange with external partners as well. Transfer CFT provides easy integration with APIs, folder monitoring, and scheduled jobs with those applications.
Transfer CFT also has an internal mechanism that allows file transfer prioritization, bandwidth management, time slot management, transfer restarts, and full platform independence.
As a key platform for Transfer CFT, all new product features and enhancements are natively available on z/OS and Z/Linux. In particular, items related to security, with support of TLS 1.3 and PGP support for encryption, continuous improvement of performances, items related to high availability and scalability to limit any business impact for critical applications during maintenance operations, and items related to operational efficiency aspects: providing intelligent interfaces for facilitating administration, troubleshooting and flow definition.
