Ensuring your data stays protected from cybercriminals targeting MFT vendors By Meetesh Patel

The concerning surge in ransomware attacks targeting Managed File Transfer (MFT) vendors, including several significant breaches that have occurred this year, is getting a lot of attention. These incidents not only impact the vendors themselves but also pose a risk to their customers, who rely on secure file transfers for their day-to-day operations.

In light of these events, we at Axway would like to reassure our customers that we take the security of our MFT offering seriously. Our Product, R&D, and Security teams are constantly working diligently to understand these breaches, bolster our defenses, and enhance our software and services to provide you with the utmost protection.

We’re in this together.
