File Transfer Automation

Automate FTP and SFTP to manage a high volume of file transfers.

AutoMating Enterprise Application Integration

Enterprises frequently move hundreds or even thousands of files daily. Basic file transfer tools can be reliable on a small scale, but a large company needs a more advanced managed file transfer (MFT) solution. Enterprise-class managed file transfer software should be able to support all of your advanced requirements, like big data manipulation, complicated file names, error handling, and secure transfers. AutoMate offers a comprehensive automated MFT solution that makes managing a high-volume of file transfers easy.

AutoMate’s managed file transfer tool supports a variety of protocols including AS2, used by many financial services firms, and FTP. FTP is the industry standard for securely transmitting data, but as a business grows it becomes increasingly difficult to manage the volume of FTP activity.

Let AutoMate do the work for you. Using AutoMate’s intuitive graphical interface, all processes related to FTP can be automated and configured to any company network. One financial services firm found that using AutoMate to eliminate manual file transfers saved the IS department 36 hours per month, while a health care organization saved 5 to 10 hours per week.

Automating FTP also allows you to schedule some transfers during the low-traffic evening hours, eliminates delays between transfers and subsequent file processing tasks, and cuts back on the risk of human error—all without requiring you to write any code.

AutoMate FTP is compatible with:

  • Explicit and implicit FTPS
  • SFTP (or Secure FTP)
  • Tumbleweed Secure Transport
  • Certificate Authenticity

Did you know…

AutoMate is so much more than a managed file transfer tool. You can integrate the complete suite of business process automation actions with your file transfers. For example, AutoMate can be used to aggregate data from unstructured sources like webpages or PDFs and consolidate it into a file, which is then automatically encrypted, compressed, and transferred. After the transfer, the file could be decompressed, decrypted, and the data entered into disparate systems like ERP or general ledger—all without any manual work by you.

AutoMate’s file transfers work with the following features:
