The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is Managed File Transfer?

Managed File Transfer (MFT) refers to software or a service which manages the secure transfer of data from one computer or device to another through a network. IT Central Station enterprise users use Managed File Transfer because it offers a much higher level of control and security than other transfer solutions, namely FTP and HTTP. IT professionals see MFT as required - as opposed to once being only an option.

IT Central Stations users face certain choices when considering Managed File Transfer systems, including the flexibility within varied technical and business requirements for file transfers within various, large organizations. In addition, scalability and capacity are key as IT is always looking forward in time for system and organizational growth. SaaS model adaptability is always considered in the mix.

Managed File Transfer applications exist as both on-premises licensed software packages and SaaS. Applications can be offered as a custom design for large organizational enterprise use while others are off-the- shelf for sale to consumers. Easy functionality, extensibility, mobile and web-platforms are always considered when investing in a Managed File Transfer solution package. IT always likes to streamline its resources for the purpose of agility and budget. Some providers of enterprise-focused SaaS Managed File Transfer have the ability to manage the addition of trading partners.

IT Central Station IT & Devops managers prefer Managed File Transfer because it offers better choices including reporting, non-repudiation, agile notification of successful file transfers, global visibility, auditability, end-to- end security, automation of file transfer- related activities and processes and performance metrics monitoring. Managed File Transfer will always recover the same features and the process used by IT has a substantial impact on agreement of the most elegant solution. Foremost in the minds of IT experts and analysts are six (6) possible usage patterns: SOA, Cloud, B2B, A2A, Accelerated or Extreme Transfer and Ad Hoc. All of these are unique, require different methods and are defined by their own markers.

Buyers of MFT solutions expect them to support protocols such as FTP/S, OFTP, SFTP, SCP, AS2, and HTTP/S. The ability to securely transfer files over public and private networks using encrypted file transfer protocols is essential. Encrypted file storage is also considered important. MFT solutions need to able to authenticate users through IAM systems like LDAP and Active Directory.

The cloud solution is not that great specially with Swiss customers. An on-premise server should still be a solution available (always). It should not be restrained to cloud technology.

What do you think of Safe-T Software-Defined Access?

Valuable Features We use only it for scanning files for viruses. That's the only feature we use in this product. • Room for Improvement It needs to be easier to configure, it should be something that's working well with other sources. It should be something that allows me to see the logs simply. • Use of Solution One to three years. • Stability Issues Sometimes it doesn't work with a particular external program. Sometimes the process doesn't work but I don't know if the problem is on the Safe-T side or if it's the external program. • Customer Service and Technical Support Yes, we've used support but only their support in Israel. I would rate them a seven out of 10. They need someone who has more experience with Safe-T. • Previous Solutions We didn't have a...

Feature such as its ability to sync data between the servers with minimum downtime, rollback with just a click and replicate website configurations were great.

How has it helped my organization?

This product helped me a lot for deployments day and night. I have never seen a problem with RepliWeb, it's a great product and a reliable solution.

What needs improvement?

Maybe it would be great if the tool could have an analytics dashboard, with the total commitments and the number of rollbacks in a timeframe. Perhaps, to even have an Android app for remote deployment, instead of going through a browser.
