Overview

Control-M Managed File Transfer enables you to intuitively build, schedule, and manage file transfers, just like any other batch job. Combining batch jobs and file transfers in a single system prevents data errors and job failures while improving visibility and control.

Securely manage transfer files with authentication, encryption and audit trails while you retain administrative control of data using a library of templates.

Sterling File Gateway can help you increase secure and dependable file transfer with your trading partners. It consolidates disparate centers of file transfer activity and facilitates the security-rich exchange of file-based data over the Internet. It helps companies avoid the risk and operational issues that can result from using loosely controlled file-transfer servers.
