Use Case Series: Making Ad-Hoc Transfers More Practical

For most businesses, file transfer is an integral part of operations. Many organizations use the same file transfer processes on a regular basis, receiving data from partners, moving data internally, or sharing data with external companies.

But sometimes there is a more temporary need for secure file transfer with the same high standards of authentication and encryption.

Perhaps you need to share data with a potential business partner, providing one-time access to specific files or folders. Alternatively, you may need to send just a single file to a specific customer, without giving them unnecessary access to your network.

Consider the large housing association that spent hours working with shell scripts and adjusting firewalls to make ad-hoc transfers a possibility.

Even once transfers were complete, the applications support team would spend their time cleaning up. Removing all applicable user permissions and restoring standard operations was just as time consuming as setting up the transfer in the first place.

With FileXpress, ad-hoc transactions and transfers are made incredibly easy. The Applications Support Team can now configure new transfers instantly.
Meanwhile, the FileXpress platform continues to provide detailed auditing, error handling and file integrity checks.

Since implementing FileXpress, the housing association is better able to share sensitive data with partners in any industry, without being deterred by the prospect of complex ad-hoc transfer configuration.

What’s more, the organization can be more open to exploring new business opportunities and working with new partners, even on a temporary arrangement.

Although FileXpress is a solution powerful enough to drive all your file transfers, it remains notably flexible, even for occasional data movement.
