Automated File Transfer and Secure FTP

Automate file, data transfer, ETL & EDI to manage a high volume of transfers


Automate offers a comprehensive automated file transfer solution that makes managing a high-volume of file transfers simple and easy to use. 

Organizations frequently move hundreds or even thousands of files daily. Basic file transfer tools can be reliable on a small scale, but larger enterprises require a more sustainable solution. Automate's FTP automation capabilities support advanced requirements, including big data manipulation, complicated file names, error handling, and secure transfers, using a simple, straightforward approach. 

Automated File Transfer Capabilities

Automate's internal FTP engine is compatible with all FTP connection methods, particularly security-based connections. This includes both explicit and implicit FTPS (FTP Secure or FTP-SSL) that adds support for the Transport Layer Security (TLS) and the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) cryptographic protocols. Certificate authenticity is supported for those servers that require clients to authenticate themselves using a certificate. SFTP (Or Secure FTP), which uses Secure Shell (SSH) protocol is also supported.

Automate’s automated file transfer solution 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 automation can be 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 five to 10 hours per week.

FTP automation 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.

Synchronize and Augment your ETL and EDI processes

Your data is the cornerstone of your business: you use current data as the basis for new business decisions and to inform customers and stakeholders of change. You rely on Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) tools to sync your databases and clean up your data, and you rely on Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) processes to transfer secure data to patients, customers, insurance companies, or other business entities.

Though your data is central to your business decisions, it’s not an isolated entity. With Automate, you can combine your data transfer with related solutions to get the most out of your data across the enterprise. Automate combines the power of ETL and EDI to keep data synchronized across internal systems and securely deliver data to external partners and customers.
