Improve the reliability and security of your file transfers
File transfers are a critical part of many business services. To get maximum speed and efficiency of service delivery, file transfers need to be managed as an integrated step of the business service. BMC Control-M Advanced File Transfer 8 enables you to:
- Manage your FTP transfers securely
- Eliminate lag time between file transfers and subsequent processing steps
- Gain instant visibility into the status of your transfers.
- Use automated recovery capabilities to improve reliability.
Integrate file transfers into your automated workflows
Control-M Advanced File Transfer lets you schedule and track FTP transfers like you would any other batch job. Use your favorite Control-M features—like problem prediction, impact analysis, auditing, forecasting, self-service, and cloud support—to take full control of your file transfer operations.
Build file transfers into scheduled jobs
Instead of managing transfers separately, include FTP actions as steps in your new or existing workflows.
Schedule and monitor file transfers from a central interface
Create recurring file transfers and track their status from within your Control-M dashboard.
Choose from several security and encryption options
Transfer files securely either via SFTP or FTP with SSL, with the option to use PGP encryption as well.
Automate the recovery of failed transfers
Recover and restart any failed transfer automatically, either from the point of failure or from the beginning.
Reduce staff and resource requirements
- Eliminate development and maintenance costs for homegrown file transfer integrations
- Replace manual file transfer tasks using sophisticated automation capabilities
- Cut back on network traffic with tighter, more controlled file transfer practices
“Because [Control-M Advanced File Transfer] watches for files and takes action after successful transfers, we no longer need sustained connections to FTP servers. Consequently, we’ve seen a decrease in network traffic to and from the BMC Control-M servers.”— Sonny Samarakoon, SAP technology lead, Sun Chemical
