Frequently Asked Questions
File transfer protocols, sometimes called EDI messaging protocols, act to transfer files both internally and externally to business customers, suppliers, vendors, and other network trading partners.
B2B/EDI protocols standardize content and format. They further enable secure file transfer and data transport by outlining a standard procedure for regulating the data exchange internally and between businesses. A secure file transfer protocol acts as a set of rules that enable B2B and technology connection and data sharing.
Protocols and standards differ across industry lines. And while protocols are sets of rules, individual organizations determine which set to use based on their own industry and compliance needs. As this implies, there are many file transfer protocols used to communicate today.
The main advantages of sending and receiving files over a secure file transfer protocol are the ability to:
Transfer data internally and outside the firewall
Automate transactions and eliminate errors
Increase reliability and scalability
Securely share business intelligence
Meet compliance and SLA requirements
Protocol flexibility becomes increasingly important as your network of trading partners and customers grows.
Understanding your current and future connectivity needs — including file sizes, volumes, transfer frequency, and security requirements — will help your organization select the best protocols.
