ATLANTA, Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Strategies for safeguarding SAP data that is shared outside the SAP environment, both inside and outside the corporate firewall, will be the topic of a free one-hour webinar at 2 pm ET on Thursday, September 29. The webinar, "Protecting SAP Data with Managed File Transfer," will be hosted by SAPInsider and sponsored by SEEBURGER.
The session will address the security, governance and compliance risks of emailing or FTP'ing critical or sensitive SAP data such as customer lists, material master data, financials and sales reports, particularly when the files exceed email size limitations or involve unstructured information exchanged between business users. Managed File Transfer (MFT) solutions eliminate these risks by automating and securing the end-to-end management of data transfers — from provisioning through transmission — both across and outside the business. Benefits include guaranteed delivery, a complete audit trail of receipt times and recipients, and reduction of FTP-related costs and administrative inefficiencies.
Webinar participants will learn:
- How MFT complements EDI and B2B transfers
- The three kinds of common file transfers and how to efficiently protect all of them
- Five reasons to worry about human-to-human transfers
- Automated approaches to empowering business users and getting IT out of the loop
- How MFT enforces business policy, security and governance
- How companies in several industries are benefiting from MFT
Presenters will be Bill Metallo, Vice President of Business Operations for SEEBURGER, and Mahesh Sheth, Lead Consultant for Larsen&Toubro Infotech Ltd., a leading global IT service provider with a highly regarded SAP practice.
