FileXpress: Modernizing Enterprise File Transfer

Video: MFT and FileXpress - An Overview

Business users and applications exchange files on a regular basis. But what happens when security, reliability, and cost impact the ways in which your employees and your applications transfer files, both internally and with business partners? These are the kinds of challenges that Attachmate FileXpress solutions are designed to tackle.


Everyone transfers files. You’ve been doing it for years. The question is, have you outgrown your existing file transfer solution? Ask yourself these 6 questions to find out.

FileXpress: Today’s Enterprise File Transfer Solution

More than a simple file transfer utility, FileXpress is an enterprise solution that provides:

  • Customer- and partner-friendly file exchanges
  • End-to-end automation
  • File transfers of any size
  • Reliable delivery
  • Centralized visibility and control
  • Comprehensive security
  1. Is your file transfer system able to address the growing demands of partners and customers, now and in the future?
    FileXpress, Attachmate’s managed file transfer solution, is built for the Internet universe. It enables file transfers over the Internet and across all platforms, from Windows to the mainframe. It includes the latest security protocols, including HTTPS, FTPS, SFTP, PGP over FTP, and AS2. It supports browser interfaces along with file transfer clients. And it lets you easily add new trading partners as needed. The result: effective B2B integration with your partners, vendors, suppliers, and customers. 

  2. Are you spending too much time writing and maintaining complex scripts to automate your file transfers? 
    Not with FileXpress. Built-in capabilities handle event-driven transfers via hotfolders, file integrity checking, and automatic retries. FileXpress even initiates the processing of files after they are successfully transferred. You get all the benefits of automation, minus all the burdens.

  3. Do large files take too long to transfer or frequently fail to reach their destinations?
    Designed with large file transfers in mind, FileXpress offers automatic retries, checkpoint restart, and built-in RocketStream technology. RocketStream uses the UDP and PDP protocols to maximize the speed and performance of large files over long distances. In fact, RocketStream transfers are up to 30 times faster than traditional FTP transfers.

  4. How reliable is your file transfer process, both inside and outside the organization?
    With capabilities such as automated retries, packet-level data integrity checks, exception alerts, and file transfer queuing, FileXpress detects problems, notifies senders, and recovers transfers when transmissions fail. 

  5. Is file transfer sprawl keeping you from effectively tracking and controlling file transfer activity across your organization?
    FileXpress provides a virtual harness for your file transfer activity. Using a powerful browser-based user interface, you can go to one central location to define file transfer servers and configure the transfers between them. You can also access detailed information on every file transfer that occurs.  

  6. Does your file transfer system support the controls you employ to comply with internal and external security mandates?
    FileXpress supports the latest authentication, authorization, and encryption technologies, and provides detailed auditing of all file transfer activity. Furthermore, delegated administration capabilities ensure that system administrators are given the appropriate level of control—based on organizational role and security status.
