Meet PCI DSS File Transfer Requirements

Banking & Finance

Data breaches, credit card fraud, and unsecure customer data regularly threaten the integrity of personal information. Current cybersecurity measures and file transfer requirements are necessary to keep financial data and bank transfers safe from increasing risk, but surprisingly, many organizations’ file transfer processes are lacking, creating accidental risks for their data security.

Some banks and financial organizations use home-grown scripts or legacy file transfer methods to protect their file transfers, but these processes leave them open to vulnerabilities and data breaches. The methods can be outdated, complicated, and prone to user error. It’s critical to follow PCI DSS requirements for file transfers instead in order to keep cardholder data safe from unauthorized access.

GoAnywhere MFT can help organizations in the banking and finance industry achieve PCI DSS-compliant file transfers. Explore the security requirements we can satisfy for this standard in our datasheet on meeting the Payment Card Industry’s standards with GoAnywhere MFT.
