Coupling TIXstream MFT and TIXstream FX creates the optimum package for internal and external file exchange.
In many situations file exchange with external staff, business partners, etc. needs to be efficiently integrated in internal processes – without compromising security. For this use case, the optimum solution is to interconnected TIXstream MFT for internal transfers and TIXstream FX for external transfers.
Both systems may be used independently without any restrictions. But now transfer jobs may be relayed from MFT to FX as well as from FX to MFT. Therefore, an FX system is added as another storage share in MFT. Thus an MFT job can be turned into an FX download. The other way round, files from an FX upload can be send to any predefined MFT destination (optionally, after a security check).
Since the MFT system processes the relay jobs, FX can be operated in the DMZ. Thanks to MFT's flexible storage access options, there is no need for additional file copies at the relay node. Files are placed directly on the FX storage.
