Overview
What is a messaging protocol?
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.
What does a file transfer protocol standardize?
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 file transfer protocol acts as a set of rules that enable B2B and technology connection and data sharing.
What are the business requirements?
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.
