Many businesses struggle to find reliable solutions for transferring large files and turn to FTP sites as the solution. The FTP protocol is well known for its ability to transfer large files, so this makes a lot of sense. However, when a business makes the decision to set up an in-house solution, many challenges arise
IT professionals will agree that the setup and management of an internal FTP Site is time consuming and demands ongoing time that can be better spent. The more cost effective option for a business is to turn to a fully managed, fully integrated, offsite solution like ExaVault.
Outsourcing the setup, management and maintenance of an FTP Site makes sense for several reasons. A company's IT staff can release the burden of working with the hardware and software needed to setup and run a fully functioning, very secure solution. Hardware costs are mitigated. Time spent on upgrades and security patches are non-existent. ExaVault makes this even easier by allowing you to sign up in minutes and put your own logo/brand on your FTP site.
A traditional FTP site has its limitations. Sharing files, reporting on account activity and managing the access of clients and employees can be difficult. While FTP is a great file transfer protocol, it lacks some of the modern innovations many businesses would enjoy. That's where ExaVault stands apart from the crowd.
We offer a suite of modern web-based tools that seamlessly integrate with your FTP Site. They allow you to easily:
Plus, customers and clients get a fully branded experience when sending and receiving files and companies get a fully integrated service that just works with their existing workflow.
