The vagaries of FTP: What to look for in a secure large file transfer alternative

Ian Hamilton, CTO, Signiant | April 4, 2016
When it comes to moving big files quickly, there are only a few options.

—    Storage independence: Many companies are utilizing or considering cloud object storage as a main storage solution or as an adjunct/backup to their on-premises storage servers. Look for a solution that allows you to control the storage behind your file transfers and to choose between on-premises or cloud storage. Ideally, it should also support multiple cloud storage vendors like AWS S3, Microsoft Azure and/or Google cloud, and allow you to move between them without a switching cost.

These are some of the main features to look for in a modern file transfer solution. If you are considering moving away from FTP, be sure to get to know all the options available including accelerated file transfer and cloud-native SaaS solutions.
