In times where file transfer looks so readily possible via email, mass storage devices, USB, Cloud drives, etc., organizations face the challenge of data integrity and security. How do you ensure that the data employees share with trading partners is not susceptible to leakage, loss, and hacking? While these methods may suit the convenience of employees, when it comes to safety, security, and the business need as a whole, these are not potent enough to uphold data security.
What IT teams are looking for is a secure business file sharing solution that they can control, where data is hosted within their data center, and under the cover of their own network security. This is possible with FTP.
Internally hosted FTP server software can help achieve properly encrypted and user-validated business file sharing. Unlike Cloud services, where you are supposed to store data on 3rd-party servers, an on-premises FTP server helps prevent your sensitive data from being exposed to any Cloud service providers. The technology of managed file transfer simplifies the way businesses exchange files.
Serv-U® Managed File Transfer Server simplifies, secures, and speeds up business-to-business and peer-to-peer file transfer. With intuitive FTP client interfaces for file upload and download, employees can easily exchange files over Web and mobile devices across the globe, around the clock.
Using secure file transfer protocols such as FTPS and SFTP for file transfer, organizations can know that their data-in-transit is protected with high levels of encryption, and their data-at-rest is protected by their own network security infrastructure.
The Serv-U® Gateway add-on can be used for highly secure networks where no external connections are allowed in the private network. Installing Gateway in a DMZ segment strengthens the security of traffic to the network. Gateway keeps data from being stored in the DMZ and helps you meet PCI DSS and other regulatory compliance standards.
