About Us

Like most businesses looking at using a file sharing or file transfer service, you probably have specific functional requirements in mind. At a minimum, you should be concerned with:  

  • COMPATIBILITYWhat methods can be used to connect to the service and are they compatible with existing and legacy systems?
  • CONTROLHow can overall system access and specific folder and file access be restricted to each user account?

With those requirements in mind, we invite you to compare us to any other service you are considering, most of whom should appear on the chart below. As you can see, not all FTP hosting companies, “FTP alternatives”, file sharing or collaboration service providers are created equal.
