It is the present and future of data management because of its mobility and scalability. These benefits are significant and worthwhile, but there’s more you need to consider. Whether you’re already relying on a cloud-based solution or planning to implement one soon, your top focus should be on secure file transfer.
Updated December 19, 2016 Transferring files from one computer to another is something that you can do in a few different ways depending on your preferences. For years, one of the most common has been through a technique called FTP, or file transfer protocol. Data is transferred from its origin to its destination by way of a TCP network, with the Internet being the most prominent example. FTP Cloud techniques have emerged in recent years, which replace the TCP-based transfer network with the power of the cloud itself. In an era where security is key, however, more advanced techniques have been developed like the SFTP cloud to help users make sure that their confidential information is safe and secure at all times. From concept to execution, the SFTP Cloud brings with it a wide range of benefits that can't be ignored.
