Like most businesses looking at Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS), Managed File Transfer (MFT) or software more broadly described as "Secure File Transfer", you likely have specific functional requirements in mind. At a minimum, you should be concerned with:

Security

What systems and controls are in place both to protect unauthorized access and to enforce secure access upon authorized users?

Compatibility

What software and protocols can be used to connect to the service? Is the service compatible with all existing and legacy systems?

Control

Who sees what and what permissions do they have on certain files or folders. Can user-specific folder and file access be restricted?

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.
