File transfer software is widely used and most commonly based on FTP (File Transfer Protocol). However, FTP was designed for simple interactive file exchange and as a result it lacks certain essential capabilities, which generates the need for a FTP alternative. A viable FTP alternative should be a file transfer software that offers a fast and secure FTP solution, able to send large files while ensuring the essential management, security, acceleration, and process automation capabilities necessary to support automated system‐to‐system, secure file transfer.
This white paper identifies and analyzes the shortcomings of FTP, including how secure FTP is, FTP’s performance when sending large files in large numbers is involved, how it deals with firewalls. It highlights how the managed file transfer process can be improved and how an effective file transfer software and FTP alternative was designed, to include and handle:
This white paper will discuss how the peer‐to‐peer model, with centralized management of data transfer business rules, is ideal for building cost effective, highly scalable, and easy to deploy solutions that address data movement requirements of all sizes and complexities. Signiant is an effective FTP alternative, not only a more secure FTP, but a suite of software applications amounting to more than just another file transfer software able to send large files.
