fast file transfer

More businesses are transferring large files over long distances today than ever before. Whether you’re in the entertainment industry or medical field, you’ll find yourself working with data that has moved between multiple locations. Despite file transfer being a common practice, not all files move at the same speed. Many details impact file transfer including the size of the file, the end-point locations, the path, the devices, firewalls, network systems, and encryption.

Up until recent technology innovations, transferring large files over a high bandwidth network would take a long time with major security risks. Traditional web and file transfer protocols (FTP) were greatly affected by the distance a file would travel due to latency and loss compensation. Recent technology innovations have made file delivery quicker and easier, and Signiant is leading the way in file transfer.

Using Signiant’s acceleration protocol makes delivery times up to 200X faster than previous FTP solutions with 95% higher network efficiency. Our UDP acceleration protocol compensates for network latency and loss in IP networks.

The Signiant software suite offers unparalleled capabilities for bandwidth management. We provide predictable transfer times and prevent overloading of the network. Media Shuttle ensures fast file transfer to save your company time, money and stress.
