File Transfer Tools

File transfer tools are readily available and widely used, but when it comes to modern media operations, many of them have big weaknesses that can and should be avoided. Just some of the common file transfer tool deficiencies include: 

  • They take control of your media and move it to their storage
  • Security protocols are not always designed for media
  • There is no file acceleration
  • There is limited insight transfer operations

Media companies have unique technical and workflow requirements, and you need a file transfer tool built to adhere to them. Using the right tools for a project can make file delivery easier and more secure, but using twelve separate tools for your company’s various file transfer needs becomes a hassle and a security risk. You need a tool that is fit for your purpose.               

With storage independence, security, proprietary acceleration technology, and centralized control and visibility, Signiant’s file transfer tools — Media Shuttle and Jet — are used by more than 50,000 media and entertainment companies of all sizes.
