FTP alternative

FTP (file transfer protocol) is a standard Internet protocol built on a client-server architecture that uses TCP (transfer control protocol). FTP/TCP have been around since the 70s. FTP can be used with a simple command line interface or an industry tier product with a more advanced user interface. However, the core technology behind FTP has stayed the same since its introduction.

A major criticism of FTP solutions is their technological limitations that create risks and inefficiencies that worsen overtime. Addressing the technological limitations of FTP can cost businesses an extraordinary amount of time and money. As the scale of file transfers continues to grow with larger data moving over longer distances, FTP solutions will eventually become too difficult to sustain. Signiant offers a fast and reliable FTP alternative that will save your business time and money.
