Using FTP, FTPS, and SFTP, transfer and store files in the Cloud with high-speed transfer speeds anywhere in the world. Share media files (videos, audio, graphics, etc) with clients, business partners, and the public through different restricted accessibility.

The Challenge

Media businesses have different levels of shareability with their files that require a managed data infrastructure to grant access to intended parties. Using HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, or SFTP, the company can share media with the public, or privately share documents with clients and business partners securely. Some media files are very discreet and require a protected funnel when transferring important information to prevent any leaks to the wrong viewers. Also, media companies require a secure upload tool to receive submissions, requests, etc from 3rd parties into their data infrastructure.
