Use secure FTPS and SFTP protocols to transfer files between business partners, warehouses, supply orders, all in one manageable data infrastructure in the Cloud.

The Challenge

Retail companies require a secure data infrastructure that organizes important confidential data such as for inventory, clients, and products. Files should be protected during transfer and when accessing their database. Processing data is key to increasing the efficiency of the business. This requires high transfer speeds to allocate EDI files, supply orders, inventory updates, etc. whenever a change is made. For bigger companies, this becomes more complicated as branches expand to different countries. The retail industry also manages hundreds of employees in which require different restrictions to the database.
