A software company requires to share new updates to their product whenever there are improvements or new features and to keep customer’s previously purchased software up-to-date.
Using anonymous sharing, the company can provide the same URL to all customers by embedding a link in their site, or sending emails, etc. Customers can download the update whenever necessary from the FTP server without needing to log in. The company can also share multiple anonymous folders and have different links for various products.
