One of the common methods people use to mail big files is to compress the files and attach them to several email messages. Another method people resort to, is to use different online applications to transfer bulk files. While all these are plausible means of moving files, it is often hard to rely on these services. Also, you cannot always be confident that file transfers are done on secure servers. If you are dealing with confidential files online, security is one of the most important things you have to consider when looking for ways to send and receive files.
Law firms are some of the many businesses which need a secure way of sharing files. If a law firm simply depends on conventional means of sharing files, anyone can break into the system and have unauthorized access to your clients’ files.
A secure FTP software provides a venue for a network of users to share, store, and transfer data easily. You won’t have to worry about unauthorized access to your files as you can set the level of permission for different users. This is especially important if you have to share confidential files to different clients. You can have your files on different folders and send access permission to these folders to different clients without worrying about directing them to other parts of your database.
