The simplest way to think of a web based file manager is to think of it as your hard disk drive while the website where you have an account for storing files works like your desktop. As such, online multimedia storage is like having a virtual and, more importantly, secure hard disk drive that you can access whenever or wherever you may be as long as you’re using an Internet-capable device.
With this type of service, you’ll be asked to secure your account with your own password but aside from that, the website also uses secure data streaming and encryption to prevent unauthorized third parties from gaining access to your account and files.
If your business requires you to send confidential information online such as medical or financial records and transcripts, you can enjoy better peace of mind and know that your files are completely safe if you download and upload them through an Internet multimedia storage provider.
When you have a website up and running, you can also use your account as a FTP so you can easily transfer files between your computer and your website.
