What to Consider When Searching for FTP Site Lists

Searching through online FTP site lists may seem like the best method of finding the right fit for your data transfer needs. But what if an alternative FTP solution provides you with the same key features and functions plus better security, efficiency and reliability? Think about signing up for a free trial with Citrix ShareFile instead.

Why should I consider an alternative to FTP site services?

Over the years, people have used both traditional File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) for their data transfer needs. However, with the increase in technological advancements and security needs, these kinds of services have become outdated because they are clunky and time-consuming to use.

With our FTP alternative, ShareFile users are able to not only transfer data of all sizes with ease but also improve its overall management.
