External file sharing is essential to the operation of any organization. Teams have to collaborate in order to achieve goals and accomplish projects.
When it comes to choosing an external file sharing platform, a number of key questions must be considered:
- Is it easy for end users to use?
- Is it practical?
- Does it keep company data secure?
- Is this platform the best possible choice?
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) has been around since the early 1970s. Yet, despite its antiquity, FTP continues to be one of the most popular choices for external file sharing for the enterprise. While FTP is very easy for end users to work with, there are serious security risks to be considered.
Do the benefits of using FTP outweigh the risks? Is there a better choice for external file sharing?
These are the questions we explore in our new free PremierPoint Solutions white paper, “Choosing an External File Sharing Approach: FTP vs. SharePoint Extranet.”
Find out if using FTP is exposing your company data to unnecessary risk, and what you can do about it.
