What makes Enterprise FTP a better solution for file transfer and FTP automation?

Let’s start with the word “enterprise.”

“A unit of economic organization or activity, especially a business organization.”

If enterprise and organization are associated, then Enterprise FTP would be an FTP solution for organizations, in particular, business organizations.

Here’s a count down of the top 10 reasons your business will benefit from enterprise FTP.

10. Enterprise FTP Is Built for Business

With Enterprise FTP you get all the features offered for a standard cloud FTP file sharing account plus upgrades and enhanced capabilities dedicated to larger companies that are looking for a partner to support large file transfer operations. FTP is often a mission-critical component of an organization’s daily workflow beyond what basic file transfer and communication tools offer.

Enterprise-level file transfer accounts are designed to meet the needs of modern, global-reaching businesses. Those that require additional security or compliance measures, enhanced documentation or contracts, and a powerful web interface to manage data and users. Enterprise plans provide additional top-tier features, support agreements, account management services, and custom options.

Direct access to engineering and integration specialists for dev questions can save you time and headache if you don’t have the I.T. staff for troubleshooting.

8. Service Level Agreement

To comply with additional terms and regulations your organization may need to select enterprise-level services and software. Make sure your business is getting the quality file sharing solution you need with a service-level agreement (SLA).

Get a commitment from your FTP provider with an SLA. A service-level agreement or custom terms of service should come standard with an Enterprise FTP account. These agreements are a way to define and agree on the services your business will receive.

With file sharing, SLAs include aspects of the availability and quality of the service, as well as specific responsibilities of the provider. Guaranteed uptime, storage space, and transfer speed are all outlined in the agreement for high-level Enterprise FTP contracts with ExaVault.

Large and even medium-sized businesses benefit from high capacity storage. Enterprise FTP is where you get the most online storage plus all the benefits. There are plans for Enterprise FTP storage with ExaVault starting at 1TB.

Need more storage? No problem.

Transfer all the files you need to each month. Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that can be transferred over a period of time. With unlimited bandwidth, you won’t have to worry about large file transfers slowing you down.

5. Custom Branding

Is the ability to customize your file sharing service a must for your business? Custom logo is the first step to being competitive in the online market. But, you can get so much more.

Examples of user types such as marketing manager or creative assistant and their different permissions.

Don’t stop there, set permissions for each of your users. You decide who can upload, download, delete, and access which files and folders. Add, delete, or modify users any time with no per-user cost. Grow your business not your budget.

3. Enterprise-Grade Security

Top notch security is quickly becoming table stakes when it comes to selecting a hosted FTP provider. Enterprise-grade security protects your data and your company. Network and FTP server infrastructure should be fully redundant. Immutable logs for every account transaction improve control.

A typical automation flow might involve files that come from vendors or customers to your ExaVault account. Then, webhooks generate the notifications to your waiting applications, and finally use the API to pull those files into your business systems as needed.
