ExaVault Cloud FTP is merging with Files.com to create the world’s largest company focused exclusively on cloud native SaaS Managed File Transfer.
Files.com has acquired ExaVault, a cloud file transfer vendor for SMB and mid-market businesses, instantly creating the largest cloud-native SaaS file transfer and automation platform, with over 6,500 active business-to-business (B2B) customers in the combined business.
If you don’t know Files.com, you’ll find a very similar file transfer platform to ExaVault — only with many more capabilities. Among other things, Files.com has global data storage options, significantly more granular security and permissions, syncing capability with other cloud platforms, and out-of-the-box SOC-2 compliance.
In the SaaS file transfer industry, scale matters. As a combined company, Files.com and ExaVault will be able to serve customers, and the market, better than ever before.
They’ve found that customers are exchanging files with each other more than ever before. Files.com will be investing heavily in new workflow tools in 2022 to offer enhanced logging and operational intelligence when exchanging files with another Files.com customer.
Once integrated, any of their combined platform’s 6,500+ customers will be able to directly exchange files with each other as part of an automated, secure on-platform workflow.
They are committed to having the integration occur without disruption to the existing workflows and processes of Files and ExaVault customers. This means they’re investing major R&D effort into the integration. The first connections are expected to occur within the next month, and full integration to be achieved by early-mid 2023.
This acquisition increases the Files.com workforce to 60 full time employees as of today, with a plan to expand to 110 over the course of 2022. The growth is primarily concentrated in R&D, but will also include dozens of new customer success, support, and account management staff to ensure the success of this integration.
“I am excited to join an industry leader like Files.com, who has a proven reputation of supporting customers through powerful solutions and exceptional service. Files.com’s mission and approach mirror how we think and operate”
“Together, we will provide more value-driven innovation to customers through our greater combination of world-class tools, expertise, and experience.”

Becoming the preferred cloud-native SaaS file integration and automation platform didn’t happen overnight. Files.com was built by talented people pursuing a singular vision: providing the best file-based transfer, integration, and automation platform on the market.
As long as we keep that focus, the possibilities for Files.com are endless.
