Unlike FTP, which transfers files and passwords in clear text for anyone to see, ShareFile uses up to 256-bit SSL or TLS encryption to protect your files during transfer. ShareFile also can be accessed using any web browser that can access the Internet and does not require the opening of additional ports or the installation of special software.

Additionally, ShareFile offers many value-added features not available with FTP, such as company branding, keyword searching of files and folders, configurable email alerts on file uploads and downloads, and easy user management.

NOTE: ShareFile offers compatibility with standard FTP for users within your company who may prefer to use existing FTP tools to access their data.
