Each client and project subsequently requires the transfer of very sensitive files. The files can range from intellectual property that is not for public consumption to dicom files containing PHI that require HIPAA compliance.

Med Institute needed a more secure and efficient way to collect those files.

Since many of the resources involved in the process access content from a secure environment, it was important to have a solution that did not have java and did not require any plugins nor installs. Ease was also important. Audit, encryption separate from the application, secure access channels, interactive reports and granular permissions allowed IT to focus on ease, knowing compliance and governance were already addressed.

What Will You Get Out of This?

Inside and outside the office, FTP servers are used by human and non-human actors. Files are read, deleted, moved and copied by a variety of shared credentials. Overtime, FTP servers get overloaded and start consuming bandwidth and devouring storage resources.

This guide details some of the main points and details what you should be looking for in a self-hosted FTP server replacement.

We're a global company and SmartFile helps us transfer files internally across countries. I like the logging, security features and the limited time access capabilities for files. It also ensures that files are traceable and sent securely and it's really easy to see who has access and who does not.
