The WS_FTP Server Ad Hoc Transfer module enables organisations to enforce consistent policies and processes around person-to-person file transfers, including email attachment offloading, security, privacy, risk mitigation, eDiscovery, and more.
The Ad Hoc Transfer module gives IT complete visibility into person-to-person file transfers, while providing end-users with a more convenient way to send files – up to 4GB – via a web browser or Microsoft® Outlook®.
It doesn’t matter if your file transfer interactions are implicitly ad hoc – spontaneous, impromptu, and defined at the time of collabouration – or are predefined, scheduled, and recurring explicit interactions. The Ad Hoc Transfer module can improve the management and governance of all these interactions and more, delivering powerful benefits for three important user groups: file senders, file recipients, and IT professionals.
Never again have to rely on insecure emails, instant messengers, thumb drives, or file transfer websites. With the WS FTP Server Ad Hoc Transfer module, authorised users can securely send files to anyone in the world. Users can also send a package of files along with an optional delivery note to an unlimited number of recipients, even those who are not WS FTP Server users.
Recipients are sent email notification the instant a WS_FTP Server user sends them a file. The email notification includes an embedded link to securely download the file or files, an optional note from the sender, and password requirements. This email message can be viewed in any email client or Webmail application, and the recipient only has to click the embedded link to access the files – no plug-ins required.
By providing employees with an efficient way to securely send files, the Ad Hoc Transfer module gives IT the control it needs to ensure complete data protection and frees them from the administrative burden of provisioning users. Moreover, it streamlines reporting of all file transfers for compliance and auditing purposes. The Ad Hoc Transfer module also removes the file attachment burden on the organisation’s email server caused by bounced emails and clogged inboxes.
The Ad Hoc Transfer module is available in the WS_FTP Server Secure and Premium Editions.
