Tom works as a finance director for a mid-sized consulting firm in New York with offices in Chicago, San Francisco, Sydney, and London. Several times each year, the firm has enough business to open a temporary office in a new city.
The offices operate largely independently, but corporate services like accounting, HR, and legal reside in New York. Every week each office generates a 20GB file containing all of the local financial data on revenue, costs, staffing, etc. It’s critical that this data is delivered safely to the home office every Friday.
Tom needs a secure way to receive financial data from all of the company’s offices. He is reluctant to use cloud-based file transfer software because the offices are moving sensitive client and employee data, and it’s imperative that firm data is only stored on-premise.
To preserve the firm’s reputation, it must take every precaution with data movement. Tom considered FTP as a large file sharing solution, but decided against it due to high cost and complicated installation, which is a major problem when opening a temporary, remote office.
Tom is also frustrated that regional managers are using different file transfer software, and file transfers are not arriving fast enough for him to consolidate and close the books. He needs a fast, easy solution that meets the firm’s security needs.
Tom searched online for file transfer software that could do three things well:
- Send large files with no size, type or quantity restrictions.
- Send data without the cloud so that files are not stored outside the company’s control but is transferred securely.
- Send large files fast.
Tom’s search turned up Binfer, which could do all three. Binfer allows his regional offices to send data of any size straight to the New York HQ. The firm’s financial information resides on its on-premise devices only, and is never stored on third party storage providers’ servers. Because of Binfer’s direct device-to-device protocol, files move twice as fast as standard, cloud-based file transfer delivery methods.
Finally, large file sharing when they open a temporary office is easy. All Tom has to do is ensure sender and recipient have Binfer accounts, and both can send large files immediately. A 256 bit encryption – the same level as most global banks – ensures all file transfers are secure.
Now Tom gets the files he needs every Friday afternoon quickly, easily and securely.
