SendThisFile goes beyond FTP with 128-bit SSL encryption on all transfers, including both uploads and downloads with our servers.

When not sending files you get complete file management reporting with send receipts and download logs.
FTP is insecure, complicated, and highly technical to use. There are many security issues with FTP including bounce attacks, spoof attacks, brute force attacks, packet sniffing, username protection and port stealing. FTP servers can only handle usernames and passwords in unencrypted plain text. FTP even uploads and downloads files without any encryption at all. With FTP it is difficult to tunnel of SSH, limiting who can be sent a file over FTP.
Also, FTP users must download from the myriad of FTP software options, ensure that it is up-to-date. FTP software users must also be familiar with technical issues such as port configuration. With FTP there is no way to know who downloaded the file and there is no file logging or reporting. SendThisFile is completely web-based and offers an easy-to-use graphical user interface while automating the technical aspects of sending a large file. There is no software to download or update and there are no cryptic error messages
