Files.com has been used by hundreds of companies to move an in-house or on-premises FTP server to the cloud.

On-premises FTP servers are costly, and involve a lot of time and headache to maintain. They eat up bandwidth, and can be easily hacked without a trace.

More ways to connect

In addition to FTP, with a Files.com account, you’ll be getting a cloud file server with several connectivity options. You can also connect via SFTP + SSH Keys, WebDAV, our Web Interface, Desktop app, and our the API.

SFTP

Both FTPS and SFTP offer the ability to transfer files through a secure, encrypted connection. The difference however is that while FTPS uses SSL and is fairly basic, SFTP uses an SSH connection which allows the use of public/private key pairs for authentication instead of passwords.

WebDAV

Many of our users prefer to map their server as a drive, allowing for access like a familiar file system. If this is you, you can connect via WebDAV on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

Web Interface

The state-of-the-art Files.com Web Interface works in all modern browsers, and allows you to seamlessly send and receive files without having to download any software or additional plugins.

It’s simple enough that even the least technical users will be able to manage it effortlessly, yet powerful enough that it can be configured to meet and exceed your organizations needs.

Also, with custom branding you can tailor the site for a unique user experience that fits your company’s image.
