Last weekend marked the 40th anniversary of the introduction of the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). While FTP certainly isn’t pretty to use, it has served a purpose. Originally designed to enable programmers to move files between systems, FTP has continued to serve that purpose nobly for the past 40 years.
However IT departments who have used FTP as the basis for employees to share files across the enterprise, have had less successful results.
