FTP and SFTP sites are difficult for business users to use, time consuming for IT to administer, and lack the reporting and tracking capabilities necessary to demonstrate compliance.
An alternative to FTP, kiteworks allows users to securely and seamlessly share content across devices, and makes on-going file and account management easy. Users can create secure folders and then add internal and external users for secure file sharing. IT administrators can set global policies to automatically manage file and account lifecycles, including file life cycle by transaction. LDAP and Active Directory (AD) integration, as well as single sign-on through SAML ensure that users are automatically validated with existing network accounts and passwords, reducing on-going IT support.
