Binfer Enterprise File Sync and Share

Why you should not use clouds to sync data

There are plenty of file synchronization platforms on the market, each boasting their key differentiators. As you wade your way through this sea of providers on your search for the right solution, it’s important to know one key thing about 99% of platforms: they all rely on the cloud.

“So, what”, you may say. When it comes to transferring and replicating data, the use of cloud servers has become the status quo in recent years. But as your mother may have once warned you, just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t make it a good idea. This is particularly true for two use cases.

Use Case #1

Use case number 1 is when syncing either very large files or syncing large number of files. The key drawback of cloud providers in this use case is speed. During the file sharing process, the files first will be uploaded to the cloud and then downloaded to the destination device.

This process happens seamlessly when you are synchronizing a few files via the cloud, but when syncing 100GB of data, slow speeds will inevitably lead to frustration. This is where cloudless platforms like Binfer excel, cutting out uploads to the cloud entirely and synchronizing data directly between two devices.

Use Case #2

Use case number 2 is when syncing highly sensitive data. Each cloud service provider will claim your data is secure, but this fact remains: your sensitive data is sitting somewhere else on third party cloud servers, completely outside of your control and accessible by others outside of your organization. I say “servers” because your data doesn’t just sit temporarily on one cloud server. To ensure your data is accessible even if a server goes down, cloud providers copy and distribute your data across multiple other servers. As data hacks become more and more prevalent, that is a risk many cannot afford to make. Instead, these organizations must go in search of ‘Private Cloud’ solutions that keep 100% of the data being synchronized within their network.

Binfer Enterprise Sync solution

For organizations with one or more of these use cases, their pool of available sync solutions becomes very small, very fast. Lucky for them, one provider excels in this area, standing out above the rest. Binfer Enterprise Sync solution doesn’t use the cloud, instead of creating a direct device-to-device connection between devices. This establishes a ‘Private Cloud’ network where only authorized devices can participate in direct device synchronization. Direct connectivity ensures that your data stays 100% in your control and eliminates the need to upload to third-party cloud servers, meaning your data transfers are both highly secure and 50% faster.

While direct device to device connectivity is not inherently new, the way Binfer utilizes it is. Binfer’s all-in-one platform can be installed on a central server in minutes. Once installed, admins can grant users access to their private cloud, set up synchronization rules between those user’s devices, control what devices have access to what data, and monitor all data transmissions from one place. The Binfer Enterprise Sync platform gives enterprises the convenience of the cloud, in the privacy of your environment, all while achieving 50% faster transfer speeds.  If you’d like to learn more about Binfer Enterprise Sync, inquire on their website and someone from enterprise sales will get in touch.
