Secure File Transfer for Construction and Engineering
Construction and engineering firms deal with large files on a daily basis and must share these files with various partners, contractors, and clients. CAD drawings, blueprints, contracts, and other files are often too big to send through email and are instead burned to CD or printed out and delivered via overnight courier. Neither of these options is secure, efficient, or productive.
Sending large files as email attachments causes multiple issues – storing the data, clogging or even brining down the mail server, managing the lifecycle of the attachments, backing up the attachments in addition to the standard messages, and several other concerns. In addition to this, audit trails and security are usually not available for email systems, so sensitive or confidential data can be easily exposed to unintended recipients.
Customer Success Story
John Wieland Homes Eliminates FTP for Large File Transfer
“With our previous large file transfer solution, it was awkward to set up accounts and manage permissions.
With BDS we now simply add internal users to appropriate security groups and provide them with the web address. The result is a solution that is easier to manage, easier to use, and easier to secure.”
