#1 Alternative to FTP

JetStream accelerated file transfer software transfers your large files with blazing speed, enterprise reliability, and military grade security. Our powerful software is renowned for its ease and simplicity.

Easy to set up and user friendly, JetStream will get your projects moving quickly and your teams collaborating faster. Used by many different industries to move files globally, they rely on JetStream’s robust transfers for speed with no time outs.

Secure FTP Alternative

Companies who handle data transfers know that security is a top requirement, but FTP was not designed to be a secure protocol. Because it does not encrypt its traffic, it is subject to many security weaknesses including the interception of FTP-based file transfers. Some businesses have moved to SFTP, but it lacks the file transfer acceleration benefits that JetStream brings.

With JetStream secure file transfer software, security is built-in. We provide comprehensive security to your files through user authentication, tokenization, and transfer-level encryption. In addition, the JetStream Security Layer provides confidentiality, data integrity, packet replay protection, and more:

  • Point-to-point connectivity between the client and server (also known as end-to-end encryption), so only you and the recipient can see the transferred data
  • Industry standard encryption, including SSL (TLSv1.3 or TLSv1.2) for JetStream Server connections and AES 256 for data transfer
  • Enhanced connectivity security using machine validation
  • Support for existing domain credentials, with user authentication via LDAP(S), Active Directory (AD, ADS), or database
  • Ability to restrict user activity to specific resources and folders
  • Support for Relay configuration, minimizing a machine’s connectivity to the internet

JetStream secure large file transfer default settings are always the most secure, but users can alter the configurations based on their needs. For example, settings can be adjusted if customers choose to use JetStream with a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

An Easy to Use FTP Alternative

JetStream’s clean and intuitive interface requires little to no training. Simply drag and drop to start transfers or use Watch Folder automation.

Because FTP sends files on a first come, first served basis, you can’t interrupt or reprioritize transfers to fully manage your business priorities.

With JetStream, you can monitor transfer activity through our dashboard with the ability to make effective changes to your transfers. Pause, speed up or simply get the ETA; it is that easy. If required, you can change transfer priority with a few simple clicks.

Lastly, JetStream allows you to leave the burden of complex set-up behind. No need for an intrusive installation or highly technical people to maintain the software. All user types can access JetStream accelerated file transfer so you won’t have to heavily rely on your IT department.

Fast Data Transfer

FTP is legacy technology that is heavily affected by networks with high latency and impairments. As file sizes grow, FTP causes file corruption due to timeouts and may fully stall during large file transfers. In essence, FTP is unable to keep up with the demands of organizations that consistently move large files.

Our state-of-the-art technology enables you to use your existing full bandwidth potential to transfer large files without incurring additional infrastructure costs. We don’t cap your bandwidth so JetStream can adapt to your current workflow and grow with your future needs. We also include central monitoring and flexible bandwidth control to optimize for speed or multi-tasking. JetStream allows you to upload and download files quickly, no matter what:

  • Unlike FTP, SCP or RSYNC, use 100% of your available network capacity
  • Multi-threaded read and write systems have sufficient IOPS to maintain target transmission rates
  • Send rates dynamically adjust to adapt to current network conditions
  • Control how much bandwidth to allocate to file transfers.

Built For Integration

As an older type of technology, FTP requires your IT team to spend hours or days custom coding to deal with file transfer challenges such as scheduling and integration.

JetStream is an FTP alternative that is purpose built for integration and includes open API Information at no extra cost. Our simple method of integration allows you to programmatically transfer large files between JetStream servers or be integrated as part of an existing workflow. As a result, your IT team can focus on strategic tasks while file transfers work seamlessly behind the scenes. Workflow automation is readily within your reach.
