CapLinked FTP Alternative
What is FTP?
FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol (FTP). In Information Technology, a protocol is a set of rules that networked computers use to talk to one another, and the FTP is the language that computers on a TCP/IP network (the internet being the best example of such a network) use to establish a data connection and transfer files.
And the truth is that you already use FTP all the time without knowing it. Whenever a new update comes through for a program or operating system, it’ll likely be through FTP. When you download a file through a web browser, it usually happens through an FTP. It’s easy to use, it’s something that can run in the background while you’re doing something else, but it does have drawbacks when it comes to data protection. You can’t upload or ask the server any questions. And there are security issues. Big security issues. The problem is that if you’re doing anything in a Virtual Data Room, or any sort of web development, you need all of that functionality.

What Should You Consider When Looking for a Secure FTP Software?
FTP Security Issues
The problem is that FTP was never intended to be secure. It relies on clear-text usernames and passwords for authentication, and does not use encryption. Data sent through FTP is vulnerable to a number of attacks, such as sniffing, spoofing, brute-force attacks, as well as many other attacks. If those terms are unfamiliar to you, sniffing is basically the interception of data packets as they’re traveling across networks, and if the data isn’t encrypted (which in FTP it’s not) then the data can all be read. Spoofing is when a person or program pretends to be something else, thereby gaining access to the transmitted data. The list of attacks go on and on, but the point is this: FTP is NOT secure.
