Ridgeon Network provides FTP Hosting and Online Storage for business but with a convenient difference. Often with FTP Server providers your end users will be required or expected to connect to the service using FTP Client software (FileZilla, WinSCP, Cyberduck to name a few). However, whilst this is useful for managing external file systems, if your end users are not familiar with such software, this could become a barrier for them to share files with your business.
Ridgeon Network provides a full web-based interface that is available both via standard HTTP and Encrypted HTTPS, both are accessible from any web browser and are brandable with your company logo and colour scheme. No FTP experience is necessary, just give your users a link in an email or on your website and away they go.
Your clients and suppliers also have the option to use either FTP software or the web interface with the same account which reduces administration for the FTP site manager who creates one account for that user. Additionally, the web based interface supports 256bit encryption using SSL (the same technology used when you logon to your online banking) which means your clients and/or suppliers have a convenient and yet secure mechanism to exchange files with your business.
You may also have clients who have very strict company firewalls that might block traffic such a FTP ports or just allow web browsing - the secure web interface provides a hassle-free portal to your Secure FTP Hosting without the need to put in firewall change requests to your IT Manager/Administration team.
