Breaking Shadow IT and Solving Enterprise Application Compliance Problems
What's Shadow IT? Gartner analyst Simon Mingay wrote in a research report that Shadow IT in a broad sense includes "investment in the acquisition, development and/or operation of IT solutions outside the formal control of formal IT organizations". To put IT simply, Shadow IT refers to a department or individual who uses IT-related hardware or software without knowing the IT or security group in the organization. In reality, employees in general enterprises rely on software that has not been approved by IT departments. Business departments bypass IT departments and use applications on the cloud to complete their work efficiently and quickly. These are also called "shadow IT". Although "shadow IT" and "business value" doesn't sound directly related, using shadow IT is quite simple and direct. But when shadow IT was exposed, IT revealed many security vulnerabilities to IT departments. Enterprise employees can easily bypass the IT team's approval, but they cannot check the reliability and security of the selected application in depth. Employees unconsciously input important enterprise data into unauthorized cloud services, which makes enterprise data security a gamble directly. In fact, at present, nearly 80% of employees in general enterprises rely on this software that has not been approved by IT departments. Faced with this situation, what should IT leaders do if they find that these unsafe applications are being used by employees or are sharing sensitive information? It's obvious that it's natural to react quickly and demand that these applications be stopped immediately and that employees who violate the company's data security regulations be punished. However, the value gained by IT leaders from the discovery of Shadow IT is equally important for future IT decisions. What is the problem with Shadow IT? If IT executives find that employees are using free file sharing applications, the next step is to find out why employees use them. For what reason do so many employees bypass FTP and other systems and secretly use these applications for file sharing? Only by breaking the root cause of Shadow IT entering the enterprise can we improve the current situation of the enterprise and truly protect the data security of the enterprise. It's easy to find out that many employees express their weakness in the processing efficiency of existing enterprise application systems. FTP is time-consuming and complex, and email is limited by attachment volume, so professional software procurement costs are high. The huge amount of data and the impatient urging of customers make them need a fast way to transfer files. Although the situation of each enterprise is different, fundamentally, the biggest reason for employees to use these file transfer software is that they can handle their work at any time and anywhere with a low cost or even zero cost. Breaking Shadow IT and Solving Enterprise Application Compliance Problems Recognizing the above problems, we will find that it is not enough to order employees to stop using unsafe file sharing applications. No matter how hard IT leaders try to control the organization's data, employees can choose unsafe solutions. Enterprises can choose compliance solutions such as Raysync. The goal of Raysync is to help enterprises and IT departments solve the normative problems of file sharing and provide easy-to-use and high-speed file transmission solutions for enterprise employees to improve office efficiency.

How to Improve File Transfer Speed?
In recent years, the increase in file size and number has brought challenges in file transfer. Firstly, files are transferred across borders, with serious packet loss and delay; secondly, it is also very difficult to transfer terabytes and petabytes of big data and move very large files. It requires users to spend hours or even days. The file must first be downloaded from the source system to its local desktop . Only after success, can upload to the target server begin. Traditional file transfer methods are far from meeting the needs of enterprises for high-speed, complete, and secure file transfer. The performance and security of file transfer have become obstacles to the rapid development of many enterprises. The high-speed Internet connection can help increase file transfer speed, but high-speed Internet connection has a certain threshold. Advanced file sharing technology is required to process large files, that is, those files with time-sensitive information need to receive data as soon as possible. The latest report shows that from 2016 to 2023, the global hosted file transfer market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6%. With this growth, cloud-based file transfer solutions will receive attention, File sharing is necessary for international companies to create a collaborative environment. It ensures that everyone can access the latest mission-critical information, whether in remote offices or branch offices. Raysync high-speed data transmission is developed using proprietary technology based on the User Data Protocol , which can increase file transmission speed and reduce data packet loss. Using the file transfer protocol can also optimize the transmission speed. The use of UDP-based technology can maximize bandwidth utilization and overcome the possible bandwidth limitations of other protocols . In addition, intelligent routing technology is used to monitor network conditions and select the fastest transmission path with the highest success rate. This allows companies to simultaneously transfer large files to multiple global locations, 100 times faster than other methods.

How to Transfer Files Securely under the Complicated Network Environment?
The 21st century is an era of rapid development of data and information. Mobile Internet, Internet of Things, social networks, e-commerce and so on have greatly expanded the boundaries and application scope of the Internet. Various data are expanding rapidly, and the whole society has entered the era of big data. However, big data is a double-edged sword. While the country and enterprises vigorously promote the innovative application and benefit of big data, criminals and the "black industry chain" are also stealing and selling information wantonly on the road of data transfer. "Streaking" of Core Information in Big Data Environment Data and information contain the great value, and criminals are pervasive, collecting and selling all kinds of data and information, which leads to the disclosure of personal privacy, enterprise core data, and even state secrets on the Internet. As the basis of data interaction, data transfer and file transfer are the hardest-hit areas of data leakage. Common data transfer risk sources are as follows: 1. The safety risk coefficient of the big data transfer process is high; 2. The management of enterprise data transfer is not strict; 3. The encryption link is too weak; 4. The file transfer tool used is unsafe.

How to Ensure the Safe Transmission of Large File Data?
At present, the amount of file-type data in enterprises has increased sharply, and many enterprises usually use conventional methods such as email, IM tools, FTP, and network disks for file transfer. When the file capacity increases and the network environment deteriorates, the efficiency of file transmission and data exchange is low, and the security is poor. If the file is larger, usually a lower method such as express hard disk is used, which cannot meet the requirements of enterprises to obtain files in time. Seriously affect the overall operating efficiency of the enterprise. Besides, the use of the above-mentioned traditional transmission methods is too decentralized, which is not conducive to centralized management of enterprises. In the era of cloud computing, enterprises currently have more and more service nodes and storage nodes, and data flow requirements based on business processes and hybrid cloud architecture are also increasing. The lack of an effective file transfer management platform is undoubtedly a major pain point. So what transfer methods do companies generally use to transfer large files? 1. CDN Technology CDN: Content Delivery Network . By adding a new network architecture to the existing network, it is mainly composed of two parts, divided into two parts: the center and the edge. The center refers to the CDN network management center and the DNS redirection resolution center, which is responsible for global load balancing, and the equipment system is installed in the management Central computer room, edge mainly refers to remote nodes, the carrier of CDN distribution, mainly composed of Cache and load balancer. Choose to publish the content of the site to the "edge" of the network closest to the user, so that the user can obtain the desired content nearby, thereby improving the response speed of the user to the site to a certain extent. The data requirements of CDN are only independent documents or "independently replaceable" document parts. 2. Transmission Technology Based on FTP Protocol FTP ) is the abbreviation of the File Transfer Protocol. FTP allows files to be shared between hosts and is used to control the two-way transmission of files on the Internet. It is a C/S system. FTP uses different port numbers to transfer different content, and different TCP connections are established. First, use TCP to generate a virtual connection for transmitting control information, and then generate another connection for data transmission. Combined with the FTP protocol, it can use file or file , file verification, and other technologies, and can also transfer large files. FTP transfer software such as also can manage users, block or filter designated IP addresses, Port, control user upload and download speed, detailed transmission history, and log, and can also carry out an encrypted transmission of data. It has the advantage of ensuring transmission security and protecting personal privacy. 3. Transfer Files Based on Middleware Use MQ, MT, and other middleware to transfer files, with data compression, large file transfer, and breakpoint resumable transfer. The transfer of large files uses BlobMessage, which uses fileserver to transfer efficient processing. Message middleware technology has two core functions: asynchronous and decoupling. These two core functions improve the working efficiency of the application system as a whole, enhance the usability, stability, and scalability of the system, and can realize the safe and reliable transmission of large files. 4. IM Instant Messaging Technology Most of the Instant Messenger technology is based on TCP/IP and UDP for communication, while TCP/IP and UDP are communication transmission protocols based on the lower-level IP protocol. The former is through the form of a data stream, after dividing and packaging the transmitted large file data, through the virtual-circuit connection established between the machines, a continuous, two-way transmission protocol that strictly guarantees the correctness of the data is carried out, mainly Reliable transmission is achieved through mechanisms such as checksum sequence number, confirmation response, time-out retransmission, connection management, and window sliding. The latter is a connectionless transport layer protocol in the OSI reference model, which is mainly used for data that does not require data In the transmission of packets arriving in sequence, the checking and sorting of the packet transmission sequence is completed by the application layer. It provides simple and unreliable transaction-oriented transmission services. Because of its fewer control mechanisms, the delay in data transmission is small and the transmission efficiency is high. IM technology mainly combines the advantages of the two to highlight the characteristics of immediacy and accuracy of transmission, but there are still certain technical difficulties in the application of large file transmission. Through the comparative analysis of the above transmission methods and market demand, the advantages of transmission software are obtained: 1) Transmission efficiency and throughput optimization; 2) The maximum transmission speed can be set; 3) The transmission performance is proportional to the bandwidth and has nothing to do with the transmission distance, and the packet loss rate has little effect; 4) Bandwidth management function; 5) Fair sharing strategy: automatically make full use of available bandwidth resources; 6) High priority strategy: real-time dynamic allocation of priority and bandwidth; 7) Realize user and terminal authentication in a safe way; 8) Application of encryption algorithm, suitable for encryption during transmission and landing encryption; 9) Scalable management, monitoring, and control; 10) View transmission progress, performance, and bandwidth usage in real-time; 11) Detailed transmission history and log. Based on the problems and status quo that most companies are facing to transfer large files, and based on the analysis of the characteristics of the original mainstream transmission technology, the fundamental to ensure the secure transmission of large file data lies in the development of the transmission software that has the advantages described in the third party. At the same time, it can solve the current technical difficulties in transferring large files.

How to Narrow the Transfer Speed Gap in Large File Transfer?
When many people transfer files, they may have a question, why is the speed of uploading and downloading different from expected? In fact, the speed of uploading and downloading network data is not equal, which is often restricted by network bandwidth and equipment performance. Method 1: Change the network Individual users generally use the ADSL broadband network when surfing the Internet. If the uplink bandwidth is restricted by the ADSL network, the best solution is to replace the network with faster uplink bandwidth. Nowadays, fiber-to-the-home is popular all over the country. Fiber is the most ideal transfer medium in broadband networks. The advantages of fiber-optic Intern et access are exclusive bandwidth, stable performance, low cost of upgrading, no electromagnetic interference, small loss, strong security and confidentiality, and long transfer distance. Method 2: Adjust the device The first situation is that some companies will restrict employees' access to the Internet for security management and information control, and some restricted ports will affect the speed of receiving documents. Another possibility is that the router or firewall of the company has made res trictions. In the face of the above two situations, it is recommended that you consult the company's network administrator whether you can adjust the restrictions. Method 3: Clear the process If neither of the above points is true and it is temporarily slowing down, you can check the bandwidth pressure of the server. Check the server to see the current network traffic, whether there are too many requests for uploading files, resulting in too many processes, too much pressure on the server, and slow response. This is to try to pause or clean up some processes first and carry out transfer tasks in the queue. Method 4: Raysync Large File Transfer If the above method can't solve your problem well, we can recommend a large file transfer software - Raysync. Especially for an enterprise or team, large file transfer, transnational file transfer, and file transfer speed have a great influence on the data value. With the development of society, the requirements for the transfer speed of large files are getting higher and higher. Raysync is easy to use and has high performance, which can easily solve the problem of TB-level large files and massive small files. The following is the specific troubleshooting method given when there is a gap between the uploading and downloading speeds and the expected ones in the actual file transfer. Client check: 1. Test the external network bandwidth, and recommend to use speedtest to detect the local upload and download bandwidth, and check whether the speed has reached the speed bandwidth limit; 2. Confirm whether the telecom operator of the client is consistent with the telecom operator of the server. Server check: 1. Enter the background of the corresponding server to check whether the Raysync license is activated and whether the bandwidth in the license information is the expected bandwidth; 2. Check the current network volume in the server to confirm whether there are more users and other users have occupied the bandwidth of the server; 3. Check whether the disk read-write rate of the server has reached the peak, and confirm whether other users of the server are reading and writing files, which affects the file read-write storage of other users. For more problems and services of data transfer, large file transfer, transnational file transfer, massive small file transfer, file synchronization and file management, please consult support@raysync.io for more details.
