Today's data-driven world is demanding, requiring accuracy, speed, integrity, and most importantly safety. This is a daunting task. In the past, many organizations have relied heavily on the old version of the file transfer protocol to transfer files. But over time, FTP alternatives have become necessary because the security of this method has been tested by hackers. FTP alternatives include SFTP, HTTPS, AS2, and MFT. For example, in 2001, a serious breach occurred at Yale University, when more than 43,000 user IDs were exposed and all data was carefully collected from the FTP server. In the same year, Acer's customer details were stolen similarly. Recently, credentials for 7,000 FTP sites have been distributed in underground forums, including the FTP server run by The New York Times. Security and file transfer are important issues for IT security professionals, but what is the best way to protect company data? Take advantage of more secure options. As many organizations gradually move beyond traditional FTP, they have chosen modern and secure FTP alternatives to transfer data, including: 1.SFTP SFTP is also known as FTP over SSH. It uses a secure channel between computer systems to prevent unauthorized disclosure during the transaction process, thereby reducing the risk in the data exchange process. The authentication of the SFTP connection involves user ID and password, SSH key, or both. It is also firewall-friendly and only needs to open a port number. 2.HTTPS Many sites tend to use HTTPS instead of traditional HTTP, but what are the main differences? First of all, traditional HTTP does not encrypt browser traffic, which brings security risks. In contrast, HTTPS uses Transport Layer Security to provide an additional layer of encryption. This will create a secure channel, so the integrity of the data will not be changed without your knowledge. HTTPS is very suitable for file transfer, where trading partners need a simple browser-based interface to upload data. 3.AS2 This is a popular method to safely and reliably transmit EDI data over the Internet. AS2 generates an "envelope" for data, allowing it to be sent using digital certificates and encryption. For example, Wal-Mart is widely known for its use of EDI through AS2 and has played an important role in driving adoption in the retail industry. 4.MFT The way to support the above options and make FTP more secure is Managed File Transfer . This security option simplifies the data exchange between the system, employees, and customers. It supports multiple protocols and encryption standards, and MFT provides a wide range of security functions that can meet strict security policies to comply with PCI DSS, HIPAA, GLBA, and other regulatory requirements. The MFT solution provides advanced authentication and data encryption to provide safe and reliable file transfer. You can also track user visits and transfer activities through the reporting function. More importantly, managed file transfer can solve other problems or troubles you may encounter, including the need for automatic file encryption, workflow and project automation, file transfer monitoring and notification, and third-party suppliers and trading partners The need to share files easily and securely. In general, managed file transfer provides the best choice. It is a secure FTP alternative to quickly and effectively manage data transfers through detailed audit records. It is preventive, not reactive, which is most needed by security experts in today's environment. It is supported on many platforms , cloud , and hybrid environments), so you can safely transfer files anytime, anywhere.

As a solution provider for large file transmission, Raysync has a self-developed ultra-high-speed transmission protocol, which can easily meet the extremely fast transmission requirements of TB-level large files and massive small files, and provide professional large file transmission and transmission management services for major enterprises. What designs have been made for file storage in Raysync? What storage methods does Raysync support at present? Today we give answers to these two questions. Let's first clarify the three concepts of object storage, file storage, and block storage: Object storage: A strategy of managing and manipulating data storage as different units . These objects are stored in a separate warehouse and are not affected by files in other folders. Get each piece of data and designate it as an object. The data is stored in a separate warehouse, instead of a file in a folder, and is bound with the associated metadata and unique identifier to form a storage pool. File storage: Data is stored as a piece of information in a folder to help organize data among other data. This is also called layered storage, which imitates the storage mode of paper documents. When you need to access data, your computer system needs to know the path to find data. Block storage: Split a file into individual data blocks, and then store these blocks as separate data. Each piece of data has a different address, so there is no need to store them in a file structure. Among the above three storages, object storage adds comprehensive metadata to files, eliminates the hierarchical file structure used in file storage, and places all contents in a flat address space called a storage pool. Object storage has no archive hierarchy, and the source data is completely customizable, so compared with file or block storage, the restrictions are much less and the resources are optimized; At the same time, data can be added forever, and unlimited scalability greatly reduces the storage cost of data; Faster data retrieval and better data analysis promote the wide application of object storage. The use case of the object storage: Providing rich media: Define workflow by using industry-leading solutions to manage unstructured data. Reduce the cost of rich media distributed globally. Managing distributed content: Optimizing the value of data throughout its life cycle and providing competitive storage services. Embrace the Internet of Things : Effectively manage machine-to-machine data, support artificial intelligence and analysis, and reduce the cost and time of the design process. Storage methods supported by Raysync: As an enterprise-level large file transmission software, Raysync has provided high-performance, safe, and stable large file transmission and transmission management services for 2W+ enterprises in IT, finance, film and television, biological genes, manufacturing, and many other fields. As shown in the above table, Raysync has a powerful file storage function, supports more than ten mainstream object storage services, and can meet the diverse storage needs of enterprises.

The new energy industry is developing rapidly. New energy electric vehicles, solar appliances, wind energy, ocean energy, biomass energy, nuclear fusion energy, etc. The development of the new energy industry is conducive to the optimization and upgrading of chemical enterprises, accelerating the development of science and technology, and emerging more and more world-class chemical enterprises. Most of these multinational chemical enterprises adopt a globally integrated management mode, distributing raw materials, R&D, production, and sales links around the world according to the advantages of different regions. All branches need to keep close contact, and transnational large file transmission plays an important role in it. However, the process of transnational large file transmission will be affected by many unknown factors, such as transmission interruption and transmission error. If the data leakage and business loss of the enterprise are caused by the imperfect file transmission mode, it will cause immeasurable losses to the enterprise. Solving the problem of transnational large file transmission and ensuring the efficient, safe, and complete transmission of data to the destination is the top priority of business development. 1. High-speed and Stable Raysync Transnational Large File Transfer On the premise of 100Mbps network bandwidth, 10GB files will be transmitted from Beijing to Beijing, Nanjing, and the United States respectively. 10GB files were distributed from Beijing to Beijing, Nanjing, and the United States by using Raysync. The transmission distance was from near to far, and the average upload and download speed were 12.26MB/s, and the longest transmission time was 849s. It takes only 15 minutes to upload or download 10GB of files from China to the United States. 2. Multi-platform Supported and High Performance Index Performance indicators: - The transport connection between a single client and server supports 1Gbps. - 10Gbps is supported by a single server. - Through load balancing, it can support up to 10Gbps. Adopting the patented high-speed transmission protocol, in the LAN environment with low latency and no packet loss, the system will automatically choose TCP for transmission, and on the Internet with high latency and packet loss, the system will automatically choose UDP for transmission. It can automatically adjust the transmission speed to the optimal state in the face of any network latency and packet loss.
A safe transmission tool generally needs the following safety design: 01. Web security design - User-side Web Portal and management-side Web Portal support access IP address isolation and port isolation; - The administrator can disable the user plane Web Portal or the management plane web portal as required. - Support HTTP and HTTPS, the administrator can disable HTTP and only provide Https service; - For the logged-in Web page, the session valid range is only valid for the currently accessed page, completely eliminating CSRF cross-site attack; Before each version is released, Huawei Cloud Online Professional Web Vulnerability Scanning Service is used to scan vulnerabilities and repair the latest released vulnerabilities in time; - Https TLS only opens the encryption algorithm suite that is recognized as safe in the industry. 02. Account & Password Protection Security Design - Login authentication has a built-in anti-violence cracking mechanism, and the user enters the wrong password five times in a row within 3 minutes, and the account will be automatically locked. - Session identification in login is generated by using the interface of OpenSSL high-strength random function RAND_bytes to prevent random information from being hit by the simulator. 03. Transmission security design - In the transmission process, Raysync is protected by Hash verification at the transmission message level, file block, and the whole file to ensure the integrity of the transmission content. - TLS 1.3 is used for end-to-end encryption between the Raysync client and the Raysync server to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks in the network. - Raysync only needs to expose one port to the outside, which can meet all users' access and greatly reduce the risk of firewall port exposure. Whether transmitting large files, scheduling many small files in batches, or sending individual files as needed, it is very important to choose safe file transmission software.
Enterprises rely on safe and reliable information access methods to meet today's rapidly developing market demand. Accordingly, sharing data internally and externally is essential for any organization. File Transfer Protocol FTP is one of the earliest and still used data sharing methods. Although IT teams and business users are familiar with this, FTP lacks much vital security, compliance, and workflow requirements in modern organizations, especially in data security. The following are four different FTP vulnerabilities attacked by hackers: 1. Anonymous authentication Anonymous authentication is an FTP vulnerability, which allows users to use FTP username or log in anonymously. In many cases, users will provide their email address as a password. However, the user's login credentials and the commands used are unencrypted, visible, and easy to access. At the same time, any data sent via FTP or hosted on an anonymous FTP server will not be protected. Once, the FBI found that hackers actively used FTP to target medical and dental industries and access protected health information. 2. Directory traversal attack Directory traversal attack is another FTP vulnerability, and its successful attack will overwrite or create unauthorized files, which are stored outside the Webroot folder. In turn, the original FTP owner is subject to the permission of files or directories and the control of hackers. 3. Cross-site scripting When attackers use Web applications to send malicious code, XSS attacks are usually sent to end-users in the form of browser-side scripts. Defects that allow attacks to succeed are very common and may occur anywhere where user input is used without verification or coding in the output generated by Web applications. Attackers can use XXS to send malicious scripts to unsuspecting users. The end user's browser cannot know that the script is not trusted and execute the script. Because the malicious script thinks that the script comes from a trusted source, it can access any data, session token, or other sensitive information stored on the user's local terminal that is reserved by the browser and used with the site. 4. Malware attack based on Dridex It was discovered for the first time in 2014 that Dridex malware has been re-invented and introduced in unexpected ways after the UK became the target of bank attacks. Internet users targeted by Dridex malware will open Word or Excel email attachments, which will cause macros to download the malware and infect computers, thus exposing users to bank theft. In the latest version of Dridex malware, hackers use FTP sites and credentials to avoid being detected by e-mail gateway and network policy of trusted FTP. Updating FTP credentials regularly can help prevent Dridex-based attacks. As far as the FTP server itself is concerned, it can no longer meet the system functions required by the big data business in the information age. From the point of view of security, transfer efficiency, and compliance, the FTP server itself cannot be expanded and it is very likely to bring high-cost loss. In the big data market, big file transfer software came into being and was promised to meet the above business requirements. Large file transfer technology provides higher control and security than FTP, which usually has the following features: - In-depth report - The global visibility of all data transfer activities - End-to-end security, encrypting data in transit and at rest - Performance indicators, monitoring, and support for compliance requirements - Workflow automation Raysync- large file transfer software High performance Raysync high-speed transfer protocol, the bandwidth utilization rate is over 96%, the transfer rate is increased by 100X, and TB-level large files and massive small files are easily transmitted. High security TLS+AES-356 encryption technology and built-in multiple firewalls make the enterprise data security network impenetrable. Highly available Support mainstream servers and desktop operating systems, support various storage devices and cloud service models and maintain high integration with enterprise business systems. Low cost Pay as you go: Effectively meet the needs of low-frequency large file transfer and eliminate resource waste; Pro: GB, TB, PB global high-speed circulation, no need to wait, small and medium-sized team's selected transfer software; Enterprise: 4-layer load balancing, multi-server, and database fast docking, unlimited users enjoy high-speed transfer; Strict control Global central control, transfer log live monitoring data information, enterprise core business data visible, controllable, and traceable.

As the head brand of enterprise-level large file transfer, Raysync has provided high-performance, stable, and secure data transfer services for 2W+ enterprises in IT, finance, film and television, biological genes, manufacturing, and many other fields. In some cases, a large file transfer platform can be used together with FTP in the process of transition to safer and more effective information flow .
More and more enterprises gradually realize that the amount of data generated by enterprises is increasing year by year, especially for enterprises with overseas business, which have customers in Japan, India, the United States, Southeast Asia, and other places. It is very difficult to transmit these data to the mainland for computing services. The amount of data is too large, and the amount of data contained in a project ranges from several hundred GB to several hundred TB. In terms of network transmission, the bandwidth utilization rate of transnational large file transmission is very low, because the current network transmission protocol is TCP transmission protocol, which is a stable and reliable transmission protocol. It is necessary to ensure that the data is transmitted without packet loss and the file is intact. Therefore, when the latency and packet loss appear together, it will choose to reduce the speed to ensure the quality. The farther the transmission distance is, the greater the probability of latency and packet loss. Therefore, in order to reduce the packet loss and ensure transmission quality and stability, the speed will be reduced. Raysync solves the problem of file transmission. Under the condition of high latency and packet loss, Raysync can improve the packet rate through self-developed protocols, control the congestion on the network, improve the transmission efficiency, and ensure the reliability and stability of the transmitted data. The bandwidth of Shenzhen is 100 megabytes, and files are transmitted from Shenzhen to Los Angeles, USA. Without Raysync, the bandwidth speed of 100 megabytes can only be less than 1 megabyte . If Raysync velocity is used at both ends, it can reach 92 megahertz. Raysync abandons the original TCP protocol during transmission, and takes over data packets and traffic packets through its own transmission protocol, thus improving transmission efficiency. As an expert in the field of large file transfer, Raysync will build an interactive bridge for the Internet, big data, artificial intelligence, and the real economy based on the self-develop high-speed transfer protocol.
With the explosive growth of data, the software of accelerating file transmission was born. However, how to ensure the security of file transmission in the face of the mixed file transmission software in the market? How to set the security of transnational transmission? In view of the above problems, the accelerated transmission software-Raysync will explain its six important security settings in detail, hoping to help more enterprises better identify the file transmission accelerated software. The following is the schematic diagram of Raysync product architecture: From the product architecture diagram, it can be seen that the file transfer acceleration process of Raysync software is not complicated, mainly based on the self-developed Raysync high-speed transmission protocol, which realizes the file transfer acceleration. Will safety design be so simple? In fact, security is a topic that enterprise data assets always pay attention to. In the security design, every step of the user's operation and every click may bury potential safety hazards. The Raysync has been designed safely from six aspects: 1. Web security design 2. Account & password protection security design 3. Transmission security design 4. Software installation & operation security design 5. Behavioral audit 6. Encryption certificate life cycle management
