Eliminate your FTP servers and use Box as your FTP replacement

Box across all devices

A Secure FTP Alternative

Just like CD players and fax machines, FTP servers are bulky and outdated. They’re difficult for employees to use and time consuming for IT to manage. And the lack of security controls and ongoing maintenance and hardware costs make it insecure and impractical as your business grows. Leave the past behind with Box—the secure alternative to FTP.
