This FTP paper focuses on the limitations of traditional FTP and how these limitations have been addressed by Hermstedt StingRay to meet the requirements of modern day enterprises.

Bournemouth, United Kingdom, July 24, 2009 --( Pro2col Ltd have today announced the release of a new white paper entitled "Common FTP server problems and how they are addressed when using the StingRay file transfer server". This paper discusses issues relating to the use of traditional FTP solutions in a business environment. These issues are then compared to the FTP functionality offered by Hermstedt StingRay, a multi-protocol managed file transfer solution.

This FTP white paper acknowledges the wide spread use of traditional FTP solutions in today’s corporate marketplace, despite the downfalls associated with this file transfer protocol such as lack of security and automation. Hermstedt StingRay’s enhanced FTP features address the problems faced when using traditional FTP solutions, allowing organisations to use their preferred file transfer protocol without compromising business processes and productivity.

James Lewis, Managing Director of Pro2col commented, “StingRay takes standard FTP and provides users with enhanced features such as automation, notification and auditing in the same way as other managed file transfer solutions do. FTP will have its place in enterprise file transfer for some time to come and StingRay aims to make it easier for IT Administrators to deploy and manage.”
