What's the difference between eTransmittal and FTP?


FTP ("file transfer protocol") is the old-fashioned method for transferring large documents over the Internet. This method is cumbersome, slow, not particularly secure, and usually requires special FTP software that is not always particularly user-friendly. FTP is a rudimentary protocol that offers no organization or work flow. eTransmittal is an FTP alternative that is faster, easier to use, requires only a browser and an Internet connection, and provides multi-layered security as well as accurate delivery records, delivery confirmation and other document management features, eliminating much of the guesswork associated with the transfer of large files.

Essentially, eTransmittal offers a user-friendly interface, document management features and multi-layered security that FTP programs lack.
