This is why we rely on the combination of FTP and our Br24 online tool when it comes to transmitting data. For a quick, easy and secure data exchange. Because when it comes to transmitting large amounts of data over the Internet, FTP offers many advantages.


What is FTP?

FTP stands for “File Transfer Protocol”. This technology has been specially developed to transfer data quickly from a so called FTP client (e.g. a local computer) to a FTP server (a web server) and vice versa. Through an access, the FTP client can upload data to the FTP server or download data from the server. During the connection FTP sort of ensures that there is a thick line available for the file upload and download. Exactly what we need for our daily work.

And even if the connection terminates during the transfer, the progress of the transfer is not lost. As soon as the connection is re-established, the transfer starts exactly where it stopped.
