In the post, Jason writes: “I have used WS_FTP for quite some years and seen the product develop into the essential application it is today. Today, the file transfer utility supports Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, and Windows 7 and it has adopted the familiar Windows look and feel.”
SC Magazine just published an article with an interview with Frank Kenney, VP of Global Strategy.Â He recently spoke in London at a press conference for InfoSecurity Europe, Europeâ€™s leading information security event which took place on April 27-29, 2010.
A basic theme of the interview addresses the FTP market andÂ the growing number ofÂ files sent back and forth in business environments.
From the article: “Referring to Gartner statistics, Kenney said that the market is growing in FTP, and two million MP3s are moved via email systems every four weeks.
He said: â€œFrom the iPhone and iGoogle portal pages to web mail and file-sharing websites to USB drives, corporate IT has to manage and control both sanctioned and ad-hoc applications, processes and systems.”
