2021 File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used for the transfer of computer files between a client and server on a computer network. This allows submission of computer files to be transferred over the State of Missouri’s secure network, rather than sending files over the internet via email or sending documents through paper mail. 

Benefits of FTP

As the Original Assessment Section incorporates FTP into daily business practices, we will achieve a more secure method of file transfer, while reducing time spent on sending, receiving, and sorting emails and paper mail and eliminating document printing costs.  Additional benefits from utilizing FTP include automated tracking, dating, and archiving features.  As a benefit to the company, FTP gives users the option to upload single files individually or to zip multiple files into a single zip file, allowing all documents to be sent at the same time verses sending several emails with multiple attachments. Boosting electronic transfers together using the FTP features, is a way to increase processing efficiencies by making documents available to multiple users and enabling a more effective communications network.
