Thank you for accepting our interview! Would you briefly introduce yourself? Mario: My name is Mario, I’m a chief IT manager of O2 Pós in Brazil. And we have finding over internet some software to improve our FTP client to send you some data for our client, and we tested Raysync and it was very good. Raysync: Could you share with us your use case in data transfer? Mario: We have a small client that we need to send the data, the videos to them and we were using another large file transfer solution. We have a playback video that’s okay but the speed of the transmission is not so good. And Raysync it's very fast and best than the other large file transfer solutions. In a little over four months of Raysync usage, O2 has already transferred about 26 advertisement and entertainment projects. The transfer time had a considerable improvement. Uploading files that used to take 2h to 3h, now take between 20 to 40 minutes with Raysync, greatly improving our workflow with major players such as Netflix, Amazon, and HBO. Raysync: May us know currently how big is the transfer volume in your post-production project? Mario: About five terabytes. Raysync: The collaboration between and across the teams is important in post-production, could you please elaborate on how your team achieves high-efficient collaboration? Mario: Basically communication. On a weekly basis, we send for O2 Play, our film distribution division, Masters, Trailers, Artwork and Extras. The content we send is usually heavier and the migration to Raysync was essential in terms of file transfer speed. Another entertainment project that was one of the first featuring Raysync was the Gramado Film Festival, and the experience with receiving and uploading movies files was great in terms of organization, user creation, and speed as well. Some works of O2 Pós Some Has to Die Invisible City Raysync: Is it possible to know which projects are use Raysync for data transfer?

Raysync is designed with multiple security protection based on the account number and password of the user. Specific security design is as follows: Account protection security design - Login authentication has a built-in anti-violence cracking mechanism, if the user enters the wrong password five times within 3 minutes, the account will be automatically locked. - Session identification in login is generated by using the interface of OpenSSL high-strength random function RAND_bytes to prevent random information from being hit by the simulator. Password protection security design - In the transfer process, the user password is encrypted by the asymmetric high-strength encryption algorithm, and even if the transfer message is intercepted, the attacker can not recover the plaintext through ciphertext. - The information stored in the database of the user password is irreversibly encrypted 10,000 times in one direction by using the PBKDF2 algorithm and the user's individual random salt. Even if the database information is leaked, the user password cannot be reversed through ciphertext. - The password must be a combination of case, number and special symbols, and the length is greater than or equal to 8 characters. - The system provides a weak password dictionary. Users can customize weak passwords that meet the password strength but are easy to be cracked by social engineering. System users are prohibited from using such passwords, such as @123.

On July 10th, 2020, Raysync has released a new version named V188.8.131.52. This file transfer upgrade not only improves the visual experience of the whole file transfer software, but also adds a lot of practical functions, and gives enterprise users four surprises in technical support. The following describes some update functions of the V184.108.40.206 version: 1. Optimization on the UI. The new version optimizes the effect presentation and plate position of all pages of the management console, and the lightweight design makes the interface simpler and the user's visual experience better. 2. Supports 4 types of transfer protocol configuration, that facilitates the users’ various needs: 1.Automatically select UDP/TCP: Support setting when UDP transfer delay is less than milliseconds, automatically switch to TCP; 2. Only UDP transfer: Only use UDP transfer; 3. Only TCP transfer; 4. System default: UDP transfer is preferred by default, and automatically switch to TCP transfer when the transfer is interrupted. 3. Two-way synchronization mode makes backup more flexible, simple and detailed, which avoids missing files in the backup process and releases the hands of manual copying. Two-way synchronization tasks are carried out in sequence, from client to server upload synchronization, to download server to client download synchronization. 4. Support Raysync download verification to ensure file integrity. When downloading a file, if there is a file with the same name in the download directory, it will be compared with the file on the server, and the server will only send different data for downloading to ensure file integrity. 5. Add "External Http Authentication" for third-party authentication. 6. Add the "Import" button for LDAP authentication. After configuring LDAP/AD domain information in "third-party authentication" of the management console, users can import accounts in the LDAP/AD domain to the Raysync server. 7. Support setting forbidden access path in account home directory. Note the path filling rule: root directory. In addition to the above functions, in view of the special needs of some enterprises, we have also made more support for transferring command lines, which is more convenient for technicians to operate. 8. The transfer command line supports wildcards to upload/download files. For example, if the file starting with D1D052 in the local D:\openssl folder is uploaded to the root directory of the server, then the command line is rayfile-c.exe -a 192.168.186.137 -p 32001 -u test -w Raysync@123 -o upload -d / -s d:/openssl/ -reg ^D1D052.*$ 9. The transfer command line supports moving a single folder or file, such as moving the server \openssl\01 folder to the root directory, then the command line is rayfile-c.exe -a 192.168.186.137 -p 32001 -u test -w Raysync@123 -o move -s /openssl/01 -d /01 The transfer command line supports moving multiple folders or files, such as moving the server \openssl\01 \openssl\02 folder to the root directory, then the command line is rayfile-c.exe -a 192.168.186.137 -p 32001 -u test -w Raysync@123 -o move -s /openssl/01 -s /openssl/02 -d / 10. The transfer command line supports copying a single folder or file, such as copying the server \openssl\01 folder to the root directory, then the command line is rayfile-c.exe -a 192.168.186.137 -p 32001 -u test -w Raysync@123 -o copy -s /openssl/01 -d /01 The transfer command line supports copying multiple folders or files, such as copying the server \openssl\01 \openssl\02 folder to the root directory, then the command line is rayfile-c.exe -a 192.168.186.137 -p 32001 -u test -w Raysync@123 -o copy -s /openssl/01 -s /openssl/02 -d / 11. The transfer command line supports specifying the modification target file name, such as uploading the local D:\openssl\abc.jpg file to the root directory of the server and modifying the abc.jpg as ddd.jpg rayfile-c.exe -a 192.168.186.137 -P 32001 -u test -w Raysync@123 -o upload -s d:/openssl/abc.jpg -d / -t ddd.jpg
