How to Speed up the Global Transfer for Film Productions?
According to the data collected by Box Office Mojo, film industry are facing enormous crisis in front of COVID-19, not just because of the nearly empty cinemas, but also the way the whole industry works. When the crisis hit, they have to learn to attend events virtually and cooperate remotely, resulting in many new problems in team collaboration and data exchange, etc. On BaM live which was held by IABM on 22nd September, 2021, Raysync was excited to have Ben Cheung, VP of Raysync, led a discussion on how to speed up the global transfer for film productions, uncovering the impact COVID-19 has on the film industry and the importance of fast and cost-effective file transfer and its future development. In this live event, following topics are discussed: Current situation of film production What can be done to solve those problems Case studies The future of file transfer Q&A: How do you see the future of file transfer services? At the beginning of the event, Ben analyzed the current situation of film production with some infographics showing the drastic drop-down of film box office and its revenues. Besides, massive changes were made in film production environment in order to keep the staff safe. Millions went home to work and used digital technologies to continue to execute their daily tasks. That's why a fast and cost-effective data transfer solution has become more and more important in long-distance team collaboration. What can be done to solve those problems? The data volumes that need to be shared and transferred in our daily work has soared, but the traditional TCP-based transfer solution can’t help to achieve high-efficient delivery. The best alternative UDP-based file transfer solution - Raysync Among the alternative solutions to FTP, most of them are either expensive or complicated to use. Based upon Raysync UDP high-speed transfer protocol, Raysync breaks through the bottleneck of large file transfer which satisfy enterprises’ file tranfer needs by building an intelligent transfer platform that processes and moves massive data at an unprecedented speed. Raysync’s intelligent data compression technology can also effectively reduce the network loads, providing breakpoint resume and data verification to ensure stable and reliable data transfer. The intelligent management system is able to meet the business requirements of enterprises such as data sync and backup. Best of all, Raysync provides an SMB version that starts from $599/year! Actually, it does help a myriad of enterprises in accelerating data transfer, Ben also shared two successful cases in film post-production and render farm, respectively. Case 1 – Film Post-production Challenges: Most film and television productions are edited and created by people scattered among different firms and overseas institutions, in which a large amount of audio, video, images, and other content has to be uploaded and downloaded. This mass amount of data flow has led to low efficiency of file interactions, and the delay of the production cycle may seriously affect the production efficiency. Solutions: Raysync provides the specific audio-visual content transfer solution for the film post-production industry to accelerate the transfer of a massive amount of content through Raysync’s ultra-high-speed transfer protocol. Intelligently optimize the network bandwidth and effectively reduce the network latency and packet loss caused by transnational and ultra-long distance transfer. Eventually, the final result is beyond clients' expectations. Case 2 – Render Farm Challenges: In Render farm, the daily transfer volume is around 30TB every day, the maximum number of files for dingle transfer is around 2 million. In this sense, there needs a fast and secure transfer solution integrated to Render farm. Solutions: For Render farm, Cluster storage is an important solution to large-scale data storage systems. There are hundreds of transfer nodes established to take care 200K users around the world, with the help of Raysync, the Internet bandwidth goes for 50Gbps, and the peak bandwidth utilization is up to 90%. Raysync also supports all needs for integration, like SDL, GUI, CMD, and etc. In the end, Ben shared his insight on the future of file transfer, he thinks the future of file transfer would related to the following factors, deduplication, compression, 400Gbps super-bandwidth, and machine learning.

5 Easy Ways to Transfer Files Between Computers
You might think that simple operations are as simple as transferring files between computers on a home network. Unfortunately, this is not the case. On the company network, the company’s IT department usually creates a network shared drive, and anyone connected to the computer can place and exchange files over the network. On your home network, you don’t have an IT department that can do this for you. You don’t need to worry, because there are many easy ways to do this. 1. Proximity sharing: Share files in Windows 10 Before April 2018, to share files through your home network, you need to try to set up a so-called "homegroup." This is a group of computers connected to the common network group on the home network. It allows file sharing, but due to security software or network firewalls, its settings are very complicated and it does not always work properly. Microsoft is very grateful that it introduced other simpler ways to share files over the network . Sharing on the local network involves a feature called nearby sharing. You need to enable "Nearby Sharing" on all computers you want to share files with. To do this, do the following: Open the settings and click System. Choose a shared experience. Scroll down and find nearby shares. Switch the switch to on. Set the drop-down menu below it to everyone nearby. After enabling "Nearby Sharing" on all Windows 10 computers on the network, you can start sharing files with them. To do this, open FileExplorer, right-click on the share you want to share and select Share. You will now see all computers with nearby sharing enabled under the Find more people section. When you select the remote computer system, a notification will appear that there is an incoming file on another computer. Choose Save and Open or Save to start the file transfer. 2. Transfer files via email Another method of transferring files between computers, not only through the local network but also through the Internet, is to share via e-mail. The process is similar to "sharing nearby." Just right-click the file you want to transfer and select share. At the top of the "Share" window, you will see the email contacts you want to select. Click Find more people to open your email contacts, and then select from your contact list. This will open an email compose page. You can edit the email or click Send to send the file. If you have not yet used the email service of your choice, you may need to grant Windows permission to send an email on your behalf. When receiving a file via email, you can receive it on any device . 3. Transfer files via the cloud Another way to transfer files from a Windows 10 PC to other devices is through the cloud. You can achieve this by sharing files to any Windows application that supports services such as OneDrive or Google Drive. Just right-click the file you want to transfer and select share. At the bottom of the "Share" window, you will see a list of Windows applications to choose from. At least one of them should be OneDrive. After opening the application, just click the "Add" button to add the file to your OneDrive cloud account. The file will be uploaded to your OneDrive account. Once you are done, you can open the OneDrive app on another computer and upload it there. On another computer, open the OneDrive app, right-click the file, and select Download. This will complete the file transfer to another computer on the network . 4. Use FTP client/server software Another excellent solution is to use FTP as a fast file transfer via LAN. By running an FTP server on one computer, you can use the FTP client software on another computer to connect to the server through port 21. The problem with many FTP server applications is that their setup and configuration are complex. Fortunately, there are several quick and easy FTP-server applications. Is a free application Baby FTP is one of them. With BabyFTP, you only need to install the application and it will start a simple anonymous FTP server on the original computer. In "Settings", you can configure the transfer between folders and files, the operations to be allowed , and whether the remote client can modify these operations. Start the BabyFTP server, if everything is normal, you should see "FTPServer started on port 21". Now, on another computer, you can use any FTP client to open a connection with that remote computer using its IP address and port 21. This application does not require an ID or password because it only uses an anonymous connection . After connecting, you will see the remote directory that has been set up at the remote site location. You can right-click the file there to upload it to the local computer, or right-click the file on the local computer to transfer it to the remote computer. 5. Transfer files between Windows 10 computers Surprisingly, without third-party software and other solutions, simple operations like transferring files between computers will be very difficult. Thankfully, there are many options to make the process simple and easy. The Raysync large file transfer solution is committed to meeting the needs of large data transmission within the enterprise or with external partners, providing efficient and controllable accelerated transmission of large files, ultra-long-distance, transnational network data transmission, secure file asset distribution, file management, and Organize authority management, support local deployment and cloud services, and provide enterprises with secure, stable, efficient, and convenient large file interactive technical support and services.
Top 4 FTP Exploits Used Hackers and the Solutions
Enterprises rely on safe and reliable information access methods to meet today's rapidly developing market demand. Accordingly, sharing data internally and externally is essential for any organization. FTP is one of the earliest and still used data sharing methods. Although IT teams and business users are familiar with this, FTP lacks much vital security, compliance, and workflow requirements in modern organizations, especially in data security. The following are four different FTP vulnerabilities that are vulnerable to hackers: 1. Anonymous authentication Anonymous authentication is an FTP vulnerability, which allows users to use FTP username or log in anonymously. In many cases, users will provide their email address as a password. However, the user's login credentials and the commands used are unencrypted, visible, and easy to access. At the same time, any data sent via FTP or hosted on an anonymous FTP server will not be protected. Once, the FBI found that hackers actively used FTP to target medical and dental industries and access protected health information. 2. Directory traversal attack A directory traversal attack exploits insufficient security validation or sanitization of user-supplied file names, such that characters representing "traverse to parent directory" are passed through to the operating system's file system API. 3. Cross-site scripting Cross-site scripting is a type of security vulnerability that can be found in some web applications. XSS attacks enable attackers to inject client-side scripts into web pages viewed by other users. A cross-site scripting vulnerability may be used by attackers to bypass access controls such as the same-origin policy. Attackers can use XXS to send malicious scripts to unsuspecting users. The end user's browser cannot know that the script is not trusted and execute the script. Because the malicious script thinks that the script comes from a trusted source, it can access any data, session token, or other sensitive information stored on the user's local terminal that is reserved by the browser and used with the site. 4. Malware attack based on Dridex It was discovered for the first time in 2014 that Dridex malware has been re-invented and introduced in unexpected ways after the UK became the target of bank attacks. Internet users targeted by Dridex malware will open Word or Excel email attachments, which will cause macros to download the malware and infect computers, thus exposing users to bank theft. In the latest version of Dridex malware, hackers use FTP sites and credentials to avoid being detected by e-mail gateway and network policy of trusted FTP. Updating FTP credentials regularly can help prevent Dridex-based attacks. As far as the FTP server itself is concerned, it can no longer meet the system functions required by the big data business in the information age. From the point of view of security, transfer efficiency, and compliance, the FTP server itself cannot be expanded and it is very likely to bring high-cost loss. In the big data market, managed file transfer software came into being and was promised to meet the above business requirements. Large file transfer technology provides higher control and security than FTP, which usually has the following features: - In-depth report - The global visibility of all data transfer activities - End-to-end security, encrypting data in transit and at rest - Performance indicators, monitoring, and support for compliance requirements - Workflow automation Raysync - large file transfer software - Data Synchronization Supports two-way file synchronization that maintains the consistency of data across multiple devices, ensuring no redundant fragmented files are produced and multi-point data sync is efficient. - Point-to-point Transfer Adopts user ID to achieve point-to-point transfer, eliminating intermediate transfer for rapid file-sharing. - Standard Bank-Level Encryption Technology With the AES-256+SSL+Random salt high-density encryption algorithm, even the developers are unable to recover the root password through the stored ciphertext, making sure the data security is worry-free. - Audit trails Uses transfer logs and operations logs to supervise user behavior, easily trace all operations and file content, effectively control improper usage behavior and help enterprises to achieve better file management. - User-defined Management User-defined management perfectly plots out the organizational structure, supporting group management by defining regions, departments, and role-based permissions that set authority to standardize enterprise users' operation. - Intelligence Nodes Management With intelligence nodes management equipped, it supports unified management of all node machines in both the internal and external network environment to monitor and collect all operation logs and data synchronously. - Hybrid Cloud Storage Raysync supports more than 10 mainstream storage methods including hybrid storage effectively assisting enterprises to store, backup, migrate and synchronize their files in an orderly manner. As a one-stop solution provider, Raysync has independently developed its core transfer technology with its professional technical teams to offer high-performance, secure, and reliable large file transfer and file management services for major enterprises.
Security Design: Interpretation of Raysync File Transfer Acceleration Technology
With the explosive growth of data, the file transfer acceleration software was born. However, how to ensure the security of file transfer? How to ensure the security of transnational transfer? In view of the above problems, we will analyze Raysync's six important security settings in this article, hoping to help more enterprises better identify the file transfer acceleration software.

Account & password protection security design 3. Transfer security design 4. Software installation & operation security design 5. Behavioral audit 6. Encryption certificate life cycle management
Point to Point Transfer Is Now Available to Raysync V5.0.5.8
The version of Raysync V5.0.5.8 is now available! The update of this version not only makes functional upgrade and value enhancement around the details of visual experience, object storage support, user notification reminder, white list setting but also make more updates and optimizations from the high-speed file transmission, which makes the user experience more perfect. Let's focus on the point to point transfer function of Raysync. In the traditional mode of file transmission, we need to upload the file to the server for storage, then share the file in the form of links, and finally download the file by our friends. As a result, the simple file transmission is divided into three steps, which are cumbersome and costly in time. In view of this situation,Raysync has developed a point to point transfer mode, in which end-to-end transmission is directly carried out between users, and file transmission is completed in one step. Look's take a look at the detailed operation process: Step 1. The receiver logs in to the webpage, enter the "Point to Point" transfer page, and enables the option "Allow to receive direct transfer files from partners". When it is turned on, the recipient's ID and Key will be displayed on the left side of the sidebar. Copy and paste the ID and Key to user A. Step 2. Right-click the Raysync Client, select the "Settings"->"Direct transfer", then you can set the save path when receiving the file. Step 3. The sender login to the Raysync Client, click "start to transfer file" in the "Point to Point" page, then enter the Partner ID and Key of the user B to start the transfer. Then the receiver's Raysync Client will automatically start to receive the file. Step 4. After receiving, the receiver can open the local directory and view the file. In addition to the function of point to point transfer, Raysync V5.0.5.8 has other functions optimized and updated, such as: 1) The object storage function in admin condole supports Microsoft Azure blob. 2) The admin console adds an administrator notification function, which may send notifications to the user's webpage and also supports sending notifications to the user's mailbox. 3) Email notification signature supports customization.
How to Ensure the Safe Transmission of Large File Data?
At present, the amount of file-type data in enterprises has increased sharply, and many enterprises usually use conventional methods such as email, IM tools, FTP, and network disks for file transfer. When the file capacity increases and the network environment deteriorates, the efficiency of file transmission and data exchange is low, and the security is poor. If the file is larger, usually a lower method such as express hard disk is used, which cannot meet the requirements of enterprises to obtain files in time. Seriously affect the overall operating efficiency of the enterprise. Besides, the use of the above-mentioned traditional transmission methods is too decentralized, which is not conducive to centralized management of enterprises. In the era of cloud computing, enterprises currently have more and more service nodes and storage nodes, and data flow requirements based on business processes and hybrid cloud architecture are also increasing. The lack of an effective file transfer management platform is undoubtedly a major pain point. So what transfer methods do companies generally use to transfer large files? 1. CDN Technology CDN: Content Delivery Network . By adding a new network architecture to the existing network, it is mainly composed of two parts, divided into two parts: the center and the edge. The center refers to the CDN network management center and the DNS redirection resolution center, which is responsible for global load balancing, and the equipment system is installed in the management Central computer room, edge mainly refers to remote nodes, the carrier of CDN distribution, mainly composed of Cache and load balancer. Choose to publish the content of the site to the "edge" of the network closest to the user, so that the user can obtain the desired content nearby, thereby improving the response speed of the user to the site to a certain extent. The data requirements of CDN are only independent documents or "independently replaceable" document parts. 2. Transmission Technology Based on FTP Protocol FTP ) is the abbreviation of the File Transfer Protocol. FTP allows files to be shared between hosts and is used to control the two-way transmission of files on the Internet. It is a C/S system. FTP uses different port numbers to transfer different content, and different TCP connections are established. First, use TCP to generate a virtual connection for transmitting control information, and then generate another connection for data transmission. Combined with the FTP protocol, it can use file or file , file verification, and other technologies, and can also transfer large files. FTP transfer software such as also can manage users, block or filter designated IP addresses, Port, control user upload and download speed, detailed transmission history, and log, and can also carry out an encrypted transmission of data. It has the advantage of ensuring transmission security and protecting personal privacy. 3. Transfer Files Based on Middleware Use MQ, MT, and other middleware to transfer files, with data compression, large file transfer, and breakpoint resumable transfer. The transfer of large files uses BlobMessage, which uses fileserver to transfer efficient processing. Message middleware technology has two core functions: asynchronous and decoupling. These two core functions improve the working efficiency of the application system as a whole, enhance the usability, stability, and scalability of the system, and can realize the safe and reliable transmission of large files. 4. IM Instant Messaging Technology Most of the Instant Messenger technology is based on TCP/IP and UDP for communication, while TCP/IP and UDP are communication transmission protocols based on the lower-level IP protocol. The former is through the form of a data stream, after dividing and packaging the transmitted large file data, through the virtual-circuit connection established between the machines, a continuous, two-way transmission protocol that strictly guarantees the correctness of the data is carried out, mainly Reliable transmission is achieved through mechanisms such as checksum sequence number, confirmation response, time-out retransmission, connection management, and window sliding. The latter is a connectionless transport layer protocol in the OSI reference model, which is mainly used for data that does not require data In the transmission of packets arriving in sequence, the checking and sorting of the packet transmission sequence is completed by the application layer. It provides simple and unreliable transaction-oriented transmission services. Because of its fewer control mechanisms, the delay in data transmission is small and the transmission efficiency is high. IM technology mainly combines the advantages of the two to highlight the characteristics of immediacy and accuracy of transmission, but there are still certain technical difficulties in the application of large file transmission. Through the comparative analysis of the above transmission methods and market demand, the advantages of transmission software are obtained: 1) Transmission efficiency and throughput optimization; 2) The maximum transmission speed can be set; 3) The transmission performance is proportional to the bandwidth and has nothing to do with the transmission distance, and the packet loss rate has little effect; 4) Bandwidth management function; 5) Fair sharing strategy: automatically make full use of available bandwidth resources; 6) High priority strategy: real-time dynamic allocation of priority and bandwidth; 7) Realize user and terminal authentication in a safe way; 8) Application of encryption algorithm, suitable for encryption during transmission and landing encryption; 9) Scalable management, monitoring, and control; 10) View transmission progress, performance, and bandwidth usage in real-time; 11) Detailed transmission history and log. Based on the problems and status quo that most companies are facing to transfer large files, and based on the analysis of the characteristics of the original mainstream transmission technology, the fundamental to ensure the secure transmission of large file data lies in the development of the transmission software that has the advantages described in the third party. At the same time, it can solve the current technical difficulties in transferring large files.
