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.

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.

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 Narrow the Transfer Speed Gap in Large File Transfer?
When many people transfer files, they may have a question, why is the speed of uploading and downloading different from expected? In fact, the speed of uploading and downloading network data is not equal, which is often restricted by network bandwidth and equipment performance. Method 1: Change the network Individual users generally use the ADSL broadband network when surfing the Internet. If the uplink bandwidth is restricted by the ADSL network, the best solution is to replace the network with faster uplink bandwidth. Nowadays, fiber-to-the-home is popular all over the country. Fiber is the most ideal transfer medium in broadband networks. The advantages of fiber-optic Intern et access are exclusive bandwidth, stable performance, low cost of upgrading, no electromagnetic interference, small loss, strong security and confidentiality, and long transfer distance. Method 2: Adjust the device The first situation is that some companies will restrict employees' access to the Internet for security management and information control, and some restricted ports will affect the speed of receiving documents. Another possibility is that the router or firewall of the company has made res trictions. In the face of the above two situations, it is recommended that you consult the company's network administrator whether you can adjust the restrictions. Method 3: Clear the process If neither of the above points is true and it is temporarily slowing down, you can check the bandwidth pressure of the server. Check the server to see the current network traffic, whether there are too many requests for uploading files, resulting in too many processes, too much pressure on the server, and slow response. This is to try to pause or clean up some processes first and carry out transfer tasks in the queue. Method 4: Raysync Large File Transfer If the above method can't solve your problem well, we can recommend a large file transfer software - Raysync. Especially for an enterprise or team, large file transfer, transnational file transfer, and file transfer speed have a great influence on the data value. With the development of society, the requirements for the transfer speed of large files are getting higher and higher. Raysync is easy to use and has high performance, which can easily solve the problem of TB-level large files and massive small files. The following is the specific troubleshooting method given when there is a gap between the uploading and downloading speeds and the expected ones in the actual file transfer. Client check: 1. Test the external network bandwidth, and recommend to use speedtest to detect the local upload and download bandwidth, and check whether the speed has reached the speed bandwidth limit; 2. Confirm whether the telecom operator of the client is consistent with the telecom operator of the server. Server check: 1. Enter the background of the corresponding server to check whether the Raysync license is activated and whether the bandwidth in the license information is the expected bandwidth; 2. Check the current network volume in the server to confirm whether there are more users and other users have occupied the bandwidth of the server; 3. Check whether the disk read-write rate of the server has reached the peak, and confirm whether other users of the server are reading and writing files, which affects the file read-write storage of other users.

About the File Transfer Protocol, How Much Do You Know?
Before choosing a secure file transfer solution for an enterprise, it is best to have a basic understanding of the transfer protocols involved: 1.FTP FTP is a very primitive file transfer protocol, which has been popular for decades. FTP uses two separate channels to exchange data, "command channel" to verify user identity and "data channel" to transmit files, but both channels are unencrypted, and any data sent on the channels can be easily utilized. 2. FTPS FTPS is a secure file transfer protocol, which allows you to securely transfer files with your trading partners and customers. File transfer can be authenticated by methods supported by FTPS, such as client certificate, server certificate, and password. 3. SFTP SFTP stands for FTP over SSH . It is a secure FTP protocol and a good alternative to insecure FTP tools. SFTP exchanges data through SSH connection, and provides organizations with high protection for file transfer shared among their systems, trading partners, employees, and the cloud. 4. http&HTTPS Http is the basis of data communication. It defines the message format of communication between the Web browser and Web server and defines how Web browser should respond to Web requests. HTTP uses TCP transfer control protocol as the underlying transmission, which is a stateless protocol, which means that each command is executed independently, and the receiver does not keep the session information. Https is a secure version of HTTP, in which communication is encrypted by TLS or SSL. 5. AS2, AS3, and AS4 AS2, AS3, and AS4 are popular protocols used to send and protect key file transfers. AS2 is used to transmit sensitive data safely and reliably on the network. AS2 uses digital certificates and encryption standards to protect key information transmitted between systems, networks, and locations. AS2 messages can be compressed, signed, encrypted, and sent through a secure SSL tunnel. AS3 is a standard that can be used to transfer almost any file type. It provides security protection for data transmission through digital signature and data encryption. Originally, AS3 was created for transmitting data files, such as XML and EDI business-to-enterprise data files. Unlike AS2, AS2 is a defined transport protocol, and AS3 is a message standard, which focuses on how to format messages when sending from server to server. Once the AS3 message is synthesized, it can be transmitted through any other protocol . AS4 is a protocol that allows enterprises to exchange data securely with their partners. Its predecessor was AS2, but it improved delivery notice based on AS2. As a business-to-business standard, AS4 makes it safe and simple to exchange files online. 6. MFT Managed File Transfer Protocol MFT integrates the advantages of these protocols to help users solve various file transfer problems and improve enterprise efficiency. Raysync is dedicated to meeting the data transfer needs of internal or external partners of enterprises, providing efficient and controllable accelerated transfer of large files, ultra-long-distance, transnational network data transfer, safe outgoing of file assets, file management and organization authority management, supporting local deployment and cloud services, and providing enterprises with safe, stable, efficient and convenient technical support and services for large file interaction.
