File transfer apps
MediaFire Are Cheaper Than Us, And It Shows
MediaFire has some of the lowest prices on the market, and when you look at what they offer, you understand why. A bare-bones cloud based file transfer solution that suffices if all you want is some online storage, and to send files with no regards for speed, security and compliance.
These are not the only limitations with MediaFire. It is woefully lacking in features that are imperative where file storage and file sharing of multiple files, is part of a business's workflow.
Both MediaFire and Filemail offer mobile apps for iPhone or iPad, and for Android. However, Filemail also offer dedicated desktop apps for Macs and Windows, with UDP transfer acceleration.
MediaFire doesn't encrypt any files that you upload and share, which in this day and age, is asking for trouble. The only protection of your files offered by MediaFire is password protection. On the other hand our file sharing service offers anti-virus, data encryption and password protection.
When it comes to sending very large files with MediaFire, you can't. You can only send a file of up to 50 GB maximum. Professionals and businesses in many fields work with huge files, so MediaFire isn't an option. With our file hosting service you can send a file of any size.
With MediaFire you can't control traffic. Coupled with the lack of data encryption, lack of detailed activity and delivery tracking, means that MediaFire falls short of the need for stringent access rights, and full auditable trails. Filemail is fully compliant with a number of global and regional legislation, and industry regulatory mandates.
MediaFire has chosen to position themselves on price, which are the lowest on the market. This has been achieved in part by the removal of features and platforms that don't take into account users differing needs. With our cloud storage service, we have chosen to position ourselves with an evolving solution that meets the needs of various stakeholders.
For ad-hoc on-the-fly file transferring MediaFire offers the ability to share files online without registering. We also offer a free service. The table below shows how the 2 options compare.
You can stop using the compressors, the files splitters and whatever else. Send more photos and videos with us.
Both you and the recipient want to make sure your file is not available longer than need be. We state clearly, with us, they are available for 7 days.
The MediaFire website is plagued with ads. Internal ads harassing you to upgrade, and external ads as well. Quite simply, we don't do ads.
We take the security and integrity of your data very seriously, which is why all shared files are scanned for viruses.
Professionals and freelancers in many fields including marketers, audio/video specialists, photographers, and engineers use file transferring solution as an integral component of their workflow. As they are one-man teams, they only need an individual 1-user account, typically named a Professional Account.
The features for individual users offered by Filemail and MediaFire are shown below.
Protocols such as FTP and HTTP based on TCP are painfully slow when compared to our custom UDP. Transfer files up to 200 times faster with our cloud service.
With a personal account you can send or receive a files and folders of up to 250 GB, rather than the 20 GB max offered by MediaFire.
Encryption, anti-virus and password protection guarantees peace of mind and happy clients, who get the files they are paying you for.
Did your client download the files? Do you know? Are you going to chase them up. You will. With Filemail, you'll know when they obtained the files.
A business account is for companies that require multi-user accounts. Businesses have taken advantage of the speed and efficiency of sending and receiving files via the internet, rather than snail mail and other such out-dated methods.
However due to the size of files, and the need for security and compliance, businesses are using dedicated transferring solutions like Filemail, with files hosted in the cloud, that go far beyond emails and FTP.
The table below shows the benefits you get from a business account provided by Filemail and MediaFire.
MediaFire does let you receive files, but where they permit 20 GB, we permit you to receive files and folders of unlimited size.
Don’t get up in the middle of the night to manually download files. With Filemail your files can be automatically downloaded, so you have the files ready to go when you wake up.
Your data needs to be protected from the variety of dangers, be it malicious or otherwise. With Filemail, your data is encrypted, and we use anti-virus software.
Ensure brand consistency by customizing all aspects of our tools. Emails, upload forms, and named sub-domain to preserve brand recognition.
We have been using Filemail since many years and are very happy with the uncomplicated way to send large files. And the support has always been very quick and helpful.
For me, Filemail is the perfect companion for my media transferring needs. It’s quick, reliable and in my opinion far better than any other file transferring platform. A+
FILEMAIL is perfect for all my file transfer requirements... its easy & quick to upload my huge video & stills photography projects - a doddle for the clients to download too... I can't recommend FILEMAIL highly enough!
