We’re no marketing gurus but we’ve watched enough Mad Men to know that branding matters. Your brand matters to your customers, your brand matters to your staff and your brand matters to us. That’s why all Maytech products are fully brandable.
You might be dealing with a customer half way across the world that speaks a different language but totally understands your brand. When they connect with your cloud file sharing platform they need to see your logo and company colours. So that’s exactly what we allow you to show them.
Your customers and staff will feel more comfortable interacting with a branded platform and it looks considerably more professional. But you know this already. Continue reading
Did you know that on FTP-Stream you can create direct links to files?
Direct Links are password-less links that takes someone directly to a document on your FTP-Stream site.
For example, in a recent competition that Maytech ran, our Brand Manager needed a way of linking to the T&C’s (terms and conditions). So she loaded the document onto the FTP and used the direct link in her emails for the entrant to view the T&C’s. Continue reading
If you’re anything like us then you worry as soon as you click that send button and release important data into the World Wide Web. You worry that you mistakenly sent it to the wrong person, you worry if it’ll even get there at all or if it’s stuck somewhere in the matrix getting a beat down from Keanu Reeves.
Okay, so there’s some wild imaginations here at Maytech but nevertheless that’s why our FTP Stream comes with granular logging, tracking and controls so you can have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your business files are where you want them to be and being accessed by who you want to access them at any given time.
The comprehensive logging, tracking and controls available on our FTP Stream have been so effective in helping our customers control the data going in and out of their companies, we thought we should highlight some of the good work it does. Continue reading
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.
A blonde walked into a doctor’s office with two burnt ears. The doctor asked her, “What happened to your ear?” The blonde replied, “I was ironing and the phone rang, so instead of picking up the phone, I picked up the iron and put it to my ear.”Still not satisfied, the doctor asked, “Well, what happened to the other ear?” “The idiot called again!”
Now jokes like this don’t help with busting the widespread myth that blondes are incapable of handling immense complexity. The myth persists despite various scientific studies and notable lists such as Forbes Magazine’s list of the 100 Most Powerful Women, which is littered with super-smart blondes such as: Marissa Meyer, CEO of Yahoo…Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany…Hillary Clinton, US Senator and former First Lady…Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund…Virginia Rometty, CEO of IBM…JK Rowling, author of the global Harry Potter phenomenon…and countless others.

Despite all the positive propaganda surrounding cloud computing safety, the prospect of handing over your data is daunting. Security breaches over the internet are rife, and you only have to glance at the media coverage surrounding governments investigating social media to have great cause for concern. However, countless businesses are taking advantage of the wonderful benefits offered by doing business in the Cloud. And whilst they have the same fears that you do, they also have 5 fear-busting facts that we’ll share with you in this article. Use these 5 ways to share data across the Cloud with absolute peace of mind.
#1 Keep your Data Close by
Businesses are a lot more comfortable with the idea of cloud computing when their assets are stored close by. Keeping data in its country of origin will assure that it is protected under local security legislation and ease the process of checking business contingency plans. Using a product which allows you to determine the global residency of your data – such as Maytech’s FTP-Stream – is a simple way to ease your mind about the location of your data. Continue reading

Your FTP-Stream site is backed up every hour on the hour. We call these backups snapshots – they are a complete snap of your site frozen in time.
We keep your snapshots for 28 days, you can list your snapshots, explore the contents of each snap and restore any files or folders that may have been accidentally deleted or overwritten.
Your site is backed up locally at your chosen data centre. Unless you are using our replication feature your files are never copied outside your chosen data centre and we keep no persistent backups beyond the 28 day snapshot cycle. Continue reading
Businesses that rely on sharing large amounts of information need to have a solution that not only achieves the required level of security and compliance, but also provides adequate functionality to ensure file transfers are conducted as easily as possible in a controlled manner. In the olden days before software became readily available to everyone, old school style corporate business file sharing solutions were typically selected by the IT department with little attention paid to end user usability.
The fact is that nowadays corporate level solutions no longer need to be over-complex or difficult to use. There are plenty of consumer level file sharing solutions that are a breeze to set up and use, and most of them have robust enterprise level variances, normally via a Cloud based premium subscription service.

So what does a seven year old file hosting company founded by a couple of MIT students in California have to do with the collapse of the thousand year long reign of the ancient Roman Empire?
Short answer: one word uttered by Dropbox’s head of infrastructure, following a 48-hour outage of Dropbox’s services on January 10th 2014.
And what’s worse is that this one word not only was responsible for the collapse of the mighty undefeatable Roman Empire, but this one word is currently a ticking time bomb that threatens the security and survival of your company. Continue reading
