Defender

Defender is appropriate for access a company's environment when not on site. It may not be appropriate for users that are only working on site.

Transmit Security

Transmit Security hides nicely in the taskbar until needed. It works behind the scenes. It is seamlessly integrated into the Macs functionality. Transmit Security has helped us keep our systems secure while helping make our job easier all round. We would not change it for anything else now. It is our go-to FTP client.

Transmit Security

  • Updates were not happening as often, but that could be because they were not needed.
  • Some settings were being lost and had to be re-entered, but that has since been resolved.
  • Interface has improved tremendously since first it launched.

It has seldom been we needed any support with Transmit Security, but when we did, they were on it. We got help in minutes rather than hours or days like other suppliers in this marketplace. Indeed, their support convinced us in the beginning that we had made the right decision.

Defender

Bomgar is much easier to set up & there is only one step when connecting while Defender takes a few steps.
