Sohonet FileRunner enables secure, unlimited data packet sharing for media and entertainment companies.

LONDON, UK –  April 7, 2015 – Sohonet, the leading global expert in connectivity and data management services for the media and entertainment industry, today announced the launch of Sohonet FileRunner, a state-of-the-art file transfer service that allows users to share unlimited data packages via a web browser on Sohonet’s dedicated private network. Sohonet’s file transfer application, FileRunner, is the only file transfer application built on a private network for media and entertainment. FileRunner enables unlimited data packet sharing through the browser and does not require plug-in, software or server installs. FileRunner leverages Sohonet FileStore as the underlying storage technology, making it fast, secure and reliable and eliminating the need for local server installs. Sohonet customers can leverage their high-speed Sohonet Media Network connection and share unlimited data packages with collaboration partners who are already on the Sohonet Media Network, as well as receiving an allotment of bandwidth for recipients who are not currently on the network. FileRunner provides multi-threaded, parallel accelerated file uploads for bandwidth optimization and offers HTTPS encryption in transit for additional security. With FileRunner there are no limitations or pricing governance on bandwidth utilized for bandwidth optimization. “Sohonet FileRunner is a game-changer for businesses who need to share large amounts of data. Built on a dedicated private network, FileRunner allows the sender to maximize their own connection speed without being reduced to the slowest connection in the recipient pool, essentially generating more throughput than in a point-to-point model. This, along with the simplicity of the browser interface and the security of encryption and storage on our private network makes FileRunner a one-of-a-kind solution for media and entertainment companies,” says Chuck Parker, Executive Chairman, Sohonet. Sohonet will be launching Sohonet FileRunner during NAB in Las Vegas, Nevada. To schedule a meeting or for more information, please visit our website at .
