NCC Group provides escrow and information services to more than 15,000 organizations worldwide. With 12 offices throughout the UK, continental Europe, U.S. and Australia, NCC Group successfully delivers numerous varied assignments for clients in the financial, retail and public sector. They give businesses confidence that their systems, networks, websites and software are appropriate, protected, secure, compliant and effective.


Since NCC provides escrow and information services to international businesses, they have a great need to quickly and securely transfer files globally. Large files were being sent through NCC’s centrally located FTP server in its Manchester data center.

  • Extremely slow global transfers caused by the large geographical distance between sender and recipient.
  • Inability to track data movement as their FTP technology provided no audit trail.
  • Slow and problematic transfers using IP networking not designed for global transfers.
  • Protecting against a data breach is imperative as uploaded files consist of NCC’s customer’s software source code.


NCC chose Thru’s File Exchange and Collaboration Platform to transfer sensitive files around the globe. Powered by the Content Delivery Network, Thru enables secure transfers of files or folders of any size with storage of these files on strategically located servers around the globe.
