Sending Files to China
Despite complexities in global trade and international politics, most businesses have some need to do business in China. Whether it’s the necessity to connect with China’s rich manufacturing sector or the ability to exchange critical business data between massive Chinese corporations, finding a way to send data back-and-forth to China is mission-critical in today’s business ecosystem.
But, needing to send data and actually finding a way to send that data are two wildly different animals. Sending files and documents overseas is difficult enough, but trying to send large files to China is a massive pain point in the business world.
Not only are security issues baked into large, overseas file transfers, but Chinese firewalls and traffic restrictions make the process of data share between countries filled with friction.
So, how do you send those large files safely and rapidly to China?
Let’s talk about it.
Understanding the Great Firewall of China
The Great Firewall of China (GFC) is a combination of regulatory processes and security technologies that prevent domestic influence from reaching China. This massive firewall infrastructure can seriously impede any attempt to share knowledge between China and other countries. For starters, the firewall will block most cloud-based file transfers.
In fact, Google Drive, DropBox, We Transfer, Gmail, Slack, and even Scribd are entirely blocked in China. This means that any attempt to use these services to transfer data to China will result in a failure. Your Chinese counterparts won’t be able to access the content.
It’s not only file sharing services either. Any attempt to bypass that by uploading content to social media, YouTube, or even messaging apps (WhatsApp, Messenger, etc.) will also fail — because these apps are also blocked in China.
So, what do you do? How do you send those critical files to China? After all, business needs are hinged on adequate file transfer. But, with so many conflating factors, how do you handle file sharing to China?
How Binfer Helps Send Large Files to China
Sending files on the cloud to China poses two significant issues.
- Most cloud services are blocked in China.
- Cloud security issues are a rampant issue for file sharing. Microsoft, DropBox, and other massive cloud servers have all been subject to hacks over the years (we’re talking hundreds of millions of users.) This issue is compounded when you’re sending files to another country, especially one with complicated technological infrastructure like China.
So, how do you bypass these issues and ensure that your information arrives safe-and-sound in China? Direct file transfers! Unlike cloud services that utilize an intermediary server, Binfer sends files directly from one computer to another. So, instead of sending these files to a server that’s going to be blocked by a Chinese firewall, Binfer directly transfers all data from one computer to another. You can immediately, and safely, send large files to China.

What About Encryption?
Binfer uses 256-bit encryption technology to ensure that your files never touch a cloud server before reaching their destination.
Not only does Binfer help you bypass the Great Firewall of China, but Binfer is faster than cloud servers, doesn’t throttle bandwidth, and relies solely on your ISPs speed.
Since your files are directly transferred, you can maintain native file structures. This way you can avoid cumbersome cloud architectures. Our sophisticated tunneling keeps your files secure, while our deep infrastructure keeps the speed at the forefront of your transfers.
