The new distributor agreement between FileCatalyst and Rikei agrees that Rikei may provide the FileCatalyst platform of accelerated and managed file transfer solutions within its market territory. The addition of the FileCatalyst UDP-based protocol allows for fast, simple and reliable sharing of digital content among Rikei’s clients. FileCatalyst’s accelerated file transfer technology solves many problems related to file transfer including slow and unreliable transfers often experienced when transferring large files over geographically dispersed locations.

“We are happy to extend our list of global partners with the addition of the FileCatalyst suite of accelerated file transfer solutions,” says Hiroaki Koganemaru, Executive Officer of Rikei. “FileCatalyst transfers large file sizes quickly and securely, even in poor network conditions or when packet loss is present. These are features crucial to many of our customers.”

“The partnership between FileCatalyst and Rikei is a great match,” says Alan Atkinson, VP of Business Development at Unlimi-Tech. “Rikei is a leading and reputable IT solutions distributor in Japan, and we are pleased to extend our reach to the Japanese market through this company.”

FileCatalyst will be exhibiting the FileCatalyst suite of solutions at Broadcast Asia, the continent’s largest representative, integrated show for the pro-audio, film and TV industries, taking place at the Marina Bay Sands, in Singapore from June 18 – 21.
