We develop sturdy mission critical information or integration systems systems that really works far beyond what is expected. During the journey we are also picking up speed on excellent GUIs.

Some of our esteemed ProVide (zFTPServer) customers have actually been with us ever since we launched the first commercial version of zFTPserver!

History of ProVide server

ProVide started out as zFTPserver initially developed by one of the founding partners. After winning a national programming competition with zFTPServer the software gained acclaim worldwide; and was adopted and commercialized as one of the core business areas of the company, and its customer base grew continually into thousands. Evolving zFTPServer into a fully fledged all-in-one MFT solution that has achieved top notch security while maintaing performance and portability, has taken thousands of hours and lots and lots of customer input and suggestions.

Two years ago we decided to change the name from zFTPServer into something more fitting that reflected what ProVide has indeed become: A market leading server software for providing secure user and systems communication. As such, ProVide includes both a easy-to-use web interface as well as FTP/FTPS, SFTP and TFTP with the highest security standards possible. We also have included extremely powerful scripting, virtual users and event engines for integration and for making ProVide the heart of communication in both small businesses and large enterprises. Västgöta-Data AB keeps inventing and evolving ProVide both to cater for changes in surrounding software but also to include features requested from customers. Almost 15 years later we look forward to keep inventing and evolving what has now become one of, if not the best, most secure, and generally kick ass, MFT and communications software ever created.
