5. www.tboxcloud.com 5 © TBoxCloud, Inc . THIS CONTENT IS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND SHOULD NOT BE SHARED WITHOUT TBOXCLOUD’S AUTHORIZATION Thinking of using Flat Files for your “integrations”? Think again! By definition, FTP solutions are NOT integration solutions. They are “File Transfer/Upload” solutions. Flat Files, or FTP (File Transfer Protocol), have been the mainstay of “data transfer” solutions for more than 4 decades but have since been surpassed by simpler and more effective solutions. So the question is, why is this 40 - year - old appliance which continues to pile - up tangible and intangible costs to run and maintain, and has obvious limitations, is still being used by most organizations today? Flat File appliances are no longer viable solutions for today’s competitive organizations. Did you know? FTP is over 40 years old, almost a decade older than the Commodore 64 and the first Walkman. Did you know? 100 FTP solutions can cost over $1M to run and manage. Source: Gartner

4. www.tboxcloud.com 4 © TBoxCloud, Inc . THIS CONTENT IS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND SHOULD NOT BE SHARED WITHOUT TBOXCLOUD’S AUTHORIZATION Comparison of Enterprise Integration Architecture Models Not all Integration Architectures cost the same to run or yield the same Value. API and/or DB Direct Connect (Segregated Integrations) FTP Data Transfer (Segregated Data Loads) Data/File Transfer FACTS • Systems Integrations are considered Mission Critical for most organizations. They are the Strategic Foundation for the Data Map the organization relies on. • Running parallel integrations impairs your ability to strategically create a “Unified” Foundation for the Data Map your organization should be able to rely on. • Parallel integrations, especially Flat File solutions, guarantee the inability to adequately scale - up and lead to a patchwork of side - workarounds to compensate for their limitations . • Flat File and Direct Connections solutions are outdated integration models, non - strategic, and yield little value compared to Unified solutions . • Despite the appearance of being “ simpler and cheaper ”, they feed the proliferation of mounting complexity, disrupt productivity, and cumulate both tangible and intangible costs .

7. www.tboxcloud.com 7 © TBoxCloud, Inc . THIS CONTENT IS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND SHOULD NOT BE SHARED WITHOUT TBOXCLOUD’S AUTHORIZATION • Standard solution for Enterprise Integrations. • Used to integrate 2 or more systems. • Integrate Cloud and On - premise systems. • Option to “Unify” some or all your Integrations. • Fully Secured. • Fully Scalable. • Support all industry standard protocols. • Hosted on customer - dedicated Private Clouds. • Let the Technology work for those end users who depend on it . Not the other way around where they compromise their work due to technology and process limitations. • Improve data integrity and quality. • Increase user adoption, gain the trust and credibility back from your users and management. • Get maximum value from your investment. • Simplify your systems architecture and operations. • Scale up more efficiently and remain competitive. • Work with fewer vendors. • Reduce cost centers totals. Hub - based Integrations: The better choice. FACTS • Most customers have more than 2 Apps they need/should integrate. • Customers drive more value per connected Apps when their integrations are Unified. Hub - based Model (Unified Integrations)

THIS CONTENT IS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND SHOULD NOT BE SHARED WITHOUT TBOXCLOUD’S AUTHORIZATION ISSUES with Flat File / FTP Solutions • SECURITY ISSUES • Not designed to be a secured protocol and has many security weaknesses (Brute Force Attack, FTP Bounce Attack, Packet Capture, Port Stealing, Spoofing Attack, Username Protection,...) • FTP does not encrypt its traffic. All transmissions are in clear text, including Usernames and Passwords. • Requires additional applications, hardware, and complex configuration to provide “some security” on connectivity. Solutions include the use of Firewall, NAT Gateway, and Encryption applications (options include FTPS and TelnetS , SSH FTP/Secure Copy Protocol, SSH, VPN.) • Control Connections remain open during sessions of multiple file transfers. • DATA INTEGRITY ISSUES • FTP Control connections are slow due to round - trip delays of commands. • Download interruptions from Firewall or NAT if transfer timing is disrupted. • OTHER ISSUES • Inconvenient for small data transfers. • Inadequate for large data volumes. • Inadequate for time sensitive operations. • No Integration Logic: Does not perform on - the - fly or conditional operations, workflows, transformations, etc. • Limitations force users to come - up with side - workarounds . • Limited notifications... Flat File / FTP Solutions: Not the best Choice FTP Data Transfer (Segregated Data Loads) Data/File Transfer
