Alternative to Email - Secure Method to deliver different reports to different clients

Alternative to Email - Secure Method to deliver different reports to different clients

(OP)
Currently distribute approximately 35 reports to 35 different external clients via email every month.

However, I need to explore additional more secure options that are reasonably priced.

Currently reading/researching FTP but really need a seamless professional and secure method to deliver the monthly files.

Any insight as to an alternative method that will enable each client to access their respective folder and/or file?

Is it possible for the existing clients and/or prospective clients to access their respective report via a website?

RE: Alternative to Email - Secure Method to deliver different reports to different clients

My bank send these notes to me via email notifying me that I have an email to view. You have to then login to their device to view the email. So it is secure and professional whereas a direct email is NOT.
Here is an image of the email I get and then you click where it says Click Here to login. It might cost some money to get the Barracuda system, but it seems like a good way to do it.

Yes and ANY half decent content management system (CMS) or customer relationship manager (CRM) can do this.

Horde (Open Source collaboration tool) is one such example

Even WordPress can do this with a couple of plugins for better user management.
