SFTP File Transfer

With data security a key concern for businesses across the world, safeguarding sensitive corporate information is one of IT’s biggest priorities.

SFTP file transfer (sometimes referred to as SSH secure file transfer) is an essential component in modern corporate data workflows and allows organisations to send and receive data completely safely.

What is SFTP?

SFTP file transfer is mandated by many companies, including Google, as the only method for secure data exchange.

It stands for SSH File Transfer Protocol and allows files to be transferred between hosts in a similar way to the SCP protocol. It encrypts both commands and data, which means that sensitive data and user passwords can’t be intercepted by third parties.
