SFTP is a platform independent, secure transfer protocol preferred by IT professionals worldwide. SFTP provides a single connection port for easy firewall navigation, password and public key authentication, and strong data encryption, which prevents login, data, and session information from being intercepted and/or modified in transit. The SFTP module for the Enhanced File Transfer (EFT) platform enables authentication and secure data transfers with SFTP-ready FTP clients, such as CuteFTP® file transfer software.
Ease of Administration and Integration
SFTP provides a single connection port for transversal of firewalls, with one-click setup, cross platform support, maximum connectivity coverage, enhanced management of keys, ciphers, and MACs, and greater identity protection through public key authentication. Built-in data checking mechanisms and detailed logging determine exact reasons for success or failure of SFTP sessions.
You can choose whether connecting clients and trading partners supply a public key (identify file) for dual-factor authentication, in addition to standard password authentication. EFT with the SFTP module validates the integrity of transmitted data, allows certain encryption algorithms for maximum security, or allows all available types for maximum flexibility. You can create key pairs, manage keys, import/export keys and specify the allowed key (identify file) for a user account.
