SFTP (SSH) Module

What is SFTP?

SFTP is a subset of the popular SSH protocol and 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. EFT’s SFTP extension enables it to authenticate and transfer data securely with SFTP-ready FTP clients, such as CuteFTP Pro.
