EFT SMB Manages and Automates Your Data Processes,
While You Manage Your Business
Using manual processes to move and deliver data can make your organization vulnerable to workforce limitations, vacations, turnover, and simple human error. Automation allows you to move and deliver data without manual intervention, not only saving time, but avoiding potential costly errors. As with our enterprise file transfer automation capabilities, EFT SMB can automate the delivery of data when it's needed, instead of when you have time to do it, increasing your day-to-day productivity and overall operational efficiency.
EFT SMB is scalable and flexible, automating data exchanges among employees, internal systems, remote offices, suppliers, partners, and customers.
The automation features in EFT SMB provide more control, and a more efficient and secure data exchange process. Choose automation modules that are customized and unique to your environment.
- Custom Commands
Custom Commands interface built into EFT SMB executes programs, scripts, or batch files with or without command line arguments, providing administrators almost limitless extensibility. Commands can be invoked directly by a user from an FTP client, such as CuteFTP®, (if permitted by the Server administrator) or as an automated Action from EFT’s Event Rules.
- The Folder Monitor Module
The Folder Monitor Module creates an Event Rule trigger used to detect the creation, deletion, and renaming of files in a monitored folder and to perform Actions based on these triggers. For example, perhaps a weekly report is uploaded to a specific folder. You can define an Event Rule so that when EFT SMB detects that a file has been added to the folder, an email is sent to notify one or more users that the report is available for download.
- The Timer Module
The Timer Module allows you to execute a specified Action (e.g., generate and send a report) only one time or to repeat at specified intervals. For example, you could schedule an Action to occur on July 8 at midnight, or every Monday morning, or on the last Friday of every month at 2 a.m.
- The Client FTP Module
The Client FTP Module enables EFT SMB admins to define copy, move, and download actions in Event Rules. For example, you could define a rule to trigger when a file is uploaded, so that EFT SMB moves it to another folder.

Data breaches have spurred dozens of government and industry regulations. PCI, SOX, GLB, HIPAA, FIPS, and others make compliance and security an ongoing issue. Not complying with these and other regulations can result in hefty fines and bad press. EFT SMB offers built-in security features and its optional modules protect your data and facilitate compliance with government and industry regulations.
From using secure protocols to following the security requirements of the most rigorous compliance standards, every aspect of EFT SMB has been built with data security in mind. EFT SMB securely manages data exchanges among employees, clients, and partners using secure protocols, message integrity, and data encryption. Using standard, non-proprietary protocols to makes it easy for any authorized clients to connect to EFT SMB.
EFT SMB supports SSL/TLS for client and server authentication, message integrity, and encryptions. You can configure security features to verify users' identities, allow users to verify your identity, and to encrypt file transfers. FTPS is an enhancement to standard FTP that uses FTP commands over secure sockets.

The HTTPS module adds the HTTPS protocol to EFT SMB, enabling you to support browser-based transfers without having to install a web server.
Transfer files with SFTP/SSH connectivity
The SFTP module adds the SFTP protocol to EFT SMB, enabling you to authenticate and transfer data with SFTP-ready FTP clients, such as CuteFTP.
