Need to give your customers and partners an easy and secure connection right away? Offering HTTPS support from your file server takes advantage of the ease of use and wide installation base that web browsers already provide. The HTTPS add-on module to the Enhanced File Transfer (EFT) platform enables you to support secure, browser-based transfers without having to install a web server. The HTTPS module is included in EFT Enterprise, and you can add it on to EFT SMB.
All You Need Is a Web Browser
Extending your secure file transfer solution to trading partners, suppliers, and clients can be difficult if they discover they have to install extra software or pay for installation of expensive proprietary pieces just to be able to work with your system. A smart solution is to let your users transfer with something they already have: a web browser. EFT can work with just about any web browser to provide secure file exchange.
Is HTTPS Secure?
HTTPS is used to access secure Web servers when authentication and encrypted communication is desired. Using HTTPS instead of HTTP directs the message to a secure port number rather than the default Web port number of 80. HTTPS encrypts the session data using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol, which ensures protection from eavesdroppers and man-in-the-middle attacks.
Transferring Files with a Browser
Enabling HTTPS transfers in EFT is as easy as selecting a checkbox. All user and folder settings are inherited from the server settings. Standard Browse and Upload buttons make copying a file to EFT as easy as adding a picture to an eBay auction. EFT’s HTTPS support enables cost-effective security for file exchange that’s easy for your trading partners to use.
