Allow secure connections from SFTP clients
The SFTP module enables the SFTP protocol in Globalscape EFT, which allows authentication and transfer data with secure FTP clients, such as CuteFTP.
What Is SFTP?
SSH File Transfer protocol (SFTP) is a platform-independent, secure transfer protocol that is a crucial component of security measures and compliance mandates for organizations, worldwide. Many business partners, vendors, and more prefer SFTP file transfer as a secure method of communication instead of FTP. The SFTP module for the Globalscape EFT platform enables authentication and secure file transfers with SFTP clients.
Easy Setup and Key Management
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. Globalscape EFT's SFTP tool uses built-in data checking mechanisms and detailed logging to determine the exact reasons for success or failure of SFTP sessions.
Secure Connections & File Transfers with SFTP
You can choose whether connecting clients and trading partners supply a public key for dual-factor authentication, in addition to standard password authentication. With the SFTP module, Globalscape EFT 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.
