Replace Your FTP Program with a Secure File Transfer Client
If your organization uses a file transfer program that only supports the legacy FTP protocol, your data is at risk. Programs that use FTP for file transfer operations send data in the clear.
There are a number of ways to improve data security, and SecureFX® provides multiple protocol support with several secure options.
Secure File Transfer Options
SecureFX supports a number of secure file transfer protocols:
- FTP over SSL
SFTP provides a high level of security by protecting data in transit from a number of threats—those originating from a compromised server, from an unauthenticated client, or from hacking attacks while data is in transit. To use SecureFX as an SFTP client program requires connection with an SFTP-enabled server, like VanDyke Software's VShell®.
If your file transfer operations involve a server that does not recognize SFTP, FTP over SSL may be a solution as it creates a secure connection through which both control and file content data are encrypted.
One Secure Program for Your Organization
One of the biggest challenges to replacing an FTP program is getting users to adopt it. SecureFX makes the switch easy. Drag and drop capability and other easy-to-use features make file transfer operations intuitive. SecureFX is available for most major platforms (Windows, Mac, and Linux), and the familiar interface remains consistent across platforms, minimizing the need for cross-platform training.
Multiple-platform support and excellent technical support make SecureFX an ideal program to consider for standardization within your organization.
