Secure File Transfer

Secure, automate and streamline sensitive file transfers

What is Secure File Transfer?


Secure file transfer (SFT) is an all-in-one secure solution that streamlines your file transfer processes while protecting your data. With support for multiple file transfer protocols, audit reporting, and automation capabilities, you’ll save time while improving security in your organization.

What Do Secure File Transfer Solutions Do?

Secure file transfer solutions automate and secure file movement using a centralized, enterprise-level approach. With an SFT solution, file transfers and related business processes are streamlined without the need for programming or special skills.

Why Use Secure File Transfer?

Easily exchanging information through file transfers is critical to doing business, but it’s also an area where many organizations have severe security vulnerabilities. Poor FTP implementations, a lack of internal security controls, and insecure file sharing apps are just a few of the problems that could be putting your valuable data at risk.

Many organizations attempt to handle new file transfer requirements by writing custom scripts – a practice which is expensive, time-consuming, and error-prone. With SFT by your side, there is no need to juggle multiple tools across disparate systems as your team’s resources are drained – file transfers don’t have to take up precious time, they can be managed with the built-in features designed for reliability and automation.

With secure file transfers, you can quickly create new processes, keep an eye on your data transfers, and limit access to appropriate parties. Built-in auditing helps you monitor user access and know when file transfers fail – or succeed. Safeguard your organization while simplifying your day-to-day with one of Fortra's SFT solutions.
