Business operations generate data at a staggering rate — transaction logs, customer information, usage statistics. This data regularly needs to be moved from one system to another without risking a compromise of its content or integrity. In many cases these transfers need to be automated for efficiency.
The standard SSH protocol includes a built–in, secure alternative to the (now legacy) File Transfer Protocol (FTP). SFTP allows protected file transfers that can be used for secure and tamperproof mass data movement — even across untrusted networks such as the public Internet.
