DescriptionSFTP, or Secure File Transfer Protocol, is a widely used protocol for securely transferring files between a client and a server over a network. Unlike traditional FTP, which sends data in plaintext, SFTP encrypts data before transmission, providing a higher level of security. SFTP utilizes SSH (Secure Shell) for authentication and encryption, ensuring that data transfers are protected from eavesdropping and tampering. As a source, SFTP enables organizations to securely exchange files with partners, customers, and internal systems, facilitating seamless data integration and collaboration. By leveraging SFTP, businesses can automate file transfers, maintain data integrity, and adhere to compliance requirements, making it a reliable and trusted solution for securely transferring sensitive information over the internet.
