SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) provides for the secure file transfer of files over an encrypted connection that protects both your credentials and data while in transit. Unlike FTP/S, which uses several ports, SFTP uses a single port (default 22) for all communications between the client and server. This can minimize the potential for firewall issues when exchanging data with your trading partners.
In addition to SFTP, JSCAPE MFT Server offers support for numerous other protocols including FTP/S, AS2, SCP, HTTP/S, TFTP, OFTP and AFTP (Accelerated File Transfer Protocol) for use in performing file transfers over networks that suffer from latency and/or packet loss.
