One of the most impressive things about EFT Server is that it can be configured for almost any application. With flexible modules, you can build an SFTP and MFT solution that fits your goals. We can help.
Most of us look for one essential feature in file transfer software – that data gets to where it needs to be, every single time. EFT Server extends the FTP protocol with post-transmission integrity verification, mid-file recovery and automatic restart for failed transfer.
To help you get your data to where it needs to be fast, EFT Server supports multi-part (segmented) transfers, ensuring expedient data transfer, no matter the geographical distance that you need to cover.
If you deal with multiple partners, you will need to support a wide variety of protocols. For security, EFT Server supports FTPS (SSL/TLS), SFTP (SSH2) and HTTP/S (SSL). The server even includes IPv6 Support to create a future-proof solution.
Even with the protocols in place for secure transfer, you may need more control. EFT Server gives you the chance to use password, public-key or one-time-password authentication, and even specific SSL ciphers and version levels for complete control over who can access your data.
From a central control panel, you can quickly and efficiently manage your entire server. From provisioning new users to managing users and user groups, you can create a granular environment that gives every user the level of control that they need. Of course, power users can also control EFT Server through their own applications, using a Component Object Model (COM) interface.
Security depends on strong audit trails. EFT Server includes industry standard logging including W3C, NCSA and Microsoft IIS Extended, as well as e-mail notifications and digital certificates for proof of identity.
It’s not enough to transfer data in a secure and safe way – you need to be able to prove it. EFT Server is compliant with agreed standards in data security, including PCI, FIPS, HIPAA and SOX.
EFT Server Enterprise edition gives you a more detailed insight into where your data is going. You can use the optional ARM module with an Oracle database, or monitor transactions in real time to get a precise picture of your file transfers.
For dependable security to protect your data in transit, EFT Server Enterprise edition comes complete with SFTP (SSH) and HTTPS modules for encrypted transfers, even through a web browser. You can even add AS2 support with the optional AS2 module.
The most successful enterprises bring together multiple connected platforms. EFT Server Enterprise edition can be connected with your back-end systems to work as part of an integrated overall approach to data.
Larger enterprises take more administration. That’s why EFT Server Enterprise edition features delegated administration, which can be configured to be user-only, site-only, or server-only.
Available as an additional module, the DMZ Gateway Server works on the edge of your network, helping to establish connections for data transfer. With EFT Server Enterprise edition, you can configure the DMZ Gateway server for multi-site use.
The more authentication and authorization systems that are available to you, the more robust your file transfer solution will be. EFT Server Enterprise edition allows you to use SSL certificate-only authentication and LDAP authentication, as well as password, public-key and one-time-password authentication. You can even manage your profiles internally or externally through HTML, Active Directory (AD) or ODBC data sources.

- High Security Module (HSM)
Take the security of your EFT Server even further to meet evolving compliance demands. With secure protocols, strong ciphers and encryption keys, and strict password policies, this module can help you meet the mandates of PCI DSS, HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley.
- Auditing and Reporting Module (ARM)
Robust and detailed monitoring can help you to get the most from EFT Server. The Auditing and Reporting Module (ARM) allows you to query activity on your server and create or view reports that make transfer history easy to understand. With EFT Server Enterprise edition, you can use an Oracle database to run your ARM.
- Web Transfer Client (WTC)
Make data transfer accessible from any web-enabled device. The Web Transfer Client (WTC) deploys when a client connects to EFT Server, providing a secure transfer client in any Java and DHTML-enabled browser.
- Secure Ad Hoc Transfer (SAT)
Why spend your time creating temporary FTP accounts to enable connections to your server? The Secure Ad Hoc Transfer Module (SAT) allows you to exchange files without manual processing, making it a fantastic alternative to restrictive email transfers.
- DMZ Gateway
You can never be too secure. The DMZ Gateway is used with EFT Server to provide another layer to your security, residing at the edge of your network to broker data between your EFT Server and the rest of the world. In EFT Server Enterprise Edition, you can configure a multiple-site DMZ Gateway.
- AS2 (EFT Server Enterprise only)
Applicability Statement 2 is rapidly becoming a leading way for businesses to exchange structured data on top of the HTTP or HTTP/S protocol. With this module, you can add AS2 functionality to EFT Server Enterprise edition.

An effective way to add additional automation capabilities to your EFT Server, the Advanced Workflow Engine allows you to add scripting and variables to Workflow Tasks, then add these reusable Workflows to Event Rules. Your event-driven automation becomes reusable, saving you time as you create new rules.
