Create the File Transfer Solution You Need

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.

Guaranteed Data Delivery

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.

Move Your Data, Faster

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.

A Highly Compatible Solution With a Wide Variety of Protocols

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.

Security That Suits You

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.

Life-Cycle Management Made Easy

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.

Audit Your Server for Complete Accountability

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.

Powerful Features for Compliant File Transfer

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.
