Secure File Transfer Solutions



Many organisations still rely on traditional FTP file transfer solutions to move sensitive data both inside and outside of the business.  However, the fundamental security flaws associated with basic FTP means that this data is left wide open to attack from hackers.  These flaws accompanied by the heightening of data security standards and powers of enforcement, mean the need for secure file transfer solutions has never been greater.

Here’s a selection of the key secure file transfer technologies that we recommend, however we do provide alternative solutions within our full portfolio.

Below is a list of solutions we highly recommend for Secure File Transfer. If you would like to find out more about our full product portfolio, please don’t hesitate to contact Pro2col on 0333 123 1240.

Key secure file transfer protocols include:

  • FTPS (FTP run over SSL/TLS)
  • SFTP (SSH – Secure Shell protocol)
