SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a network protocol for secure file transfer between a client and a server. It is based on the Secure Shell Protocol (SSH), which provides secure user authentication and encrypted data transfer to protect your data from unauthorized access. SFTP is a secure alternative to other file transfer protocols such as FTP and is used in many different industries, including retail, automotive, healthcare, and finance. It is also used in conjunction with EDI.
The Module SFTP Server extends the functionality of !MC5 with the ability to transfer encrypted data via SFTP. It provides an SFTP server to which your business partners can connect with any SFTP clients to send you data or download ready data. The Module SFTP Server is specially optimized for secure EDI data exchange and provides the highest security standards by implementing pure SFTP access without shell access or other SSH services. Users have no access to the local file system and only get access to the data provided for them.
The Module SFTP Server integrates seamlessly with !MC5 and all supported add-ons and modules, including the EDI module, to provide comprehensive EDI processing. It already includes an SFTP Channel that can be used with both the Module SFTP Server and the Module SFTP Client.
