Secure File Transfers

FTP & SFTP service

Our intuitive dashboard comes with powerful features that make the management of your FTP (File Transfer Protocol) & SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) servers powered by AWS S3 bucket a breeze.

Quick setup

Provisioning a new FTPS & SFTP server takes less than 1 minute: select the storage you want to use and we handle the rest.

Configurable file transfer protocols

You can easily enable or disable the allowed protocols of the FTPS & SFTP server. Currently, SFTP and FTPS are supported.

Inbound rules

Easily control which user accounts are allowed to connect to your FTP server by defining lists with allowed or blocked IP addresses.

Secure & scalable

SFTPCloud has a strong focus on security & scalability and uses only secure file access protocols.

Simple file management

Manage your files using your favorite FTP client (WinSCP, FileZilla, command line, etc) or an intuitive web file transfer client which allows you to perform all the file system operations on your SFTP server: upload files, access files, transfer files, etc.

Powered by AWS S3

All the files are stored inside your own AWS S3 account (or any other storage provider we support).

Real-time active connections

View in real time which users are connected to your FTPS/SFTP server.

Configurable bandwidth & storage quotas

You can configure the bandwidth & storage each user is allowed to use.


You can get notified when different file events happen via webhooks and email.


Security is our top priority. We recognize the importance of protecting your data and take all necessary steps to ensure secure file transfers.

Granular user control

Control the login methods, protocols, public keys & permissions of each user. Additionally, you can restrict access to a specific path (chroot).

Strong authentication & encryption

The data stored on SFTPCloud is encrypted in transit and, when dealing with more sensitive data, encrypted at rest. The SFTP user can log in using auto-generated strong passwords or SSH Public Key authentication.

A better alternative to AWS Transfer Family service

SFTPCloud allows you to use the SSH file transfer protocol with your own S3 Bucket (Amazon Simple Storage Service), similar to AWS Transfer Family. However, it has more features, more storage integrations, and is less expensive.

You can use the SFTP protocol using any SFTP client. Additionally, you can create your own integrations. For example, using webhooks, you can write your own integration that processes incoming files as they are uploaded.

AWS S3 is not enough?

Besides AWS S3, SFTPCloud allows you to create multiple FTP and SFTP servers powered by a large variety of other storage providers, such as GCS, Azure Blob, Cloudflare R2 and more.
