Strong authentication & encryption
Own your data
Control the login methods, protocols, public keys & permissions of each user. Additionally, you can restrict access to a specific path (chroot).
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 public key authentication.
We provide each user with its own isolated S3-compatible storage but you can always bring your own storage. By doing that, your data is stored on your storage.
