Protocols allow for easy sharing of information and resources over the internet. No matter which operating system your employees, vendors, and partners are using, EFT is a managed file transfer software that can communicate with them over common, industry-standard protocols, including FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, AS2, and SFTP. The client, not the server, drives the authentication process, so you can choose the protocols that connecting clients use.

EFT is an FTP alternative that uses strong ciphers, encryption keys, secure protocols and more to improve your data security.


Protect your data and secure your network. Left unprotected, data at rest or in transit can be at risk for a breach. Using insecure FTP servers to share data isn’t a wise practice. It is essential to use secure data transfer software and employ security best practices. This includes using encrypted file transfer software, secure protocols, strong ciphers, encryption keys, and password policies. All of these support managed file transfer security so that you’re better equipped to safeguard sensitive information and avoid data breaches.

EFT is a secure file transfer platform that can automate compliance tasks and help ensure your organization meets regulatory standards


Organizations that struggle to meet government- and industry-regulated compliance mandates risk heavy fines—and worse—they risk reputation-damaging data breaches. Through a secure file transfer solution, meeting and maintaining compliance is easier to achieve. EFT’s security modules use secure protocols, strong ciphers and encryption keys to ensure data at rest and data in transit is protected. You can automate crucial compliance tasks using event rules and even create settings that can enforce compliance measures.
