Meet Your SFTP Security Requirements

Since launching the world's first hosted FTP service in 2001, FTP Today has been heavily focused on file security and privacy. By the time regulations were due to go into effect on the health care industry, we already had it covered. Over the years, we have expanded our security focused offerings to include other industries such as financial, legal, military, defense and government.

While compliance is a shared responsibility, we partner with you by providing you compliance-ready software built on compliant cloud platforms, so you can confidently share files securely with your business partners.

 

One Software Company.
Two Private Clouds.

  1. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) - Includes Internet bandwidth, the physical data center, network firewalls, host hardware, storage systems, and the hypervisor that delivers cloud servers (virtual machines).
  2. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) - Includes the virtual machine, OS management and patching, storage encryption, backup and contingency planning. 
  3. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) - Includes the applications designed, managed and provided by FTP Today that make up the subscription service.

Compliance is a shared responsibility. The above platform compliance and managed services are our responsibility, which provides the foundation for your compliance requirements. It is now up to you to utilize our software to fully enforce your file sharing compliance. Our software is very user-friendly and it includes many administrative tools for you to ensure that:

  1. Your transmissions are secured end to end,
  2. Your users are forced to comply with everything from password strength to encrypting transmissions,
  3. Your folders are secured so that only the appropriate users have access with the appropriate permissions, and
  4. Your auditors can verify everything.
