SecureFX is a secure file transfer application. The application supports SFTP and SSL-based protocols as well as SCP and FTP. FIPS Mode is optional and uses a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic library. This allows only FIPS-approved algorithms. Compliance with other regulations like the HIPPA or the SOX is also possible. Some of the persistent hassles such as connecting to many different servers, resuming multi-file transfers, and getting through network proxies and firewalls are handled by the tool easily. The features that help manage the transfers include the ability to complete interrupted transfers, multiple file transfers and the ability to keep files at different servers synchronized. Upload, download, and mirror files, with filtering to include or exclude files or file types are also available. Configurations for multiple sites can be stored. The tool has a command line interface that can help make things automatic and unattended.
The interface probably would take a little time to get familiar with for newbies, but once you get a hang of it, it is easy to work with. The tabbed interface is easy to learn and you can run more than one session of transfers from these different tabs. A log window shows you the progress of transfers if you happen to be watching. The necessary controls are arranged across the top in a tool bar. Whether you need secure access to your website FTP or other servers across the organization, this is a feature rich tool that complies with security regulations of the federal government as well. It can be a great help for web masters and network administrators.
