Hi all, I am running a large scale business and some time I have to transfer large and very important data files to my business partner. I fear about my data because there are many of my business competitors who will definitely try to steal my important data. So there is huge amount of risk involved in sharing my important data on Internet. I recently heard about secure file transfer technique from my friend who is working in well established software company. Does anyone have any idea about what is Secure File Transfer (SFT) service and how does it work?

Hi, I am a programmer and I agree with your doubts. SFT is a secure way to move files between almost any two computers across open networks. Secure FTP (http://www.jscape.com/secureftpserver/) is very useful when you require high speed file transfer method. It greatly simplifies the process of securely exchanging data with trading partners and automation of file transfer processes, resulting in increased productivity and immediate return on investment.
Hope this will help you!
Good luck!

Are you looking for a secure ftp client or server?

For a client, I would recommend winscp
http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

Its free and very good.

For a server, it would depend on your OS.. google for sftp server and your OS.

Good luck
