    FTP or file transfer protocol is used to transfer files over TCP/IP network. FTP is not encrypted and can be used anonymously. Where as SFTP or Secure File Transfer Protocol allows the access, transfer and management of file over data stream. SFTP is encrypted and SFTP is platform independent, that is SFTP is available on varied platforms.

    Indeed SFTP is more secure way of connection than FTP as it makes use of SSH. Unlike FTP the SFTP makes use of only single channel to transfer both data and command.

    SFTP is considered more secure than FTP as SFTP encrypts the session that prevents the detection of username, password or any other login credentials you have transmitted. Hence SFTP is more preferred than FTP.

    FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and SFTP (Secure File Transfer protocol) both are mainstream protocols used for transferring files between client and server. FTP is an old data transfer protocol that is less secure as compared to SFTP. SFTP connections ensure that data is securely transferred. This data transfer protocol encrypts the connection between your computer and the FTP server.

    FTP was the first file protocol and is less secure, while SFTP stands for secure file transfer protocol, and as the name suggests is more secure than FTP.

    SFTP is FTP with a better security functionality.


    When transmitting files, SFTP does it better in terms of security as it encrypts your data during transmission whereas FTP does not.
    SFTP is much more firewall- friendly than FTP which is a very big PLUS to security conscious individuals.

    FTP and SFTP are the file transferring protocols. The basic difference between FTP and SFTP is that FTP does not provide a secure channel to transfer files whereas the SFTP does.

    FTP and SFTP are two different file transfer protocols and the major difference between the two is the security associated with the file transfer. FTP was the first file protocol and is less secure, while SFTP stands for secure file transfer protocol, and as the name suggests is more secure than FTP.
