SSH File Transfer Protocol, also known as Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), is a network protocol that provides file access, file transfer, and file management through a secure channel. SFTP establishes security by encrypting both authentication credentials and data files being transferred. It is the Rosetta Stone of integration. At DataBlend, it is one of the most common integration points for clients. For example, via SFTP you can automate a flat file to any secure location and manipulate however you want.
How does DataBlend bring value when API isn’t possible?
When Application Programming Interface (API) isn’t possible, DataBlend can integrate (and automate) any system that can produce a file and map data in the targeted system.
A few benefits of connecting via SFTP:
- SFTP can be connected quickly and bypass most of the implementation process
- It is a secure and flexible way of transferring data
- It allows you to remain in control
SFTP is a great option when you can’t get a direct system. DataBlend can take any file structure and make it work.
