FTP vs SFTP


Recommended Posts

Hi, @Tayler Odling!

The biggest difference between FTP and SFTP is encryption (SSH file transfer protocol) included in SFTP. When you send data with FTP, it isn't encrypted. Note: You can use a secure connection, but your file and the transmission, in general, won't be encrypted. On the contrary, SFTP doesn't transfer data in clear text as it is encrypted. 

If you decide to stay with FTP, try using passwords and additional security options, like requesting passwords to access the transferred data. If you choose to set up SFTP, use this step-by-step guide https://www.nakivo.com/blog/how-to-build-powershell-tools-to-setup-sftp/   

Let me know if you have any additional questions.
