Important product update: There will be no further development
In 1996 when AbsoluteFTP was first released, FTP was the best
choice for transferring files on the emerging public network called
the internet. As the popularity of FTP grew, AbsoluteFTP's features
and capabilities were extended to keep up with ever more sophisticated
In 1998, VanDyke Software introduced SecureFX® to address
increasing concern over FTP's inherent lack of security. Supporting
the Secure Shell File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) as well as conventional
FTP, SecureFX is a multi-protocol application for all of your file
We have made the decision to cease active development of AbsoluteFTP
and concentrate on enhancing SecureFX. Secure file transfer has
become a business requirement in many industries, spurred by legislative
initiatives like HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley
Banking Act. Even industries not impacted by these regulations
have acknowledged the importance of guarding the confidentiality
of information related to their employees, partners, and customers.
We will continue to make AbsoluteFTP installers available for
download for existing customers but will no longer sell new licenses
for the application, effective May 11, 2006. We plan to continue
offering support for AbsoluteFTP customers through May 11, 2007.
