Strong Data Encryption for Secure File Transfer

Data transferred between a client and host using an nonsecure protocol like Telnet or FTP is susceptible to eavesdropping or data sniffing. Usernames and passwords can be intercepted, compromising not only the security of your data, but also the security of your network. To protect data in transit from eavesdropping attacks, you need to use a secure file transfer protocol that supports strong data encryption.

Supported Data Encryption Ciphers

VanDyke Software's secure file transfer client, SecureFX®, supports a number of secure file transfer protocols, including:

  • SFTP
  • SCP
  • FTP over SSL

These secure protocols use Secure Shell-supported encryption ciphers to protect your data in transit. Supported encryption ciphers include:

  • 3DES
  • AES-192
  • AES-192-CTR
  • AES-256
  • AES-256-CTR
  • Blowfish
  • DES
  • RC4
  • Twofish 
       

AES replaced DES as the U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Advanced Encryption Standard. When SecureFX is running in FIPS mode, the AES algorithm is used by default, which may help you maintain compliance with FIPS 140-2.
