FTP or File Transfer Protocol has been around since the 70's as a robust file transfer mechanism and despite the move towards rsync and WebDAV (See our WebDrive Service) FTP is still commonplace today. At GEN we can offer single or multi user FTP, Secure FTP (SFTP) or SSHFTP (FTP over SSH) with varying storage allowances for distributing software and data. With Multiple SFTP Services we can provide redundancy and mirroring to ensure 100% uptime. 

Want more security? then combine this with cutting edge filesystem level encryption to further protect your data. 

  • FTP is supported in most browsers and even most mobile devices. 
  • SFTP is supported in common software such as FileZilla, Transport etc. 
  • SSHFTP is supported in FileZilla and some select software packages and provides outstanding two stage encryption. 

With any GEN Hosted File Transfer Service you can further enhance the solution with data synchronisation between rsync, windows or more contemporary services such as WebDAV. 

With a FTP Service from GEN you can use any or all of the available protocols in endless combinations to provide exactly the service needed. Contact us Today to discuss your needs.
