Your Files.com site is a full-featured SFTP server, allowing inbound SFTP connections from your users, partners, applications, and systems. We also provide the ability for your Files.com site to connect (outbound) to other SFTP servers.
Using this native Files.com integration, customers can seamlessly integrate Files.com platform capabilities with any other SFTP server. Files.com adds powerful access and permission controls over file interactions with other SFTP servers and allows you to take advantage of all of the Files.com platform capabilities.
Enhance, secure, and expand your business processes by connecting other SFTP server content with Files.com workflow features such as Inboxes, Share Links, GPG, Automations, more file transfer protocol options (FTP, AS2, WebDAV, etc.), authentication and authorization (Single-Sign-On, Active Directory, LDAP, SAML, etc.), online co-editing, iPaaS integrations, and a rich selection of notification options (webhooks, Slack, Amazon SNS.)
SFTP servers can be connected as a Remote Server Mount, making your SFTP server content available in real time, or connected as a Remote Server Sync, allowing you to push, pull, or synchronize files between any SFTP server and other Files.com storage locations. Files.com acts as your SFTP client.
Integrating Files.com with other SFTP servers allows your users to access SFTP server content through Files.com, using a web browser, FTP(S), AS2, WebDAV, the Files.com Desktop App, the Files.com Mobile App, or the Files.com Command Line (CLI) App.
Files.com can integrate with SFTP servers, providing secure encrypted data transmission between the two platforms. We also provide options to allow less secure integration, using older SFTP ciphers, to allow connectivity to legacy SFTP servers.
Files.com operates three types of SFTP integrations.
Files.com itself can operate as an inbound SFTP server, allowing you and your users to connect to your Files.com account via SFTP. This allows you to use SFTP to access any portion of your Files.com account, even folders that are syncing to other providers, such as Dropbox, Box, Amazon S3, etc.
Secondly, you can Mount an external SFTP site directly into Files.com as a folder. Files.com acts as an SFTP Client in this context, making that SFTP site available via the Files.com web interface, API, SDKs, and even other inbound SFTP connections.
Third, you can configure a scheduled Sync, where Files.com will synchronize its copy of a folder or folders on a one-way or two-way basis with the external SFTP server.
Pricing & Support
Files.com's integration for SFTP is a core integration of Files.com, maintained by the Files.com team, and is fully supported as part of your Files.com subscription. Any Files.com customer on the Power plan and up can use outbound SFTP as part of your existing subscription.
