Best-In-Class Security

Built-In Local File Encryption
OpenPGP encryption secures files and folders locally. Proven encryption technology protects sensitive data from misuse resulting from a lost or stolen computer. Secures files used as email and IM attachments or stored on laptops, networks, or removable media.

OpenPGP Encryption
Encrypt a file before transferring it to a remote server. OpenPGP mode automatically encrypts and signs (or decrypts) files prior to up/download. Double-layer protection when used in addition to transfer encryption over SSL/SSH.

Integrated File Encryption
OpenPGP encrypts files for secure file management before and after transfer. Fully integrated public-key/private-key file encryption supports AES and 3DES ciphers, offers signature (key) strengths from 1,024 to 4,096 bits, and supportsRSA and Diffie-Hellman key types.

Non-Repudiation & Compression with MOVEit DMZ Server
Built-in automatic end-to-end file non-repudiation and compression between WS_FTP Professional and MOVEit DMZ server.

Keyboard-Interactive Authentication
Client support for dynamic client-server authentication. Users can authenticate and connect to SSH servers that require connecting clients to respond to server defined prompts for authentication, in addition to username.

Configure Email Notifications for SMTP Server Authentication
Users can easily set-up email notifications to be automatically sent when a file transfer occurs. Email notifications can now be configured for SMTP server authentication.

Strongest Transport Encryption
256-bit AES encryption protects files from being compromised during transfer over SSL / FTPS, SSH / SFTP, and HTTPS protocol connections. The highest level of encryption found in any commercially available file transfer client.

FIPS 140-2 Validated Cryptography
Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) approved and validated cryptography up to and including 256-bit AES encryption over SSL, SSH, and SCP2 protocols and OpenPGP file encryption.

Guaranteed Delivery
Built-in industry-leading file integrity algorithms, including CRC32, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512, ensure that files have not been compromised during transport, and that the source and destination files are exact matches.



Post Transfer File Automation
New file workflow capabilities enable users to schedule a post transfer action, such as deleting, moving, or renaming the source file after it has been transferred. Ten built-in macros for dynamically changing file names including MM, YY, YYYY, HH, MM, SS and more.

Safely archive your most important folders and files. Schedule and compress backups to any location or device, such as USB or DVD drives, network directories, server connections, FTP sites, or Internet hosting services.

Files can be automatically compressed into .zip format before uploading.

Keep records of your WS_FTP usage with Transfer Manager, Transfer History, and Connection Log.

One-time or recurring file transfers can be scheduled to occur automatically.

Synch to any location, virtually any device, drive, or server. Easily define which files get transferred and how new or updated files are handled.

Use of our programming scripting tool to automate recurring transfer tasks.

Email Notifications
Enable automatic email notifications to alert others that a transfer has occurred, and to verify that your transfer has been successful.
