SFTP or Secure File Transfer Protocol is a standard communication protocol used for the transfer of computer files from a server to a client on a computer network. It requires a connection between the client and the server, but unlike FTP, SFTP transfer files over a secure channel. At Breeze, we only support the SFTP connections to keep the data safe and secure during transfer.
