Secure, browser-based transfers without a web server.
EFT’s HTTPS add-on module allows a secure connection to be set up to anyone in minutes — all they need is a web browser. The HTTPS module adds the HTTPS protocol to EFT Server SMB, enabling support for browser-based transfers without having to install a web server.
All you need is a web browser
Extending a secure file transfer solution to trading partners, suppliers, and clients can be difficult, especially if they discover they have to install extra software or pay for installation of expensive proprietary pieces just to be able to work with your system. A smart solution is to let users transfer with something they already have: a web browser.
HTTPS is used to access secure Web servers when authentication and encrypted communication is desired. Using HTTPS instead of HTTP directs the message to a secure port number rather than the default Web port number of 80. HTTPS encrypts the session data using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol, which ensures protection from eavesdroppers and man-in-the-middle attacks.
Enabling HTTPS transfers in EFT is as easy as selecting a checkbox. All user and folder settings are inherited from the server settings. Standard Browse and Upload buttons make copying a file to EFT as easy as adding a picture to an eBay auction. EFT’s HTTPS support enables cost-effective security for file exchange that’s easy for your trading partners to use.
