Our SFTP service provides users with a secure method to send, receive and store valuable company data over the internet. It runs on a cloud server dedicated to each customer, providing businesses with a secure and reliable file-sharing system. Here are some benefits:
Public key authentication is a secure way to prove identity online, and is a vital part of information security technology for many companies.
Public key authentication uses computer generated numbers called ‘keys’. Two keys are required – a ‘private key’ known only to you, and a ‘public key’ that can be accessed by anyone. The two keys work together, so a message encrypted with the private key can only be decrypted with the public key and vice versa.
As well as needing the correct username and password, public-key authentication requires that the user must also connect using the specific computer that the private key is installed on or authentication will fail. All Secure FTP hosting solutions from Hyve support public-key authentication to provide this additional layer of security.
Our Secure FTP solutions are compatible with the following protocols using the ports listed. Port 21 (FTP) & Port 80 (HTTP) are blocked by default at both server and firewall level to prevent unsecured access.
|FTPS||FTP over SSL||Port 990|
|SFTP||SSH File Transfer Protocol/FTP over SSH||Port 22|
|HTTPS||SSL/Secure File Transfer via Web Browser||Port 443|
When you are creating a shortlist of companies for your next cloud hosting project, it’s important to look into their compliance and accreditations.
Hyve has worked diligently to secure externally audited certifications in ISO 27001(Information Security), ISO 27017 (Cloud Security) and ISO9001 (Management systems). We have also been awarded PCI-DSS compliance, are Cyber Essentials Plus certified and are part of the government G-Cloud 12 framework, as well as a Crown Commercial supplier.
As a hosting provider that hosts some of the UK’s critical infrastructure, we comply fully with the NIS Regulation 2018, which was formulated by the NCSC (part of GCHQ) to boost the overall level of security (both cyber and physical) of network and digital information systems.
Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a secure method for transferring files over the internet.
SFTP securely parcels everything sent between the network and server into an encrypted package, including the passwords you enter to access the server. Using this method is called tunnelling, as it sends the data down a closed encrypted path, like a tunnel.
SFTP is a popular product for businesses that need to securely transfer data, especially financial services companies, the legal industry, payroll data companies etc.
FTP transmissions are sent in plain text, making it simple for hackers to pry on a network and digest data that is transmitted across it, whereas Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) ensures that all files only travel in encrypted form.
SFTP provides a much more secure connection and error handling than FTP. Using encryption and tunnelling through one channel as opposed to two means that the connection is always secured, and no clear data such as text passwords are transferred.
