TurboFTP Sync Service Module Automates Scheduled FTP and SFTP Download/Upload and Synchronization

TurboFTP

TurboFTP features intuitive and user-friendly interfaces for performing FTP operations, and features a powerful Sync Service Module to automate scheduled FTP/SFTP download/upload and synchronization of local and remote folders.

FTP requires two ports per transfer – a control and data connection – making this mode of communication particularly challenging when placed behind firewalls or NAT gateways.

Sync Service Module

TurboFTP Sync Service Module provides an economical and effective way to automate FTP file transfer and synchronization between local and remote directory structures. This generic NT service starts automatically upon system boot time without requiring user logon; perfect for IT departments looking to automate routine data transfer tasks without tedious manual labor.

The device supports SSL (implicit/explicit SSL) and SSH2 secure FTP connections, providing strong server authentication, industrial strength encryption and file integrity protection over insecure networks. Furthermore, it is capable of efficiently transferring large files – up to multiple gigabytes in size – between servers.

Folder Synchronizer is an intuitive visual comparison tool that makes it simple and straightforward to synchronize local and remote folder contents, showing clearly displayed lists of files that need to be moved, updated or removed according to user-defined rules. After an effective comparison the destination directory can be updated immediately by simply clicking.

The Task Scheduler comes equipped with comprehensive scheduling options to allow both FTP transfers and automated folder synchronization to be scheduled automatically. Once a task has been completed, an E-mail report can be sent out to one or multiple recipients as a completion report. Furthermore, advanced transfer queue management reserves bandwidth for other activities during download/upload or synchronization activities and preserves server file time when downloading files – with transfer speeds reaching 4GB on an NTFS partition.

OpenPGP functions provide essential protection for business data during transit or storage, including encryption/decryption/signing/verifying files using OpenPGP standard (RFC 4880). Furthermore, an integrated key chain manager allows importation or creation of compatible keys from other PGP software or an additional key creation feature provides added peace of mind. Built-in compression/decompress utilities enable extraction and creation of Zip, GZip and TAR archives, along with protection mechanisms like Auto Dial, Smart Keep Alive, Auto Reconnect and broken transfer resume to safeguard against interruption and stall. Furthermore, this device supports Internet proxies, application level firewalls, NAT devices as well as connecting remotely through proxy servers which require password-based authentication.

Secure FTP Client

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a networking protocol used by computers to upload and download files over the Internet. Using a client-server model, FTP provides security features like user authentication, data encryption and digital signatures – often making use of FTP in tandem with web browsers for remote system access.

FTP may offer an easy and straightforward means of file transfer, but its security can be problematic for larger businesses that require tight control over access to sensitive information. When this is the case, SFTP offers more secure file transmission by encrypting all data transferred between client and server including usernames and passwords as well as host keys used for authenticating files – this feature makes SFTP especially suitable for companies obligated to adhere to HIPAA regulations; its use ensures integrity of confidential patient health records.

SFTP differs from FTP in that it does not require a separate data channel, making it simpler to use behind firewalls. Furthermore, its support of multiple character sets and languages makes it a more secure alternative than FTP which only accepts ASCII text files.

Human error is the single greatest threat posed by FTP. Just one mistake could send sensitive files directly to an insecure individual and expose your business to major risks. With SFTP, however, this risk can be reduced as all data is encrypted and requires user authentication for secure transfer.

TurboFTP provides robust interruption and stall protection with its suite of mechanisms such as Smart Keep Alive, Auto Reconnect and broken transfer resume. If a connection to a remote host is lost it automatically reconnects if one exists ad supports both SOCKS 4/4a and SOCKS 5 proxies.

TurboFTP’s Folder Synchronizer goes beyond its native synchronization module by comparing local and FTP/SFTP directory structures, making synchronizing them an effortless process. Furthermore, you can use it to run programs before or after scheduled FTP or SFTP sync tasks, as well as monitor local folders to upload any newly dropped or updated files directly.

SDK

TurboFTP SDK is an ActiveX/.Net component providing complete FTP client capabilities including SFTP support and SSL/TLS for secure file uploads/downloads with resumed file uploads/downloads, plus SSL/TLS and resumable file uploads/downloads. The component also offers broad compatibility across remote servers and directory listing formats including UNIX-compatible platforms and OS/2 file systems such as VAX Novell Netware 4 or later and Apple OS. TurboFTP also supports on-the-fly data compression using MODE Z compression with automatic reconnection should the connection drops off and offers larger file transfers exceeding 4Gb capacity while offering firewall support including HTTP proxy, SOCKS 4a/SOCKS 5 with properties like ConnectionTimeout/LoginRetryDelay to be set manually by users.

PGP

PGP encryption is an integral component of secure file transfer, protecting data in transit between systems both internally and on the Internet. While FTPS and SFTP sessions provide adequate protection, once data arrives at an FTP server outside your firewall it could become vulnerable to theft or attacks; PGP file encryption secures it by encrypting it prior to sending over the wire, and allows recipients to decrypt using their private key for decryption upon receipt.

TurboFTP features an extensive set of PGP capabilities designed to help businesses safely move files between internal and external systems. TurboFTP’s Sync Service Module automates scheduled FTP transfers, SFTP upload or downloads, folder synchronization between local and remote folders as well as pre/post transfer OpenPGP encryption – ideal for businesses requiring high speed data transfers and high security measures.

TurboFTP is an incredibly user-friendly yet powerful secure FTP client program for Windows, featuring an in-built Folder Synchronizer to quickly compare, view and synchronize local and remote folders on-the-fly. TurboFTP also supports an extensive variety of schedule tasks and NT services for FTP transfers as well as bi-directional synchronization as well as sending notifications when tasks complete – making it ideal for mission critical corporate file transfers.
