Key Features

OpenPGP encrypt 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 supports RSA and Diffie-Hellman key types.

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 or Internet hosting services.

The WS_FTP Synchronization utility enables you synchronize (or “mirror”) files and file directories between local files, remote sites, network drives, and USB drives with minimal intervention.

When FIPS mode is enabled, WS_FTP encrypts any files sent via SSH, FTP with SSL, or HTTPS with a FIPS 140-2 validated cipher.

Guaranteed delivery ensures your files are sent to your intended destination, so you know where your files are at all times.

Easy to set up email notifications so you can stay informed about file transfer activity.

Connect to and transfer files over HTTP/S connections with Microsoft IIS and Apache web servers with full file/folder listings and navigation.

WS_FTP Professional is available as a single user license with either 30 day or 1 year tech support, or as a 5-user license with 1 year tech support.
