Software Downloads for Secure File Transfer (SFTP) and Secure Copy (SCP) Supported by the University


Software Downloads for Secure File Transfer (SFTP) and Secure Copy (SCP) are secure methods of transferring files between computers on a network. Information sent through these methods is encrypted before sending across the Internet, which prevents anyone who might intercept the traffic from deciphering the content of the information. They are useful for sharing files with others, using data on more than one system, and downloading files for backup onto a second system.
