Efficient And Secure Data Transfer using AWS Transfer Family

AWS Transfer Family is a fully managed AWS service that securely scales to transfer files in and out of AWS. This service allows a convenient interface to manage objects on Amazon S3 and Amazon EFS using well-known file transfer protocols such as the following:

  • Secure Shell (SSH) File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) – file transfer over SSH
  • File Transfer Protocol Secure (FTPS) – file transfer with TLS encryption
  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP) – unencrypted file transfer

Why do customers choose Amazon Transfer Family?

Clients from Financial, Banking, and Healthcare require the bulk transfer of data from different data providers and customers. It can be challenging to use traditional transfer solutions that do not scale on-demand, causing data inconsistencies and making it hard to maintain and manage on a daily basis.

AWS Transfer Family is a cloud-based solution that is scalable, secure, flexible, and quick to deploy with no overhead maintenance. It supports the transfer of data at scale to S3, EFS, which is secure, encrypted, and accessed by authorized personnel. With no heavy lifting, AWS Transfer Family's ready-to-use solution helps consumers focus on business objectives, data analytics, and innovation using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
