SFTP for Financial Teams

Posted by Jayden Bartram on Mar 4, 2022 3:05:00 PM

SFTP is not going anywhere, due to its secure and compliant nature (HIPAA and PCI) it is growing as a system-to-system secure file transfer protocol. However, there is a strong requirement for an external party to share files via SFTP but have them received by a human for processing, especially in finance. This is where Couchdrop’s Cloud SFTP can assist.


Couchdrop connects to your existing storage

Couchdrop can bridge the technical solution of SFTP while making it simple and easy for non-technical financial teams to access the data and share it back. This can be done through Couchdrop’s Cloud SFTP native integration with your cloud storage (SharePoint, Dropbox, Google Workspace, Box, and Egnyte) where an external party sends a file by SFTP and the file is then received directly into a folder within your cloud storage.

As the file goes directly to your cloud storage, it enables the ability for your non-technical team to use the native cloud storage sync agent to sync the file directly to their computer to then take action on. Everything can be done through the intuitive web interface.

Full control of your data

An added benefit, as you are bringing your own storage, this means that Couchdrop does not store your data at rest. Rather you do, which provides full control and the ability to monitor your data without relying on third-party tools or being locked in with an SFTP vendor.

Notifications and alerting for file actions

Additionally, Couchdrop’s Cloud SFTP offers alerting for files received. Once a file is uploaded via SFTP, a notification can be emailed or sent to the likes of Microsoft Teams to notify a team that a file has arrived and that can now access the data.

Secure automated file transfers

Finally, as part of the solution, there is an Automation and File Workflow aspect, so that if the file is sent encrypted with PGP, Couchdrop can decrypt the file in stream, or if you want to create a backup of the file on upload, Couchdrop can create a copy of the file in another folder or on a completely different cloud platform.
