Secure file transfers are important for every organization, but banks and financial institutions are entrusted with critical details that makes security even more indispensable.

Couchdrop makes sure those concerns aren’t an issue with enhanced protections for file transfers.

Using Couchdrop as a financial institution

File transfers with security like a vault

Couchdrop improves security with several helpful features that help your data stay locked down.

The platform is SOC2 compliant and meets the strict standards for access controls, change management, system operations, and risk mitigation. Third-party audits are done regularly to ensure the standards are still met.

Couchdrop also never stores your data at any point. Instead, you bring your own storage and connect it to Couchdrop, which then moves data between your connected storage. This means Couchdrop doesn’t have direct access to the data and it is stored entirely on your own platforms.

A comprehensive reporting system keeps detailed records of everything done within Couchdrop as well. This is useful for auditing purposes as well as seeing which files were accessed by which users, including timestamps for each event.

Bridge the gap from banking systems to cloud storage

Couchdrop connects to over 30 cloud storage platforms as well as on-premise file servers. This lets it act as a bridge for files from your banking system; the generated file is saved to the server and Couchdrop moves it to the cloud for further action.

Automate important file actions

Automations can greatly increase efficiency by handling this process automatically. An automation can target all files in a folder, or only files that meet specific parameters like having a certain filename.

For example, a data feed could save a file of daily transaction data to a specific folder on an on-prem server. An automation can copy that file into another storage platform such as SharePoint in a presentation folder. It could then rename that file and append a timestamp.

Move only the files you want into your target storage, and do it automatically with Couchdrop.

Lock down file access

Financial institutions can use several features in Couchdrop that lock down file access so files can be moved to cloud storage and only be accessed by the appropriate users.

Users are created directly in the web portal, where they can be given restrictions on file actions, such as read-only, write-only, or read/write access. These can be granted account-wide or on a per-folder basis.

Other access controls include allowing or denying access to Inboxes, specific transfer protocols like FTP, restricting to a specific IP address like an in-office workstation, and more.

And for security or compliance audits, Couchdrop includes robust and comprehensive reporting including error logs and full access reports.

Case Study: Inzata

“A catch all for 100% of the things we need to use SFTPs for.”

Inzata is a data analytics platform, and its customers submit data in all sorts of different formats – Excel files, CSVs… the works. They had a way of receiving flat files for data pipelines through FileZilla, but non-tech minded customers couldn’t use it easily and it was labour intensive.
