What Is FTPS for Remote Data Backup Storage

FTPS (also known as File Transfer Protocol Secure and FTP-SSL) is righteously recognized as a powerful version of FTP extended with the TLS (Transport Layer Security) and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) cryptographic protocols.

Advantages of Backup to FTPS

An FTPS storage provides some advantages over traditional FTP services, including not only more protected storage itself but also a healthy level of protection during data transfer. It can be especially actual when transferring sensitive data via the open Internet or from some public location.

Advantages of Backup to FTPS

In matters of disadvantages, FTPS brings up to no obstacles or problems to a user over a traditional FTP solution. Slight disadvantages can include a bit more complex connection setup and a little slower speed of data exchange, due to transitional actions.

FTPS Backup Software Opportunities for Remote Backup

In terms of safety, FTPS is friendly for backup, but data management options provided by standard file-exchanging tools can seem a bit dull and unsuitable for backup purposes. To expand these options, you can use specialized FTPS server backup software, designed for such tasks as remote backup to FTPS.

Benefits of Backup from FTPS

FTPS protocol solves one of the most serious problems of FTP: lack of security for data transfer (generally, FTP-transferred data is unencrypted, which means there is jeopardy of illegal access). Main advantages of FTPS over FTP are:

  • Good level of extra data-transferring protection;
  • Almost the same efficiency and speed as common FTP (compared to more complex protocols).

Crucial Features of FTPS

With its TLS/SSL, FTPS provides server-side public key authentication and client-side authorization certificates. It supports ciphers AES, RC4, RC2, Triple DES, and DES. In addition to advanced data protection, FTPS backup storage provide users with a bunch of other advantages:

  • Macros and scripting capabilities for data management;
  • Low consumption of system resources;
  • Functionality for adding items to a "queue" of uploads/downloads;
  • No size limits for single transfers to or from data storage.
