FTPS Server 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.

It was designed to solve 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).

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 servers provide users with a bunch of other advantages:

  • Macros and scripting capabilities for data management
  • Low system resource consumption
  • Functionality for adding items to a “queue” of uploads/downloads;
  • No size limits for single transfers to the server.

Choosing Off-site Backup Server Software: Commercial VS Freeware

Comparing commercial and freeware FTPS backup solutions you can see that the last ones have a nice advantage: they are free. But commercial solutions might also provide users with useful options which freeware might be generally missing.

Let’s see how the featured software accomplishes the mission:

  • Flexible functionality extension. Handy Backup exploits a novel plug-in system which allows users to get the functionality extended for careful backup of popular apps and data types (say, for MS SQL Server and ODBC-compatible database backup). Plus, with the Handy Backup SDK users can create their own plug-ins, getting experience and karma update.
