Advantco SFTP Adapter for SAP NetWeaver® PI/PO


SAP Certified SAP Endorsed Apps


SFTP, or secure FTP, is a method of transferring files over a secure, encrypted connection. Unlike standard FTP, it encrypts both commands and data, preventing passwords and sensitive information from being transmitted in clear text over the public network. The security in SFTP comes through its integration with SSH, which provides an encrypted transport layer over which the SFTP commands are executed.

Advantco SFTP Adapter is certified integration for SAP NetWeaver®. It is a native JCA Adapter which plugs into the existing J2EE Adapter Framework of SAP PI. The adapter works like the standard SAP PI/PO FTP adapter and offers the same content conversion functionality, but instead uses SSH to encrypt the file transfer.

Advantco SFTP Adapter also complies with FIPS 140-2 standard for use by the US and Canadian governments, as well as other regulated industries (such as financial and health-care institutions), to obtain the required security for data transfer.
