Government agencies can now improve their IT operations by using SFTP Gateway to easily and securely transfer files and data to Amazon S3

SFTP Gateway is now live on AWS US GovCloud! Our product allows enterprises of all sizes, and now government agencies, easily and securely transfer files to Amazon S3. The product is available on the AWS Marketplace.

SFTP Gateway is the easiest, most cost-effective way to transfer files to Amazon S3. We’ve helped nearly 2000 private sector customers move their files to the AWS Cloud easily and securely, and we’re looking forward to helping government agencies do the same.

SFTP Gateway is a secure-by-default, pre-configured SFTP server that saves uploaded files to an Amazon S3 bucket. Data is encrypted in transit (via SFTP, OpenSSH, HTTPS, and TLS 1.2) and at rest (via SSE-S3, SSE-KMS, or SSE-C). SFTP users are configured with SSH public key authentication by default. And logs are centralized in CloudWatch to help with auditing.

SFTP Gateway can be deployed as a single server or as a highly-available infrastructure to accommodate thousands of users. To achieve this, the product uses an Autoscaling Group, Network Load Balancer, and Elastic File System via a CloudFormation template.

SFTP Gateway includes a web portal to allow for easy user creation and management. SFTP users can be created and SSH keys, encryption options, and S3 upload locations can all be managed. SFTP Gateway provides RESTful and command line interfaces for easier scripting for integration into existing user provisioning systems.

“The secure transfer of files and data to the cloud can be a big hurdle,” said Jeff Thorn. “We’re excited to help government agencies achieve more efficient and secure file transfer to AWS with SFTP Gateway.”
