Work With SFTP Servers as Local Virtual Drives

Built with the same attention to quality and security that has made /n software the most trusted source for communications software components, SFTP Drive simplifies working with files stored on remote servers by enabling you to access them as if they were stored locally on your machine. This eliminates the need to download and upload files you need to work with. Accessing remote files via a drive can also greatly simplify script or application code.

For additional protection of data in flight, FIPS 140-2 support can be enabled in Windows editions. FIPS support is enabled via an application-level setting and requires a special license; please contact licensing@nsoftware.com for more information.
