What you get when you upgrade your managed file transfer solution with v3.5 of SFTP Gateway

  • Customizable SFTP Encryption Algorithms: You can now override the default SFTP encryption algorithms directly from the Admin UI – it’s as simple as checking a box. Check out the encryption algorithms video below to see it in action.


  • Upgraded SSH Key Generation: Admins can now generate ECDSA and ED25519 key pairs, offering more secure and efficient cryptographic options for user SSH keys.
  • Password Security Improvements: Incorporating industry-leading password libraries to assess password strength and display adherence to password policies. Additionally, changes to password requirements for admin users bolster the security of administrative access.
  • Full-Width UI Design: By removing gutters and allowing the UI to span the full width of the browser, the Admin UI offers a more streamlined and user-friendly experience.
  • User Permissions and Cloud Connections Optimization: Pre-calculating these elements significantly speeds up SFTP user connection times.
  • Insightful User Management: Adding the last login date to the users table and requiring current passwords for administrative changes ensures better management and security oversight.
  • Alibaba OSS Support: Version 3.5 introduces Alibaba OSS as a new Cloud Connection type, expanding the product’s compatibility with major cloud service providers.
  • Azure Cloud Connection Enhancement: A new field to specify the HNS (Hierarchical Namespace) setting in Azure Cloud Connections improves integration flexibility with Azure storage solutions.
  • Memory and Infrastructure Improvements: With an updated AWS base image and the enabling of AWS IMDSv2, the backend infrastructure is more robust and secure. Memory allocation enhancements ensure the product scales to meet your needs.
  • Load Balancer and Client IP Handling: Improved support for load balancers, including added protections against Client IP address spoofing.
