Using SFTP Gateway with an employee recognition and rewards app

Recognize offers an employee recognition and rewards app.

There are countless ways you can leverage SFTP Gateway.

Businesses in dozens of industries rely on it as a simple, secure and affordable way for their customers to upload data to applications they’ve built in the cloud. Recognize, a Berkeley, California-based company, is one organization leveraging SFTP Gateway to do this.

Recognize offers companies an employee engagement platform, complete with peer recognition, nominations, rewards, award certificates and much more. The Recognize app is designed to help increase employee engagement and retention, through a social, value-driven employee recognition and rewards program. 

Building a solution like this involves moving lots of data and that’s where SFTP Gateway comes in.

Recognize uses SFTP Gateway as part of their automated provisioning system, allowing customers to transfer their company directories into their application. These directories can be large and SFTP Gateway gives Recognize users a simple way to SFTP the data to the cloud. 

96% of employees on Recognize feel more engaged with their company. 84% of employees understand company values better.

Recognize has been using SFTP Gateway on AWS since Version 1, utilizing features like the auto-detection and transfer of files. More recently, with Version 3 available, they’ve used the web UI for easy connection management. 

SFTP Gateway v3 has also helped Recognize meet security requirements set by their customers, allowing them to transfer streams of data rather than writing to the SFTP hard drive. Security is critical when you’re moving information about your employees and Thorn Technologies is happy to help give Recognize a safe, easy and cost-effective way to do it. 

SFTP Gateway gives users real-time access to cloud storage locations, such as Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage and Google Cloud Storage, through any SFTP client. Servers can talk to cloud storage locations via SFTP, just like they’re any other server, without the need for expensive and time-consuming solutions.  

Do you have an idea for the next great app? If you can dream up something that involves accessing cloud storage locations, SFTP Gateway can help you make it happen. Try it out for yourself in the Amazon, Azure or Google Cloud Platform marketplaces.
