SFTP Use Cases
Cloud SFTP offers the secure means to get files from your organisation or another to your cloud endpoint, quick and easy. Below are some of the more common use cases that our users use our SFTP solution for:

  • Have external users share files directly to a specific folder in your cloud storage endpoint with a seperate user token, where you can control access permissions (read only, read write, write only). We also support you making it your own and using your own domain in place of couchdrop.io.

  • Use any of your standard SFTP applications (Cyberduck, FileZilla etc.) to access your storage space, no need to download heavy, bloated software packages just so you can get your files, to your storage.

  • Automated and manual system backups
