Secure File Transfer- Overview

Secure File Transfer (SFT) is a statewide Office of Technology Services (OTech) shared service, providing a complete, secure, fully regulatory compliant, enterprise integration and consolidation solution for moving files and managing transfers from any Internet-connected client, private IP network or OTech-hosted server to any other server or end user. Using standard secure protocols (such as FTP/s, HTTP/s, SSH-FTP), SFT provides a consolidation platform for all your department's file transfer applications and processes. Replace all other means and methods of moving files with SFT.

The Secure File Transfer service is offered to any California state, county or city agency or department and their external, public or private sector business partners.

Secure File Transfer, known in the industry as Managed File Transfer, is replacing VPN connections (IPSec tunnels), magnetic tape, tape couriers and tape storage solutions, paper and postal service delivery, CD packaging processes, standard FTP, and other non-managed, unsecured methods of exchanging information in file-based formats. Consolidating with SFT makes good business sense and complies with the purpose and intent of AB 2408.

The OTech Secure File Transfer service is not a data storage service or solution. However, SFT can utilize customer-purchased storage to create transfer/storage solutions to meet any need. Contact your Customer Delivery Representative.
