The AWS Transfer Family announces AWS Transfer for FTPS and AWS Transfer for FTP, which makes it easy to migrate File Transfer Protocol over SSL (FTPS) and FTP workloads to AWS.

With the launch of AWS Transfer for SFTP in November 2018, this expands support to three of the most commonly used data transfer protocols. Now, with support for transfers over SFTP, FTPS, and FTP in and out of Amazon S3, AWS customers can easily integrate their file transfer workflows with data lakes, customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and other business applications in AWS.  

The AWS Transfer Family simplifies migration of file transfer based workflows to AWS, without needing to modify end user credentials, scripts, network configurations, or manage servers. Using the AWS Transfer Family console (formerly known as the AWS Transfer for SFTP console) or APIs/SDKs/CLI, you can choose which protocols you want to enable access to your server’s endpoint, configure Amazon S3 buckets to store the transferred data, and set up end user authentication by integrating an existing identity provider such as Microsoft Active Directory or Okta. End users continue to transfer files over the selected protocols, while the files are stored as objects in your Amazon S3 bucket. 

The new protocols are available in all AWS Regions where the AWS Transfer Family is available. To learn more, read the AWS News launch blog, visit the AWS Transfer Family product page, or get started in the AWS Console
