Data security is a particularly important topic for multi-tenant SaaS applications that handle customers’ sensitive data. How to securely segregate tenant data and how to provide data access to customers will vary depending on the SaaS solution’s architecture and its requirements. This post explores how SaaS vendors can build secure, scalable, and cost-effective data exchange mechanisms using SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) with AWS managed services like AWS Transfer Family.
In the financial services domain, it’s a common architecture pattern to find shared services file servers that act as SFTP file server or FTP server. Because these financial applications are not always API driven, data exchange using flat files remains the standard way to share information between applications, even when some of them have been migrated to AWS. Learn how DXC Technology addressed migrating this type of server using AWS Transfer Family, Amazon S3, and Amazon EFS.
