SECURED FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL (SFTP) SERVICE
The Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) Service enables secure file transfer capabilities between networked hosts.
SFTP additionally provides remote file system management functionality, allowing applications to resume interrupted file transfers, list the contents of remote directories, and delete remote files.
