ATLANTA, May 17 /- SEEBURGER Inc. today released a Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) adapter for its suite of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) solutions, including the standalone SEEBURGER Business Integration Server as well as the SEEBURGER EDI add-on for use with the SAP NetWeaver Exchange Infrastructure (SAP NetWeaver XI). The new adapter is designed for organizations that prefer the security of the SFTP communications protocol. It also complies with the FIPS 140-2 standard to enable use by the U.S. Department of Defense, other federal agencies and their contractors.
This addition to SEEBURGER's adapter library reflects the rising use of SFTP as a more secure alternative to FTP, which includes no encryption capabilities, or FTP/s, which encrypts the control session but does not always encrypt the data session. SFTP encrypts the entire session, including username, password and data files, using the Secure Shell Protocol (SSH).
Like all SEEBURGER components and adapters, it was developed in-house to provide a one-platform EDI/B2B architecture that ensures compatibility, provides a common work environment, and simplifies maintenance across the extended supply chain. SEEBURGER also offers over 60 adapters for FTP/s, AS2 and other communications protocols as well as pre-built integrations to dozens of the leading ERP and business applications, including those from SAP AG, Oracle, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, QAD, Navision, Ariba, Bauerer, Intentia and SSA Global/Baan.
"This new adapter enables us to support organizations in both the commercial and government sectors who are implementing SFTP as their communications protocol of choice," said Scott Lewin, President & CEO, SEEBURGER Inc. "It also ensures that our customers will continue to be able to meet all of their EDI and B2B needs with SEEBURGER's broad portfolio of solutions and adapters."
SEEBURGER's core EDI/B2B technology is available either in the company's Business Integration Server (BIS), the only middleware solution capable of integrating 100% of an organization's applications and trading partners including smaller customers and suppliers that still do business on paper; or SEEBURGER's EDI add-on for use with SAP NetWeaver XI, an adapter that integrates natively with the SAP NetWeaver technology stack and thereby eliminates the need for a standalone EDI application. Both solutions support all global trading requirements with a single B2B gateway, aiding global enterprises that wish to simplify their technology infrastructure by standardizing on one B2B solution for all offices.
The new SFTP adapter is available immediately from SEEBURGER.
