Connecting and Transferring Files with EVFTP

Connecting and Transferring Files with EVFTP

EVFTP is ExaVault's SFTP web client. EVFTP is developed exclusively by ExaVault, and it is designed to provide a simple and secure way to transfer files. EVFTP uses SFTP – which means that your entire connection from start to finish is encrypted.

October 2011: If you're a new client, we recommend that you use our new web-based file manager, SWFT. We plan to continue to support EVFTP indefinitely, but SWFT has many advanced capabilities that EVFTP does not.
