Transition to SFTP delivery – what you need to know

Everything you need to make the transition to more secure delivery of data via SFTP.

Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)

We are committed to ensuring our products continue to create value and limit future risks – not just to our business, but to yours too.

In light of recent data incidents across Australia – costing businesses millions of dollars each year – we have carefully considered how we deliver our data to you in an attempt to minimise your risk exposure. We will be delivering your data via a Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) set up.
