BizTalk server has supported the FTP (File Transfer Protocol) adapter since its early release.
With the BizTalk 2010 release, Microsoft enhanced the existing FTP adapter to support
(FTPS), which encrypts the data transfers between systems. In the BizTalk 2013 release, Microsoft added SFTP (SSH
File Transfer Protocol also, called Secure File Transfer Protocol). This has been much anticipated over the years and it is great that a true SFTP adapter now exists with BizTalk server. In
the past for one had to rely on the open source adapter developed by Blogical found on
CodePlex or an adapter from commercial third parties (like
/n software SFTP). Now you will have advantages of Microsoft support for out-of-the-box of SFTP adapter.
