EZ Exporter: Private Key Authentication for SFTP Now Available

We've just added RSA private key authentication to EZ Exporter for SFTP/SSH connections. This authentication method provides extra security compared to regular passwords as SSH keys are much longer, making brute-force attacks pretty much impossible.

One of our customers requested it as one of their partners who they send their data to requires it to authenticate to their SFTP servers. I'm actually quite happy to see more users using SFTP vs regular FTP which is insecure by default.

To use a private key to authenticate, simply click the "Use a Private Key to authenticate" checkbox in the Export Profile under the "Destination" section and paste your private key in the text box below it.
