Today, FTP Voyager Free FTP Client for Windows is the only major file transfer client that supports IPv6, has a native 64-bit client and uses a ribbon interface like Microsoft Office®. It is also the only major FTP client that incorporates Windows 7 conventions like jump lists. This means FTP Voyager is faster, more reliable, and feels familiar on the only operating systems Microsoft ships today.
FTP Voyager provides an advanced scheduler accessible to casual users through wizards and the industry's best GUI interface. It also provides the capabilities power users value such as "post-transfer actions" (e.g., send email if a file transfer fails), a command-line interface, and links to external applications.
FTP Voyager also offers a comprehensive set of folder synchronization utilities. First, we offer a folder comparison feature that highlights differences in your trees as you navigate local and remote folder in lockstep. Second, FTP Voyager offers a sophisticated "fire and forget" interface that lets you preview hundreds or thousands of transfers and deletes before they are performed. Finally, FTP Voyager allows you to schedule your synchronizations to run in the background through the FTP Voyager scheduler service, so business continuity is never interrupted.
Finally, organizations transferring sensitive information rely on FTP Voyager because of its FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography and approval by the U.S. military (U.S. Army Certificate of Networthiness). Security is assured through the use of the FTPS and SFTP protocols, through the use of strong certificate- or key-based authentication, and encryption of local credentials on disk.
