JSCAPE MFT Server includes built-in support for PGP and works with many popular PGP clients.  PGP is typically used to provide an additional layer of security on top of any network protocol security (e.g. SSL, SSH) that may be used.  A common scenario is to PGP encrypt all files automatically upon successful upload to the server.  This ensures that in the unlikely event your server is compromised, the attacker would still be unable to view PGP encrypted files without having the secret key needed to decrypt them.


Using PGP to encrypt files at rest is a common way of meeting government compliance standards such as the PCI DSS standard used for protecting credit card information.
