DBSync’s Salesforce and File Transfer Protocol Secure (FTP/S) integration provides a simple and cost-effective way to transfer your Salesforce data to FTP/S based systems. Our unique in-memory based data transfer eliminates the risk of a security breach during the data transfer and helps you stay on top of regulatory requirements related to data storage.

Use Cases

Many businesses such as financial and insurance organizations require periodic or one-time transfer of reports, logs and transactions to centralized FTP/S servers, where they can be accessed by all stakeholders. DBSync’s Salesforce-FTP/S connector provides an easy way to transfer Salesforce data to FTP/S servers and back to Salesforce after the data is processed.


  • Adopt Salesforce without disrupting your existing FTP/S based operations:
    DBSync’s Salesforce - FTP/S integration allows you to leverage Salesforce by making the data accessible to all your stakeholders via FTP/S.
  • Fulfil your regulatory compliance:
    Our in-memory based integration helps you adhere to industry regulations regarding data storage.
  • Maximum Value:
    Perform synchronizations as frequently as you want, with no per user licensing and a simple pricing model.
  • Zero Administration:
    The synchronization process is fully automated and can be scheduled for any desired time.
  • Keep you data secure:
    FTP Secure (FTP/S) compatibility and encrypted credentials keeps all data transfers secure.


  • In memory data transfer:
    Data transfer from Cloud applications to FTP servers often requires additional security considerations, especially in a highly regulated industry. Our unique in-memory approach helps you achieve compliance with regulations in such cases.
  • Store and forward data transfer also supported:
    DBSync supports “store and forward” file transfer in addition to the in memory transfer, which can be used if needed.
  • Post-processing operations:
    DBSync provides post-processing capabilities such as moving processed files into another folder, deleting them etc. after the data transfer.
  • Different ways to run the integration:
    A process can be run in two different ways: manually or via the scheduler, that will automate the data transfer process.
