AWS Transfer Family New Feature Launch Announcement

AWS Transfer Family now offers customers the option to require both SSH key and password authentication when users connect to their SFTP servers. This new method of authentication allows customers to add an additional level of protection to their data when authorizing users to securely access their files.

Previously, customers could authenticate their users with either their public key or password. With this launch, customers now have the option to require both methods of authentication simultaneously in one session. Multiple methods of authentication enable companies across financial services, healthcare, public sector industries and more to easily comply with internal security policies and further safeguard sensitive data.

The option to require password and SSH key authentication in a single session is supported in all AWS Regions where Transfer Family is available. To learn how to configure multiple methods of authentication, visit our documentation.
