    Will there be any encryption of backups or ability to sftp ? Currently we support clients with on premise setups that could do with automated remote backups of their configs. Internal hosted clients isn’t such an issue as its private network ftp, however considering the root xml file has every password in it, external unsecured or unencrypted backup ftp transfers aren’t an option.
    Thanks, Steve.

    Would like to see this as well. We have to manually script sftp to get backups offsite securely.

    We cant use FTP to backup across the internet. Please add a secure way to backup over the internet.

    Depending on your needs the Google Drive backup would meet this requirement as it would be encrypted in transit. The zip file itself still wouldn't be though.

    hi,
    did the subject move forward ?
    We can see that we cannot trust operators whose business model is the processing of private data like Facebook, Google... more...
    in Europe a very restrictive law comes into force in a month called the RGPD. It specifies that we must prove that we have made every effort to ensure the protection and non-dispersion of personal data, which is totally impossible by storing elements on Google Drive, or by making a copy via FTP (as a reminder, the ftp password is in clear text in the frames).
    So please, just let us use secure FTP
