We have received a notification from Salesforce about Marketing Cloud File Transfer Activity Changes where they are disabling FTP protocol and enabling SFTP.
We as an organization are already using SFTP(with strong cipher keys)but when we raised a Case to Salesforce Support,they say we need to use SSH keys to connect to Marketing cloud FTP now.This will be a major change for us.There are multiple third party vendors which place files on SFMC FTP(by using the username and password which we had generated for their FTP location). Also there are business users(several departments) which connect to FTP to check their files or places files manually.Do we need to generate SSH keys for all of them? or we generate ssh keys for all of them and pass the public keys to Salesforce and private keys to vendors and marketing users ?
Is there an efficient way of doing this?
This is how I connect now:
This is how Salesforce Support is proposing we need to connect:
