Support FTP over TLS for backups (FTPS)
Backups are currently unencrypted and there is no means to securely transport those backups off the firewall in an automated way. We need, at a minimum, the ability to use FTP over TLS for remote backups. Backups should also be encrypted.
Yes please I need this feature too, quite surprised you don't have this by default. You do know the FTP password is transmitted in plain text don't you?

Backups are now encrypted by default as of verson 17.5 MR4
Ridiculous that this is STILL not possible.
In 2019 Sophos does not offer encrypted back-ups nor a secure way to get said back-ups off box.
Security focus my ***.
I would like to see this implemented as well.

Pathetic that this is not done yet, it has been asked for over a year ago.
Sophos is not security oriented but sales oriented.
+1 on this!
