SFTP is actually based on the SSH (Secure Shell) protocol which is best known for it's use in providing secure access to shell accounts on remote servers.

Data Exchange

Unlike FTP/S, SFTP does not utilize separate command and data channels. Both data and commands are transferred in specially formatted packets via a single connection.

Security

All data sent between client and server is encrypted using an agreed upon encryption cipher.

Firewall

Server - Allow inbound connections on port 22.

Client - Allow outbound connections to port 22.
