SFTP Support (No SCP)
My host ( are disabling the SCP command on all servers in a few weeks due to multiple outstanding security issues with SCP affecting PCI compliance.

They already don't allow insecure FTP. So presumably I will no longer be able to use WHM Backup Solutions?

I believe as you use the cPanel APIs, it would initially be up to cPanel to develop an SFTP backup transfer option (my host enquired with cPanel regarding this, but apparently it's unlikely to happen anytime soon).

But I thought I enquire about the possibility of manually implementing a backup option that doesn't use SCP/FTP and instead uses SFTP only. I assume you'd need to use the cPanel API to generate the backup and then manually implement the ability for the script to transfer it via SFTP.
