Hatchet Alternatives

    Hatchet is paid macOS software that enables you to edit and transfer remote files over secure shell connections. Many of its alternatives are more multifaceted, though there are a few that feature support for SSH as well.

    Many may prefer free and open source alternatives to Hatchet due to being a program centered around data transfer over multiple locations with an emphasis on security. Nothing is more secure than knowing how the program you use to handle these file transfers operates!
