Set up a DMZ Drop Zone

Ensure that your employees, business partners, and customers have the ability to upload and download the files they need while providing strong security that complies with regulations and your organization's policies.

Using VShell®, you can create a secure DMZ, or extranet, for sharing files and documents with customers and partners that balances the need for access with security requirements. The secure extranet can be used to upload reports and other files, create an archive of data files accessible for download and provide a secure mechanism for remote administration file oriented tasks. Extranets with business partners can be much more effective than other methods of communication like phone or fax.

A secure extranet is one of the most secure ways to make specific data available to customers, partners and remote employees, without exposing other critical company information to the public network. VShell allows you to restrict access to authorized users and encrypt usernames, passwords, and files sent to or from your secure extranet machines. VShell also provides you with precise access management through Access Control Lists (ACLs) and virtual directories. And, if you use SFTP, FTPS, or HTTPS you can automate many of these transactions so they take place without human intervention by using triggers.

SecureFX® can connect to any SFTP, FTPS, or HTTPS server. When combined with VShell, it can provide virtual directories that limit access to only the files that users need.
