FTP might be the biggest threat to your z/OS data infrastructure. The inherent shortcomings in FTP have costs, seen and unseen, in the areas of security, automation, and visibility. With VFTP, FTP transfers from batch jobs can be simply, transparently redirected through SSH “tunnels” or dynamically translated to SFTP with no need to rewrite scripts or JCL.
VFTP wraps around FTP Servers and Clients on z/OS, where it secures access and redirects traffic through protected routes. It also provides a scripting language for z/OS batch jobs. VFTP increases your visibility while fully managing z/OS FTP.
Robust yet easy to use controls for configuration and behavior of z/OS FTP clients assure compliance and monitor security.
