Easily Encrypt z/OS FTP
FTP is always one of the biggest threats 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 and Tectia® SSH, file transfers from batch jobs can be simply, transparently redirected through SSH “tunnels” or dynamically translated to SFTP without requiring JCL changes.
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.
Want to completely secure all file transfers to and from z/OS?
With all its capabilities and z/OS file transfer expertise, VFTP can be leveraged alongside Tectia SSH, an enterprise-grade client/server to create an unstoppable Secure FTP solution for the mainframe! The VFTP-SSH® Collaboration offers completely Secure FTP for file transfers between all platforms and the mainframe.
Customers, regulators, and business partners hold you accountable for data integrity, system performance, and lost or stolen files. VFTP enables your business to comply with stringent standards (GDPR, SOX, GLBA, HIPAA, PCI DSS) and provide required audit trails.
To safeguard sensitive data, mainframe FTP is fully integrated with mainframe SAF security (RACF, ACF2, or Top Secret). Also, with SSH, standard z/OS FTP traffic is converted to encrypted z/OS SFTP for complete protection of data in transit.
Detailed tracking and logging of all mainframe FTP transfers and file-transfer sessions tells you who transferred what, when, where, how. You get immediate, real-time notification when z/OS FTP jobs fail and a comprehensive, end-to-end audit trail.
