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, 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.
