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.
