VShell 4.4 (Beta) from VanDyke Software Introduces HTTPS Support for Browser-Based, Secure File Transfer
Albuquerque, N.M. (November 14, 2017) — VanDyke Software®, a developer of multi-platform secure terminal emulation and secure file transfer software, today announced the beta release of VShell® 4.4 Server for Windows. VShell 4.4 (Beta) introduces HTTPS support, giving organizations the ability to deploy a browser-based, secure file transfer solution for employees and external customers.
"Many of our customers need the additional flexibility of a file transfer option that doesn't require the use of a client-side software application," said Danielle Argiro, Product Director for VShell. "With VShell 4.4 (Beta) with HTTPS, end users can now connect to VShell using their Internet browser to view folder contents as well as upload and download files. This eliminates a significant amount of training and administrative overhead since no client software or special plugins are needed. File transfer can also be automated using HTTPS command-line tools such as cURL."
VShell delivers strong, multi-protocol security for data in transit, giving you fine-grained control over end user access to data on your system. The VShell virtual root capability lets you "lock down" users and groups so they can only see the folders on your file system that you allow them to see. It also lets you specify whether or not they can perform specific operations such as deleting files or directories.
In addition to giving you control over data access, VShell offers a variety of other benefits. Triggers allow you to automate data and business processing; you can configure VShell to run commands/scripts or move, copy, or transfer files in response to user operations such as file upload. Logging and real-time monitoring support corporate security requirements and regulatory compliance. VShell also allows you to thwart brute force attacks by configuring it to add IP addresses to a denied host list after a certain number of authentication failures in a particular amount of time.
Adding HTTPS to the file transfer protocols already supported by VShell (SFTP, FTPS, and SCP) expands the use of VShell to non-technical end users, while still providing advanced security options.
