This is a tool that will let you do secure data transfers via Telnet and FTP protocols from a non-Unix platform.
Whether file transfer or a wider range of remote access services are needed, configurable network access software is required to counter the evolving security threats and a the changing business environment, the VShell offers a secure alternative to Telnet and FTP on popular UNIX platforms. This tool will provide a nice and simple way to provide the strong encryption, robust authentication, and data integrity of SSH2 throughout an organization. The Secure Shell protocol offers open-standard authentication, encryption, and data integrity that let you provide a wide range of services to your organization with confidence. Privileges of a mix of users could be controlled closely. It provides a mix of shell access, file transfer, and application data tunneling for these users. Network security is thus enabled and security is available to remote offices, mobile employees, partners and customers.
The fine control talked about earlier, is offered through ACLs (Access Control Lists) and it controls services provided to individual users and groups. A jail shell feature restricts users` remote shell access and file transfer (SFTP) to their home directories. Kerberos v5 (via GSSAPI), public key and encrypted passwords for authentication are supported. Security is enhanced through VShell triggers that record failed logon attempts and uploaded files. Event logging supports security monitoring and regulatory compliance. Several editions help choose the right version for your organization. This is a very good product. This is a good option when you have a pressing need for a tool like this.
