VShell 4.7 increases security by limiting downloads by file type. On Windows, take advantage of the new copy trigger feature when adding new file transfer automation tasks
ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico, April 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — VanDyke Software®a developer of cross-platform secure file transfer and secure terminal emulation software, today announced the official release of VShell® Server 4.7.
Restricting downloading by file types increases VShell security
VShell Secure File Transfer Server has a full range of features that allow you to restrict access to services using Windows ACLs, “lock down” file system access to specific folders and limit or deny incoming connections that may pose a security risk.
VShell 4.7 extends these security features by limiting file downloads by file type. “The ability to restrict file uploads by file type adds to the administrator’s choices to increase the security of their server,” said Danielle Argiro, product manager for VShell. “Its flexible configuration allows you to choose the approach that best suits your particular environment – specifying which file types you allow or which file types you deny.”
Trigger Copy saves time when creating new triggers
Automation is a key way to increase administrator productivity. VShell automates tasks with a combination of event trigger conditions, remote command execution, and command line utilities. VShell triggers let you automate responses to file uploads, uploads, or adding new files to a folder. You can set trigger actions to run commands, copy or move files, send emails or even transfer files to another SFTP server.
With VShell 4.7 for Windows, you can save time when adding new file transfer automation tasks. Quickly create new triggers using the Copy Trigger feature in the VShell Control Panel.
Supported platforms now include Windows 11, Windows Server 2022, and macOS 12 (Monterey).
Updated FIPS module
the Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 140-2 – Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules (FIPS 140-2) details US government requirements for cryptographic modules. When configured to run in FIPS mode, the VShell SSH2/SFTP server uses only FIPS-approved asymmetric key algorithms, symmetric key and stream block algorithms, message digests, message authentication and random number generation.
