The modular form of EFT makes it affordable by allowing you to purchase
just the functionality you need, and add advanced features as your business
needs change. All module features listed below are available during the trial.
Advanced Authentication Modes Module (AAMM) - The Advanced Authentication Modes Module
protects data in transit by enforcing the use of secure protocols,
strong ciphers and encryption keys, and maintaining strict password
policies, and enables organizations to centralize their user access
controls, improve productivity, and increase adherence to security
policies, and provides administrators with the ability to easily maintain
password security in one location to quickly commission and decommission
user provisions in one central location. The module also provides SAML
(WebSSO), RSA SecurID, RADIUS, and CAC support, which allows EFT
to fit in seamlessly with existing authentication measures.
Workflow Module (AWM) - Adds additional automation capabilities, allowing
you to add scripting and variables to Workflow
Tasks, then add these reusable Workflows to Event Rules. A
Workflow is a series of steps that can perform file transfers, batch
data processing, application testing, and so on, and are defined to
run automatically when started by some event.
AS2 Protocol Module (AS2) - Supports the exchange of structured business data securely
on top of the HTTP or HTTP/S protocol.
and Reporting Module (ARM) - Captures all of the transactions passing
through EFT. You can query the data and create/view reports from within
the EFT administration interface.
- used in combination with EFT to create a multi-tier security solution
for data storage and retrieval. The DMZ Gateway resides at the edge
of the network, brokering data between EFT residing behind your corporate
firewall and your clients in the outside world.
Connector Module (CCM) - Enables you to transfer files to/from cloud services
such as AWS and Azure.
- Enterprise Actions Module (EAM) - Enables automation features such as executing scripts, performing folder and file operations, compressing/decompressing files, and so on.
Transfer Client (FTC) - Enables you to define copy, move, and download
actions in Event Rules. For example, you could define a rule to trigger
when a file is downloaded, so that EFT moves it to another folder.
Monitor Module (FMM) - Creates an Event Rule trigger used to detect the
creation, deletion, and renaming of files in a monitored folder and
to perform Actions based on these triggers. For example, perhaps a
weekly report is uploaded to a specific folder. You can define an
Event Rule so that when EFT detects that a file has been added to
the folder, an email is sent to notify one or more users that the
report is available for download. In v8.0.7 and later, this module is no longer part of core EFT and requires a license to use the Upload/Download/Synchronize actions in event rules.
FTPS module - Allows you to use FTP over SSL/TLS to for more secure transfers. (Plain FTP is included.)
module - Allows you to set up a secure connection to anyone in minutes
using any Web browser. The HTTPS module adds the HTTP and HTTPS protocols
to EFT, enabling you to support browser-based transfers without having
to install a Web server. HTTPS encrypts the session data using the
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol, which provides protection from
eavesdroppers and man-in-the-middle attacks. The Web
Transfer Client (WTC) can deploy automatically upon client connection
to EFT and can be used by any trading partner using virtually any
module (PGP) - Safeguards data at rest. The OpenPGP data encryption or decryption
process is directed by Event Rules that specify how data files are
treated in a particular context. EFT uses OpenPGP to encrypt uploaded
data and the off-load capabilities of EFT to move the file to another
location. (industry-standard, RFC 4880 compliant).
Regulatory Compliance Module (RCM) - Supports PCI DSS, GDPR, and other compliance-related features to achieve or exceed security practices
mandated by government and industry standards such as PCI DSS, HIPAA,
and Sarbanes-Oxley for data transfer, access, and storage
Agent module (RAM) - Provides centralized control for automating
transactions from distributed systems. RAM enables automatic interactions
between branch offices, point-of-sale terminals, business partners,
field agent laptops, or other remote systems and your EFT server (over HTTPS port 443) residing
in a central location.
Secure Forms Module (SFM) - Provides "upload forms," custom web forms that you create to capture metadata
during file uploads when using the web clients. Metadata gathered by the
upload form can be used in downstream event rules (that is, subsequent Actions)
for conditional post processing.
- SFTP Module - Subset of the popular SSH protocol and is a platform independent,
secure transfer protocol. SFTP provides a single connection port for
easy firewall navigation, password and public key authentication,
and strong data encryption, to prevent login, data, and session information
from being intercepted and/or modified in transit. The SFTP module
enables EFT to authenticate and transfer data securely with SFTP-ready
FTP clients, such as CuteFTP®.
Timer Event Module (TEM) - Allows you to execute a specified Action only one time
or repeatedly at specified intervals. For example, you could schedule
an Action (for example, generate and send a report) to occur on July 8 at
midnight, or every Monday morning, or on the last Friday of every
month at 2 a.m.
- Allows you to share folders and their files with internal and external
Business Activity Monitoring
(BAM) is a web-based dashboard tool that uses data from the Auditing and
Reporting module to provide full visibility into the flow of data
through your EFT system. Evaluate data trends over time and gain instantaneous
knowledge about the current state of your system.
