VShell Secure Shell server is a secure alternative to Telnet and FTP on Windows and UNIX platforms. Provide the strong encryption, robust authentication, and data integrity of SSH2 throughout your organization. Precision control over privileges, the ability to fine tune your Secure Shell environment, and a wide selection of strong authentication methods give you a flexible solution that grows with your evolving security policies.
Protect access to your mission-critical servers with:
- Multi-protocol secure file transfer
- Secure remote access and administration using SSH2
- Reliability and robustness: "set it and forget it"
File transfer options include:
- A robust SFTP server offering a wide variety of encryption algorithms plus support for FTPS and FTP
- An HTTPS file transfer server allowing browser-based or scripted uploads and downloads (available with the HTTPS Enterprise edition for Windows)
- The power to lock down users and groups to desired locations in the file system using virtual roots
Perform secure remote access and administration with:
- Command shell access
- Remote execution of commands and applications
- Port forwarding (data tunneling)
Provide strong, multi-protocol security for data in transit. The Secure Shell (SSH2) protocol delivers proven, open-standard authentication, encryption, and data integrity that let you provide a wide range of services to your organization with confidence.
FTPS increases your protocol choices (including FTP for support of legacy devices).
The Enterprise edition with HTTPS for Windows allows users to transfer files easily using a web browser.
Control user access to features and files. VShell gives you extensive controls to manage privileges for shell, file transfer, and other services. Examples include access control lists and virtual root directories.
Set up and configure easily. VShell installs and runs right "out of the box". Windows setup and configuration is made easy by the graphical control panel.
Monitor and log events with automation support. VShell triggers help you track and respond to events like failed logon attempts and uploaded files. Event logging supports security monitoring and regulatory compliance.
Use connection-based licensing to your advantage. VShell Administrator, Workgroup, and Enterprise editions allow cost-effective licensing from one user to thousands.
The Enterprise edition with HTTPS for Windows reduces administrative overhead by eliminating the need to purchase, install, and maintain additional software for file transfer.
Our support program includes expert technical support and regular maintenance releases.
What's new in VShell 4.4.1
- Windows: A line is now written to the log if a client request is refused because the associated HTTPS method has been disabled; for example, when a client using WebDAV is unable to upload a file because the HTTPS PUT method has been disabled.
- Windows: On Windows Server 2008 SP2, the VShell Control Panel could crash when certain settings were changed.
- Windows: VShell services could cause high CPU usage and hang when performing multiple LDAP authentications at the same time.
- Windows: In the VShell Control Panel, there was no prompt to save changes when the red X was used to close the Control Panel.
- Windows: When the number of FTPS connections exceeded any setting that restricts the number of allowed connections, the
user's IP address would be added to the deny hosts file and any further attempts to connect from that IP address would be denied.
- Windows: A VShell User Web Interface session would be automatically logged out if a file transfer took longer than the time limit specified for idle HTTPS sessions.
- Windows: The VShell HTTPS server could become deadlocked when multiple connections were made by the same user.
- Windows: In the VShell Control Panel, it was possible for the HTTP listen addresses to become enabled when they should have stayed disabled.
