ECS Gateway Server
The ability to route and process data files has never been easier or more secure. With Liaison’s new ECS Gateway Server, you still get the same flexible, scalable product with more security and less configuration. The benefits of adding ECS Gateway Server include:
- Easy to configure: By having a registered ECS Gateway Server in the DMZ, you can simply “promote” a channel out to the DMZ, making configuration as easy as two mouse clicks.
- Easy to monitor: ECS Gateway Server runs in the background and has monitoring tools which understand ECS natively, making it intuitive to monitor network traffic and connections.
- Secure and private: ECS Gateway Server itself, which runs in the DMZ, communicates to ECS on the safe-side over a secure encrypted port, so all data moving between DMZ and the safe-side will be secure. Also, no temp files or data of any kind are stored permanently or temporarily in the DMZ, so no risk of data being accessible.
ECS provides a powerful integration tool for all types of EAI projects, and efficiently gives you the ability to configure, manage, view, track and summarize the flow of critical data throughout your business. ECS Gateway Server removes the security risk of opening your firewall to allow in/outbound connections directly between your external customers and ECS platform. It also eliminates the need for expensive third-party solutions to communicate through the firewall to the safe side of the network.
Liaison’s ECS supports data transfer and security protocols including S/MIME, AS1, AS2, AS3 and SOAP/SwA. ECS Enterprise Edition supports automatic failover and scalability through its support of clustering. It also has sophisticated data tracking and exception handling capabilities ensure maximum visibility of critical business processes.
