Trusted Gateway System™
Transfer and Review Data Quickly Among Disparate Secure Networks
When your duties require transferring files among networks of different classification levels, you need a system that enables easy automated and human review to ensure the highest security for your organization.
Trusted Gateway System™, a Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) transfer solution, provides exceptional built-in manual review and automatic validations, such as virus scanning, file type verification, dirty word search and deep content inspection. These functions enable safe and simultaneous data movement between networks of different sensitivity levels.
Trusted Gateway System provides users with a graphical user interface for quickly preparing and verifying files (documents, images, etc.) for transfer between networks with different classifications. When required by policy, Trusted Gateway System also provides end-to-end auditing of the two-person human review process for releasing documents.
Secure Transfer Workflows
- Reliable Human Review (RHR) – A simple, Web-based graphical user interface (GUI) workflow that guides users through each transfer, while enforcing the two-person review process. (Default)
- Bulk Upload – An optimized, automated process that transfers files rapidly with no human interaction. Bulk upload is generally used when transferring large quantities of files from lower- to higher-level classified networks. Users copy or, if using Microsoft® Windows®, drag and drop files to a watched directory to submit them for transfer.
- Quick Submit – A Web-based application that enables rapid file transfer.
- Quick Release – A secure instant messaging tool that rapidly transfers information to configured networks (destinations). Quick Release installs on Microsoft Windows, but is only enabled when permitted by site security policy.
- Directory Transfer Service Option (DTSO) – Running on Microsoft Windows, DTSO transfers directories from a lower-labeled network to a higher-labeled network.
