Diplomat Remote Agent, a highly secure transport method, uses OpenPGP encryption and authentication to enable secure, one-step data transfers between Diplomat MFT Service and a remote location. Data no longer needs to reside outside the firewall on transport servers, such as FTP, web or email servers.
Diplomat Remote Agent can be deployed in any location – at a branch office, a trading partner site, or in a private cloud. OpenPGP authentication ensures each Diplomat Remote Agent is paired with a single Diplomat MFT site.
Diplomat MFT Standard or Enterprise Edition control file transfers to or from a Diplomat Remote Agent. Any deployed Diplomat Remote Agent becomes a source or destination partner profile in Diplomat MFT transactions.
Diplomat Remote Agent enables unattended operation with all automation and management provided by Diplomat Managed File Transfer. Diplomat MFT and Remote Agent sites work together to automatically OpenPGP encrypt files before sending and decrypt them before writing to their final destination. PGP keys for authentication can be reset as needed and PGP keys for data encryption and decryption are regularly updated by Diplomat Remote Agent with no manual intervention.
Diplomat Remote Agent also offers checkpoint restart capabilities to make file transfers more reliable. After a brief interruption, Remote Agent transfers continue from the most recent checkpoint rather than starting at the beginning, thereby saving bandwidth — and time — for the transfer to complete.
With Diplomat Remote Agent deployed at your trading partner’s site, a branch office or in your private cloud, you no longer need separate solutions for PGP encryption and secure file transfer. No FTP or secure FTP server is needed outside the firewall. Since Diplomat MFT manages file transfers in both directions, no other file transfer applications are needed to encrypt, move or store files outside the firewall.
