New file transfer standards thanks to OFTP2

On the basis of the Odette File Transfer Protocol OFTP2, rvs®EVO offers additional functions which are not available on products based on FTP, for example end-to-end response, routing and restart. OFTP also allows data to be exchanged between business partners who use different file transfer products.
OFTP was specially developed and standardized for automated file transfer. The new standard also allows access to new file transfer worlds (e.g. the retail market). The option of using the product in a DMZ (demilitarized zone) with the Internet offers greater security.
