Trusted Gateway System™
Secure Multi-Directional Data Transfer
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, enabling safe and simultaneous data movement between networks at 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 of different classification levels. Trusted Gateway System provides end-to-end auditing of the two person human review process for releasing documents (when required by policy).
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 low 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.
