Reflection for Secure IT

Attachmate Reflection for Secure IT

Reflection for Secure IT Server uses the SSH protocol to provide secure file transfer and remote administration services for both Windows & UNIX environments. Reflection for Secure IT family of SSH clients and servers for Windows and UNIX—all designed to protect data in motion.


  • Replace nonsecure Telnet and FTP with a secure, encrypted alternative.
  • Secure remote administration of critical servers, even over untrusted networks.
  • Enhance administrative control with support for Post Transfer Actions and ProcessPriority.
  • Safely transmit sensitive data and ensure that transfers are completed.
  • Access any TCP/IP-based application through a secure transmission tunnel.







Secure internet file transfers

Reflection for Secure IT allows you to confidently exchange private files with business partners and customers over the Internet, so that you can support safer information sharing and meet growing regulatory requirements with confidence.


Convenient, secure administration

With Reflection for Secure IT, you can use interactive access, scripting, and APIs to automate and schedule routine system administration tasks over a secure channel. Reflection for Secure IT also helps boost administrative control. Process Priority allows you to limit the amount of CPU resources consumed to give priority to real-time business critical applications. And with Post Transfer Actions, you can automate important actions for files after they are received, so that business processes run even more smoothly.
