Configuring MTC Security

 Perhaps the most important feature available to the MTC, aside from an always secure connection, is the centrally managed security controls that dictate what users can and cannot do within the MTC app when connected to EFT.

Server and Site administrators can also block MTC connections, effectively terminating the connection based on the user-agent string that identifies the client as an MTC client. (This does not prevent other file transfer clients—mobile or desktop—from connecting to EFT.)

MTC's security policy only applies to files in the remote directory. The security policy does not apply to files in the vault, which means that any file downloaded to the vault can be shared or opened in third-party applications. If the EFT administrator doesn't want users to share files or open them in third-party apps, then EFT should be configured to not allow users to save files to device's vault.

To configure MTC security

  1. Enable the MTC.

  2. Click Configure. The Mobile Transfer Client Security Policy dialog box appears.

  3. Each time a user connects or makes specific requests to MTC, their profile is updated with the latest security control settings. Select (enable) or clear (disable) the following check boxes:

  4. Click Apply to save the changes on EFT.
