Functions and subsystems
Secure Shell/Command (SSH2)
SFTP (supports files larger than 4 GB!)
Powerful script-based event handling subsystem, with support for 4 major scripting languages (NEW!)
SilverSHielD runs as a system service and local/remote administration is performed though a modern Management Console, included in the download package, which establishes a secure channel with the SilverSHielD server and allows remote configuration of one or many servers
Alternatively you can take advantage of the Command-Line Interface (CLI) to integrate SilverSHielD management into your workflow, even using 3rd party management tools (provided such tools can call a command line application)
Unlike many other competing products, SilverSHielD isn't loaded with tons of (often useless) features; instead it's focused on simplicity and ease of use, and of course on security and reliability.
And it's free of charge if 3 simultaneous connection from a single client is sufficient for you and if you don't use it for commercial purposes. If you need to allow more than one client connection at a time or to use it for commercial purposes, you can purchase the Pro edition. Anyway your free edition will never expire and all our free edition users are entitled to lifetime updates and upgrades.
