EVC’s Advanced Guard for Information Security (AGIS)

Secure File Transfer with Advanced Guard for Information Security (AGIS)

Protect your organization through deep content inspection

AGIS is a secure, bi-directional file transfer mechanism that securely transfers at-risk data files such as Microsoft Office™, XML, TXT, PDF, and imagery file formats between networks of varying security classifications while retaining the original file format. These files are high-risk targets and susceptible to viruses, malware, malicious code, hidden content, and embedded objects. These risks can be mitigated through AGIS!
