Data Pump Applications

You can adapt the following three basic Data Pump Applications to your organization's specific data transfer requirements.

File Transfer Application*

The automated transfer of files placed into a specific source directory on the lower classification to a corresponding destination directory on the higher classification.

Interactive Link - File Transfer Application


Email Transfer Application*

The automated transfer of email from lower to higher classification. It interfaces with SMTP mail servers, such as MS Exchange, to allow users on the higher classification to receive email from users on the lower classification.
