Whether your need is to backup your Cisco CallManager/UC or a PCI-compliant server to securely transfer any type of file, SilverSHielD is the solution you are looking for.

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 )
