EASY OPERATION AND ADMINISTRATION WITH MAXIMUM SECURITY

Easy operation using web browsers

OpenDXM GlobalX can be used with all of the most common web browsers and requires no special training thanks its intuitive web interface. This means that no client software has to be installed on users' computers, thus minimizing operating costs and the need for support. This allows it to be used both as a desktop application and on mobile devices.

Outlook integration

The Outlook integration makes it possible to send and receive files with confidential contents, such as e-mails, and involving tens or hundreds of gigabytes of data. Attachments greater than a definable size, of a certain type or intended for certain recipients are automatically encrypted and made available to the recipient in the OpenDXM GlobalX portal. Once received, they are displayed in encrypted form in Outlook for downloading.

Windows Explorer and "Send to" integration

Thanks to OpenDXM GlobalX's Windows Explorer integration, users who are used to navigating with Windows Explorer can exchange data easily via drag-and-drop. You also see incoming data in your familiar folder structure and can download it from the portal with a single click. You can also use the "Send to" function to send any amount of data in encrypted and traceable form by simply entering an e-mail address.

Controlled data access

Access to the data is controlled by a comprehensive role and permissions management system. Before the data is accessed, the system checks the identity of the recipient using the user ID, password, and assigned permissions set. If necessary, two-factor authentication can be used.   The administrators cannot view the users' data.

Powerful data encryption

All data is encrypted with an individually generated key using hybrid encryption with a key length of up to 4,096 bits, both during storage and transfer. This enables true end-to-end, user-to-user encryption for highly sensitive data. The data is decrypted at the user's workstation, but only if the user possesses the required personal key.

Encrypted connection

Data transfer, both within a company, e.g. using a Windows/Outlook Integration, and via the Internet is always performed using an HTTPS connection with 256-bit encryption. If an attempt should nevertheless be made steal data by means of a "man-in-the-middle attack“, the invader cannot make use of the data due to the fact that the data itself is highly  encrypted.

PATRIOT Act security

The data made available via OpenDXM GlobalX resides in encrypted form in the FileVaults located at any site worldwide. This data is worthless without the keys, which are managed in the central OpenDXM GlobalX server. This server can be located in a country of your choice, for example in a country whose laws do not allow the keys to be handed over to government agencies.

ROBUST MASS DATA TRANSFER OFFERING THE BEST POSSIBLE PERFORMANCE

Interruption-resistant transfer

A special transfer protocol guarantees the robust data transfer of large volumes of data involving tens or hundreds of gigabytes, even in the case of instable Internet connections. The data is transferred in blocks, so that transfer operations that have been interrupted can be resumed at the same position at which they were interrupted.

Parallel transfer via multiple channels

The parallel transfer of data via multiple channels using multi-thread technology ensures that large amounts of data comprising several gigabytes can be transferred over long distances much faster than with conventional data exchange solutions.

Transfer Manager

The transfer operations are controlled and monitored using the clearly-structured user interface provided by the Transfer Manager. It allows block size, number of transfer threads, etc. to be specified and thus ensures extremely stable and high-performance data transfer.

Automated data transfer

The transfer of data between the portal and the local file server at the user's location can be automated with the help of an OpenDXM GlobalX GateWay. The data is transferred to and from the portal in batch mode, eliminating the need for users to wait for uploads and downloads. Data exchange robots allow data exchange operations with exchange partners or between different company sites to be fully automated.

Integrated system monitoring

The integrated monitoring functions inform the administrator of which keys are about to expire, which storage quotas have been exhausted, etc., thus ensuring smooth operation.

Template-assisted administration

Templates make it easier for the system administrator to create internal and external user accounts and assign them to specific groups as well as allocate permission sets.

Configurable WebSpaces

The WebSpaces belonging to users and user groups can be managed and configured individually. This not only facilitates the targeted transfer of data to certain individuals but also collaboration between project teams involved in joints development projects.

Fast on-boarding for external users

The on-boarding process for external users is very simple and can be completed with just a few mouse clicks using templates that have been defined for different user groups and which can be used to automatically assign permissions, periods of password validity, group memberships, memory usage, etc.

FLEXIBLE SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE AND GUIDELINE-COMPLIANT EXCHANGE PROCESSES

Integration in the IT infrastructure

OpenDXM GlobalX can be integrated seamlessly in existing business processes and enterprise applications. Ready-to-use integration components are available for numerous PLM, ERP and Office systems. Web services make it possible to also quickly integrate other systems.

Integration of existing user management systems

A company's existing user management system, such as LDAP/ADS for example, can be used to manage user accounts and for authentication purposes as a standard function for OpenDXM GlobalX. This means that on- and off-boarding processes are automated and can be managed in a time efficient manner.

SSO support

OpenDXM GlobalX's open software architecture and maintained interfaces that ensure cross-version stability also make it possible to integrate identity and access management (IAM) systems in order to implement single sign-on processes.

Flexible extensibility

An integration service API makes OpenDXM GlobalX's flexible plug-in concept possible. The documented web service interface can be used to connect to any back-end system in order to implement customer-specific business processes.

Decentralized data provision

OpenDXM GlobalX's Remote FileVault concept enables local data provision and collaboration with local data exchange partners together with centralized administration and logging. This functionality ensures extremely efficient data management in collaboration processes and makes data available much faster.

Automatic logging

OpenDXM GlobalX stores every user action and every process in the database in an audit-proof manner so that they can be traced at any time by any user or administrator. This ensures a high level of transparency and makes it possible to perform a wide range of different searches over any period of time. The searches can be fully automated if required and can be made available as reports.

Satisfying compliance requirements

The audit-trail-capable logging of all user actions and processes makes it easier to provide proof of compliance with statutory and company-specific requirements. OpenDXM GlobalX's Outlook integration component allows compliance with these requirements to be made binding for all the users within a company when sending data via email. Based on company guidelines, the administrator can for example store a freely configurable set of rules in OpenDXM GlobalX which prevent certain documents from being sent by e-mail. The data is then made available in encrypted form via OpenDXM GlobalX without any user intervention.

GDPR compliant

OpenDXM GlobalX ensures that work is performed in line with the GDPR and with the highest possible level of data security and enables the compliant handing of personal data. If necessary, personal data processed in OpenDXM GlobalX can be anonymized in conformity with the GDPR. All other relevant information pertaining to the data exchange is retained, ensuring audit-compliant documentation.

SECURE MANAGED FILE TRANSFER AS A CLOUD SERVICE

Companies that do not want to set up and maintain their own data exchange solution can use OpenDXM GlobalX as a service without any installation or operating effort on their part. PROSTEP provides the world's leading managed file transfer (MFT) solution as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model in a highly secure cloud environment.

Private and hybrid cloud service

Utilization as a private or hybrid cloud service offers the greatest possible flexibility. This enables, for example, data exchange from the customer's internal back-end systems via the existing PDM system integration. Or the user data can be stored securely in encrypted form at different locations in the customer's own infrastructure.

Customer-specific branding

Regardless of whether you want to use OpenDXM GlobalX as a multi-tenant application, private or hybrid cloud service, custom-specific branding and a separate web address are available so you can use your own corporate design.

No operating or update effort

No operating effort on your part is required for OpenDXM GlobalX as a cloud service.  During the initial setup, the system is configured in such a way that you can use it immediately and subsequently only have to perform administrative tasks for users and data exchange partners. If required, we also perform administrative tasks as an additional service. The software updates required to guarantee the high level of security or make useful new functions available are, of course, included in the cloud service.

EASY-TO-USE AUTOMATED DATA EXCHANGE DIRECTLY FROM PLM SYSTEMS

The OpenDXM GlobalX PLM integration components that are available as standard solutions allow users to send and receive data directly from the interface of the respective PLM system. Logging of the data exchange processes with display of the status change also takes place in the PLM system. This enables PLM users to manage, monitor and trace the data exchange processes from within their familiar system environments. This saves time and optimizes the product development process with customers and suppliers.

Standardized and maintained integration components

Out-of-the-box components, which are subject to ongoing expansion and maintenance, enable problem-free support for PLM system updates and provide maximum investment protection. PLM integrations are currently available for the systems 3DEXPERIENCE, SAP PLM, SAP ECTR, Teamcenter and Windchill. If your PLM system is not included, don't worry: Our flexible plug-in concept, which always uses the official standard interfaces of the PLM system involved, enables easy integration with your system.

Data integrity and authentication

The "one-time login" function provided by the OpenDXM GlobalX PLM integrations is not merely a convenient user feature. The use of user credentials means that it also guarantees that only the data that the user in question is authorized to access can be sent from the PLM system. In addition, checking rules, which perform data consistency checks and display the results for the user to see, can be stored in the OpenDXM GlobalX PDMWizard. This avoids situations in which partners do not receive all the data and speeds up collaboration in development networks.

Interactive and automated data filtering

One of the useful functions provided by the PLM integrations is optional interactive and background data filtering. The user can select assemblies by clicking on the corresponding root element and can exclude documents in the tree structure that have a certain format from being sent. Filtering can be performed on the basis of defined templates or as a background process without any need for user intervention.

Partner-specific mapping

Every company normally uses its own specific part names, document names and number ranges in its PLM system. As a supplier, the customer data is sent to you with the nomenclature used by the customer and you are usually expected to deliver the data using the same nomenclature. OpenDXM GlobalX's PLM integrations allow the manual maintenance of third-party attributes, which involves a considerable amount of effort, to be automated.  A renaming component, which automatically renames the data based on partner-specific mapping templates, is provided for this purpose.

Automated CAD data processing

OpenDXM GlobalX provides pre-configured CAD conversion and verification methods, which are combined with a highly flexible and scalable batch processing framework. This ensures that engineering data can be processed automatically on a partner-specific basis both when it is sent and when it is received. The interfaces and licenses provided by the CAD system or Q-Check tool are used. These integrations are available for CATIA, CREO, NX, SolidWorks, Q-Checker, VALIDAT, PQA, 3D Evolution and other widely used systems as maintained standard components.

Full OFTP/ENGDAT processing for the automotive industry

The ENGDAT (Engineering Data Message) format, which is used in the European automotive industry in particular for the electronic data interchange (EDI) of CAD files, and the Odette File Transfer Protocol (OFTP) used for batch communication are available for OpenDXM GlobalX as standard components. This means that data exchange processes between companies can be fully automated. In conjunction with PLM integrations, system-to-system communication can be implemented to accelerate data exchange in the development network and speed up development processes.

Blockchain support

When it comes to the globally distributed manufacture of components using additive manufacturing processes, steps must be taken to ensure that the correct data is printed and that it cannot be copied any number of times. In combination with blockchain technology, OpenDXM GlobalX enables the creation of an end-to-end security solution for the exchange of 3D print data.

The best of the best use OpenDXM GlobalX

Limitless data communication

Imagine that you need to quickly integrate a development partner who is on a different continent and can only exchange data via the Internet in a development project. Not a problem with OpenDXM GlobalX. The partner can be integrated into the development network extremely quickly and with maximum security. You can make the data available in encrypted form on a local server in order to accelerate communication but nevertheless retain control over the encryption mechanisms, authentication and logging of the exchange operations.

Protection for confidential documents

Do you want to distribute confidential documents via the Internet in a secure manner? Not a problem with OpenDXM GlobalX. Thanks to encryption using a public/private key encryption method, users can specify – before a document is sent – that only a person in possession of the respective private key can download the document. OpenDXM GlobalX assumes responsibility for the secure generation, management and distribution of these private keys, which are stored in a password-protected keystore at the recipient's location.

Transparent versioning

Imagine that you want to make requests for quotes available to your globally distributed suppliers electronically but, due to a change, you have to send all the recipients an updated version of the documents. OpenDXM GlobalX can also deal with this problem. The documents can be made available to the recipients in encrypted form in individual WebSpaces or in a group WebSpace. Automatic notification by email ensures that all the recipients are informed of the change.

Automated data provision

Do you want to automatically provide other company sites or partners with data? A simple matter with OpenDXM GlobalX. Using gateways and robots, data can be transferred in batch mode from the portal to the company sites or partners – and vice versa. It is also not a problem if a partner does not have a reliable Internet connection. The patented transfer log and multi-thread technology ensure that the data arrives at its destination quickly and securely despite any interruptions.
