Maximum security
when exchanging data

Data encryption

All data is encrypted with an individually generated key using hybrid encryption with a key length of up to 4096 bits. Highly sensitive data can be given added protection using a public/private key encryption method. Users can define security levels individually and revoke the release of data.

Key management

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

Encrypted transfer

Data transfer, both within a company and via the Internet, is always performed using an HTTPS connection with 256-bit encryption. If an attempt is made to manipulate the data during transfer, the system recognizes this attempt and marks the data accordingly.

Blockchain support

Globally distributed component production based on additive manufacturing processes must be able to rely on the original data securely reaching the 3D printer in a manner that protects it from unauthorized reproduction. OpenDXM GlobalX uses blockchain technology in combination with other security measures to create a comprehensive security solution for exchanging 3D print data.

» Further information

Reliable identification

Access to the data is controlled using a comprehensive role and rights management system. Before the data is delivered, the system checks the identity of the recipient using their password, key and, if necessary, also a chip card. Existing ADF/LDAP systems can be integrated for single sign-on.

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.

Fast and stable data transfer

Interruption-resistant transfer

A special transfer log guarantees stable data transfer even for instable Internet connections. The data is transferred in blocks, thus ensuring 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

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.

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. The notification system informs users when data is available for downloading or has been uploaded.

Easy operation and administration

Operation in the web browser

OpenDXM GlobalX runs in the web browser and can be used without any special training thanks to its intuitive web interface. This means that no client software has to be installed on users' computers, thus minimizing administrative overhead.

Automated data transfer

The transfer of data between the portal and a user's workstation can be automated with the help of an OpenDXM GlobalX agent. Gateways reduce the time that users have to wait by transferring the data to the portal or fetching it from the portal in batch mode. Data exchange robots allow data exchange operations with exchange partners or between different sites to be fully automated.

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 joint development projects.

Integrated system monitoring

Templates make it easier for the system administrator to create internal and external user accounts and assign them to specific groups. The integrated monitoring functions inform the administrator of which keys are about to expire, which storage quotas have been exhausted, etc. and thus ensure smooth operation.

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.
