The AESDirect VPN Service Overview
AESDirect VPN provides an Internet based Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection to the AESDirect Service.
AESDirect VPN can be used by three categories of companies filing to AES, these are:
- Companies using the AESDirect WWW and AESWebLink interactive interfaces
- Companies using the AESDirect EDI Upload feature
- Companies filing (connecting) directly with CBP AES ("AES") system from their own computer system and not currently using AESDirect.
The AESDirect VPN Service allows companies to establish a secure (encrypted) Internet connection to AESDirect. AESDirect provides a free client side software utility to establish and manage this connection. This connection provides the ability to conduct a secure automated exchange of data between a filing companies own computers (systems) and the AESDirect Service. The AESDirect VPN Service thus allows Direct AES and AESDirect filers to electronically deliver AES submission transactions to AESDirect and allows AES responses to be delivered back to the filer in secure and automated computer-to-computer transactions.
How AESDirect VPN Can Be Used
AESDirect VPN provides AESDirect users (WWW, AESWebLink, and EDI Filers) with a fully automated secure and encrypted data link to their existing AESDirect Account.
AESDirect VPN provides companies already filing directly to AES a fully automated secure and encrypted data link to their existing AES Account through AESDirect.
