PROVIDE GATEWAY – Reverse Proxy

ProVide Gateway

Using a reverse proxy means you do not expose internal systems via public firewall ports. You can compare it with having a well-trained doorman who receives and delivers packages behind locked doors.

Why do you need one

The short answer is, for a really high amount of security. If you have a DMZ zone, you can keep the gateway on the internet side, while keeping the server unexposed on the internal network. You then form a secure connection between the gateway and the server, only allowing traffic to the server, while eliminating all other traffic. The reverse proxy means all connections from your ProVide server are made from within a firewall, or a tiered array of firewalls that need no externally exposed port openings.

How does it work?

ProVide Gateway allows you to make a secure connection between ProVide running in the Internal network and ProVide Gateway running connected to the internet. It’s a secure tunnel allowing the traffic between ProVide and the Gateway while terminating all other incoming traffic through the DMZ. You can configure ProVide to create a route to the gateway on the following protocols, SFTP, HTTP, HTTPS. Each route can be enabled and disabled with the press of a button.

Linux or Windows or Both?

ProVide Gateway runs on both Windows (Server 2016/2019) and Linux (Ubuntu Server v16 or later is officially supported and in addition, it’s known that ProVide Gateway is used on Centos, SUSE and Debian distributions as well).

How is the Setup?

On Windows there is an easy setup software, which is done in a few clicks with no active choices needed. On Linux you are simply provided with the executable, which you can simply run or register as a service if you wish to. Setting up connections between ProVide and the Gateway is done in the administration interface for ProVide. ProVide Gateway can be configured to create routes through the gateway using SFTP, HTTP and HTTPS. Each route can after configuration be enabled and disabled with the press of a button in the ProVide Administration interface.!

Gateway is made for those who value very high security

It allows communication with ProVide through DMZ, and safely terminates all connections and never stores any data in your DMZ.

The client will never connect directly to the server, instead, it connects through the gateway to the server located safely in your internal network. Your external clients will connect just as they normally would without any need for additional hardware, software or knowledge.

Guard Booth

The reverse proxy service operates much like a guard booth. When a client comes to the counter and asks to deliver a package or to receive a package the guards will ask for credentials,

Frequently Asked Questions

You should use it when you want to use ProVide server to distribute files over an unsecure network, but don't want to expose the server itself to the unsecured network under any circumstances. I.e., if you want much higher-than-average protection against hackers.

ProVide server is installed inside your trusted network and no traffic is allowed into that area. Instead, ProVide Gateway is installed in your DMZ and ProVide server instructs Gateway to route traffic through. It’s like your personal doorman delivering packets to/from the door without exposing the server installation.

We are here to help if you need our assistance, but you should be able to install it all using our guides available online.

If you are considering this setup you most certainly already have a dedicated DMZ. If that’s the case then you won’t need to change anything as ProVide server is simply installed inside your trusted network and ProVide Gateway is installed in your regular DMZ. The basic idea of a reverse proxy setup is that NO traffic should be allowed through the firewall into your trusted network.

Currently HTTPS and SFTP are supported through ProVide Gateway.
