Government agencies face significant regulations and security policies when it comes to protecting sensitive data. An effective Managed File Transfer solution is critical for helping agencies meet these strict security requirements.

In addition to regulations like GLBA, SOX, HIPAA and PCI DSS, one of the most significant standards to which federal government agencies are accountable is the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). This set of requirements, enacted in 2002, mandate that every agency creates, documents and implements a plan that ensures that the information systems and the data they contain are kept secure. This includes data that is provided or managed by third-party entities such as other government agencies, contractors and trading partners.

GoAnywhere MFT At-A-Glance for Public Sector Organizations

GoAnywhere automates, simplifies, secures

Here are just a few ways that GoAnywhere MFT allows your organization to reduce costs by streamlining processes and automating workflows:

  • Control the transfer of all sensitive files  
    Secured and audited at every step, authorized personnel can confidently send and receive sensitive data files. GoAnywhere MFT works with strong encryption standards including AES, SSL, SSH and Open PGP.
  • Fully and automatically audit file movements
    Regulations require documentation of who has access to sensitive files, where a file has been moved, and every person that might have had access to it along the way. GoAnywhere MFT automatically records complete audit trails of all file transfer transactions and confirms successful delivery.
  • Reduce costs and free up staff  
    Even with measures in place to securely transfer files, the time demands on IT can be significant. But with GoAnywhere MFT, the processes of sending and receiving files are fully automated so staff can focus on other tasks.
