GoAnywhere MFT is Now Certified VMware Ready

VMware Ready iconGoAnywhere, a provider of innovative solutions for securing and transferring sensitive data, today announced GoAnywhere Director and GoAnywhere Services [combined and renamed GoAnywhere MFT in 2015] have completed testing and validation to receive VMware Ready certification. GoAnywhere Director and GoAnywhere Services are currently the only secure managed file transfer solutions that are VMware Ready certified for virtualized environments.

The VMware certification process requires ISV Partners to implement a full VMware environment and create test logs using VMware's testing application. After VMware's careful review, they authorize the application as VMware Ready.

VMware virtualization is trusted by over 190,000 customers for its proven system management and reliability. The goal of server virtualization is to consolidate physical servers - saving power and other infrastructure related costs. "We initiated the certification process for GoAnywhere Director and GoAnywhere Services with VMware to ensure all file transfers and data translation will remain secure within an Enterprise's private cloud or virtualized environment," says Dirk Zwart, Director of Technology Alliances for GoAnywhere.

"Virtualization doesn't fit the traditional mold of dedicated servers to handle a corporation's encryption of sensitive data, secure data transfer or data translation functions," says Bob Luebbe, Chief Architect of GoAnywhere. "There were many variables to consider, but we were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to implement a full VMware environment. The hosts and virtual servers were easy to manage and move around."

"GoAnywhere is an ideal secure managed file transfer solution for companies using virtualized servers," says Bob Luebbe. "It works with most platforms and provides businesses a secure environment to connect with customers and trading partners."

GoAnywhere tests its software for interoperability with Enterprise-level operating systems - SUSE Linux, Red Hat, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, i5/OS, Windows, Mac OS X; popular browsers, and compliance with commercial and federal requirements like PCI DSS, HIPAA, and SOX. "Partnering with VMware provides our customers with confidence that they are supported regardless of their configuration," concludes Dirk Zwart.
