Do More in Less Time with GoAnywhere Director Release 4.6

Linoma Software [now HelpSystems] has a long history of bringing innovation to encryption and file transfer software. With release 4.6 of GoAnywhere Director, the development team focused on existing tools in an effort to reduce set up and maintenance of file transfer Jobs. The result was an extensive list of amazing time-saving improvements to benefit every user.

Streamline Administration

Batch jobs can now be organized and prioritized within their own custom job queues. Customers can assign a higher priority to certain jobs in order to meet their service level agreements with select trading partners. Jobs can also be executed sequentially using single-threaded job queues to ensure that file transfers occur in the order they were submitted.

release 4.6 - queues Manipulating groups of data is even easier in release 4.6. For instance, the values from a database table can be modified to meet a vendor's requirements when written to an XML, CSV, fixed-width, or Microsoft Excel file. In turn, before being imported into a database system, the values in a document can be read and altered to meet the application's requirements. File monitors can now be set up to easily scan SFTP, FTP and FTPS servers to execute a project workflow when a new, updated or deleted file is detected. With a step-by-step wizard, you can indicate the folders to scan, the file pattern and the frequency. If no files are found on the targeted server for the time period, GoAnywhere can alert personnel quickly with email notifications.

Take Control

release 4.6 - debuggerWhile GoAnywhere Director makes it easy to build complex file transfer projects, there are occasions when a user needs a deeper level of control and visibility into the steps being performed. This newest release introduces a debugging tool for project workflows. The new debugger allows an administrator to step through tasks and view or modify the value of variables after each task has executed. One of the more significant enhancements in release 4.6 is the ability to run remote commands on SSH enabled servers. The new "Execute SSH Commands" task allows administrators to pass command parameters using variables, and the output from the command can be directed to the job log or an output file. As an example, this new task can be used to automate software installations, perform upgrades and other admin functions on Linux and UNIX servers.

Improve Security

Security continues to be a top priority for Linoma Software [now HelpSystems]. The release of GoAnywhere Director 4.6 brings with it the ability to set up folders that secure data at rest using automatic AES-256 encryption. This helps to provide compliance with PCI DSS, HIPAA and other strict data security regulations.
