Last spring, Linoma [now HelpSystems] began AS2 Drummond certification to improve GoAnyhwere MFT's AS2 cross platform compatibility. While we anticipate GoAnywhere MFT will be fully certified by November, GoAnywhere MFT 5.1 includes several back-end updates to ensure compatibility with other AS2 vendors. GoAnywhere customers who rely on AS2 for file transfers can be assured GoAnywhere meets compliance with optional profiles for:
AS2 security features have become more secure and flexible with two new important updates to Web User Profiles. AS2 now supports dual factor authentication using certificates and passwords, and administration becomes simpler by using the same Certificate SHA1 fingerprint across multiple web users.
GoAnywhere MFT 5.0 introduced a new advanced reporting engine to provide administrators with file transfer, workflow, and system information in PDF reports. MFT 5.1 expands the reporting features by including four new reports:
GoAnywhere MFT can alert administrators when critical events occur on the system. MFT 5.1 expands the alerting feature to monitor for when Web Users become deactivated, when the connection between GoAnywhere Gateway and MFT has been interrupted, and when a change occurs in a GoAnywhere Cluster.
GoAnywhere Command APIs allows external applications to run file transfers and workflows in GoAnywhere MFT. In GoAnywhere MFT 5.1, new commands have been created to aid users with the migration of features from one installation to another. These commands include:
Bandwidth monitoring and throttling has been added for all Web User and workflows transfers between select FTP, FTPS, and SFTP Resources. This allows administrators to control how much bandwidth is being used by a specific process. A new Active Transfers page displays the current file transfers.
