Free FTP Server and Client Helps Businesses Improve Security and Audit File Transfers

GoAnywhere MFT's integrated FTP Server and Client for automating and auditing file transfers is now available as a Free Edition of the enterprise-class Managed File Transfer solution. 

GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer Free FTPThis free FTP software can be installed on a variety of platforms including Windows, Linux, Mac OS, UNIX and IBM i, providing flexibility to organizations of all sizes.  GoAnywhere MFT improves FTP security with features like AD authentication, granular folder permissions, password policies to comply with PCI DSS, brute force and DoS attack monitors, and IP blacklists/whitelists.

"Legacy FTP servers are lacking the security controls, user management and detailed audit logs needed to comply with regulations like PCI DSS and HIPAA" says Bob Luebbe, Chief Architect at Linoma Software [now HelpSystems]. "With the free edition, any organization can now take advantage of the comprehensive FTP features in GoAnywhere MFT."

Using the free FTP client from GoAnywhere, organizations can add automation to their file transfers.  The ability to schedule transfers and scan for new or modified files on local or remote systems reduces manual processes and the risk of human error.  This saves time and money while improving productivity through reliable data delivery.

The GoAnywhere FTP server makes it possible to set access controls and generate detailed audit logs on all file transfer activity.  This offers a layer of regulatory and policy compliance to organizations currently using FTP to exchange files with trading partners.

GoAnywhere MFT is an on-premises solution that provides centralized control over data access. There are no upfront costs or renewal fees for this fully scalable FTP solution. GoAnywhere MFT can be easily upgraded to meet the changing needs of any business through the purchase of secure file transfer protocols, integrated Open PGP encryption, advanced workflows and in-depth reporting.

This free software installs in minutes and is available for download from the GoAnywhere website at https://www.goanywhere.com/free-ftp.
