New GoAnywhere Release Automates and Secures File Transfers in Cloud and Private Networks

Omaha, NE. May 8, 2017 – Linoma Software [now HelpSystems], today announced the release of version 5.5 of its GoAnywhere managed file transfer (MFT) solution, which allows organizations to deploy MFT agents across the enterprise to automate, secure and audit all of their file transfers from a single, centralized location. This new innovation adds to an already extensive suite of security and automation features including encryption at rest and in transit, batch and ad-hoc file transfer, peer-to-peer file collaboration, and more.

With this new version, customers can easily install MFT agents on almost any server or workstation where file transfers need to be performed including Windows, Linux, UNIX, IBM i and Mac OS systems.  These systems can reside on-premises or in cloud infrastructure such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) or Microsoft Azure. This allows for organizations with complex and ever-changing environments to greatly reduce the manual repeatable work associated with the complexity allowing IT professionals to focus on more strategic initiatives.

The MFT agents are managed by a central deployment of GoAnywhere, where customers can easily configure and schedule agent file transfers right from their browser. This new version of GoAnywhere not only transfers all files securely, but also gathers key information about the transfers for simple, consolidated auditing and reporting. This unique approach provides visibility of all file transfers within the organization.

“The use cases for MFT agents are really endless,” said Bob Luebbe, President and Chief Architect at Linoma Software [now HelpSystems]. “Whether it’s a franchise needing to synchronize files with its store locations, or a healthcare system needing to move PHI data between its data center and satellite clinics, the deployment of MFT agents will greatly simplify those processes.”

MFT agent Features and At-a-Glance

  • Automates and secures file transfers within a centrally managed environment
  • Monitors agent systems for new or modified files
  • Schedules file transfers on agent systems to run at future dates/times
  • Provides additional workflow capabilities such as compression, decompression, data parsing, database integration, and native command execution
  • Sends automatic alerts via e-mail or text messages if file transfers fail on agents
  • Feeds audit data to the central GoAnywhere MFT solution for reporting
