Compliance audits can be stressful, especially when they come on the heels of data security standard updates and deadlines. For one global health technology company, a looming PCI DSS audit not only required them to work down their compliance checklist and ensure proper changes were made beforehand, it forced them to consider their file transfers. Were they compliant with the new PCI DSS version that had just released?
Like many organizations before them, this healthcare company used a mixture of free tools and manual tasks to exchange file transfers with their trading partners. Their marriage of CoreFTP and WinSCP for inbound and outbound transfers worked the best it could, but it was tumultuous and unsecure, failing to give them the streamlined processes they wanted. Customers manually provided the organization with their IP addresses in order to set up FTP transfers, and these server-to-server connections were a struggle to create and maintain.

Overall, the manual work it took to keep their file transfers running wasn’t worth the squeeze. During their PCI DSS audit, the health IT company realized they needed to dedicate more resources and architecture to their file transfers, find a way to streamline the creation of trading partner connections, and automate their batch file transfers, as well as reduce the time, money, and headaches spent on their existing processes. Finally, they had no real way to audit their current file transfers, which was a cornerstone of the Payment Card Industry's compliance requirements.
For this healthcare organization, enough was enough. It was time for a change.
They started evaluating secure file transfer solutions for their file transfer needs. After looking at ten different vendors, all with distinct positives and negatives, they chose GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer for their organization. GoAnywhere rose above the rest of the solutions, mainly due to its robust security settings, reverse proxy feature, auditing and reporting functionality, reliable support team, and help with PCI DSS compliance.
