IT Professionals and MFT

Take it from Them

As a company that takes immense pride in customer satisfaction, GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer (MFT) always enjoys hearing how and why our real-life customers are using our secure file transfer solution to keep their sensitive data safe.

We talked to a number of our customers about why they need an MFT solution like GoAnywhere and we found there to be one striking similarity among every organization – automation.

The Number One Reason: Automation

Automation is one of the most prominent reasons as to why organizations today need an MFT solution. Not only can you use automation to run workflows (projects) to transfer, encrypt, and process files, you can also utilize automation to monitor the transfers from start to finish, schedule them at later dates, and more.

When it comes to keeping data safe, our customers are using automation to assist their organizations in a variety of ways and for an array of reasons.
