With the increasing responsibilities IT professionals must juggle, including managing a myriad of daily tasks, addressing cybersecurity concerns, creating projects and business guidelines, meeting partner requests, and keeping abreast of compliance requirements, life is far too short for a file transfer solution that doesn’t meet your ever-changing needs.
If your current managed file transfer software has you stressed, switch it up! Migration to a different solution doesn’t have to be a painful experience. In fact, the new solution may be easier to navigate, more user friendly, and provide you with key features (like automation, scaling, alerting, and high availability) that streamline your file transfer processes.
Here are just a few things to look for when evaluating potential new MFT solutions:
There are some incredible MFT solutions available on the marketplace that are sure to provide all the file transfer features you need—without breaking the bank or being time-consuming to migrate to. This includes GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer, a secure, user-friendly solution that received 1st place in the March 2019 Info-Tech MFT Category Report.
Simplicity in a managed file transfer solution is great, but so is power. GoAnywhere MFT offers both in one robust, affordable package. If you’re stretched thin on your current managed file transfer solution, you might want to take GoAnywhere for a test spin! Here’s why:

We know migrating from one solution to another can be intimidating. Data and file transfers must be migrated from one solution to another, which can be a big time commitment—so we’ve gone ahead and made it easy!
Depending on the solution you’re migrating from, most vendor credentials and transfer specs can be quickly imported into GoAnywhere. In addition, by using variables in your GoAnywhere transfer projects, the number of file transfers that need to be configured is often reduced to a fraction of the number required in a previous solution.
Most users migrate to and set up GoAnywhere in just a few days. The learning curve is short, the software is intuitive, and all updates that happen post-implementation are a breeze. You can do it all yourself, too—no vendor assistance needed!
As for file transfers, most jobs are created and run in less than 10 minutes. Batch jobs can kick off, process, and be completed in minutes. Workflows for automation can be created through a drag-and-drop interface without requiring programming or scripting knowledge.
