Good Morning,
We would like to set up secure folders for our business partners. Our business processes require us to extract the files uploaded/downloaded to various internal servers for processing. Is there an easy way to decrypt and move files out of the encrypted/secure folders, and then encrypt and move them back in after processing to make them available for customers? I'm hoping we have the freedom to use PGP/GPG and move files around without restrictions vice processing everything within GoAnywhere.
Thank you,
Leon

GAMFT gives you multiple options for handling this type of transfer.

Initially, we provide Encrypted Folders. In general, this allows you to have files dropped into a location by your customer where the file is Encrypted while at rest. Initiating a Work Flow Process will allow you to move/copy/extract/decrypt/etc the file and process as needed.

We do handle PGP/GPG encrypted files within our Work Flow process as well. If you do not use the Encrypted Folders option above, then this would be your next option. Have the Trading partner send you data encrypted with your public PGP key, then decrypt it on the fly after receipt of the file, process etc.

These are just 2 of the options you have ... but, to answer your question, yes ... we can provide the Secure Folders you need for Business Partners to transfer/send files securely from start to finish.

Thanks... we are in fact planning to use encrypted folders, so I just need to set up a project to decrypt and move files to a network share as needed. I'm assuming that since it's an encrypted folder the files that we move back in after processing will automatically be encrypted and waiting for customer SFTP transfers.

Yes .. anytime you move files into our out of the defined Encrypted Folder while using GoAnywhere will automatically be Encrypted/Decrypted. If you move files into/out of outside of GoAnywhere, then no ... it will remain encrypted/unencrypted.
