In July of 2015, GoAnywhere Director was upgraded and renamed to GoAnywhere MFT, which is the next evolution in Managed File Transfer technology. GoAnywhere MFT merges workflow automation capabilities (adapted from GoAnywhere Director) with secure FTP server and collaboration features (adapted from GoAnywhere Services). This provides customers with a unified browser-based interface, centralized logging and reporting.
The final release of GoAnywhere Director (version 4.7) will be supported by Linoma Software [now HelpSystems] up until December 31, 2016. Patches may be provided for critical issues found in version 4.7 of GoAnywhere Director up until that time. However, depending on the nature of the issue, you may be required to upgrade to GoAnywhere MFT to receive a patch.
If you are a current customer of GoAnywhere Director and are active (paid up) on your maintenance fees, you can upgrade to GoAnywhere MFT at no additional charge and still enjoy the licensed features which your organization originally purchased. The new GoAnywhere MFT version can be downloaded from the customer portal at my.goanywhere.com. An upgrade file and migration guide are provided in this portal.
Please note that a new license key will need to be issued by HelpSystems in order to use the new GoAnywhere MFT 5.0 release. To get the license key, please contact HelpSystems by phone or email.
