I love everything about this software. We have reduced the number of hours needed for manual or tedious tasks saving us tens of thousands of dollars in labor each year. This software more than pays for itself in the hours we save and allows our employees to focus on higher level, less repetitive tasks. We currently utilize GoAnywhere MFT, Secure Folders, Secure Mail and Secure Forms. It does EVERYTHING. We read and write Excel files, bounce data against or get data from our SQL database, pick files up from vendor FTPs, deliver files through Secure Folders to FTP, have customer facing and internal only web forms to save on paperwork, and countless scheduled jobs to both reduce mid-day SQL overhead and automate several previously extremely tedious, manual tasks and exports.

Vincent M. , Manager | IT Systems and Development

GoAnywhere MFT allowed us to eliminate and reduce the need for custom programming to transfer files and database records between dissimilar database management systems.We found GoAnywhere to be highly intuitive, flexible, and easy to use. Currently, we are using GoAnywhere to pump database records between MS SQL 2005 and DB2. We are also using GoAnywhere to centralize, automate, and securely transfer files between our Intel and System i platform via SFTP (SSH). GoAnywhere is additionally helpful for database importing and exporting of CSV files.The customer support from Linoma Software [now HelpSystems] has been outstanding. Whenever we had a question or issue, Linoma was able to answer right away and provide us with a solution.

The stability and ease of use and setup have been lifesavers for us. We have been able to hand off almost all of our MFT tasks to our operations group, rather than taking programming resources for those functions. We also have seen a drastic improvement in the number of transmission errors or dropped connections. Support has also been excellent. Upgrades have been seamless, non-events. Above all, the price was significantly lower than almost all of the other MFT products we looked at. We couldn't be happier with this product.

Meet PCI DSS Financial File Transfer Requirements

Banking & Finance

The integrity of personal information is regularly threatened by:

  • Data breaches
  • Credit card fraud
  • Unsecure customer data

Current cybersecurity measures and file transfer requirements are necessary to keep financial data and bank transfers safe from increasing risk, but surprisingly, many organizations’ file transfer processes are lacking, creating accidental risks for their data security.

Achieve PCI DSS-Compliant File Transfers

Some banks and financial organizations use home-grown scripts or legacy file transfer methods to protect their file transfers, but these processes leave them open to vulnerabilities and data breaches. The methods can be outdated, complicated, and prone to user error. It’s critical to follow PCI DSS requirements for file transfers instead in order to keep cardholder data safe from unauthorized access.

GoAnywhere MFT can help organizations in the banking and finance industry achieve PCI DSS-compliant file transfers. Explore the security requirements we can satisfy for this standard in our datasheet on meeting the Payment Card Industry’s standards with GoAnywhere MFT.
