Secure File Transfer for Education
Educational institutions are high risk for data breaches. Colleges and universities routinely collect, use and store extensive personal information including social security numbers, health records, credit card numbers, employment records, academic and disciplinary files, and financial information on students (and their families), donors and alumni.
Students trust that their records will not be shared with unauthorized parties, so institutions must be a vigilant steward of this data:
Integration and flexibility. It just works for us with minimal configuration, day after day. We could run it in a5x9's or 2x9's kind of configuration as we need too. That flexibility is just terrific. Did I also say it's really cost-effective too?
Brian R., System Administrator, Higher Education
Templates and the graphical user interface [in GoAnywhere] offer the ability to quickly customize FTP jobs that need it. For every project it's helpful.
Ron B., Senior Systems Administrator, Northwestern University
It works. It always works. We have never had a problem from the day it was installed. Updates are a breeze. New functions are being added all the time. Integration with IBM i native functions is outstanding.

When old hardware running manual scripts for transfers became obsolete, Northwestern University was tasked with replacing their systems with a secure solution that was feature-rich but not too complex or expensive. Running on a newer Linux 5 server, GoAnywhere encrypts and automates over 115 ongoing FTP projects. The university uses GoAnywhere for everything from processing applications and test scores to validating students for controlled garage access.
For one university, using a normal file transfer solution wasn't enough for their needs. Discover why The University of Cincinnati chose GoAnywhere MFT to reliably transfer and translate their research data on their weather gathering expedition in Alaska.
When Kansas City Public Schools moved to Windows, they knew they would need automation solutions robust and flexible enough to handle the needs of the district’s 35 centers and 15,000 students. By combining JAMS Workload Automation and GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer, KCPS was able to move files and schedule jobs with increased visibility and efficiency.
