Secure File Sharing for Government and Public Sector

Text

Government agencies, military departments, and contractors face significant regulations and security policies when it comes to protecting, transferring, and ensuring fast delivery of sensitive data. An effective Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution is critical for helping agencies meet these strict security requirements.

Fortra offers two robust MFT solutions, both with unique strengths: GoAnywhere MFT, a comprehensive managed file transfer option that supports compliance and automation, and FileCatalyst, an accelerated file transfer solutions which delivers fast file transfers for organizations needing speed, even from remote locations, as well as large file capacity.

Challenges for Government File Sharing

Text

Federal government agencies must meet several compliance requirements, including FISMA, NIST, and PCI DSS.

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requirements are designed to help reduce the security risk to federal data. The act mandates that every agency create, document, and implement a plan to ensure that the information systems and the data they contain are kept secure. FISMA regulations apply to all agencies within the U.S. federal government, some state agencies, and any private sector organization in a contractual relationship with the government.

Fortra’s secure file transfer solutions, GoAnywhere MFT and FileCatalyst, can help government and military agencies secure and accelerate sensitive files, from anywhere in the world. These secure, automated, and user-friendly solutions simplify the sharing of authorized data between government agencies and their trading partners at the federal, state, county, and city levels, protect data confidentiality, and streamline data transfer activities by:

  • Encrypting data using FIPS 140-2 compliant AES, Triple DES and TLS algorithms
  • Authenticating all users so only intended parties can access data
  • Proving compliance with audit trails and reports
  • Automating and managing file transfers via a browser-based dashboard
  • Centralizing file transfer processes to control file access
  • Streamlining document workflows and administration
  • Safeguarding inbound ports of internal networks
  • Optimizing bandwidth to ensure reliable transfers, even from remote locations or intelligence from locations with unreliable links
  • Tracking and monitoring of deliveries to ensure sensitive information does not fall into the wrong hands
  • Accelerating transfer speeds for quick, easy collaboration for interdepartmental and inter-organizational collaboration from any location
