We were looking to replace a PC that was running many batch scripts using the task scheduler and human operators to accomplish tasks. The PC was "ghosted" as a backup and ran old software for ftp transfers and PGP/email transfer jobs to name a few. With GoAnywhere we now have replaced these processes with centrally managed file transfers in a secure and controlled manner. We are able to connect and transfer files between many disparate systems in-house and also out of network, reliably and with accountability.

What I like the best is the web-based access, the ease-of-use and the built-in documentation. The audit logging has replaced our need to manually create log files. We have more flexibility in regard to scheduling and notifications. GoAnywhere MFT has taken the place of many of our previous scripts and scheduled tasks. There are paid for modules which allow access to other features, such as the built-in reporting, which help minimize costs to only the ones necessary for your environment.

We needed a tool that would ensure secure and dependable data transmissions. We tried many different tools but none were as versatile and dependable as GoAnywhere.

Meet HIPAA and HITECH File Transfer Requirements


Transferring sensitive records between hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, and insurance companies using legacy file transfer methods or home-grown scripts subjects patient data to increasing risk.

The importance of protecting PHI and the integrity of records means that meeting the "duty of care" requirement also includes information security. Patients should expect that their data will be secured by the trusted organization. As healthcare organizations rapidly adopt health information technology like EHR software, these unsecure file transfer methods are creating risk that leaves healthcare providers open to vulnerabilities and data breaches. It’s critical for organizations to secure their data and updated business processes to ensure they meet HIPAA and HITECH’s strict compliance requirements.

GoAnywhere MFT can help healthcare organizations achieve HIPAA- and HITECH-compliant file transfers, including with easy translations to and from EDI X12. Explore the security requirements we can satisfy for HIPAA/HITECH standards in this data sheet.
