A Customer's Perspective:


Faustino Gomez and Paula Rodriguez from Londen Insurance talk about using GoAnywhere to automate the movement of documents while keeping sensitive information secure.

Streamline Your Data Transfer Compliance Obligations

The insurance industry must meet onerous compliance burdens, as well as needing a way to simplify and automate data exchanges with business partners.

GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer gives insurance industry users considerable advantages:

  • Secures integrity of private data required by Sarbanes-Oxley 404 and 409
  • Safeguards data at rest and in transit as mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act
  • Meets requirements for information integrity required by GLBA
  • Proves HIPAA and HITECH healthcare compliance with audit trails and reports
  • Maintains integrity and security of files in motion for OIG, Medicare, and Medicaid
  • Automates and manages file transfers via a browser-based dashboard
  • Centralizes file transfer processes to control file access
  • Streamlines document workflows and administration
  • Safeguards inbound ports of internal networks
  • Controls intra- and inter-company access to data, especially during transfer
  • Transfers data in bulk for ETL and migrations
  • Exchanges ACH and payment reconciliation data with banks

GoAnywhere MFT At-A-Glance for Insurance Organizations

Secure Protocols

Supports all secure protocols: FTPS, SFTP, SCP, HTTP(S), PeSIT, and AS2


Includes popular encryption methods: Open PGP and Zip with AES encryption


Runs on most platforms: Windows, Linux, IBM i, Mac OS, AIX and UNIX, and VMware


Translates data to and from popular formats like EDI X12 and EDIFACT, Excel, XML, and JSON

The number of compliance regulations for insurance carriers governing data security, especially during file transfers, are onerous.

The Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA), Sarbanes-Oxley 404 and 409 (SOX), and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act all require insurance providers to clearly outline internal procedures that define how the integrity and security of private data will be maintained at rest and in transit.

In addition, health insurance companies must address additional issues:

  • OIG and State Anti-Fraud, Waste and Abuse Inspections:  
    Insurers for Medicare and Medicaid providers must have internally established guidelines and effective tools to maintain integrity and security of files in motion.
    These daunting mandates aim to prevent data breach and its consequences while securing sensitive data as it is shared among insurance companies and healthcare providers.

[GoAnywhere] is fairly simple for any IT professional to pick up and start building workflows on.... What I love about it is that it does the job and it does it well. For moving files, this is a great product.

GoAnywhere MFT is super easy and flexible. I’m able to create and test brand new file transfers in a couple of hours, as well as transfer unencrypted and encrypted files over SFTP. It took only minutes to set up the program to encrypt files using PGP. I can import both internal and external images into our imaging system automatically without manual intervention. My company also can create or parse Excel spreadsheets and update database tables simply by monitoring a directory for new files. We also use GoAnywhere MFT to create secure internal directories for each employee to store their check stubs, W2's, and any other confidential documents that only they can access using user IDs and passwords. Best of all we easily have set up notifications through email to notify the appropriate people when a scheduled project has run and whether it ran successfully or not. GoAnywhere has saved us numerous hours of programming and research!

Rather than doing this manually, we query our billing system, create an XML file, and put this in a format that can then be imported to create all the appropriate transactions automatically. This means completing 600-700 transactions in seconds versus someone going through every single one and doing it manually.

Douglas Walker , Assistant VP, Director of Software Engineering Services | Sentinel Benefits & Financial Group | Read Case Study

I work on Go Anywhere on a daily basis. I'm responsible for keeping it updated, writing and maintaining scripts, troubleshooting transfer issues and I absolutely love this product. The interface and tools to write, maintain and troubleshoot file transfers are extensive and very intuitive. And I just can't say enough about their support staff other then they are outstanding. We have had Go Anywhere for over 10 years and they are continuously adding features and making it better every year. I would highly recommend this application to any organization that either is thinking on replacing their file transfer vendor or is looking to automate it for the first time.
