  • SOX Section 404:
    Meet administrative/management self-assessment and compliance requirements to have internally established guidelines for maintaining integrity and security for file transfers.
  • Federal and State Business Tax Codes:
    File earnings, payroll, and other tax documentation based on secure and accurate information shared through reliable data transfer software.
  • Federal Trade Commission Regulations:
    • Ensure that tax filings exchanged with relevant parties must be based on secure, reliable and confirmable information.
    • Protect price monitoring and inventory control data shared with the FTC during file transfers.
  • 21 CFR Part 1.326-1.368 (Food Products):  
    Establish and maintain records needed to identify an immediate bio-terrorist threat which must be easily accessible and secure if transferred.

Case Studies

Dayton Parts Case Study

Manufacturing and distributing thousands of auto parts for light and heavy-duty trucks is no small task. For Dayton Parts, overseeing an extensive inventory list with customized pricing for their large customer base was becoming too time consuming to process manually. GoAnywhere allowed them to streamline creation and distribution of personalized price sheets saving hundreds of man hours and transforming a 6 day process into a mere 3 hours.

Woolrich Case Study

PCI DSS compliance, PGP encryption and flexibility for data transfers between various trading partners were among the main features the management team at Woolrich searched for when they began evaluating file transfer solutions. They chose GoAnywhere and were pleasantly surprised to find that it also could be used as solution in other areas for processes like transferring information to their health insurance provider.
