Profitable Production Relies on Secure Data

Product manufacturing frequently requires the secure exchange of data files between departments, business partners, and sometimes government entities. Wouldn't it help if those exchanges were automated and fully tracked as well?

  • Secures integrity of private data as required by Sarbanes-Oxley 404 and 409
  • Creates and maintains records for 21 CFR 1.326-1.368 for food products

  • Generates audit trails required to demonstrate compliance
  • Maintains the security and integrity of file transmissions
  • Automates and manages file transfers through a centralized solution
  • Streamlines file transfer processes and workflows
  • Controls access to sensitive documents with user and group roles

Regulations for manufacturing vary depending on industry and geography, and the landscape is constantly changing. Still, chances are good you'll be accountable for meeting these requirements:

  • 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.

With GoAnywhere, the system can now run the complete automated file transfer process in just three hours instead of six days! We can also run a single ad-hoc customized price sheet at any time, and it only takes a minute.

Once we had GoAnywhere MFT in place, it seemed like a different world opened up for us because now we're finding other places where we can use it. For instance, we have also been able to transfer encrypted information to our health insurance provider. Before, we were using software on a PC to do it, and it was pretty cumbersome. Since our data resides on the System i, we were downloading files to the PC, encrypting it, then sending it out. Now, the person can just select an option on the menu and it does it all. For that person, it's saving quite a bit of time and work.
