Protecting Customer Data Integrity is Crucial for Retailers

Escalating numbers of instances of data theft by hackers emphasizes the need for safeguarding your company's reputation by giving your customers a safe place to use their credit cards.

GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer helps retailers preserve the integrity of their and their customers' data to meet compliance requirements as well as simplifying and automating data movement:

  • Protects your data in compliance with PCI DSS
  • Secures integrity of private data as required by Sarbanes-Oxley 404 and 409
  • Ensures that tax filings are based on secure, reliable and confirmable information
  • Generates audit trails required to demonstrate compliance
  • Implements internal policies that conform to Non-Bank Financial Services Rule
  • Meets FTC regulations for tax filings, inventory controls, and price monitoring
  • Maintains the security and integrity of file transmissions
  • Automates and manages file transfers via a browser interface
  • Streamlines file transfer processes and workflows
  • Controls access to sensitive documents with user and group roles
  • Supports transferring EDI X12 files to and from AS2 trading partners

Listed below are the primary mandates which retail IT departments must meet when transmitting data:

  • PCI DSS (Version 3.0):  
    Maintain the security of credit card transactions, including those sent electronically by batch via file transfer.
  • SOX Section 404:
    Establish and document internal guidelines describing how the integrity and security of data transfers will be maintained.
  • Federal and State Business Tax Codes:  
    Ensure that tax filings sent by FTP must be based on secure, reliable and confirmable information.
  • Non-Bank Financial Services Rule (April 2012):  
    As with SOX, develop and implement internal policies regarding the protection of data integrity and security when in motion.
  • Federal Trade Commission Regulations:  
    Protect price monitoring and inventory control data shared with the FTC during file transfers.

Team Lead/Sr. Systems Analyst | Retail

I have been using GoAnywhere since last 3+ years and was introduced to it when I was challenged to work on project connecting IBM platform to an external web server for data transit. Though there are several methods to use, GoAnywhere worked like a magic that helped me program with ease. Since then GoAnywhere is my go-to product for anything associated with data transfer, format translation and working with web services. It’s also great to see that this product is up to date with all latest data formats used in the industry that makes it a reliable one for most projects. Looking forward to more upgrades in the future to use.

Case Studies

Kwik Trip Case Study

Efficient workflows is key to keeping a regional chain of convenience stores running smoothly behind the scenes. For managing everything from customer addresses in a database to sending detailed fuel and tobacco tax reports to the Department of Revenue for multiple states, GoAnywhere helps keep Kwik Trip's data secure and files sending on schedule. Running nearly 20,000 projects a month, GoAnywhere has proven to be more than capable of handling the job.

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.
