Antivirus and Malware Prevention in GoAnywhere MFT
To prevent viruses, malware and other malicious content from entering your organization, GoAnywhere MFT can integrate with antivirus solutions using the standard ICAP protocol. When a new file is uploaded to GoAnywhere MFT, the file contents can be sent to the antivirus software for scanning. If malicious content is found, GoAnywhere MFT can quarantine or delete the file, and then send an email alert to an administrator.
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) in GoAnywhere MFT
GoAnywhere MFT can send files to a DLP solution over the ICAP protocol to inspect the contents for sensitive information such as credit card numbers, personally identifiable information (PII) and health care information. The DLP solution will instruct GoAnywhere MFT on whether or not to proceed with the file transfer. For example, before files are sent to a trading partner through Secure Mail or SFTP, a Project in GoAnywhere MFT can scan the file for sensitive information. If the file contents are cleared, the transfer will occur as normal. If the file contents are deemed sensitive and blocked by the DLP solution, GoAnywhere MFT can alert administrators and deny the file transfer from occurring.
