SFTP (short for SSH File Transfer Protocol) is a network protocol organizations can use to secure and send file transfers over secure shell (SSH).
GoAnywhere MFT gives you the ability to automate, streamline, and safeguard traditional SFTP data transmissions. Whether your data exchange is with trading partners or other enterprise servers, GoAnywhere can help guarantee the delivery of your SFTP transfers by automatically retrying connections, resuming interrupted file transfers, and performing integrity checks on your transfers.

Audit trails (logs) are generated for all SFTP transmissions in GoAnywhere MFT to meet auditing and compliance requirements. The level of log detail can be controlled by an administrator on a per-Project basis. This detail can be configured to include all SFTP commands issued, SFTP messages, and file names transferred. Log messages can additionally be sent to a Syslog server using UDP or TCP connections.
