FTP servers have been used to transmit sensitive files for decades. This legacy technology is frequently used by organizations and can server many purposes, but it has struggled to keep up with evolving business requirements. Unfortunately, FTP was not originally created with security in mind. As such, most FTP servers fail to provide the cybersecurity level needed to avoid disasters like data breaches, leaks, and errors.
GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer is an enterprise-level solution that gives IT and security teams a robust, secure way to manage their data exchange. GoAnywhere comes with a FTP server that can be used for standard or secure FTP transfers (SFTP through explicit SSL connection requests).
Good cybersecurity practices are ensured using strong authentication methods: users can be authenticated against Active Directory (AD), LDAP, IBM i user profiles, and more.
