Managed File Transfer & SFTP for AIX and UNIX

GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer (MFT) is a UNIX and AIX SFTP solution that automates and secures file transfers with trading partners, customers, employees, and enterprise servers. Running GoAnywhere on AIX or UNIX is a dependable way to protect your data exchange and achieve extensive auditing logs and reporting for compliance requirements.

GoAnywhere MFT features for AIX and UNIX include:

  • Support for popular standards (SFTP, SCP, FTPS, OpenPGP, GZIP, TAR, etc.)
  • An integrated scheduler
  • Folder monitors
  • The utilization of existing NFS and CIFS mounts and dynamic network shares
  • The ability to run transfers from Cron jobs and external schedulers/scripts
  • The execution of existing shell scripts and remote SSH commands
  • Support for physical and virtualized environments

"We migrated all our existing file transfers to GoAnywhere. [They are] very responsive on any questions or issues (which are very few) that we have. I would recommend [GoAnywhere MFT] to anyone looking for a solid file transfer solution."

Running GoAnywhere MFT on AIX and UNIX Platforms

GoAnywhere MFT can be implemented on a variety of operating systems, including but not limited to:

  • IBM AIX
  • Sun Solaris
  • HP-UX

GoAnywhere’s intuitive interface and comprehensive workflow features help to eliminate the need for custom programs/scripts, single-function tools, and manual processes that were traditionally needed. This innovative solution will reduce costs, improve the quality of file transfers, and help your organization comply with data security audits, policies, and regulations.

GoAnywhere uses SFTP for AIX and UNIX to protect sensitive file transfers using strong encryption technology and modern authentication methods. This creates encrypted tunnels between client and server systems which provides confidentiality and integrity of critical transmissions. SFTP also protects any user credentials that flow over the connection.

  • LDAP integration for user authentication and synchronization
  • Supports running in a chroot jail
  • Multi-factor authentication with user ID’s, passwords, keys, and certificates
  • Supports large files with auto-resume and integrity checks to help guarantee delivery

High Availability and Scalability

GoAnywhere MFT can scale to meet high volumes of file transfers for the enterprise. With its clustering technology, file transfers and other processes can be distributed across multiple systems for load balancing. Clustering also provides true "active-active" support for disaster recovery in mission-critical environments.

GoAnywhere's HA features include:

  • Horizontal scaling for systems added to a cluster
  • The ability to organize workflow jobs by run priorities and job queues
  • Load balancing for incoming connections from trading partners
  • The ability to auto-failover to active systems in the cluster
  • Independence from third-party software clustering support
