Secure Azure FTP Server Solution: GoAnywhere MFT

GoAnywhere MFT is a Managed File Transfer and Secure FTP solution on Microsoft Azure Cloud Computing Platform and Services that will automate and secure file transfers with your trading partners, customers and enterprise servers.

How GoAnywhere MFT on Microsoft Azure Works

Automate, centralize, and secure file transfer activity with GoAnywhere, a secure FTP server solution for Microsoft Azure.

GoAnywhere’s intuitive interface and comprehensive advanced workflow features help eliminate the need for custom programs and scripts, legacy tools, and manual processes. This innovative MFT solution helps organizations reduce costs while improving the quality of their file transfers.

Running GoAnywhere MFT on Microsoft Azure can help you comply with compliance audits, internal policies, and business requirements. Using extensive audit logs and detailed reporting tools, admins can monitor what's happening with their file transfers via a single interface. Email and text notifications can be set up and alert users to successful or failed file transfers.

File security is GoAnywhere's top concern. By providing a secure Azure FTP server solution, GoAnywhere implements secure FTP technology (e.g., SFTP, FTPS, AS2, HTTPS, etc.) to protect sensitive files when in motion. Strong encryption methods, like Open PGP and AES, add an extra layer of security to data and can be automated to streamline a high volume of file transfers.

All these measures come together to create encrypted tunnels between client and server systems. These tunnels provide confidentiality for both the sender and the receiver and ensure the integrity of critical transmissions. Additional multi-factor authentication options in GoAnywhere protect any user credentials that flow over the connection.

High availability and clustering on Azure with GoAnywhere is easy.

High Availability and Scalability

GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer on Azure can be scaled to meet high volumes of file transfers for the enterprise. With the clustering technology in GoAnywhere MFT, file transfers and other processes can be distributed across multiple Azure VM instances for load balancing. When an instance is taken offline, GoAnywhere MFT automatically routes file transfers and jobs to other GoAnywhere MFT installations in the cluster.

  • Horizontally scale by adding more systems to the cluster
  • Organize workflow jobs by run priorities and job queues
  • Load balance incoming connections from trading partners
  • Auto-failover to the active systems in the cluster
  • Does not require 3rd party software to support clustering
Microsoft Active Directory

Microsoft Active Directory

GoAnywhere MFT includes a robust set of user management features enabling trading partners and employees to collaborate and manage file transfers. These user accounts can authenticate against Active Directory allowing users to specify their corporate credentials. GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer on Azure can synchronize users and groups in Active Directory to automate user provisioning.

Microsoft SQL Server

Microsoft SQL Server

GoAnywhere MFT can connect to a variety of databases to export or import data including Microsoft SQL Server. For example, a Project can extract data from SQL Server and place the contents in a file. Then the Project could encrypt or compress it and store it on the network or distribute the file to a remote server. GoAnywhere MFT can also utilize Microsoft SQL Server to store product configuration and audit log information. GoAnywhere MFT supports clustered SQL Server environments and can optionally use Windows Integrated Security for authentication.
