This innovative solution will reduce cost while improving the quality of file transfers. GoAnywhere MFT on Azure can help your organization to comply with data security audits, policies, and regulations with extensive audit logs and detailed reporting tools.

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.
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.
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.
