OpenPGP Encryption

Open PGP, also known as GPG, is a popular encryption standard that protects the privacy and integrity of sensitive files. Open PGP implements asymmetric (public key) cryptography to provide strong security and repudiation of files. GoAnywhere MFT provides robust support for Open PGP, allowing you to:

  • Encrypt files with one or more Public Keys
  • Decrypt files with Private Keys
  • Sign files with Private Keys
  • Verify digital signatures in files using Public Keys
  • Generate full audit logs of all Open PGP encryption and decryption processes

Open PGP is used by banks, financial institutions, healthcare organizations and other highly regulated industries to protect their most sensitive files.
