GoAnywhere MFT implements secure FTP technology to protect sensitive file transfers using strong encryption technology and modern authentication methods. With support for the three secure FTP standards of SFTP, FTPS and SCP, GoAnywhere MFT will create encrypted tunnels between client and server systems. This not only secures file contents, but also protects any user credentials that flow over the connection.

A wide variety of management and analytical reports are available.

  • Globally Search all audit logs from a single screen
  • Filter Results based on date ranges, specific users, severity, etc.
  • Schedule Reports to run at future dates/times with email distribution
  • Export Audit Logs for viewing in Excel and other applications

Clustering for Scalability and Disaster Recovery

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

  • 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 remaining systems in the cluster
  • Does not require 3rd party software to support clustering
