GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer

GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer

GoAnywhere MFT is a managed file transfer solution that streamlines the exchange of data between systems, employees, customers, and trading partners. It provides centralized control with extensive security settings and detailed audit trails. For ultimate flexibility, GoAnywhere is deployable on-premises, in the cloud on platforms like Microsoft Azure and AWS, or within hybrid environments. Our MFT solution runs easily on platforms like Windows, Linux, AIX, and the IBMi.

GoAnywhere MFT's intuitive interface and comprehensive workflow features will help to eliminate the need for custom programs/scripts, single-function tools and manual processes that were traditionally needed.
