GoAnywhere MFT is a managed file transfer and secure FTP solution that runs on Microsoft Azure Cloud Computing Platform and Services. GoAnywhere MFT automates and secures file transfers with your trading partners, customers and enterprise servers from your Azure instance.
Installing and running a secure Azure FTP server is an effortless process with GoAnywhere MFT. There is no need to set up IIS, Microsoft clustering, or any other 3rd party solution. Everything you need is included and managed for you:
The intuitive design and modular feature set allows you to be up and running on Azure in no time. GoAnywhere MFT requires a minimum of 300 MB of disk space (not including user data) and 512 MB of RAM. GoAnywhere MFT can be installed on your choice of Azure supported Windows or Linux operating systems, such as RedHat, CentOS, SUSE, Debian, Ubuntu, and others.
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 data security constraints, internal policies, and business requirements. Via extensive audit logs and detailed reporting tools, admins can monitor what's happening with their file transfers within a single interface. Email and text notifications can be set up and alert users to both successful and failed file transfers.
Securing files is GoAnywhere's greatest strength. 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, including 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.
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.
GoAnywhere's Azure Data Lake Storage Cloud Connector allows you to exchange secure file transfers between your private network and the Azure Data Lake Storage. This integration is available from the GoAnywhere Cloud Connector Marketplace and can be used to upload, rename, download, move, and delete files, as well as manage specified directories in Azure Data Lake Storage directly from your GoAnywhere MFT environment.
