02 Sep 2021 What sets GoAnywhere MFT apart
GoAnywhere MFT has a whole suite of features that were designed to be flexible and to meet customer’s needs. There is a lot of functionality packed into it and for good reason. Organisations have a wide range of needs and a wide variety of compliance requirements to think about when making a decision of what MFT product they will choose for their workflows.

So, without further ado, let’s get into what sets GoAnywhere apart as a top-of-the-line MFT solution.
3 Ways that GoAnywhere MFT raises the standard
GoAnywhere is the fastest-growing MFT product in the world because it is a single solution that integrates and securely moves data anywhere through one beautifully designed user interface.
However, there are specific components that make it so powerful, easy to use, and secure for organisations to employ within their own IT infrastructure. Let’s break some of them down.
1. Simplifying Data Transfers and Data Integration
GoAnywhere is packed with features that are very good at simplifying data transfers for anyone that uses the solution. GoAnywhere is the one of the only MFT solutions that works on every operating system as well as on-premises and in the cloud. This capability gives organisations a highly flexible way of transferring data within and outside of organisations’ IT environments.
In addition, GoAnywhere can integrate with dozens of out-of-the-box integrations for many major applications and drag-and-drop configurations of automated workflows. That number is set to rise in the future, so GoAnywhere will only provide further integration benefits as time goes on. Because these tools are web-based and sport a modern interface, users are able to build on the fly, from any device, and from anywhere.
2. Secure End-to-End Data Movement
GoAnywhere is also very good at securing data integration and movement. This includes from server to server, from user to system, and from person to person. Data integration and movement with GoAnywhere meets AES encryption standards, uses the Open PGP standard, and offers SFTP, SCP, FTPS, AS2, and HTTPS protocols. The wide array of compliance achievements and protocol capabilities is just one reason that the GoAnywhere suite of tools has garnered attention for being such a strong force in organisations’ IT infrastructures.
3. Achieve Enhanced Visibility and Analytics
One especially important way any MFT product can fall below the standard is by allowing unrestricted user visibility and access to data transfer analytics. With customisable reporting options as well as dashboard control, GoAnywhere gives users a much simpler way of monitoring data transfers being conducted within and transferring outside of their IT walls. In addition, users can access highly detailed audit logs of data transfers which can be required for maintaining compliance standards and meeting regulations.
You can go anywhere with GoAnywhere
GoAnywhere has proven to be a very strong solution for organisations because it only requires users to implement one product to get all the functionality listed above. GoAnywhere offers a seamless, customisable, and intuitive solution, all the way from install and use to product maintenance. This solution is meant to ensure that organisations have a safe, secure, and easy-to-use method of transferring data, all in the name of helping organisations build a better IT.
