We are looking for ways to have minimal downtime for upgrades. Usually you can call a support person and get assistance at no charge, as long as you are current on maintenance. However if you need training on a new feature, it may be billable if it could take more than a few minutes of time by a support person. Thanks for your feedback!

The comprehensive suite of protocols and addition of workflows provide a quick easy to use solution.

2017-07-27

Building workflows to mange file processing is much more efficient than writing UNIX scripts. and auditing a process can be done simply for a single dashboard.

Pros

It manages all the protocols we need from a single dashboard and provides powerful functionality via workflows.

Cons

Does not have native support for parsing X12 EDI data. This can be accomplished via row-set usage and modification, but a basic X12 parser would be a huge help.

Quick and Easy

2018-12-27

Overall I would consider my experience with GoAnywhere MFT to be very positive over time my company has adopted the use of this product as our standard file management solution across all lines of business.

Pros

Once installed setting up basic file transfer flows is straight forward with plenty of logging and the ability to add alerting throughout every part.

Cons

Although the release notes indicate it is possible to setup the HTTPS Web Client to meet PCI compliance standards the documentation does not provide details on how to accomplish this.

Our experience with GoAnywhere has been quite positive. It has greatly exceeded our expectations.

2017-10-12

It helped us with our PCI compliance and offered us additional flexibility in our data workflows.

Pros

While our specific need was to offer our business partners and vendors secure data transmission via SFTP, we were very pleased to know that GoAnywhere supports a number of additional secure file transfer protocols, including FTPS, HTTPS, and GoAnywhere Secure Mail (with an optional Outlook plugin).

Cons

It could be operator error on my part, or it could be that I am trying to do something that is better suited for GoAnywhere Agents.

2017-05-24

Security, compliance with international standards.

Pros

Easy to use, intuitive interface, processing power and easy implementation.

Cons

Perhaps licensing between IBM's replicated systems can lead to incidents. Since the license files are copied from a main machine to a replica machine (HA) and this is the possibility of creating conflicts if the client does not know how to handle this type of behavior.

GoAnywhere: All things to all protocols

2018-10-05

Having been immersed in Internet Protocol file management processes since the 90's I've utilized several applications for the execution of FTP, SFTP, SMTP, SSH, etc. tasks.

Pros

It handles just about any protocol and provides all the necessary tools for simple, verifiable scripting of just about any file management solution one could require.

Cons

I suppose if it made coffee, it would be perfect.

GoAnywhere helped us replace antiquated processes

2017-12-04

In addition to replacing these processes, we were able to now provide the IT department with a centrally managed system with audit logging, security, and backups.

Pros

Coupled with the GateWay product, we have a secure outward facing sFTP solution as well. Audit reporting works well and the automated workflows really help is in creating multiple jobs accomplishing similar tasks quickly.

Cons

More canned projects to build off of would also be helpful in jump starting users with limited programming abilities.
