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.

The license file should not be copied between different systems. This is well documented in the Installation/Configuration manual. Sorry about any problems that this created for you! Feel free to reach out to your rep or our support team for further assistance.

Thanks for your feedback. Although there are over 1200 pages of documentation with lots of step-by-step instructions, we are always looking for ways to improve our manuals. We also have video tutorials that you may want to check out at https://www.goanywhere.com/tutorials/gamft. If you have specific suggestions for our documentation, please contact support to raise an enhancement request.

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

Would like to see more "use case" scenarios and sample projects available on the support portal.

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.

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!

GOANYWHERE MFT Crazy Easy!!!

2017-04-13

We also use Goanywhere MFT to create secure internal directories for each employee to store their check stubs, W2's, and any other confidential documents that only they can access using USER ID's and passwords. Best of all we easily have set up notifications through email to notify the appropriate people when a scheduled project has run and whether it ran successfully or not.

MFT Review

2017-03-23

From the beginning of my exposure to Linoma, I've had very good experiences from my training of the product by Linoma and through the use of the MFT product as well as Support. The Support response has been quick and professional. It serves our purpose greatly especially since we are a PCI compliant company, to know that this software is also PCI compliant takes a weight of our shoulders.

Pros

It's ease of use, the functionality and, of course the security. The user guide is fantastic too.

Cons

I haven't found anything I do not like or like the least about this product.

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.

Exceptional Managed File Transfer System

2017-10-23

The audit logging is fantastic.

Pros

The program has easily taken the place of many of our previous scripts and scheduled tasks and has allowed for greater flexibility with scheduling and notifications.

Cons

The most difficult thing was getting used to using variables in conditional if/else statements. There are some definite best-practices which will help with organization and making changes in the future, such as setting variables for file and path names and then referencing those in later steps.
