GoAnywhere MFT™ will automate and secure file transfers on the IBM i platform using Secure FTP, Open PGP and other popular protocols and encryption standards.

GoAnywhere MFT can be installed on IBM i version 6.1 and higher on IBM Power Systems, as well as many other operating systems.

  • Automates and secures file transfers with trading partners, customers and internal servers
  • Provides an intuitive interface for setting up transfers and multi-step workflows
  • IBM i commands included for performing Open PGP encryption and
    decryption, SFTP transfers and ZIP compression
  • Integrates with CL, RPG and COBOL programs
  • Can be executed through GoAnywhere MFT's integrated scheduler or 3rd party schedulers

GoAnywhere MFT is much easier to use than the standard FTP and Open SSH server and client built into the IBM i operating system. GoAnywhere offers several advantages to IBM i shops:

  • No scripting or programming is required to use GoAnywhere MFT - Set up file transfers through an intuitive interface
  • SSH keys and SSL certificates can be created, imported and exported quickly without having to know cryptic commands
  • Includes a user management system - No additional IBM i user profiles need to be created for trading partners
  • Users can be locked into specific IFS folders with granular permissions and disk quotas
  • Includes comprehensive security controls - IP blacklists and whitelists, Brute Force attack monitors, Password Policies and Alerts
  • Triggers can automatically process files when they are uploaded or downloaded
  • Optionally encrypt files at rest with Open PGP and AES-256 encryption
  • Provides detailed audit logs and reports to meet compliance requirements
