HTTPS Web Client for Ad-Hoc File Transfers

Watch this Web Client demo

GoAnywhere Services™ provides a HTTPS web client that allows your employees, customers and trading partners to perform secure ad-hoc file transfers directly through their browser. This is a simple alternative to other file transfer methods (e.g. FTP) since end-users do not need additional software or special training.

The HTTPS Web Client can be used by authorized users to download files from (or upload files to) designated folders on your server. You can optionally enable the Secure Mail module in the Web Client so users can send files to other individuals using email notifications and secure HTTPS download links.

HTTPS Web Client features include:

  • Users can quickly transfers files between their computer and the server using their preferred browser
  • Server folders can be secured with granular permissions (upload, download, etc.) for each user
  • Users can collaborate with others by sharing authorized files and folders
  • Robust security allows meeting compliance requirements like PCI DSS, HIPAA and state privacy laws 
  • Supports user authentication types of Active Directory (AD), LDAP, IBM i profiles, database and certificates
  • Self service; users can register their own accounts (with approval) and reset their own passwords
  • Event triggers can automatically process files or send email notifications
  • Allows only strong NIST-certified encryption algorithms when in FIPS 140-2 Compliance mode
  • Generates full audit trails of all file transfers. Users can view their own logs
  • The interface can be re-branded with your organization's logo and custom disclaimer message
  • Supports popular browsers including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome.
  • Highly scalable with no limits on the number of users
  • Multilingual with support for English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese and Bahasa languages

Both a basic (HTML) interface and an enhanced (applet) interface can be made available to end-users, based on your preferences. See examples below.

Basic Interface

The basic interface is easy to learn since files and folders can be worked with through intuitive web pages. No browser plug-ins are needed for the basic interface, allowing access from even tightly secured networks.
