PCI-Compliant File Transfers

Banking and finance organizations have a lot to consider when it comes to running smoothly. With an increasing demand for online access and strong cybersecurity practices, balancing customer needs with business needs can be stressful sometimes even overwhelming.

Struggles with inefficient existing processes and compliance for privacy laws and regulations can also distract from achieving critical file transfer requirements, like encrypted data, optimal communication with trading partners, ad activity logs for auditing and reporting.

Some organizations use legacy tools and manual scripts to meet their
needs, but this approach often creates more problems than it solves. As a result, more banks and financial agencies are starting to move to managed file transfer solutions like GoAnywhere MFT to simplify, secure, and automate their data transfers.

The benefits of secure file transfer

Automate Batch File Transfers:

Configure when your file transfers should execute with GoAnywhere’s built-in scheduler. Batch file transfers can be scheduled to run at a future date and time. Easily execute multiple file transfers concurrently, trigger one when another process completes, or kick off a transfer immediately when a file is added to a specific folder using GoAnywhere’s scheduling features.

Reduce Your Costs:

Eliminate the need for custom scripts, legacy programs, and homegrown tools. These file transfer methods introduce the possibility of user errors and unwanted vulnerabilities, lack robust auditing capabilities, and require in-depth knowledge to update or expand them all of which can be costly to navigate and maintain.

Support Your Team:

Your organization’s IT professionals can control GoAnywhere from any secure location with the flexible, browser-based interface. File transfers can be performed from anywhere through HTTPS, and mobile support will give your team flexibility to work from any device.
