Migrating from MOVEit

8 July 2024

The rapid escalation of cybercrime is causing many organisations across the Asia-Pacific region to upgrade to more advanced file transfer solutions.

That includes replacing Managed File Transfer (MFT) systems such as MOVEit with the class-leading GoAnywhere MFT suite.

As our region’s local experts in MFT, at Generic Systems Australia we’re adept at helping customers simply, quickly and affordably migrate from their existing data transfer approaches.

Many Options - but only one of them “Best”

There are plenty of options when it comes to selecting a file transfer solution… from free, unsecure methods to the fully-featured market leader.

However, as cybercrime continues to surge, many companies are concluding that the benefits of upgrading to the class-leading MFT more than justify the relatively minor investment required. They understand that maintaining a ‘circle of trust’ with their customers and supply chains is paramount to their business’s ongoing profitability.

So, why is GoAnywhere MFT consistently declared by independent studies to be the leading MFT …?

Superior Security

“Robust Security” is most often the top of mind consideration for companies seeking the optimal MFT solution.

GoAnywhere MFT takes all aspects of data security seriously, protecting your sensitive data both “in motion” and “at rest”.

Maintaining GoAnywhere’s security is a primary focus for its software development team. They consistently stay across the latest security standards and threat monitoring to ensure up-to-date compliance with regulations, frameworks, and standards.

Easy Centralised Control

MOVEit requires you to install two products (MOVEit Automation and MOVEit Transfer) to enable full MFT functionality.

Most companies find GoAnywhere’s centralised, browser-based dashboard - an intuitive “one stop shop” - a more efficient means of managing their data flows. 

The Need for Speed

Included in GoAnywhere is GoFast, a file transfer acceleration protocol which can transmit data considerably faster than traditional FTP.

The patented technology in GoFast takes the best of UDP’s speed and adds reliability and rate control.

Drag & Drop Workflows

Scripting (as required by MOVEit for some tasks) is clunky, time consuming and confusing for non-expert users.

Through its breadth of Automated Workflows capabilities, GoAnywhere enables end users to quickly and easily build workflows. Manual and automated tasks can even be combined into one master workflow.

Further, GoAnywhere provides easy reporting on partner Service Level Agreements, alerting you to any workflow issues before your trading partners do.

Advanced Auditability

GoAnywhere not only moves and shares data securely, it also provides full auditability of transfers.

Logging full audit trails of all user events and file activity, it can also generate reports of file transfer activity, user statistics, and completed jobs – all from within its central management console.

Modular, Multi-Platform Flexibility

Organisations managing multiple operating systems appreciate how GoAnywhere flexibly supports any protocol, any platform, and any deployment, including Microsoft Azure, AWS, Linux, and more.

Further, GoAnywhere’s capabilities can be significantly extended through the availability of a broad array of licensable modules, satisfying a wide variety of specialised file transfer needs.

And More…

Beyond the advantages above, former MOVEit users are often delighted to discover GoAnywhere’s advanced capabilities in:

  • High availability and clustering, providing true active-active support and load balancing to distribute workloads across multiple systems;

  • Remote agents - lightweight applications managed through the GoAnywhere interface which enable configuring and scheduling of file transfers throughout an enterprise; and

  • Secure Forms - customised forms or files that which contain data other tasks can automatically process.
