It is very common for staff to share sensitive files via email, risking your organisations security and compliance. Or they need to share files which are too big to attach, so they resort to consumer-grade applications like Dropbox or WeTransfer.
GoAnywhere MFT provides a Secure Mail module, which addresses these challenges. It is a great way for businesses of any size to control and manage sensitive and valuable data exchanges via email to remote or third parties.
In a typical email setup, the servers do not encrypt the email attachment. The GoAnywhere Secure Mail solution allows email attachments to be encrypted and securely transferred. This feature can be accessed either via the Microsoft Outlook plugin or the GoAnywhere HTTPS web interface.
Microsoft Outlook plugin
When sending emails using the Outlook plugin, the attached file is not attached to the email itself. It is sent encrypted to the GoAnywhere MFT server and encrypted at rest on the storage. An encoded URL, which can also be password protected, is then embedded into the email body. The recipient can link directly to the stored file or files hosted on and controlled by the GoAnywhere MFT server.
GoAnywhere HTTPS client interface
The GoAnywhere HTTPS client interface provides an alternative method to send secure email attachments. The web portal provides a familiar and intuitive interface for users to control and manage this process.
The administration interface allows IT or delegated administrators to manage aspects of the Outlook plugin and secure mail features, giving them control over the size of files attached and enforced settings including: Security controls & protection levels for URL protection, password and certificate delivery.
Address rules allow you to lock down the email domains you can send to or receive from. This level of control is a great solution for business with known trading partners who need that additional level of security.
The Reporting feature provides visibility of activities, while Auditing and Package Manager allow administrators to control the package expiration and maximum downloads for file or files.
