This is a feature-packed solution that is highly recommended

What is our primary use case?

The primary use for GoAnywhere MFT (Managed File Transfer) is to provide control for file transfers.

Pros and Cons

  • "This is a very good product for managing file transfers."
  • "The product could be improved by being modular. There are more features in the core product than any client needs."

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this product for other users who wants to start using it, and we do recommend it all the time. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate this product as an eight-out-of-ten. To improve it in order to rate it higher, it would have to be cheaper. To accomplish that HelpSystems could consider reorganizing the product in a more modular way. In that way, we could just make the solution fit to particular needs and pay for what is used. For most situations, we just need a few small modules instead of the entire solution in one big chunk.

Nice dashboard with helpful alerting, but support for sending files needs to be implemented

What is our primary use case?

The MFT product is for transferring files with external partners, and on-premises as well. We use it in both of these use cases. We're doing file transfer internally on our on-premises network, between sites or servers. Then, we also do that via a secure connection with an external partner or on a separate network. It is basically the same as file transfer over an FTP.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has a nice dashboard for loading up the file transfers, so it's easy to follow the success or failure rates of the operations."
  • "Scalability is something that needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

This product is not feature-rich but it is a solid file-transfer solution. I would say that the features they have now are very good, although the product is not complete because you cannot send files. I would recommend it but at the same time, I think that everybody needs to test it and see if it meets their needs. The supported features are very good but obviously, if there is a protocol or something else that you need that isn't supported then it will not be suitable. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Too many features offered; usability, performance, and reliability, are not good

What is our primary use case?

I work as a consultant to one of our clients who use SFG.

Pros and Cons

  • "Very high functionality with the ability to plug in your own code."
  • "Too many features; UI is not good."

What other advice do I have?

There are solutions like GoAnywhere or Axway where the usability and flexibility is so easy. SFG has a legacy we have to deal with. I know they have pretty big clients and are one of the prime vendors. I'm not talking about the latest version of SFG, I haven't had a chance to look at it. If what they promise is correct, it might be a big improvement. I would rate this product a two out of 10.
