The Challenge:

GoAnywhere MFT is a complicated file transfer tool susceptible to ransomware attacks.

GoAnywhere is a self-hosted managed file transfer provider used to automate, secure, and streamline large file transfers for enterprises. However, due to the self-hosted nature of its technology, GoAnywhere is susceptible to ransomware attacks.

In early 2023, a hacker group successfully exploited a zero-day vulnerability in the GoAnywhere solution to steal sensitive data from more than 130 organizations.

A data breach of this magnitude can result in massive financial losses, operational disruptions, damage to brand reputation, intellectual property theft, and a loss of trust from customers. In addition, there is a significant investment of time and resources required to implement and maintain GoAnywhere, as well as onboard new users.

Given the lack of trust in GoAnywhere at the moment and its inability to get up and running quickly, you need to find a secure file transfer alternative that can easily adapt to your business and protect against external threats.

The Solution:

Put your trust in MASV — the safe and simple GoAnywhere alternative for large files.

Although security breaches cannot be completely avoided, using a cloud-hosted file transfer service like MASV can make it easier to fix vulnerabilities.

  • Unlike GoAnywhere, MASV does not require self-hosting. We manage our own infrastructure and can quickly patch vulnerabilities with minimal disruption.
  • AWS is our main cloud service provider, which is much more difficult to hack or exploit. AWS hosts a lot of sensitive data and invest heavily in security to protect its customers.
  • We constantly validate our infrastructure against industry leading audits. As a result, MASV offers ISO 27001, SOC 2, TPN, GDPR, and PIPEDA compliance to all customers.
