GoAnywhere Gateway

Reverse and Forward Proxy Software

Implement an extra layer of cybersecurity when exchanging files with trading partners.

Keep Inbound Ports Closed

GoAnywhere Gateway uses a reverse proxy to keep inbound ports into your private or internal network closed. Implementing this feature in your organization will help you comply with regulations and privacy laws like PCI DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, SOX, ISO 27000, and GLBA.

Connect to External Systems

When acting as a forward proxy, GoAnywhere will connect to external systems on behalf of user and applications working in your private or internal network. Outbound requests are routed through a centralized point, allowing you to easily manage your data exchange from your firewall.

Distribute Workloads to Multiple Systems

GoAnywhere Gateway can serve as a load balancer, which you can use to distribute workloads across multiple systems. If a critical system fails, your trading partner connections and file transfers will reroute to your remaining systems, providing high availability for mission-critical environments.


DMZ Secure Gateways: Secret Weapons for Data Security

Find out how adding a DMZ secure gateway to your file transfer processes can provide a critical layer of security that boosts compliance readiness


How GoAnywhere Gateway Works


The ins-and-outs of GoAnywhere Gateway

GoAnywhere Gateway serves as a reverse and forward proxy. Most users install it in the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), with GoAnywhere’s secure file transfer solution, GoAnywhere MFT, implemented in the private network.

Upon starting GoAnywhere Gateway, GoAnywhere MFT creates an outbound connection. This is used as a "control channel" for passing commands and messages to and from GoAnywhere Gateway. The control channel initially provides proxy details (e.g. IP and port mappings) to GoAnywhere Gateway, at which point the proxy software starts up "listeners" on the designated IPs and ports for incoming traffic.

Achieve PCI DSS Compliance


Does your organization need to maintain compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)? GoAnywhere Gateway helps IT teams protect cardholder data by keeping sensitive files and credentials out of the DMZ while ensuring that all inbound ports are closed.

GoAnywhere Gateway is specifically helpful for organizations who need to meet requirements for PCI DSS Section 1.3.
