SFT Rights Management from Fortra

SFT Rights Management


The Problem

Sensitive data must get shared in the regular rhythms of business. And that data – whether it’s intellectual property (IP), personally identifiable information (PII), financial information, or M&A documents – must be protected at all costs.

For many organizations, security methods like PGP encryption are not enough because once files are downloaded and unencrypted, those files can still be shared with unauthorized recipients. They need a way to apply Zero Trust tenants to their file transfers.

Another common limitation is not being able to send large files securely and efficiently with external parties – a critical situation when trying to share proprietary manufacturing files, media, or sensitive video footage.

In addition, with growing regulatory, state, and government policies around file protection, companies also have to make sure files are protected in line with compliance requirements.

The Solution 

Securing documents in transfer and at rest with secure file transfer solutions is an important step to protecting the data vital to your organization, trading partners, and customers. In a Zero Trust Security framework, no person or system attempting to access data is automatically trusted. 

While Fortra Secure Managed File Transfer (MFT) solutions automatically move and encrypt files, adding Vera Digital Rights Management (DRM) enables a Zero Trust approach to data protection. Vera works with both GoAnywhere MFT and Globalscape EFT to help organizations authenticate, verify, and limit access to data, while also encrypting data end-to-end. Wherever files travel, you have ultimate control and protection over them - for totally secure collaboration.

The SFT Rights Management Bundle allows you to:

  • Share and protect files
  • Automatically apply file protection to every file landing within MFT they go
  • Determine who can access files by setting pre-defined rights
  • Expire & revoke Vera-protected files

How It Works

Infographic describing how Fortra's Vera and Fortra's SFT work together to protect data
  • Organization shares sensitive data – medical information, bank or credit cards, legal documents, manufacturing designs, etc.
  • GoAnywhere MFT securely transfers the file, either via web browsers, PGP encrypted email links, or automated workflows from one location to another.
  • Vera adds encryption that goes with the file wherever it goes (even after it’s downloaded), as well as the ability to track, monitor, and revoke access to files at any time
  • Files are protected, encrypted and controlled wherever they go

Common Use Cases

  • Send a large file securely via email with encryption – so no matter who receives it, encryption stays with the file even after download and access can be revoked at any time.
  • Share files to shared folders – and wrap them in Vera protection so only authorized users can open and download the file, depending on policies, and once files are downloaded you still have control.
  • Upload files to web forms – and enable GoAnywhere to apply Vera DRM to each attachment, sending a Vera-protected download link to recipients and only allowing authorized individuals to access.

GoAnywhere Customer Requirements

Vera enhances GoAnywhere MFT’s file encryption for documents supported by the Vera plugin. GoAnywhere customers must own Advanced Workflows and Secure Forms.
