HelpSystems (now Fortra) Launches Simple Way to Integrate File Transfers with Everyday Cloud Applications

Posted on June 15, 2018 | Infrastructure and Data Protection

Minneapolis, MN, June 15, 2018—Fortra today released Cloud Connectors, a new feature of its managed file transfer solution that enables IT professionals to integrate with popular third-party services like Salesforce, SharePoint, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Box, and Dropbox.

With this new release, GoAnywhere MFT users now have access to built-in connections that automate the movement of data between their on-premises and cloud applications. “Cloud migration is a growing initiative in many companies, and many teams need an easy way to connect to the applications they use every day,” said Bob Luebbe, General Manager of GoAnywhere at Fortra. “For example, a user may need to retrieve customer information from Salesforce CRM. Instead of having to write complex integration software on their own, an organization can use our Salesforce Cloud Connector to set up an automated process to integrate with Salesforce data with just a couple minutes of effort.”

Fortra also launched a new GoAnywhere marketplace that organizations can use to browse for, download, and maintain these integrations. “Our Cloud Connector Marketplace gives GoAnywhere users access to many of the industry’s most popular integrations,” said Steve Luebbe, GoAnywhere Director of Engineering at Fortra. “Installation is fast and painless, allowing organizations to connect to the third-party applications they need when they need to.”

IT professionals who want to create their own unique file transfer integrations can do so with GoAnywhere’s drag-and-drop designer interface.  GoAnywhere can be deployed to most operating systems including Windows, Linux, AIX, and IBM i, as well as run in virtualized environments such as VMware, Amazon AWS, and Azure.
