On-premise File Sharing and Collaboration Goes Mobile with New GoAnywhere Apps from Linoma Software

Posted by on Monday, 2 November, 2015

GoDrive secure on-premise enterprise file sync and sharingLinoma Software announces the release of mobile apps for GoDrive by GoAnywhere™, its secure on-premise document storage solution that offers users Enterprise File Sync and Sharing (EFSS) capabilities. Authorized users can now synchronize and share documents, photos, videos, and files across Windows and Mac devices, iPhones, iPads, and Android phones and tablets.

GoDrive users have access to files directly from those devices, as well as optionally download files for offline access. The mobile app automatically updates files and folders to the most current version each time a registered mobile device connects to the server.

Designed as an alternative to cloud-based file-sharing services, GoDrive features localized control with on-site file storage to meet compliance requirements and detailed audit trails for ease of management. Files synchronized to GoDrive devices are secured end-to-end using AES 256-bit encryption and dual-factor PIN authorization during device registration ensures complete security for sensitive data. GoDrive provides advanced collaboration features such as file and folder sharing, file-revision tracking, and commenting.

GoDrive Mobile Devices

Included with each installation of GoAnywhere MFT, Linoma’s secure file-transfer solution, are ten free GoDrive user accounts. The browser-based interface helps administrators manage users, security settings, and shared folders. Administrators can also set disk quotas at the system and user level, view disk usage and file histories, and deactivate and eliminate GoDrive folders from lost or stolen end-user devices.

Clustering is also available, providing scalability to support an unlimited number of GoDrive users and files. For active-active networks in which each node has access to replicated databases and server applications, clustering maximizes availability for mission-critical file sharing.

5 Signs Your Organization is Ready for MFT

Posted by on Monday, 31 August, 2015

Managed File Transfer Levels the Playing Field for SMB

Low-cost file transfer tools allow mid-market businesses to make simple data exchanges both internally and externally.  As your company grows, however, trading partners demand enterprise-level systems to improve reliability and data security.

cityscape - mft readyManaged File Transfer (MFT) emerged to reduce the cost and programming skills required for you to meet customer requirements and stay competitive in the marketplace. According to an Info-Tech Research Group report on selecting and implementing an MFT solution, there are five signs that indicate your organization could benefit from this technology.

  1. A need for transparency and traceability in file exchange activities
  2. New business relationships mandate adherence to compliance laws and privacy regulations
  3. Traditional methods of sending data, such as FTP, aren’t secure
  4. Processes need to be more agile and adapt to changing network conditions
  5. The inability to comply with government reporting requirements

MFT provides comprehensive audit trails and monitoring to document all file transfer activity. Reports generated from this data show every interaction with the files on your server in great detail and allow you to better serve customers by responding quickly when problems do arise.

When security and reporting tools are needed to meet strict regulatory compliance standards of even highly-regulated industries, MFT delivers.  These include the data protection and integrity requirements found in PCI DSS, GLBA, SOX, Dodd-Frank and state privacy laws.

In light of recent high profile data breaches, many organizations have chosen to reduce their risk by seeking alternatives to unsecure FTP.  MFT gives you the flexibility to connect with trading partners using secure protocols and popular encryption methods like SFTP, FTPS, HTTPS, AS2, Open PGP and ZIP with AES.

In addition, automation and simplified workflows offered in many MFT solutions streamline the process of adding and onboarding trading partners. Companies can reduce or eliminate time spent on manual file exchanges and interrupted file transfers, thus reducing administrative costs and assuring the timely delivery of mission-critical data.

Do Your Homework When Choosing a Managed File Transfer Solution

Posted by on Thursday, 13 August, 2015

Linoma Software emerged as an early pioneer in MFT (managed file transfer).  Starting in 2002 with a solution for automating and managing file transfers, capabilities soon expanded to support encryption standards to help organizations protect sensitive and confidential data.

Companies of all sizes quickly recognized how MFT could help them establish centralized control over file access, streamline file transfer processes, and simplify compliance through detailed audit logs and reporting.  This has led to a surge in providers, each with their own flavor of MFT.

This increasingly crowded marketplace has made it difficult for IT security professionals to research and recommend the best MFT solution to meet their organization’s particular needs.  That’s why Linoma Software’s chief architect Bob Luebbe believes so highly in the value of quality research like the recent report on the vendor landscape for MFT by Info-Tech Research Group.

The Info-Tech report entitled “Select and Implement a Managed File Transfer Solution” gives you the tools to fully explore your organization’s requirements for MFT.

“Managed file transfer software is frequently purchased to meet the requirements of one initiative,” states Luebbe, “but companies quickly discover the advantages of implementing MFT across all areas of file management.”  Proper planning allows you to ‘secure file transfers today and avoid worrying about tomorrow’.

Assembling a thorough assessment of system-to-system and ad-hoc file transfers across every department allows you to match current and future demands to MFT providers identified as leaders in those particular areas.

Choosing an MFT solution is an investment of both money and time.  “If you’re not 100% confident in the software’s ability to communicate with your existing systems and perform to your expectations, that should be reason for concern,” Luebbe cautions.

“Install fully functional trial software on your own system, request a personalized demo where you can see the software in action and have the ability to ask specific questions, and always ask for references from customers using the software in a similar fashion.”

Luebbe concludes, “Linoma Software believes in MFT’s ability to help an organization achieve regulatory compliance, increase security and streamline processes.  It’s important to us that everyone has a positive experience with this transformative technology.”
