Have you ever been asked to email a file that includes personal information like your prescription records, or your banking account information, or even your social security number? Many people share that kind of information over the internet and simply hope that it doesn’t get hacked.
Linoma Software, developer of the enterprise solution GoAnywhere™ Managed File Transfer Suite, has made it much easier to keep this kind of confidential data protected with its recently released desktop encryption tool called GoAnywhere OpenPGP Studio™.
This free PC tool is designed for people who occasionally need to share or store sensitive data. OpenPGP Studio lets users encrypt, decrypt, sign and verify files from their PCs or workstations. An integrated key manager allows anyone to quickly create, import, export and manage OpenPGP keys needed to encrypt and decrypt files. Best of all, it’s intuitive so even those who claim to be “non-technical” can confidently use OpenPGP Studio.
Here’s a video, also available on YouTube, that shows just how easy OpenPGP Studio is to use.
You can download OpenPGP Studio from the GoAnywhere website, and then let us know what you think! If you need a more robust solution that includes automation, check out the GoAnywhere suite of products.
If an auditor showed up in your office tomorrow and wanted to examine your file transfer security policies and procedures, how confident are you that your organization would earn high marks?
Take this short quiz and find out.
- Are you still hosting an outdated SFTP or FTP server in the public area of your network (or DMZ)?
- Do trading partners have access to inbound ports within your internal network to drop off or retrieve files?
- Are your administrative security controls granular enough to manage user access to specific files, folders and areas of the network?
- Can you monitor all file transfer activity and maintain detailed audit logs?
- Do employees have easy access to an ad hoc file transfer tool that lets them transfer files of any size, all while generating audit trails?
To find out how auditors expect you answer these questions, don’t miss our next webinar:
Linoma Software’s Chief Architect Bob Luebbe will show you how the GoAnywhere Services secure FTP server can work with GoAnywhere Gateway to keep sensitive data and credentials safely in your internal network and out of the DMZ. He’ll also demonstrate how the two work together to allow you to exchange files with trading partners without opening inbound ports.

It used to be that when we left work for the day, we really left work. With today’s mobile culture, however, employees are staying on top of projects and communicating with customers no matter where they are.
Linoma Software found a way to make that a little easier by developing its new GoAnywhere File Transfer mobile application for the Android platform.
Now, GoAnywhere Services customers can securely exchange files with internal servers or trading partners using their mobile phone or tablet. Trading partners can also download the app and access the customer’s web portal to exchange files securely and conveniently.
The GoAnywhere File Transfer mobile app works much like GoAnywhere Services’ ad hoc web client, and can also send files through Services’ Secure Mail feature. It is free to download from the Google Play store.
Here are some screenshots of the Android app at work:

If you’re not familiar with GoAnywhere Services, our secure FTP server solution that’s part of the GoAnywhere managed file transfer suite of products, we’d be happy to schedule a demo with one of our product specialists.
System Administrator Amy Hoerle has spent much of her career writing custom FTP scripts, so when she first started at Think Mutual Bank, she was a little surprised to find that GoAnywhere was already handling many of their file transfer processes.
“GoAnywhere was always there and always running,” she said. “Before, if I had to write a script, there were so many things that could go wrong that I’d have to check for. Now, I can automate all of it and make it simple with GoAnywhere, things that would take me a lot of time elsewhere.”
For more about how Think Mutual Bank uses GoAnywhere to manage file transfers, handle encryption, translate data formats, and more, watch this video interview we did at the 2013 COMMON User’s Conference.

Following on the heels of the InfoSec Conference in Orlando last week, we’ve crossed the pond to co-sponsor an exhibition stand with longtime partners HANDD Business Solutions at the InfoSecurity Europe conference in London. This event brings experts from all areas of cyber, network, cloud and data security together to discuss key issues and educate IT professionals on best practices.
No matter where an organization does business, keeping private data protected, avoiding data breach, and implementing appropriate policies and procedures to meet a variety of compliance guidelines are formidable challenges.
On the top of the minds of IT professionals who stopped by our stand, #C95, was how to find a better file sharing alternative than the free cloud-based services that have become popular with employees, but that are virtually impossible to monitor and track to meet compliance guidelines.
Read HANDD’s blog post to hear more about the first day at InfoSec Europe. You might also check out this informative infographic that HANDD developed entitled “Dropbox vs Secure Managed File Transfer” to examine the challenges of cloud file storage options.
