GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer™ Offers More Secure Access with RADIUS and RSA SecurID© Technology

Posted by on Tuesday, 29 March, 2016

Organizations using RSA authentication protocols can benefit with quick and easy integration of RADIUS and RSA SecurID in GoAnywhere MFT.

Linoma Software RSA Ready Certified Partner for GoAnywhere MFT with RADIUS and SecurIDLinoma Software, an RSA® Ready certified partner, today announced the addition of RADIUS and award-winning RSA SecurID technology to GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer, allowing simple integration for organizations using RSA authentication protocols for administrator and user access. One of the world’s most widely used two-factor user authentication solutions, RSA SecurID works in conjunction with GoAnywhere MFT to securely validate authorized identities and provide non-repudiable access to servers, data and file sharing using key fobs or token apps.

The strong, multi-factor authentication found in RSA SecurID allows organizations to solve the issue of weak passwords with an enforceable and user-friendly solution to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data. With over 40 million people and 30,000 companies using RSA SecurID, it has become a market leader for securing access to applications and resources.

“By integrating RADIUS and RSA SecurID with GoAnywhere MFT, it significantly raises the bar on our security offerings and provides a way to not only simplify the user experience, but improve efficiency of identity and access management across the board,” said Bob Luebbe, President and Chief Architect at Linoma Software. “Security is paramount to our company. The extremely high level of access security that RADIUS and RSA SecurID provides our customers made it a natural fit to incorporate into GoAnywhere MFT to counteract evolving security threats.”

Award-winning GoAnywhere MFT allows for configuration of authentication methods per user using many different authentication types including LDAP, Active Directory and IBM i. System administrators can now configure a RADIUS (RSA SecurID) login method to be used by Admin Users, Web Users or as a second login step for Web Users. The supported features in GoAnywhere MFT include RSA SecurID Authentication via RADIUS protocol and IPv6 in addition to On-Demand Authentication via RADIUS protocol. Existing RSA SecurID customers can easily integrate their RSA Authentication Manager with GoAnywhere in minutes.

Accelerated File Transfer and Security Domains in Latest Release of GoAnywhere MFT

Posted by on Thursday, 24 March, 2016

Linoma Software announces two significant enhancements in Version 5.2 of the award winning GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer software.  A new file transfer acceleration protocol called GoFast™ improves delivery speed and reliability when compared to traditional FTP, and Domains allows organizations to segregate users and workflows to provide an additional layer of data security.

GoFast Accelerated File TransferThe new GoFast protocol uses multiple UDP channels to accelerate the movement of files between servers. This acceleration is especially useful for moving large files, including videos and backup sets, across the internet or wide area networks (WANs). Options are provided in GoFast to protect confidential transfers with strong AES-256 encryption, as well as compress transmissions to minimize bandwidth requirements. Since GoFast is a feature within the GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer solution, it takes full advantage of the available automation, auditing and reporting capabilities in the product.

Domains can be used to segregate GoAnywhere MFT into multiple security zones where authorized users can only work with trading partners, workflows and logs belonging to their assigned domains.  This functionality benefits organizations that need to share a single installation of GoAnywhere with multiple divisions or departments, while maintaining separation of administrative access. Each domain can be locked into certain network folders to prevent unauthorized access by other administrators.

Continuing Advancements with GoAnywhere Automation & Security

Current GoAnywhere MFT customers that upgrade to the current release also gain new functionality for workflow automation and user authentication. Highlights for some of the new features include:

  • Support for Amazon S3 Buckets and WebDAV resources that can be used as file storage for trading partners and workflows.
  • Support for popular SMS gateways and SMNP servers to make it easier to automate alerts and notifications.
  • Project revision history tracking that allows you to restore workflows to previous versions.
  • RSA RADIUS Login methods with Two-Factor-Authentication using key fobs or token apps.
  • Additional logs and change history to track administrator user activity on the system.

Free FTP Server and Client Helps Businesses Improve Security and Audit File Transfers

Posted by on Thursday, 14 January, 2016

GoAnywhere MFT’s integrated FTP Server and Client for automating and auditing file transfers is now available as a Free Edition of the enterprise-class Managed File Transfer solution.

GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer Free FTPThis free FTP software can be installed on a variety of platforms including Windows, Linux, Mac OS, UNIX and IBM i, providing flexibility to organizations of all sizes.  GoAnywhere MFT improves FTP security with features like AD authentication, granular folder permissions, password policies to comply with PCI DSS, brute force and DoS attack monitors, and IP blacklists/whitelists.

“Legacy FTP servers are lacking the security controls, user management and detailed audit logs needed to comply with regulations like PCI DSS and HIPAA” says Bob Luebbe, Chief Architect at Linoma Software.  “With the free edition, any organization can now take advantage of the comprehensive FTP features in GoAnywhere MFT.”

Using the free FTP client from GoAnywhere, organizations can add automation to their file transfers.  The ability to schedule transfers and scan for new or modified files on local or remote systems reduces manual processes and the risk of human error.  This saves time and money while improving productivity through reliable data delivery.

The GoAnywhere FTP server makes it possible to set access controls and generate detailed audit logs on all file transfer activity.  This offers a layer of regulatory and policy compliance to organizations currently using FTP to exchange files with trading partners.

GoAnywhere MFT is an on-premise solution that provides centralized control over data access. There are no upfront costs or renewal fees for this fully scalable FTP solution. GoAnywhere MFT can be easily upgraded to meet the changing needs of any business through the purchase of secure file transfer protocols, integrated Open PGP encryption, advanced workflows and in-depth reporting.

This free software installs in minutes and is available for download from the GoAnywhere website at http://www.goanywhere.com/free-ftp.
