Linoma Software’s GoAnywhere MFT Now Drummond Certified™ for AS2

Posted by on Monday, 30 November, 2015

Linoma Software™ is recognized among 13 global organizations to be Drummond Certified™ in the AS2-3Q15 automated interoperability test event.  The AS2 automation features in Linoma’s managed file transfer solution, GoAnywhere MFT™, were reviewed and tested against the world’s highest standards, as set by the Drummond Group, LLC.  Drummond Certified™ products are compliant and interoperable to make sure they truly interface with the systems of customers and partners.

Drummond Certified™ AS2-3Q15AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) is one of the most popular methods for transporting data securely and reliably over the Internet.  With it, businesses can easily exchange data (like EDI, XML, documents, PDFs, and text files) with trading partners.

“Although GoAnywhere has supported AS2 for quite some time, our customers were telling us that becoming Drummond Certified™ would help them in meeting trading partner requirements.” commented Bob Luebbe, Chief Architect at Linoma Software. “To be Drummond Certified™ means being part of an elite group of software solutions, and one of the few that can also offer on-premise file collaboration and managed file transfer capabilities too.”

In addition to becoming certified an AS2-3Q15 product, further testing of GoAnywhere MFT confirmed its compatibility with RFC 4130 and verified compliance with optional profiles for:

  • FN (Filename Preservation)
  • MA (Multiple Attachments)
  • FN-MA (Filename Preservation with Multiple Attachments)
  • CTE (Chunked Transfer Encoding)
  • SHA2 hash algorithms supporting SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512

GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer 5.0 Released with Unified Interface and Advanced Reporting

Posted by on Monday, 20 July, 2015

Linoma Software unveils GoAnywhere MFT™ (Managed File Transfer), version 5.0 of its GoAnywhere secure file transfer software. The upgrade combines the workflow automation capabilities of Linoma’s popular GoAnywhere Director solution with secure file transfer protocol (FTP) features from GoAnywhere Services into a single product. In addition, the merged product adds numerous significant enhancements.

GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer 5.0 Unified Interface DashboardGoAnywhere MFT 5.0 introduces a brand new and customizable browser-based dashboard with more than 20 gadgets providing statistics, graphs, and details of file transfer activity and critical system information. Each administrator has their own personal dashboard, and can arrange informative gadgets to quickly monitor the activity most important to them.

The upgrade delivers advanced Reporting features that include various PDF reports that cover system information and file-transfer activity with details and graphs.  A Security Settings Audit report will analyze a GoAnywhere MFT server’s security settings to determine compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) requirements. The report also suggests actions needed to remedy the settings that are non-compliant.

GoAnywhere continues to provide individual audit logs for job activity, triggers, and file transfers (SFTP and FTP/s, HTTP/s, AS2). The product’s new version improves logging by sending the individual log events to a global index for faster, system-wide search results.  The new Global Search can be used to quickly find events for a particular file name, a specific user name or a wide variety of ‘Google’ like search criteria.

Licensing for GoAnywhere MFT has been revamped allowing Linoma to offer a completely free FTP server, including functions to automate FTP transfers. Every edition of GoAnywhere MFT also includes 10 free user accounts for GoDrive, the on-premise enterprise file synchronization and sharing solution.

GoAnywhere MFT now features the ability to use Internet Content Adaptation Protocol (ICAP) servers as Resources and Tasks to integrate antivirus and DLP (data loss prevention) solutions in your workflows. Customers can scan files for sensitive data and viruses to stop harmful file transfers before they are sent.

Existing customers of GoAnywhere will need to register on the GoAnywhere Customer Portal at to request a new license before installing the upgrade.

GoAnywhere Gets Best Overall Value Scores for Server-to-Server and Ad Hoc Enterprise in Info-Tech Research Group’s Study of Managed File Transfer Solutions

Posted by on Tuesday, 14 July, 2015

Info-Tech Research Group, an IT research and analysis company, has released a report naming Linoma Software’s GoAnywhere managed file transfer (MFT) solution as having the highest Value Score of the MFT vendor group in Server-to-Server and Ad Hoc Enterprise use cases.

Info-Tech Research Group defines a Value Score as an index of “each vendor’s product offering and business strength relative to its price point. Vendors that score high offer more bang-for-the-buck (e.g., features, usability, stability) than the average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower.”

Info-Tech Research Group released the findings in its report entitled, “Select and Implement a Managed File Transfer Solution,” which lays out numerous criteria for designating MFT products and evaluating products in that market niche.

In particular, the report makes the point that “FTP is no longer a viable option” for enterprises with high-volume data transfer needs because of such challenges as difficult installation processes, no file delivery guarantee, limited storage-management options, user-training problems, increased risk, limited visibility, and lack of encryption.

Info-Tech Research Group evaluated different MFT software solutions for such attributes as speed, volume (capacity), security/encryption, and compliance with industry standards and governmental mandates. GoAnywhere received the only 100 out of 100 possible points awarded for Server-to-Server and Ad Hoc Enterprise in Info-Tech Research Group’s Managed File Transfer Vendor Landscape.

Info-Tech Research Group’s Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group’s Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category.

According to the report, “With enterprise-level controls and rigorous audit logs, GoAnywhere ensures strict security policies and compliance regulations are met, regardless of industry. The product is FIPS 140-2 certified and is compliant with PCI DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, SOX, and GLBA. Its ability to connect and interface with multiple technologies provides a versatile solution in disparate environments. GoAnywhere’s reverse proxy restricts which ports are open on your internal network. This is useful for all high security and regulatory environments.”

GoAnywhere Solves Banking File Transfer Problems

Posted by on Tuesday, 23 June, 2015

Linoma Software announces availability of a case study describing how its customer, FPS GOLD, solved some years-long problems by using the GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer solution.

FPS GOLD logoFPS GOLD is a services company for community banks that was plagued by dropped files and cumbersome procedures for setting up new clients. Among other problems, their old system could not handle the thousands of daily file transfers. It required special scripts and staggered processing to function, and the old system’s log made it difficult to detect errors.

Since adopting GoAnywhere, FPS GOLD has solved their file transfer problems. GoAnywhere is capable of handling the volume of transfers FPS GOLD needs. Its clustered architecture is so reliable that FPS GOLD hasn’t lost a single file since installing it. Set-up time for new customers has been cut to 15 minutes, and being able to view GoAnywhere’s job log has proven to be a “valuable time-saving feature,” in the words of the customer. In addition, FPS GOLD estimates a savings of $12,000 per year in licensing fees over its old solution.

GoAnywhere is a managed file transfer solution that streamlines and manages data movement from a centralized location. It lets enterprises connect to almost any internal or external system and securely exchange data. GoAnywhere also allows trading partners and employees to connect to your systems securely and easily via common server protocols (e.g., FTP, FTPS, SFTP, HTTPS) and offers a browser interface. GoAnywhere Gateway lets trading partners connect without having to open incoming ports into a private network or having to store sensitive information in a DMZ or perimeter network.
