Why Bother Upgrading Beyond Standard FTP?

Posted by on Thursday, 26 September, 2013

Right out of the box, most operating systems come with a built-in File Transfer Protocol (FTP) tool that makes it possible to transfer large files between people, computers and servers.  It accomplishes the key goal, which is to deliver the file from one place to another.  However, too many organizations’ philosophy has been that as long as the files were getting where they needed to go, standard FTP was good enough. That was especially true when they were transferring files internally.

The truth is that FTP alone has never been good enough, because too much information (file data, user names, passwords, etc.) is vulnerable to hackers and it only takes fairly rudimentary hacking skills to steal it.  Now with increased pressure to protect sensitive data coming from regulators and consumers, it’s urgent that companies implement a more secure file transfer method.

Take a look at this short video to hear Bob Luebbe, Linoma Software’s Chief Architect, talk about the dangers of standard FTP.

 

At the end of this video, Bob mentions the value of clustering and load balancing to promote high active-active availability. Since this video was produced, we’ve also added these features to both GoAnywhere Services and GoAnywhere Director.

In fact, Bob just delivered a free webinar on the latest updates to GoAnywhere, and you can view a recorded version here.

Video: How to Encrypt Files with OpenPGP Studio

Posted by on Wednesday, 7 August, 2013

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.

Download OpenPGP StudioLinoma 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.
