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.

Managed File Transfer Mobile App Targets Cloud Storage

Posted by on Friday, 14 March, 2014

The introduction of smart phones and tablets quickly spawned an industry of mobile apps and cloud storage.  With the rise of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in the workplace, the demand for simple and efficient file sharing skyrocketed.  IT departments lacked the tools to satisfy internal customer demands so, in the interest of maintaining productivity, employees found workarounds through unsecured apps and public storage.

Best of Both Worlds

Today, Managed File Transfer (MFT) software is bringing document management full circle.  In addition to flexibility, automation and improved compliance reporting, MFT has dramatically simplified how trading partners and end users interact with documents.  Mobile apps and web-based clients are bridging the gap recently filled by cloud storage providers.

The real advantage lies in returning control to the network administrator.  Data remains on corporate servers so no information is uploaded to the cloud.  Authorized users are restricted to accessing designated folders and administrators control permission settings, such as read-only or upload rights.  Secure Mail functionality allows users to send email messages with a unique link to files that recipients can download securely through a HTTPS connection.

Reducing Risk of Data Loss

Reliance on policy enforcement to control data security was always an uneasy stop-gap solution.  Now, IT personnel can transition resources to focus on strategic initiatives rather than police information flow.

The GoAnywhere File Transfer app is available for download now on iTunes and the Google Play store. It is free to customers licensed for the GoAnywhere Services HTTP/s module.
