Single Sign-On Adds Simplicity and Integration to GoAnywhere Services 3.5

The release of GoAnywhere Services version 3.5 introduces SSO (Single Sign-On) support to our secure FTP software.  Those familiar with the technology understand the significance of this enhancement in improving security and simplicity in our HTTPS Web Client.

Single Sign-On GoAnywhere Services Today's workplace requires a growing number of usernames and passwords to access the company's network portal, webmail, benefits system, cloud-based applications, and much more.  This can lead to "weak" passwords or the overuse of a single password which, if stolen, can create vulnerability across multiple accounts.

SAML (Security Assertion Mark-Up Language) is an XML based open standard for authorization and authentication between an Identity Provider and a Service Provider.

Implementing SSO affords your organization a number of opportunities.  The addition of SAML v2.0 support, using the OpenSAML API, allows GoAnywhere Services to improve productivity, increase adoption, centralize user access control and add a uniform security layer.

In addition, SSO support now allows integration of GoAnywhere Services with both internal applications and compatible external applications.  For example, you can now regain control of documents storage in Salesforce.com while providing a simple and seamless experience for users.

Additional enhancements include two new languages, custom disclaimers for all languages and new Virtual Folder commands.

Expanded Language Support

Version 3.5 adds support for two new languages: Portuguese and Bahasa.  Linoma Software continues to evaluate requests for additional languages as part of our commitment to building a product that serves an international marketplace. This release also improves language support by accommodating custom disclaimers for each language.

Virtual Folder Commands

GACMD (GoAnywhere Command) received an update that improves the ability to create, update, and delete virtual files and folders across a range of web user and group profiles in GoAnywhere Services.  GACMD provides a way to programmatically send commands to GoAnywhere Services and our file automation solution; GoAnywhere Director.

A result of user feedback, this enhancement further improves the efficiency of GoAnywhere Services.      


New Android Mobile App:GoAnywhere File Transfer at the Tap of a Finger

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:

From this screen, an employee could send or retrieve files by accessing the GoAnywhere Services ad-hoc web client.

GoAnywhere App secure mail

GoAnywhere Services customers can also send files right from their phones or tablets using the Secure Mail feature.

GoAnywhere secure mail module

As with the standard GoAnywhere Services Secure Mail module, users can choose from a variety of security settings before they send the secure email.
