Linoma Software [now HelpSystems], 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 [now HelpSystems]. "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.
