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.
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.
