Linoma Software, developers of the GoAnywhere suite of secure managed file transfer solutions, is now offering a new reverse proxy server product -- GoAnywhere Gateway. In addition, Linoma is announcing a major release of its GoAnywhere Services file transfer server. The combination of GoAnywhere Gateway and GoAnywhere Services provide an enterprise-strength solution for secure file sharing and data automation, while allowing customers to comply with regulations such as HIPAA, PCI DSS, SOX and GLBA.

Customers typically install GoAnywhere Gateway onto a server in their DMZ (demilitarized zone) or public network. Trading partners will connect through GoAnywhere Gateway to designated FTP, FTPS, SFTP, or HTTPS resources in GoAnywhere Services, which would be located in the private (internal) network. With GoAnywhere Gateway's reverse proxy process, no sensitive data needs to be stored in the DMZ and no incoming ports need to be opened into the private network.

GoAnywhere Gateway features include:

  • Internal servers are "masqueraded" behind reverse proxy

  • No incoming ports are opened into the private network, reducing the risk of network intrusion

  • No sensitive files are stored in the DMZ

  • User credentials, permissions, keys, and certificates are maintained in the private network

  • Services configurations are maintained in the private network

  • Supports FTP, FTPS, SFTP, HTTP, and HTTPS file transfer protocols

GoAnywhere Gateway can be installed on Windows, Linux, UNIX, AIX, and Solaris platforms.

GoAnywhere Services version 2.0 includes an enhanced interface for browser-based file transfers over HTTP or HTTPS. Using this Explorer-like interface, your trading partners can download and upload files with their mouse using drag-and-drop, multi-select, and right-click options. It also allows users to transfer multiple files concurrently with the ability to monitor the progress of large file transfers. For automated file transfers, trading partners can also connect to GoAnywhere Services through standard FTP, FTPS (FTP over SSL), and SFTP (FTP over SSH) protocols.

GoAnywhere Services also includes new administration and authentication features. Trading partner accounts can be created with user-defined templates or can be imported from other systems. These accounts can now be authenticated against Active Directory (AD), LDAP, and IBM i systems so customers do not have to maintain a separate set of passwords. Accounts can also be automatically disabled after a certain period of inactivity for security purposes.
