GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer Software Adds FIPS 140-2 Validation Encryption Module

Share Article

Organizations who exchange data with all levels of government can now secure their data transmissions using the FIPS 140-2 validated encryption module recently added to the GoAnywhere managed file transfer solution from Linoma Software.

FIPS 140-2 Validation Encryption Module
“When GoAnywhere customers enable the FIPS 140-2 Compliance Mode,” Luebbe explained, “only FIPS 140-2 compliant ciphers (e.g. AES, Triple DES) will be permitted for encryption processes."

Applying FIPS 140-2 validated encryption for data transfers is a critical compliance requirement for U.S. federal government and state agencies, as well as for those companies that exchange sensitive data such as financial information, health care records, etc. with all levels of government.

Linoma Software chose to partner with RSA® Corporation, a trusted industry leader for security and encryption solutions, to incorporate FIPS 140-2 validated encryption into its GoAnywhere™ managed file transfer solution. Through this partnership, Linoma was able to work closely with RSA to embed their FIPS 140-2 validated security module within its GoAnywhere Director™ and GoAnywhere Services™ products.

RSA’s popular FIPS 140-2 security module has a proven track record and is widely used by the government and major corporations. The RSA security module was certified for FIPS 140-2 by an independent lab that has oversight by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Turning on the new FIPS 140-2 mode within GoAnywhere is simple.

“When GoAnywhere customers enable the FIPS 140-2 Compliance Mode,” Luebbe explained, “only FIPS 140-2 compliant ciphers (e.g. AES, Triple DES) will be permitted for encryption processes. The RSA security module will be utilized for any SSH and SSL communications in GoAnywhere including SFTP, SCP, FTPS and HTTPS protocols.”

Sales Director Brian Pick says the addition of the RSA FIPS 140-2 compliant ciphers will be a popular feature for those needing a secure managed file transfer solution.

“We’re hearing from more agencies and corporations that work with sensitive government-related data,” Pick said. “By incorporating this RSA security module in our latest release, we will be able to serve an even larger group of customers.”

GoAnywhere Director and GoAnywhere Services install on most platforms including Windows, Linux, IBM i (iSeries), AIX, UNIX, HP-UX, Solaris and Mac OS X. Fully functional trials of the products are available at http://www.GoAnywhereMFT.com. Pricing starts at $3,995.
