Linoma Software Team is Hitting the Road

Monday, February 18, 2013 Posted by

February kicks off a busy trade show season for Linoma Software, and we’re looking forward to meeting lots of new people.

We’re also hoping to connect with current customers to see if we can get your thoughts about Linoma Software products.  We’ll be shooting customer videos at several shows and we’re hoping to include customers from a wide variety of industries.  Please contact us if you will be attending any of these shows.

Our first stop is at the RSA Conference in San Francisco from Feb. 25-28, where we’ll be networking with security professionals from around the world.  We’ll be exhibiting at Booth #242 from Monday through Thursday.

Then, we have a few weeks until we head to Atlanta for the RPG & DB2 Summit on March 19 where we’ll also be exhibiting.  It’s a great time to talk to developers in the trenches to see what’s changing and find out how we can better serve their needs.

Linoma Software trade showTwo weeks later we go south again, this time to Austin, Texas for the COMMON User’s Group Annual Meeting and Exposition, April 7-10.  Not only are we looking forward to catching up with industry colleagues and making new connections, we’re also excited to be in such a fun and vibrant city.  We’ll be set up in Booth #500 and hope to see a lot of familiar faces there.

Orlando, Florida our next stop on our spring trade show tour, where we’ll again be rubbing elbows with the data security experts at InfoSec World from April 15 to April 17.  We’ll have our display set up in Booth #109 to showcase how GoAnywhere helps simplify, automate and secure data transfers.

We’re also sending one of our team to London at the end of April to support our UK distributors at InfoSecurity Europe.  Brian will be meeting with several of our partners in England, France and elsewhere to see how we can support their sales and marketing efforts.

The last big tradeshow of the spring is FOSE, a conference designed exclusively for government technology professionals. Held in conjunction with the Government Security Expo,  FOSE takes place May 14-16 in Washington D.C., and we’ll be exhibiting in Booth #640.

If you’re planning to attend any of these shows, please let us know, or stop by our booth.  You can register to win prizes, pick up some cool giveaways, and maybe spend a few minutes on video telling us what you like about working with Linoma.  We really hope to see you!

linoma software, customer support, video

 For years we’ve received emails, phone calls, and comments at trade shows about how much our customers appreciate our support team, and we’re always so glad to hear that.  Our dual missions at Linoma Software is to develop (and enhance) the best possible products and to provide exceptional support for those products.

Our core support team is the first to arrive* and the last to leave each day, and between scheduled trainings, emails, online chats and phone calls, they patiently work through any questions a customer may have, and happily pass along suggestions for enhancements to our development team.

We invite you to watch this video, and if you’ve had a good experience with someone from our support team, please let us know.  You can leave a comment below,  email us, call us, or write a quick note on LinkedIn.  We could even make you a video star!

We love patting our support folks on the back for a job well done, and thank you for your rave reviews.

**Ok, the developers are here early and stay late, too!  Sometimes really late!

Simplify Field Encryption on IBM i

Monday, November 5, 2012 Posted by

Now that corporate applications are easier to access via remote and mobile channels, it’s even more important to determine which sensitive data is accessible and where possible breaches may occur. Unfortunately, legions of hackers with Wi-Fi and mobile hacking tools make it imperative that organizations prepare for and defend against potential attacks with even more pervasive security procedures.

One step in creating a stronger defense is to employ field or column-level encryption to protect sensitive data at rest.

Implementing a custom field encryption project on IBM i used to be a notoriously long and painful process.  Programming code changes for field level encryption required a steep learning curve, costly programming resources, and even more time in testing, validating and updating the changed application source code. Most companies simply could not justify the additional strain on their budgets for this level of project development requirements.

In response to this challenge, IBM released its OS version 7.1 with DB2 field procedure (FieldProcs) in April of 2010 that greatly simplified the field encryption process.  With the new FieldProcs technology, encryption projects can be streamlined because the field procedures are invoked at the database level, making it transparent to the applications. The FieldProcs can be coded to automatically encrypt the field on Inserts and Updates, and subsequently decrypt the field only for authorized users on Read operations.  Subsequently, FieldProcs have become very important to those businesses that have legacy applications and limited budgets.

FieldProcs are a great step for improving the viability of field level encryption projects. But even with this, many companies don’t have the resources to integrate and manage the FieldProcs which is why third-party software solutions, like Linoma Software’s Crypto Complete, are valuable.  Crypto Complete will generate and manage the FieldProcs on the fields within the files.

Crypto Complete also includes the key management, audit logs and access controls needed for PCI DSS and data privacy compliance. The value of using Crypto Complete for field encryption cannot be understated as it can greatly minimize the learning curve and reduce the implementation resource requirements from weeks to hours.
