Linoma Software products are not affected by Heartbleed bug

Posted by on Wednesday, 9 April, 2014

Heartbleed bug graphic from heartbleed.comIf you are a Linoma Software customer using any of our products such as the GoAnywhere suite (Director, Services, Gateway, Open PGP Studio), Crypto Complete, Surveyor/400 or the RPG Toolbox, we are pleased to report that our products are NOT vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.  

The CVE-2014-0160 exploit, or Heartbleed bug, has made big headlines over the last 48 hours. The Heartbleed bug exploits vulnerabilities in the popular OpenSSL server software potentially allowing the memory of SSL/TLS encrypted systems to be compromised. The bug essentially allows access to the memory of the SSL/TLS protected systems and attackers can potentially steal and read formerly encrypted information such as usernames and passwords, credit card numbers and other sensitive data.  To learn more about the Heartbleed bug please visit Heartbleed.com.  Additional resources allow you to check and see if your website or server is affected by the Heartbleed bug:  Heartbleed Test and LastPass Heartbleed Checker.

GoAnywhere Suite (Director, Services, Gateway, Open PGP Studio)
GoAnywhere does not use native libraries for SSL/TLS and relies on the JSSE libraries of the JVM that GoAnywhere is running on. This exploit does not exist in the JSSE implementation of SSL/TLS.  While Tomcat does, however, have the ability to utilize native SSL/TLS capabilities for its HTTP/S connections with the APR Connectors, GoAnywhere does not employ this functionality.
GoAnywhere Secure File Transfer mobile apps:
For Apple devices: The GoAnywhere Apple app uses the Secure Transport implementation of SSL/TLS and is not affected by Heartbleed.
For Android devices:  The GoAnywhere Android app uses the JSSE implementation of SSL/TLS and is not affected by Heartbleed.

Surveyor/400:
Surveyor/400 does not use native libraries for SSL/TLS and relies on the JSSE libraries of the JVM that Surveyor/400 is running on. This exploit does not exist in the JSSE implementation of SSL/TLS.

Crypto Complete:
Crypto Complete does not use SSL/TLS for Field or Backup encryption and is not affected by Heartbleed.

RPG Toolbox:  Our RPG toolbox does not use any encryption and is not affected by Heartbleed. 

Five reasons we love tradeshows

Posted by on Tuesday, 10 September, 2013

We’re packing up our displays and stocking up on brochures because this fall, we’re on the road again.  Our tradeshow schedule is busier than ever, and our team is covering events all over the country.

In the era of virtual meetings, video calling and event streaming, you might wonder why we even bother to exhibit at live conferences.

Here are five reasons we love tradeshows.

1. We meet lots of new people.

It’s fun to watch people stroll by our display and see the light bulb go on when they realize that we address issues that have been driving them crazy.  It’s even better to hear their incredulous reactions when we explain how much easier we can make their jobs.  Sometimes they’ll tell us about other solutions that have disappointed them, and that’s a great opportunity to share how our software might be a better fit.

2.  We talk at length with customers.Linoma Software at COMMON

We love when customers stop by our booth.  Often we’ve only talked to them on the phone or through an online meeting, so it’s good to meet them in person.  Sometimes they have questions that we can solve on the spot, and sometimes they want to get the inside scoop about what’s next in the development cycle.  Occasionally we can even get them on video sharing their experiences with GoAnywhere or Crypto Complete.

Here’s one of our senior developers, Ron Byrd, talking with longtime GoAnywhere customer Jit Sewchan of ScotiaBank.

3. We catch up with industry colleagues.

Tradeshows give us a chance to talk with other IT professionals, software developers, industry media and sales reps who are in the trenches with us.  It’s helpful to hear others’ perspectives about industry trends, and to get caught up on the newest players and products in the space.

4. We have fun.

Yes, the days can be long, but tradeshows aren’t all work and no play.  When the exhibit hall closes, we always find something fun to do.  The team will explore local restaurants, perhaps meet up with customers or colleagues, and we’ve even been known to track down a foosball table for some serious competition.

5. We sell software.

Obviously it wouldn’t be worth the investment if tradeshows didn’t benefit the bottom line, and they definitely do.  We think our success with tradeshows is because they give us the opportunity to talk with people, to listen to their challenges, and to explain how we believe we can help. Even if we don’t turn everyone into customers immediately, we’ve now given them something to think about when they are ready to find a solution.

Just in case you’ll be hitting the tradeshow circuit this fall, here are some of the places you’ll be able to find us:

Stop by our booth.  We always have chocolate!

Linoma Posts Another Year of Record Growth

Posted by on Friday, 19 April, 2013

We’ve had lots of reasons to celebrate lately at Linoma Software, and here are just a few.

Sales Are Soaring

GoAnywhere, Crypto Complete, Surveyor 400, RPG ToolboxThanks in no small part to having well designed and executed products and a superior support team, our enthusiastic sales team spent 2012 shattering sales records, and have already topped themselves in the first quarter of 2013.  We’ve been able to help customers from virtually every industry, including healthcare, finance and banking, insurance, manufacturing, education, retail, and government, and as we hear back from them about how GoAnywhere or Crypto Complete or Surveyor or RPG Toolbox has made their lives easier and their data more secure, we can share their stories with others seeking an affordable, enterprise-level solution.

Trade Show Season Is In Full Swing

We’ve already met lots of new people — and reconnected with old friends — at the RPG Summit, RSA Conference, COMMON, and InfoSec in Orlando, and this weekend we’re exhibiting with HANDD Business Solutions, one of our partners in the UK, at InfoSec Europe.  Then, we’re first-time exhibitors at the FOSE government conference in Washington D.C. in May and then we’re back in Europe for the COMMON-Europe conference in June.

We’ve Launched a New Website

If you haven’t visited our new GoAnywhere.com website yet, you should check it out.  Our team worked very hard to redesign not only the look and feel, but also the navigation to make it easier for visitors to find what they need.  We hope you’ll take a look and let us know what you think.

GoAnywhere OpenPGP Studio is Now Available

Last month we published a free desktop tool that can encrypt and decrypt files using OpenPGP encryption.  It’s a great solution for those who need to occasionally encrypt files, and OpenPGP Studio also helps organize and manage keys.  You can download OpenPGP Studio for free here.

We’ve also added some new faces to our team and are working on some pretty cool software enhancements as well as our first mobile app, which should be available very soon.

As always, we welcome your ideas and your feedback, and if you’ve got a great story to share about how one of our products has helped you work more efficiently or kept your data better protected, let us know. We’d love to hear it!
