HelpSystems acquires Linoma Software to meet rising security demand

  • From now on HelpSystems, parent company of Tango/04, will offer data encryption and secure managed file transfer solutions to its 9.000 clients around the world.

Barcelona, Spain. June, 2016 – HelpSystems, parent company of Tango/04, announced last week the acquisition of Linoma Software, whose secure managed file transfer (MFT) and data encryption products have propelled exciting growth. The acquisition broadens the HelpSystems security portfolio with solutions that fit specific needs and run on major operating systems.

Linoma Software is a Nebraska-based firm with more than 3,000 customers around the world. With Linoma’s GoAnywhere MFT™ solution, organizations centralize and secure data exchange with their business partners, customers, and employees—thanks to robust encryption and detailed audit trails. This innovative product allows businesses to better protect confidential file transfers and stay compliant with standards and regulations, including the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Linoma also offers Crypto Complete™ to protect data at rest within systems with strong AES-256 encryption and key management. This is essential for protecting confidential data including PCI, personally identifiable information (PII), and protected health information (PHI).

Linoma Software was founded by Bob and Christy Luebbe in 1994. Bob will continue to lead Linoma, serving as its Chief Architect and President.

Growth in our security business is strong and we saw an opportunity to expand our offering with managed file transfer and encryption,” said Chris Heim, CEO, HelpSystems. “Linoma provides industry-leading solutions in both of these categories.”

This is an exciting new chapter for Linoma Software,” said Luebbe. “HelpSystems knows security well and is dedicated to protecting its customers’ information systems. By joining forces we can combine our security expertise and carry a more complete solution to more organizations around the world.”
