Enhanced File Transfer Version 7 Offers High Availability, Stronger Security, and Better Usability

SAN ANTONIO, TX – GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSB), the secure information exchange company, launched version 7 of its Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) platform on July 3rd. The latest upgrade provides organizations with even more control over their mission-critical information by offering several new features, including support for active-active, high availability (HA) architectures, expanded PCI DSS version 3.0 facilitation, and an advanced Web Transfer Client (WTC) that leverages HTML5 technology.

“In a recent study, we found that nearly 90 percent of organizations unexpectedly lose access to critical systems, resulting in lost data, productivity, and, of course, end-user frustration,” said James Bindseil, president and CEO of Globalscape. “Active-active, high availability architectures—like what is now available in EFT version 7—play a crucial role in maximizing uptime and performance, and mitigating the negative ramifications of downtime.”

Globalscape’s EFT platform gives IT professionals everything they need to secure, manage, and govern the files and data leaving their organization. The new functionality in version 7 enables organizations to:

  • Maximize the uptime and performance of critical IT systems through the new active-active, HA architecture
  • Enhance the compatibility of WTC file transfers by adding HTML5 support in addition to the existing Java Runtime Environment
  • Increase scalability and business continuity with more flexible, uninterrupted file transfer service
  • Facilitate PCI DSS version 3.0 compliance with updates to security components, such as PGP and AS2

“Today’s workforce demands fast, easy, and secure tools to share information and transfer files,” said Chandana Gopal, manager of IDC’s MFT research. “There has been a resurgence in managed file transfer spending driven by significant growth of data-in-motion and enterprise need for control, governance, visibility and reliability. MFT platforms that satisfy both business and IT will be the growth leaders.”

New Modular Availability for EFT

Globalscape’s EFT platform has been repackaged to more directly and uniquely meet the file-transfer needs of various organizations. From small businesses to major enterprises, Globalscape’s new modular approach allows organizations to customize the EFT platform and pay for only the functionality they need.

“Globalscape’s new EFT model makes it easier than ever before for organizations of all sizes to effectively leverage its managed file transfer solution,” said Ian Davin, CEO of HANDD Business Solutions. “This new approach, along with the advanced functionality and high availability architecture offered in EFT version 7, make Globalscape a perfect partner for organizations looking to secure, automate, and manage file transfers company-wide.”
