New in EFT
EFT 2013 (v6.5)
The new EFT 2013 platform (formerly EFT Server) focuses on added support for customers who have a large number of users, robust international capabilities and the addition of a powerful ad-hoc file sharing tool with the integration of Mail Express.
Full Unicode Support
Full* support for Unicode UTF-8 encoding throughout the product, from protocols to event processing, including support for International Domain Names (IDN).

Admin GUI Optimizations
Fixed issues with tri-state toggles for managing setting inheritance.
Internal optimizations to VFS and other areas of EFT in order to support large numbers of users (150K).
Show Percentage Complete
Status viewer update to show the % complete of ongoing transfers (protocol and direction dependent).
AES 128/256 CTR
Extend SFTP AES cipher support (inbound and outbound) to include AES counter mode ciphers, in addition to the current cipher block mode (CBC) AES ciphers already supported.

Search mode can now find matching values within nodes. For example, find an Event Rule based on the rule’s contents, as opposed to just the rule name.
