SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. today announced that its
flagship file transfer protocol product, CuteFTP 4.0, was recently awarded
the coveted CNET Editors' Choice award. The Editors' Choice is respected as
a standard for excellence in product design, performance, quality and value.
In the software industry, CNET's product reviews are a significant vehicle
that connects technology-product buyers and sellers. Many of CNET's viewers,
consisting of more than 9.3 million people, consult Editors' Choice reviews
when making purchasing decisions. GlobalSCAPE is a majority-owned Internet
software subsidiary of American TeleSource International, Inc. (AMEX: AI)

"This is an outstanding honor for GlobalSCAPE and CuteFTP," states Sandra
Poole-Christal, President of GlobalSCAPE. "We work hard to create
high-quality software that is affordable for the consumer and very
user-friendly. It is rewarding to know that our efforts are being recognized
by some of the industry’s most creditable sources."

As mentioned in the published video review by CNET, CuteFTP is the best
all-around file transfer application on the market. Citing CuteFTP's Windows
Explorer-like interface, CNET recommends it for newcomers to get started.
For the more experienced user, the application’s high-end enhancements, such
as firewall support, make it a good choice for those already knowledgeable
about FTP.

According to the review by CNET, for Windows users, CuteFTP is the easiest
file transfer utility available on the market today. This FTP client's
interface looks just like Windows Explorer, with multiple windowpanes that
show the user’s default local storage folder, the contents of the FTP server
the user is logged on to, and any files that are queued for download. To
transfer files, the user simply has to drag and drop the files from the FTP
server to a local drive.
