GlobalSCAPE Partners with Network Automation to Offer New Workflow Engine for EFT Server
SAN ANTONIO -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (AMEX:GSB), a leading provider of managed file transfer software that enables companies to securely send data over public networks, has partnered with Network Automation to offer a new workflow engine for GlobalSCAPE's enterprise server offering, EFT Server.
GlobalSCAPE is adding Network Automation's flagship AutoMateTM product as a module to EFT Server. This "Advanced Workflow Engine" is the latest module added to GlobalSCAPE EFT Server’s core functionality, and extends EFT Server's already robust Event Rule system. Administrators can use the easy drag-and-drop interface to define complex tasks, typically defined in scripts, batch files, macros, or other code-intensive processes, without the need to write code.
"Our OEM program gives software vendors an opportunity to add significant value to their products. This is clearly illustrated in the GlobalSCAPE partnership," said Dustin Snell, CEO of Network Automation. "Instead of selling point solutions, vendors can now offer a complete platform for automating virtually any operation related to their core product without requiring programming expertise. This offers a strong competitive advantage for software solutions of many kinds."
"EFT Server has always offered more than basic file transfer, but partnering with Network Automation allows us to transform the product into a file-related business process automation platform," said Tim Barton, Vice President and team leader of EFT Server products for GlobalSCAPE. "The Advanced Workflow Engine module will extend EFT Server's Event Rule System, and save our customers time and money as they develop workflows to streamline and automate complex processes involving file transfer."
GlobalSCAPE®, Inc. (AMEX: GSB), headquartered in San Antonio, TX, provides managed file transfer (MFT) products to securely exchange critical information over public networks. Since the release of CuteFTP in 1996, GlobalSCAPE's products have continued to evolve to meet the business and technology needs of an increasingly interconnected global marketplace.
