GlobalSCAPE Positioned in Leaders Quadrant in Leading Industry Analyst Firm's Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer
SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a leading developer of secure information exchange solutions, announced today that it has been positioned as a Leader in Gartner's 2009 Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer (MFT). (The report is titled Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer, L. Frank Kenney, September 18, 2009)
Gartner described GlobalSCAPE and other leaders as the companies "most likely to have high revenue and commitment to the market, high market share and installed bases, and products that are of interest to a large audience." Gartner also noted that in many cases, as is true with GlobalSCAPE, "these vendors also have long histories in this market. However, new leaders in this market are demonstrating the ability to introduce new technologies and strategies, such as governing collaboration, or have demonstrated the ability to reach newer market segments, such as small or midsize businesses (SMBs). Finally, leaders have presented domain expertise and compelling messages that have penetrated the market (intentionally or unintentionally)."
"We're very pleased to be part of Gartner's Magic Quadrant Leaders Quadrant," said Jim Morris, GlobalSCAPE's president and CEO. "Gartner's recognition of the need for holistic MFT solutions that support and enable governance processes is spot on." Morris added, "We're confident that we'll continue to meet the market's need for flexible, cost-effective, and easy-to-deploy solutions, even in the most complex IT environments."
GlobalSCAPE's strengths include having a broad solution portfolio, which includes managed and ad hoc file delivery. In addition, GlobalSCAPE has won high-profile contracts with the U.S. Army and other government agencies, and obtained industry validations and certifications.
In the report, Gartner stresses that companies should look for MFT vendors that can meet both short-term tactical and long-term strategic needs. This is a key reason why GlobalSCAPE is the solution provider of choice for most of the Fortune 100 and for leading government agencies and system integrators.
GlobalSCAPE's MFT products, including Enterprise File Transfer Server™, Secure FTP Server™, Mail Express™, and its industry-leading CuteFTP® product family, allow organizations to intelligently and securely manage sensitive information, across multiple locations, and with customers and business partners. These solutions ensure the highest levels of compliance with industry and government data security and privacy regulations, along with corporate security policies and mandates.
