GlobalSCAPE Receives SATAI Technology Superstar Award
Company Poised for Leadership Position in Technology
SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a
leading developer of secure
information exchange solutions, today announced that it has received a
Technology Superstar Award from SATAI,
a technology acceleration and
commercialization center based in San Antonio. The annual Technology
Superstar Award recognizes companies that are poised to become leaders
in the South Texas technology community.
"GlobalSCAPE is a success story with strong credentials in US and
international IT markets," said Jim Poage, president and CEO of SATAI.
"SATAI aims to increase mutual awareness, business relationships, and
sales across our technology industries. We look forward to working with
GlobalSCAPE to advance the technology community in San Antonio and
GlobalSCAPE's leadership team has substantial prior experience and
extensive contacts within the local, state, and national IT communities.
President and CEO Jim Morris opened the San Antonio office of Trident
Data Systems (acquired by General Dynamics) and, as the senior executive,
grew the operation to more than 200 employees serving national security
and Fortune 100 commercial customers. Craig Robinson, Chief Operating
Officer, was Trident's commercial president and later co-founded Secure
Network Consulting, Inc. (SNCi) in San Antonio. Through acquisitions by
AXENT Technologies and Symantec Corporation, SNCi provided the foundation
for Symantec's professional services organization. Other GlobalSCAPE
executives have held leadership positions at Southwest Research Institute
and SecureLogix in San Antonio.
Robinson accepted GlobalSCAPE's Technology Superstar Award at the SATAI
STARs 2009 Technology Innovation Conference held last week at the University
of Incarnate Word. "These are exciting times for GlobalSCAPE," said
Robinson. "The Technology Superstar Award reflects our continued deep ties
within the San Antonio business community as we have grown into an
international leader in our target markets."
The Technology Superstar Award is the fifth industry recognition of
GlobalSCAPE since September. Gartner Group identified GlobalSCAPE as a leader
in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer, published on
September 18, 2009. GlobalSCAPE announced earlier this month that it was
ranked among the top 50 workplaces in San Antonio for 2009 by the San Antonio
Express-News. The full list and ranking was noted in the
Special Edition Top Workplaces 2009 publication on October 11, 2009. The company also
announced that it has been named to Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™,
a ranking that recognizes the fastest growing technology, media,
telecommunications, life sciences, and clean technology companies in North
America. Most recently, the US Army awarded GlobalSCAPE a Certificate of
Networthiness for Enhanced File Transfer Server™ 6.1.
"We have established tremendous business momentum, as described in our
recent announcements," Robinson added. "The diversity of our recent industry
recognitions validates our continued emphasis on operational excellence.
