GlobalSCAPE Introduces Enterprise-Class File Transfer Solution to SMB Market
SAN ANTONIO -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (AMEX:
GSB), a leading developer of file transfer solutions, today announced Enhanced
File Transfer Server Version 6.0. This newest version of GlobalSCAPE's flagship
information-sharing solution brings enterprise-class compliance and other
high-end file transfer protocol (FTP) capabilities to the small-to-medium
(SMB) market at affordable price points.
Along with a host of powerful new features, the introduction of Enhanced File Transfer
Server Version 6.0 marks a rebranding of the company’s flagship FTP solutions. GlobalSCAPE’s
legacy Secure FTP Server and EFT Server solutions are now available as EFT Server
and EFT Server Enterprise, respectively. Additionally, with the new offering,
GlobalSCAPE has adopted a common, scalable solution suite that accommodates a broad
family of add-on modules to support customers’ ever increasing information sharing
needs, while also maintaining backward compatibility with the company’s legacy products.
GlobalSCAPE add-on solutions such as the Auditing and Reporting Module (ARM),
High-Security Payment Card Industry (HS-PCI) Module, OpenPGP Module, Web Transfer
Client, and DMZ Gateway now are available for Secure FTP Server customers who upgrade
to EFT Server or EFT Server Enterprise. The add-on modules and solutions give
SMB customers the full functionality to address regulatory compliance requirements
with a proven, scalable FTP solution. Larger enterprises also can implement EFT
Server 6.0 in a hub-and-spoke architecture, with EFT Server Enterprise deployed
as the hubs and EFT Server as the spokes.
"We’re changing the FTP game by bringing to SMB customers high-end capabilities
previously associated with expensive enterprise-class solutions," said Robert
Oslin, Director of Product Management at GlobalSCAPE. "Our new EFT Server 6.0 has
unequivocally surpassed the legacy Secure FTP Server competition because proven
performance and years of enterprise-level enhancements are integrated into the
solution suite. With 6.0, we’ve set a new standard with the most powerful SMB FTP
server on the market, bar none."
Because it delivers an integrated solution suite, GlobalSCAPE EFT Server 6.0 provides
straightforward upgrade paths. For example, thousands of Secure FTP Server 3.x customers
now can upgrade directly to EFT Server 6.0. These users and EFT Server 5.0 customers
also can upgrade their legacy installations to EFT Server Enterprise 6.0.
EFT Server Enterprise supports large-enterprise installations and now includes
a powerful disaster recovery and staging tool and Oracle database support. EFT Server
Enterprise also is compatible with the new Advanced Workflow Engine (AWE) Module
released by GlobalSCAPE last month. The AWE Module provides over 200 built-in
‘drag and drop’ workflow actions, including sending SNMP traps, communicating with
mainframe computers, redirecting or relocating files, integrating SQL and XML capabilities,
and executing third-party applications, custom programs, and batch files.
"Our Version 6.0 suite of solutions reflects almost two years of cumulative development
effort since the last major release of EFT Server in June 2007," noted Tim Barton,
GlobalSCAPE Vice President and Chief Engineer. "We have incorporated significant
customer and market feedback and leveraged our substantial file transfer expertise
to deliver this much-enhanced solution. No other managed file transfer product
provides an equivalent level of compatibility with industry standards and support
for regulatory compliance initiatives."
GlobalSCAPE EFT Server Version 6.0 is available immediately with pricing dependent
upon applications and product configuration. For more information about this new
