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 product and others from the company, please visit www.globalscape.com.
