SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE, Inc.

Each year, Computerworld ranks the top 100 work environments for technology professionals. Organizations that are selected are those that challenge their IT staff with exciting projects, offer them access to and training with today's hottest technology, and provide great benefits and compensation.
"To be among the Best Places to Work in IT, it's not enough just to seek out and hire the most talented IT people, offer them competitive pay and provide great benefits," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld.
