GlobalSCAPE Announces Next-Generation Mail Express Solution
SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a leading developer of secure information exchange solutions, announced today that the company will be releasing significant enhancements for its Mail Express™ solution. This managed file transfer (MFT) solution improves end user and IT admin productivity by simplifying the secure exchange of large email files.
Mail Express enables Microsoft Outlook email users to send and receive large files on demand – removing a widely recognized email infrastructure constraint. Users can simply and transparently send sensitive and large files, up to 25GB, without resorting to unapproved and potentially non-secure methods such as private email accounts, social media sites, CDs, and USB drives.
Mail Express provides increased benefits for the IT organization as well, offering greater visibility into email-based file movement across the enterprise, including robust tracking and auditing. It allows for centralized policy management so that IT can enforce policies on each user’s email account. In addition, Mail Express reduces costs by offloading expensive email attachments to less expensive storage.
"Many organizations use email as their primary collaboration tool with internal and external partners," said Thomas Skybakmoen, senior research analyst with Gartner, Inc. "However, companies often place restrictions on file sharing for security and performance reasons. Leading managed file transfer vendors are responding by providing organizations with secure file exchange mechanisms directly within their email infrastructure, providing full governance of email attachments."
Other Mail Express customer and administrative benefits include:
- Enhanced Microsoft® Outlook® user experience and conveniences such as user-defined usage policy and resumable uploads
- Improved productivity by allowing email users to exchange large files on demand with no end-user training required
- Two-way file sharing and collaboration
- Improved administrator experience through enhanced workflow in the user interface and a simplified deployment process
- Regulatory compliance and governance for privacy and security of sensitive information
"This new generation of Mail Express will greatly simplify secure file sharing between employees, customers, and partners," said Jim Morris, president and CEO of GlobalSCAPE. "This product continues the GlobalSCAPE tradition of providing solutions that not only connect systems, but connect people."
Available within the next 30 days, the upgraded Mail Express solution will be priced on the basis of product configuration and number of end users. For more information about this product and others from the company, please visit www.globalscape.com.
