GlobalSCAPE Teams with McLane Advanced Technologies (MAT) for US Army Contract
MAT Team Wins Re-Compete Contract for SAMS-E Program
SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a leading developer of secure information exchange solutions, announced today that the company is a subcontractor on the McLane Advanced Technologies (MAT) industry team that recently won a $52.3 million re-compete contract for the US Army Standard Army Maintenance System (SAMS-E). The MAT team includes Northrop Grumman Information Systems, GlobalSCAPE, Logistics and Technology Services (LTS), CALIBRE Systems, HCI Integrated Solutions, SAIC, and Joint Logistics Managers. Work on this contract will begin in October 2010 for a period of three years.
GlobalSCAPE will provide professional and technical services to support the SAMS-E program, including Secure FTP Server™ and CuteFTP®, secure information exchange solutions integrated into the SAMS-E environment. The company may also deliver enhanced software solutions for SAMS-E under the new contract.
MAT executive vice president Bob Reeves commented, "We're pleased to have GlobalSCAPE on our team for SAMS-E. GlobalSCAPE has been supporting SAMS-E for several years. Their deep expertise and capabilities in secure information exchange will be critical to the continued success of the program."
As a maintenance systems modernization initiative, SAMS-E is a bridge between current system functionality and the US Army's future Global Combat Support System (GCSS-Army). GlobalSCAPE has been helping the US Army ensure secure delivery of mission-critical data around the world since 2005. GlobalSCAPE has received several substantial product license and maintenance and support orders from the US Army, including a $2.7 million order in April 2009 and other orders in May 2007 and September 2005. GlobalSCAPE's solutions were also recently featured in the July – August 2010 issue of Defense AT&L, a defense acquisition and logistics publication read by many Department of Defense decision makers.
"We are very pleased that the McLane Advanced Technologies team, which includes GlobalSCAPE, won the US Army SAMS-E re-compete contract," stated Bill Buie, GlobalSCAPE executive vice president of sales. "We are excited to continue supporting the Army through this contract and others established with the Army. We believe that this recent win reinforces GlobalSCAPE's position as a trusted provider for delivering information superiority to warfighters within the Army and to other DOD customers."
GlobalSCAPE products allow the US Army and other defense departments to comply with data security requirements, while minimizing the cost and timelines for both software development and sustainment. The company's products use industry-standard secure protocols and have earned both the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS 140-2) certification and the Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) from the US Army's Network Enterprise Technology Command. These certifications ensure the systems are in full compliance with federal and US Army technical and information security regulations and standards.
