Infosecurity Europe 2011
Stand Number G84
LONDON - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a leading developer of secure information exchange solutions, is showcasing its award-winning Managed Information Xchange™ (MIX) and Enhanced File Transfer Server™ (EFT Server™) offerings this week at the 2011 Infosecurity Europe conference in London. Both solutions enable companies to securely exchange business-to-business data with customers and partners. The Texas-based company will also be discussing recent customer deployments in the UK including Thomas Cook and Enfield Council.
GlobalSCAPE will demonstrate its EFT Server solution, including new features that deliver additional security, visibility, and workflow benefits for enterprise customers. The company will also feature its MIX solution, a fully-managed cloud-based service for securely exchanging business-to-business data. MIX recently won the Info Security Products Guide 2011 Global Excellence Award in the Cloud category, validating the product's groundbreaking advancements in information security.
GlobalSCAPE is also announcing two additional UK customer deployments at Enfield Council and Thomas Cook, a global travel operator. These UK customers reflect GlobalSCAPE's increasing European market share, which now includes over 2,000 European customers.
HANDD Business Solutions, a UK-based GlobalSCAPE reseller and partner, provided consulting and technical support for both customers, including deployment of GlobalSCAPE's EFT Server. HANDD is a leading independent managed file transfer (MFT) specialist firm that serves some of the largest public and private companies across Europe.
"We look forward to showcasing our solutions at Infosec Europe again this year and discussing how our solutions are helping customers like Thomas Cook and Enfield Council solve their business data exchange challenges in a secure, efficient, and seamless way," said Melinde Henderson, GlobalSCAPE's director of channel sales.
UK Customers Seek Out Secure File Transfer Solution from GlobalSCAPE
Like most successful, global companies, Thomas Cook is continually searching for ways to streamline its operations, increase services, and pass on the tangible benefits of cost efficiencies to its customers. This effort becomes more challenging for companies like Thomas Cook, which operate sophisticated travel and hospitality businesses across multiple continents. Thomas Cook not only needed to protect data, but also had complex requirements for sending, accessing, sharing, and securing information.
After evaluating many solutions, Thomas Cook chose GlobalSCAPE's EFT Server to solve its data management and transfer challenges. EFT Server not only helped Thomas Cook protect all data transfers and meet regulatory needs, but it also solved their complex large file transfer challenges between multiple locations. Seamless integration with other systems also made the deployment straightforward.
Enfield Council sought a recognized and robust solution for exchanging files with partner organizations and suppliers. Their data included sensitive information and large files that could not be transmitted through the email system. Enfield chose EFT Server to ensure files of any size would be securely transferred and to provide a fully monitored and traceable audit trail. In addition, Enfield also recognized that EFT Server could help meet their strict legislative and regulatory requirements for information security.
"With EFT Server, we finally have a highly secure and simple means for staff to transfer files efficiently over the Internet," said Oliver Rhodes, who leads the Enfield IT infrastructure team. "We also have access to a seasoned support team in HANDD to help us sustain the EFT Server solution and meet future requirements."
