Mobility and Global Communication: Cornerstones of the New CuteFTP®
SAN ANTONIO - November 27, 2012 - Globalscape (NYSE MKT: GSB) announced today that it has updated its consumer FTP client offerings with the newest version of its award-winning CuteFTP® software. With consumer demand driving the update, Globalscape now offers several new, key features including mobility and global communication options as well as performance enhancements for CuteFTP.
Version 9 of CuteFTP introduces the addition of TappIn™, a secure mobile file sharing application. CuteFTP users can decide whether to share files via FTP or by logging into TappIn. This gives CuteFTP users the ultimate in flexibility, allowing others who may not have an FTP client to access files shared via TappIn.
To further meet the demands of customers, CuteFTP version 9 provides UTF-8 character encoding support for international file naming, support for WebDAV shares, and numerous interface and security enhancements. This provides users the ability to communicate globally with ease.
CuteFTP version 9 also combines all features and functionality previously found in three separate editions of the product (Pro, Home and Lite) into a single package. CuteFTP is the easiest and most secure way to transfer files between desktops, mobile devices, and remote servers using comprehensive protocol options such as FTP/S, HTTP/S, and SFTP. And with CuteFTP's built-in HTML editor, users can edit their files on remote servers.
"Millions of consumers have chosen CuteFTP as their source for secure, reliable file data transfers since it was released in 1996," says Bill Buie, Globalscape Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The features added in CuteFTP version 9 are a great way to add value while meeting the evolving file transfer needs of our customers around the world."
Users upgrading from earlier CuteFTP versions can automatically migrate their existing CuteFTP sites and global options to version 9.
