GlobalSCAPE Earns Top Rating in Latest Managed File Transfer Vendor Report
SAN ANTONIO, TX - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSB) achieved one of the highest ratings in the latest Managed File Transfer (MFT) Vendor Landscape Report from Info-Tech Research Group released this week. The report designated GlobalSCAPE a "Champion" in its Vendor Landscape matrix and awarded the company "Exemplary Performer" status in both security strength and ad hoc file transfer capabilities.
Info-Tech Research Group evaluated criteria such as strategy, viability, sales and support reach, and channel partner programs. GlobalSCAPE scored high in all categories, earning the ranking of "Champion." Notably, the evaluation of the company's strategy garnered one of the highest possible scores—due in part to the recent TappIn acquisition and the company's approach to mobile file access.
"The report underscores GlobalSCAPE's overall product strength," says GlobalSCAPE CEO Jim Morris. "Adding an effective mobile access component through TappIn is a prime example of our heavy emphasis on security and accessibility, and how that focus can deliver immediate value to any customer's operations."
Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape Reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, the Reports pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category.
Also playing a role in GlobalSCAPE's rating is the assessment of GlobalSCAPE's leading MFT solution, EFT Server Enterprise. Commended for its ability to meet advanced security requirements, its flexible deployment options, and GlobalSCAPE's responsive customer support, EFT Server also received the highest marks for its available features and flexible system architecture.
"The evolution of MFT solutions reflects the broad change in mindset that a secure, effective way to deliver digital information is no longer optional, but critical to any file transfer operation," says Stewart Bond, Senior Research Analyst, Info-Tech Research Group.
