Globalscape Listed as Managed File Transfer "Champion" by Info-Tech Research Group
Independent Review Names Globalscape an Authority in File Transfer for Second Consecutive Year
SAN ANTONIO, TX - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSB), a developer of secure information exchange solutions, has been listed as a "Champion" in Info-Tech Research Group’s Vendor Landscape for managed file transfer (MFT).
The report highlights Globalscape’s innovations around product security, the availability of multiple deployment options, and the company’s historical footprint in the secure file transfer market. This is the second consecutive year that Globalscape has been named a Champion—the highest-ranking category.
“Globalscape’s highly customizable solution can be configured to meet varying organizational needs and requirements. In particular, government and security-orientated organizations will find this solution’s security features appealing,” said Stewart Bond, senior consulting analyst for Info-Tech Research Group.
According to the report, “FTP is no longer seen as a viable option to manage file transfer securely in and outside of the enterprise. MFT has filled that role and is seeing rapid adoption as compliance standards extend their reach.”
Globalscape’s flagship MFT solution, Enhanced File Transfer (EFT), received an exemplary rating for product functionality.
“The Info-Tech MFT Vendor Landscape report emphasizes the strength, usability, and advanced functionality of Globalscape’s secure file transfer solutions,” said Craig Robinson, president and CEO of Globalscape. “The research further validates our ability to bring immediate value to our customers, allowing them to operate securely, efficiently, and in compliance with industry regulations.”
