October Recap

Happy Fall! Yes, even Texas has an autumn season, but instead of sweaters and fall colors, it just means it's less broiling in the sun—and, of course, FOOTBALL! Texas is known for its love of football!

Football aside, Globalscape certainly has been busy this month with cloud being on the forefront! Leading the discussion on the cloud conversation, Globalscape President and CEO Matt Goulet shared his thoughts in our product strategy series, “Globalscape Adapts to Cloud Requirements.” We also shared details on how our Enhanced File TransferTM (EFTTM) platform is available in popular Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) marketplaces like Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

In the cloud and on-premises, Globalscape EFT has helped many organizations enhance the security, productivity and overall efficiency of their IT infrastructure. For that reason, Globalscape Vice President of Product Strategy and Technology Alliances Peter Merkulov discussed how organizations benefit from EFT in the blog, “The ROI of EFT Enterprise – A Look at the Numbers.” EFT not only helps with security, productivity and efficiency – it also helps facilitate compliance.
