For many government agencies and organizations, securing their data isn’t their only data management issue, its years and years of multiple systems that have been cobbled together, leading to layers of scripting and unreliable, incommunicative systems.

As departments and agencies modernize, phasing out or repairing legacy systems becomes more and more of a necessity. Secure data exchange solutions help government agencies and organizations manage and share data from any device while ensuring only the people that should have access, get access.

Significantly increase the security of your data, easily integrate legacy or disparate systems, all while maintaining compliance for data transfers with Globalscape’s managed file transfer solution solution, Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™).

EFT for Government features:

Protecting government networks at all levels, Globalscape’s Army-safe managed file transfer solution, EFT for Government, uses industry-standard secure protocols, is FIPS 140-2 compliant and has received the Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) from the U.S. Army’s Network Enterprise Technology Command.

By implementing EFT for Government, federal, state and local agencies or organizations can configure, deploy, and manage data and information exchange policies from a central location, while tracking, auditing, and guaranteeing their delivery. EFT for Government can add an additional layer of security by scanning files for viruses or proprietary information. Advanced auditing capabilities allows you to exchange files with other agencies and partners without worry.
