Globalscape EFT Automation

Automate and optimize business processes


Reduce Complexity of Tedious File Transfer Tasks

Anchor ID:


Delivering data using manual processes is vulnerable to workforce limitations, vacations, turnover, and simple human error. Automation allows you to deliver data without manual intervention, saving time and avoiding potential errors. Globalscape Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) enables you to streamline business processes without limitations imposed by legacy systems and applications. With an intuitive interface, administrators can easily create automate file transfers. 

Define Powerful Workflow Actions

Automate Tasks Easily to Save Time

Anchor ID:


The File Transfer Client (FTC) enables Globalscape EFT admins to define copy, move, and download actions in Event Rules. For example, you could define a rule to trigger when a file is uploaded, so that Globalscape EFT moves it to another folder.

Establish Event Rules

Anchor ID:


The Enterprise Actions Module (EAM) allows Globalscape EFT admins to configure and run Event Rules such as REST invocations and subroutines. Centralize and simplify your processes by using EAM to create Event Rules with actions for compression, custom commands, PowerShell scripts, file/folder operations, dataset loops, CSV export/import, invoking web services, and more.

Monitor Folders and Perform Actions

Anchor ID:


The Folder Monitor Module (FMM) creates an Event Rule trigger used to detect the creation, deletion, and renaming of files in a monitored folder, and to perform Actions based on these triggers. For example, perhaps a weekly report is uploaded to a specific folder. You can define an Event Rule so that when Globalscape EFT detects that a file has been added to the folder, an email is sent to notify one or more users that the report is available for download.

Set Timed Actions

Set Timed Actions

Anchor ID:


The Timer Event Module (TEM) allows you to execute a specified Action (e.g., generate and send a report) only one time or to repeat at specified intervals. For example, you could schedule an Action to occur on July 8 at midnight, or every Monday morning, or on the last Friday of every month at 2 a.m.

Monitor Objects in Cloud Storage

Monitor Objects in Cloud Storage

Anchor ID:


With cloud object monitoring, admins can connect natively to Amazon S3 and Azure blobs without scripting, manual browsing, or complexity in setting up connections or integrate natively with cloud storage through EFT without the need for outside integration.

With cloud object monitoring you can:

  • Automatically copy/move files arriving at EFT to cloud storage
  • Timer rules can download files from cloud storage at set intervals
  • Integrate seamlessly with EFT’s other powerful post-processing engine

Auto-Capture Metadata

Anchor ID:


Create custom upload web forms with the Secure Forms Module (SFM). Collect data securely with these unique forms, capture metadata during file upload when using the web client, and kick off downstream processes based on event rules when metadata meets your preset requirements.
