Save time and money when you automate processes with EFT and improve your business's file transfer efficiency.

  • EFT Automation. Deliver data without manual intervention. Your administrators can easily automate everyday data movement: use rules to trigger file transfers, easily monitor both folders and your cloud storage systems, and set timed actions to make your business processes more efficient than ever before.
  • Advanced Workflow Engine (AWE). Streamline data movements without worrying about legacy systems and applications with EFT’s AWE. Respond to potential issues proactively when you use AWE to create sophisticated workflows that maneuver through complex processes.
  • Remote Agent Module (RAM). Automate transactions from distributed systems and gain centralized control. Connect your branch offices, point-of-sales terminals, and any other remote systems to your EFT server at corporate.
  • High Availability (HA). Ensure consistent and reliable availability when you use EFT Enterprise’s HA solution. Active-active deployment provides HA and load balancing for continual network availability.

Use multi-layered security to protect your essential business processes.

  • OpenPGP Module. Encrypt, decrypt, verify, safeguard files at rest, and sign file transfers with EFT’s OpenPGP module. Public-key and symmetric cryptography provide secure data exchanges for your communications and storage.
  • Express Security and Advanced Security. Achieve or exceed even the most rigorous security standards with authentication, continuous monitoring, and data loss prevention. Actively monitor your security and enable alerts on both low-security options and non-compliance.
  • DMZ Gateway. Liaise through your Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and avoid giving external users access to your internal networks. Keep your data safe despite any storage, retrieval, or authentication.
  • Content Integrity Control (CIC). CIC helps you both maintain confidentiality and keep your network clear of files containing malware. Integrate with antivirus software and DLP tools to gate file transfers.
  • Two-Factor Authentication. Select and use a two-factor authentication method with EFT to add a layer of protection to your file transfers.
  • Threat Mitigation. Advanced Personal Threat (APT) attacks continue to serve as a significant concern for organizations, with many existing and malicious variations. To help mitigate these attacks, EFT’s denial of service (DoS) and Flood prevention controls have been augmented to cover attacks targeting the HTTP protocol, with unauthenticated probing resulting in temporary to permanent IP banning. 

Whether you are sending one file or many, a secure file sharing solution like Globalscape EFT uses encryption and restricted authorization to help ensure data security and privacy.
