GlobalSCAPE Announces New Hosted Content Management

Now Available as a Hosted Service - PureCMS™ Offers Small to Medium-Sized Businesses a More Convenient Way to Manage Web Site Content

SAN ANTONIO – GlobalSCAPE (OTCBB:GSCP) today announced the availability of its PureCMS hosted content management service.

PureCMS now enables organizations to share responsibility for Web site content among non-technical team members, without the need to install and manage a software application internally. The service enables an administrator to manage multiple Web sites from a single Web-based interface and ensures consistent workflow for content contributors. The PureCMS hosted service enables small organizations with limited IT resources to save time and money through use of a content management system that does not require investment in hardware, software or additional IT personnel and provides 24-hour availability, backup and ongoing maintenance of a staging environment for their Web sites.

"Mid-size organizations need scalable Web content management systems that deploy quickly, don't require excessive user or administrator training, and most importantly, are affordable," says GlobalSCAPE President and COO, Sandra Christal. "The PureCMS service eliminates the need for up-front installation and configuration of hardware and software, saving time and money. The PureCMS service can have a new client managing their Web content almost immediately, and provides the structure needed to improve productivity and ultimately the effectiveness of their Web sites," continued Christal.

PureCMS is Web-based and Windows®-like, so it's familiar. Users can access the service from any computer connected to the Internet with Internet Explorer 5.5 or greater. Users simply browse to a protected copy of their Web site, hosted on GlobalSCAPE's PureCMS staging server, click the page they want to edit and make textual or graphic changes on screen. Users can even copy and paste information from Windows applications such as Microsoft Word or Excel into their Web sites. Once the user saves the proposed changes, PureCMS sends the designated group leader an email notification that the changes are pending approval. The group leader can compare the proposed changes to the previous version, approve and publish, or schedule for publishing later, all in a matter of seconds, without the need for help from their Webmaster.

PureCMS customers range from small businesses to large multinational organizations and exist in growth markets including local, state and federal government, finance and banking, healthcare, technology and higher education.
