GlobalSCAPE Announces the Release of CuteFTP 8 Home and Professional

GlobalSCAPE's CuteFTP 8 Adds PGP Security, Complete Podcasting Management, and New and Improved Automation to the World's Premiere FTP Client

SAN ANTONIO -- Today GlobalSCAPE® (OTCBB:GSCP), a leading provider of managed file transfer software, announced the availability of CuteFTP 8, the latest version of its award-winning FTP client. CuteFTP 8 is available in both Home and Professional versions. Home offers value and ease-of-use for the casual user, while Professional maintains that ease-of-use and adds strong security and automation of tasks for business users. Additions to CuteFTP 8 include PGP encryption, complete podcasting support, expanded backup options, improved search and enhancements to the interface that make it even easier to use than ever before.

"CuteFTP 8 is the logical evolution of our FTP client," said Ted Marchut, product manager for CuteFTP. "The addition of PGP encryption to existing SSL and SSH security makes CuteFTP 8 the benchmark for file transfer security and compatibility. Also, CuteFTP 8's Task Automation Wizards make configuring automated transfers such as site mirroring, site back-ups and scheduled transfers a breeze."

CuteFTP 8 meets industry demands for FTP clients with these new tools:

  • PGP encryption and decryption ensures compatibility with industry standards and keeps your data secure during transfer and storage.
  • PodCast Manager handles all of your podcast subscriptions and publishing in one application. It creates podcast RSS feeds, uploads new audio files and automatically downloads new episodes.
  • Local Backup quickly and easily backs up your computer to a remote server for added data security.

  • Turbo Transfer speeds up CuteFTP Home file transfer without additional configuration.
  • Color-coded tabs make it easier to navigate with CuteFTP Professional. Now, managing multiple transfers to multiple sites is easier than ever.
  • Improved Mode Z compression speeds the transfer of ASP, BMP, CSS, DAT, DOC, EXE, HTM, JS, LOG, PDF, PHP, PL, PPT, PY, SWF, TXT, VBS, XLS, XML and XSL files.
  • Task Automation Wizards ease configuration of scheduling file transfers, hot drop (folder monitoring), backing up remote servers, mirroring local and remote systems and adding new servers to the Site Manager.
