SAN ANTONIO -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (AMEX:GSB),
a leading developer of file-centric solutions for the internet, today announced
the development of GlobalSCAPE File Express. GlobalSCAPE File Express is a powerful,
next-generation file transfer that integrates seamlessly into Microsoft Outlook.
"We developed GlobalSCAPE File Express in response to high customer demand for a
file transfer solution that optimizes their corporate e-mail infrastructure investments,"
stated Greg Hoffer, GlobalSCAPE Vice President of New Products.
GlobalSCAPE File Express, expected to be generally available in December, continues
GlobalSCAPE’s tradition of delivering easy-to-use, secure solutions. End users can
seamlessly connect with customers, partners, and suppliers using the Outlook plug-in.
"GlobalSCAPE File Express transparently plugs into MS Outlook and provides fast,
secure movement of large e-mail attachments. Customers therefore will be able to
improve end-user productivity without sacrificing security or increasing IT workload,"
Because there are no extra clicks or training, GlobalSCAPE File Express customers
will be up and running very quickly, unlike users of competing solutions that typically
require training, tedious installations, or changes to workflow. While Hoffer declined
to comment on specific plans for future versions of GlobalSCAPE File Express, he
did indicate that GlobalSCAPE plans to continue development of GlobalSCAPE File
Express for other e-mail solutions. "This release allows GlobalSCAPE to directly
support customers using Microsoft Outlook, which comes bundled in the MS Office
Suite used in so many businesses and home offices," Hoffer noted. "As leaders in
secure file transfers since 1996, we recognize that there are other areas in which
GlobalSCAPE File Express can be applied. We will consider those areas for inclusion
in future releases."
GlobalSCAPE File Express builds on technology GlobalSCAPE developed for prior secure
file transfer products, including CuteFTP® and Secure FTP Server®.
The newly announced solution provides an on-premises alternative to these products
and allows central policy enforcement driven by IT administrators. GlobalSCAPE File
Express also provides a single point of accountability and auditing for attachments
sent from Microsoft Outlook.
GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (AMEX: GSB), headquartered in San Antonio, TX, provides managed
file transfer (MFT) products to securely exchange critical information over public
networks. Since the release of CuteFTP in 1996, GlobalSCAPE's products have continued
to evolve to meet the business and technology needs of an increasingly interconnected
