SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a
leading developer of secure
information exchange solutions, today
announced that Enhanced File Transfer (EFT) Server 6.1 has received the
Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) from the US Army Network Technology
Command (NETCOM). The CoN states that, "GlobalSCAPE's EFT Server will be
used to secure or improve upon existing measures for transmitting data
over the LandWarNet. EFT Server's file management software ensures
compliance with Government regulations on protecting information and
allows enterprises to reduce IT costs, increase efficiency, track and
audit transactions, and automate processes."
The CoN received for Enhanced File Server 6.1 allows GlobalSCAPE to
deliver this highly scalable, managed file transfer solution across all
organizations using or managing automated information systems that
integrate or interoperate with any portion of the Army Enterprise
Infostructure (AEI). The LandWarNet, in particular, delivers data and
information to the Army's brigades, battalions, and lower echelons,
enabling the distributed operations required to support net-centric
The CoN process also applies to all Department of Defense (DoD), Joint,
Combined, Federal, non-DoD, and Coalition weapon and information systems,
National Security Systems (NSS), and all infrastructure programs that use
or have interoperability requirements with the AEI. The broad
applicability of the CoN potentially provides significant sales
opportunities for GlobalSCAPE.
