New Certificate Provides Upgrade Path for US Army and other Government Customers
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 operations.
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.
"We believe there has been pent up demand for Enhanced File Transfer Server within the DoD and broader national security markets," says Jim Morris, president and CEO of GlobalSCAPE. "This latest version of our managed file transfer server solution now has the certifications and validations necessary for wider market adoption."
