GlobalSCAPE, Inc. Delivers Secure File Sharing and Collaboration with Release of Workspaces

Workspaces Provides End User Choice and Ease-of-Use without Sacrificing IT Governance

SAN ANTONIO - GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSB), the secure information exchange company, announces the immediate availability of Workspaces™, a new addition to its managed file transfer (MFT) solution suite, Enhanced File TransferTM (EFTTM). EFT is an advanced, powerful replacement for insecure legacy FTP servers, inflexible and haphazard home-grown file transfer solutions, slow physical shipment of data, and expensive leased lines and VANs. Workspaces allows employees to share folders and their files with any other user without sacrificing governance, visibility, or control.

According to a recent report, Gartner expects total MFT software revenue worldwide (including licenses, SaaS/cloud-based apps, maintenance and technical support) to exceed $500 million by 2016, with more than 70 percent of the total software revenue generated in North America. The ease, low cost and proliferation of cloud storage services helped propel the market to even higher heights last year, but continued to widen a concerning gap between end user convenience and IT control.

Workspaces boasts a combination of security features that other products—including cloud-based services—can’t match:

  • An on-premises solution that eliminates the risk of shared-infrastructure, cloud-based services;
  • The Globalscape DMZ Gateway ensures secure inbound communications into the network;
  • Multiple secure protocols, including HTTPS, FTP, FTPS and SFTP;
  • Workflow automation to support compliance with corporate data management and governance policy; and,
  • Flexible authentication and encryption allow users to easily and safely share folders with existing and new user accounts without burdening IT administrators.

And unlike cloud-based services IT administrators retain full control and visibility of the file transfer infrastructure, ensuring the highest levels of security and regulatory compliance.

Greg Hoffer, Senior Director of Engineering, Globalscape

"The cost of acquisition with many cloud storage and file sharing services may be low, but the potential for loss is quite high because control is in the hands of the user and the data is outside the purview of IT. Workspaces is a simple, secure and powerful option for businesses that want the confidence of an on-premises file sharing solution that combines user driven file collaboration, with the ability to maintain business oversight and protect both the user and corporate data assets."
