Due to the rise of cyberthreats and data breaches, government agencies and the public sector are under increasing scrutiny, making security the number one priority when exchanging and managing data. GlobalSCAPE, Inc.

Security is one of the most important technology features for government agencies and the public sector. Globalscape solutions are compliant with government and public sector standards and certifications like Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS 140-2), U.S. Army Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) and Common Access Card (CAC) authentication.
