GlobalSCAPE, Inc. Releases Accelerate Module for EFT Enterprise Boosting Speed, Efficiency of Secure Data Transfers

Patented Technology Enables Accelerated File Transfer to Move Data up to 20 times Faster than SFTP

GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSB), a pioneer and worldwide leader in the secure and reliable exchange of business information, announces the immediate availability of Enhanced File TransferTM (EFTTM) version 7.3 with the Accelerate module. The Accelerate module is designed to provide extreme file transfers which increase the speed, efficiency and reliability of data movement.

From delivering large medical images between offices and hospitals, to creating and collaborating on a new video or a computer game between artists and programmers, or quickly delivering large seismographic data files from remote locations to an oil and gas company headquarters for analysis – extreme file transfers are a necessity for many organizations. Delays or latency in moving data can create serious challenges for a business and the size of data being moved is only increasing, causing additional strain on bandwidth. EFT Enterprise with the Accelerate module provides companies with the ability to:

  • Transfer files five to ten times faster than on FTP, and more than 20 times faster than over SFTP
  • Overcome latency and securely move data between geographically dispersed servers or locations
  • Prevent delays and eliminate costly bottlenecks in the delivery of important files
  • Obtain better value from expenses on Internet connectivity – in some cases, replacing costly leased lines or private networks

How EFT with the Accelerate Module Works

Behind the Accelerate module for EFT Enterprise is the FAST protocol, which helps achieve the unprecedented increase in the speed of data transfers for extremely large files. The FAST protocol can reduce typical transfer delays caused by large file bottlenecks, geographic distances, round trip time and packet loss associated with standard file exchanges.

The Accelerate module also works in conjunction with scClientTM, a preconfigured client application, which enables an individual user to send files at an accelerated rate, even when in remote areas or offsite locations. EFT Enterprise with the Accelerate module is sold as a perpetual license, saving Globalscape customers added costs associated with service subscriptions.

EFT Enterprise with the Accelerate module offers Globalscape's signature data security and regulatory compliance capabilities, including comprehensive visibility, governance and auditability with a single point of management from within an organization's file transfer infrastructure.

Any delay or disruption of data transfers can create serious repercussions for a business. EFT Enterprise with the Accelerate module is an ultra-fast, reliable way to transfer large amounts of data, providing companies with the security, control and compliance features so desperately needed to mitigate risk and prevent delays.”
