GlobalSCAPE, Inc. Releases New Security Features and File Sharing Capabilities for Its Data Exchange Platform
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) Enterprise version 7.3.3. The latest version of the information exchange platform provides new and enhanced features, including the Advanced Authentication Module (AAM) and the Workspaces Outlook® plugin.
The authentication methods in AAM improve productivity while protecting valuable data as it moves inside or outside of an organization’s four walls. Especially for organizations that have workers with a varying degree of usernames and passwords to access different corporate systems, authentication standards and methods have evolved to avoid the potential of weak passwords and network vulnerabilities.
With AAM, administrators and users can provide a single source of authentication across the enterprise with new and enhanced features such as:
· Support for single sign-on authentication: users have the ability to sign in once with Web Single Sign-On (SSO) through Security Assertion Mark-Up Language (SAML) and have their credentials saved for future site, application, or resource logins
· Enhanced secure remote, multifactor authentication: administrators can provide their remote or mobile workforce with easy methods to authenticate their credentials securely with Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS), RSA SecureID®, or CensorNet MFA (formerly known as SMS PASSCODE)
· Upgraded support for smart card verification: the latest version of EFT provides broader support for personal identity verification for the Common Access Card (CAC), which allows authentication with a smart card, typically used by Department of Defense military and civilian personnel
· Maintains centralized password security on managed file transfer environment with the ability to quickly commission and decommission user provisions from one location
In addition to AAM, EFT 7.3.3 includes the Workspaces Outlook plugin. The plugin brings together technology and features available in Globalscape Mail Express® with the collaborative functionality of Workspaces, integrating directly into EFT Enterprise. Users will be able to perform secure ad hoc file transfers through email, receive a receipt confirming pick up of the file, set pick up expirations, and maintain control over sensitive data.
By integrating the features of Globalscape’s standalone Mail Express product into its EFT platform, the company is taking the first steps toward a larger mission to make it easier for EFT users to access features from the larger portfolio of standalone products.
Peter Merkulov, Vice President of Product Strategy and Technology Alliances at Globalscape
"Broad support for popular security standards, integrated tightly across all enterprise platforms, makes it easy for users to maintain the integrity of an organization’s high-value data. Our Advanced Authentication Module for EFT Enterprise protects an organization’s sensitive information by supporting a number of well-known authentication standards without placing additional burdens on the user or administrators as they transfer or receive data. And by releasing the Workspaces Outlook plugin, we are taking a significant step towards providing our core users with easy-to-use, integrated functionality to send secure ad hoc file transfers and better control their organization’s sensitive or proprietary data. The latest version of EFT is evolving into a powerful platform that will be essential in the fight to secure and protect sensitive data.”
