EFT version 7.4.2 includes expanded support for High Availability capabilities, enhanced Workspaces features, and several other key improvements.

The High Availability capability for EFT Enterprise is an active-active failover cluster that protects vital business processes and provides the availability of critical applications during both planned and unplanned outages. With the latest EFT High Availability updates, customers can:

  • Improve maintenance and upgrade experience for administrators with updated controls to manage server drain, maintenance and auto-restart functions.

Workspaces, Globalscape’s file sharing module, provides system admins with transparency and control over sensitive data. It also provides end users and partners with an easy, reliable portal to access and share information vital to their day-to-day roles. The latest update to Workspaces includes:

  • New drop-off and reply portals to ensure that third parties can share large files via the platform with enhanced security and reliability; and,
  • New "Guest" node to manage invited guests' accounts separately from EFT user accounts.

Other enhancements offered in EFT v7.4.2 include:

  • Enhanced Web Transfer Client user access to improve user experience; and,
  • Improved SFTP security setting configuration to enable more visibility into security settings and help administrators ensure compliance.
