GlobalSCAPE, Inc. Increases Security and Automation Capabilities through New Cloud Storage and Remote Office Features
GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE American: GSB), a worldwide leader in the secure movement and integration of data, today announced updates for its Enhanced File TransferTM (EFTTM) platform. EFT version 7.4.5 includes new automation and security features as well as cloud storage support capabilities with the Remote Agent Module and Cloud Connector Module.
EFT’s Remote Agent Module (RAM) allows organizations to perform unattended file transfers between remote locations and corporate headquarters with centralized control. RAM’s capabilities make it easy for organizations to quickly scale and meet business needs in real time. Without a comprehensive tool in place, IT administrators are often required to create custom code or scripts and develop the appropriate business logic to automate transfers. This can be an unsustainable task, given the potential for human error and security vulnerabilities, as well as the time consuming, repetitive nature of creating these functionalities. With RAM, customers are able to:
- Instruct remote agents to process files arriving in a monitored “hot” folder and/or to retrieve or send files to corporate on a schedule
- Remove the need for admins to deploy and update remote automation scripts
- Eliminate the need to deploy insecure, third-party FTP or SFTP clients
- Quickly deploy the RAM package and easily accommodate changing needs of remote offices or branches
The Cloud Connector Module (CCM) offers IT admins a way to securely support data transfers to and from cloud storage or containers like Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure. The CCM has the ability to automatically copy or move files arriving at EFT to cloud storage, set timer rules to download files from cloud storage at specified intervals, and seamlessly integrate with EFT’s post-processing engine. These features provide additional support to organizations looking to move more data into their cloud infrastructure. With the CCM, administrators will be able to:
- Connect natively to Amazon S3 or Azure Blob storage without custom scripting, manual browsing or complexity
- Integrate natively with cloud storage through EFT, without the need for outside integration
Globalscape EFT is an award-winning managed file transfer (MFT) platform that provides organizations with the ability to securely manage and protect their data, comply with strict industry regulations, create complex automated workflows, track enhanced data flows and accelerate the transfer of large files, among other things.
