GlobalSCAPE, Inc. Launches EFT Arcus: A Next Generation Cloud-Based Managed File Transfer Platform
As organizations increasingly undergo digital business transformation, the silos that create complexity among people, processes and data are starting to erode. In order to make business flow brilliantly, GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE American: GSB), a worldwide leader in the secure movement and integration of data, today announced the release of Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) Arcus. EFT Arcus is a new cloud-based managed file transfer (MFT) platform that allows business partners, customers and employees to exchange data securely, reliably and efficiently.
EFT Arcus (MFTaaS), the new MFT as a service offering, joins Globalscape’s existing suite of cloud and on-premises solutions that helps customers securely move their data. With the new, simple-to-use EFT Arcus platform, organizations can streamline their business processes in the cloud and reduce operational costs. The scalable EFT Arcus platform provides advanced automation capabilities and real-time visibility into data transfers. It also offers consumption-based-pricing, providing users with the flexibility to quickly adapt to changing business and workload requirements.
According to a recent Gartner report, “through 2020, more than 60 percent of midsize and large organizations will deploy MFT technology to support a growing number of digital business use cases.” (1) Most of those businesses considering or planning on deploying MFT technology will likely want to consider their options in the cloud, not just for their on-premises networks. Operating in the cloud has become an imperative aspect of today’s business landscape that offers significant new efficiencies and advantages, but also a variety of risks and compliance-related concerns. The highly secure EFT Arcus platform gives organizations confidence and peace of mind when moving their data. It tracks data in transit or at rest in the cloud, enforces policies to ensure compliance, and simplifies platform management.
EFT Arcus has a number of benefits and features to offer, some of which include:
- Scalability – The platform automatically scales up or down to accommodate workloads
- Security – EFT Arcus delivers a very high level of customer isolation and data encryption at rest or in transit
- High Availability and Disaster Recovery – Rely on a 99.9+ percent uptime while customer data is stored within geo-redundant storage
- Compliance – The facility is compliant with standards such as PCI DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, EU-US Privacy Shield, GDPR, CDSA, CSA STAR, ISO27001:2005, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, ISO 22301, SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3
- Multi-Region Support – The EFT Arcus platform is available in all major regions to help address data residency concerns
Globalscape offers EFT Arcus alongside its award-winning, on-premises managed file transfer platform, EFT, and integration platform as a service (iPaaS) solution, Kenetix, which integrates all of an organization’s cloud-based applications and data.
