Globalscape Adds Robust Support for Cloud Connectivity and New Automation Capabilities in Latest EFT Enterprise 7.4.7 Release

Designed to Boost Data Security and Empower Users with Additional Tools to Accelerate Cloud Migration

San Antonio, May 15, 2018—GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE American: GSB) (“GlobalSCAPE” or the “Company”), a worldwide leader in the secure movement and integration of data, today announced the newest version of its managed file transfer product, EFT™ Enterprise 7.4.7. This release introduces new functionality for the automation of workflows for cloud-based products and services, designed to empower users with additional tools to accelerate their migration to the cloud.

Award-winning Globalscape EFT allows organizations of any size to safely share information between people and places, inside and outside of the organization. Built-in regulatory compliance, governance and visibility controls keep data secure—in transit and at rest. Globalscape EFT is superior to insecure legacy systems, homegrown servers, and expensive leased lines, and provides organizations with a high performance, easy-to-administer, scalable alternative that secures your critical business data.

“Globalscape continues to enhance our MFT platform to support organizations as they execute their cloud strategy,” said Peter Merkulov, Chief Technology Officer. “The enhancements in EFT 7.4.7 give users additional tools to further streamline their business processes, reduce operational costs, dramatically increase efficiencies in data transfers and integration, increase confidence in, and boost security of their critical business data—on premises or in the cloud.”

With EFT 7.4.7, Globalscape adds new functionality that provides easy automation of workflows with cloud-based systems, including:

Advanced Workflow Engine (AWE)

The enhancements to the Advanced Workflow Engine (AWE) allow organizations of any size, anywhere in the world, to create sophisticated workflows for smooth integration with existing and new systems, and provides the following benefits:

  • Minimize custom scripting | Build and execute AWE workflows entirely within the user-friendly GUI. In combination with Event Rules, AWE allows users to fully automate IT processes—without writing a single line of code.
  • Stability and reliability to run an enterprise | Tight integration between AWE and EFT allows users to develop highly responsive and scalable processes critical to business continuity—offering a seamless experience without external dependencies.
  • Increase team efficiency and productivity | Automate repetitive tasks and processes—freeing users to focus on critical initiatives.

Adding to the already robust functionality of the Advanced Workflow Engine (AWE), is support for over 480 different actions to popular applications and services including:

  • Amazon EC2
  • Amazon RDS
  • Amazon S3 Storage
  • Amazon SES
  • Azure Blob
  • SharePoint/Office365 support

EFT Event Rules with Cloud Folder Monitoring

The functionality of EFT Event Rules has been updated to include folder monitoring capabilities for cloud storage, and now monitors folders in AWS S3 buckets or Azure blobs when adding, removing or renaming files.

EFT Event Rules give IT quick and easy connectivity to Amazon Web Services or Azure storage, and allows users to seamlessly move data from on-premises to the cloud, or from EFT in the cloud, to a separate instance of cloud storage—all without scripting, manual browsing or complex setup procedures.

Additional enhancements have been made to the following EFT features:

  • DMZ Gateway® is a multi-platform solution that works in conjunction with EFT to create a multi-layered DMZ security solution for data storage and retrieval, authentication and firewall traversal. Using a two-way connection originating inside EFT, the DMZ Gateway acts as a communication proxy that replaces inherently insecure inbound connections from the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) to your network.
  • EFT Workspaces Module makes sharing files and folders between internal and external users easy and secure. IT administrators have the benefit of retaining full control and visibility over their data transfer infrastructure, ensuring that they maintain the highest levels of security and regulatory compliance.
  • EFT Insight Module is a simple to use data transfer reporting and monitoring technology for your EFT platform, offering server health monitoring and enterprise-grade business intelligence. With EFT Insight you have full-spectrum visibility into your organization’s data flows and critical transfers, backed by the security included in all Globalscape products.
