GlobalSCAPE Unveils Enhanced File Transfer™ 2020 Platform

EFT 2020 delivers game changing data compliance controls and cloud migration tools

SAN ANTONIO – JANUARY 15, 2020 GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE American: GSB) a worldwide leader in the secure movement and integration of data, today announced the launch of its Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT) 2020 platform. EFT 2020 is the eighth generation of GlobalSCAPE’s managed file transfer platform and the most robust version ever developed. The new platform:

  • Simplifies the challenge of ever-evolving compliance requirements 

  • Eases the process of migrating data to the cloud

  • Supplies much-needed controls for GDPR, PIPEDA and CCPA regulations

  • Provides unmatched simplicity and performance for global enterprises 

EFT 2020 arms enterprises with industry-leading controls needed to meet stringent regulations, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). 

“GDPR, PIPEDA and CCPA are only the beginning of potential compliance and privacy headaches for enterprises,” said Roberto Garcia, Vice President of Product Strategy and Engineering at GlobalSCAPE. “EFT 2020 delivers unmatched levels of simplicity and efficiency while addressing these fast-growing data-centric regulatory demands. Superbly positioned to support data migrations to the cloud through its hybrid and 100% cloud-based options, EFT 2020 improves product performance, streamlines an FTP network’s architecture, enhances user experience, and offers a smoother integration with existing platforms.” 

EFT 2020 has a full set of advanced compliance-related features, including user rights exercise controls, fine-grained compliance controls, and a built-in GDPR-Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) report – all new industry offerings. Additional product updates include collaboration enhancements, revamped web transfer client (WTC) capabilities, powerful automation options, and improved auditing performance for high-volume customers. 

“The forward-facing, user-focused simplicity of the platform makes following increasingly layered data compliance and privacy expectations automatic and clearer,” Garcia added. “The collaborative, automated and performance-driven features of EFT 2020 create a rich user experience with simple-to-use functionality. Serving more than 100 of the Fortune 500, GlobalSCAPE is committed to continual innovation to help solve our global customers’ enterprise-wide compliance challenges.”

The newest EFT 2020 automation feature includes first-time integration with Microsoft Window’s PowerShell, a well understood and flexible programmatic framework built into the Windows operating system. This feature comes in response to the increased pressure on IT administrators when required to meet constantly changing, increasingly complex and time-sensitive business workflows. The result is even more flexibility when seeking to maximize efficiency in a compliant manner.

Additionally, when seeking to streamline collaborative workflows, the latest P2P additions within the platform include separate link and file expirations and passcode-protected pickups which help comply with retention and security policies. These additions help remedy the conundrum employees face when sharing files on a frequent basis while having to collaborate securely.
