Globalscape EFT™ Licensable Modules


Globalscape EFT is a customizable managed file transfer platform trusted by thousands of businesses worldwide for its unmatched simplicity and military-grade security.

Globalscape EFT requires a per server-instance license. There are no limitations on the amount of connections, bandwidth, or CPU utilization for the product. Unlimited client licenses are included, and access to all modular features are available during the 30-day trial.


Regulatory Compliance Module (RCM) - Helps achieve or exceed security practices mandated by government and industry standards such as GDPR, CCPA, PCI DSS, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and others for data transfer, access, and storage. RCM protects data in transit by enforcing the use of secure protocols, strong ciphers, encryption keys, and maintaining strict password policies.

Advanced Authentication Modes Module (AAAM) - Enables organizations to centralize their user access controls, improve productivity, increase adherence to security policies, and provides administrators with the ability to easily maintain password security in one location to quickly commission and decommission user provisions. AAM provides SAML (WebSSO), RSA® SecurID®, RADIUS, and CAC support.

DMZ Gateway® - A multi-platform solution that works in conjunction with Globalscape 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 Globalscape EFT, the DMZ Gateway acts as a communication proxy that replaces inherently insecure inbound connections from the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) to your network.


Timer Event Module (TEM) - Allows you to execute a specified Action (e.g., generate and send a report) only one time or to repeat at specified intervals. The flexibility of scheduled Timer Events allows EFT administrators to configure event rules to run at any given recurrence without having to continuously run the event rule(s) manually.

Folder Monitor Module (FMM) - Detects the creation, deletion, and renaming of files in a monitored folder, and to perform Actions based on these triggers.

Advanced Workflow Engine Module (AWE) - Automates your complex business processes, including integrating with backend systems, when added to Event Rules

Secure Forms Module (SFM) (Upload Forms) – Allows EFT administrators to create custom web forms that can be used to capture metadata during file uploads when using the web client. Metadata gathered by the upload form can be used in downstream event rules for conditional post processing.

Enterprise Actions Module (EAM) – Allows Globalscape EFT administrators to configure and run Event Rules such as REST invocation and subroutines. Additionally, EAM allows event rule actions such as compression, running custom commands or PowerShell scripts, file/folder operations, datasets loops (including CSV export/import) and invoke web services from a URL.

File Transfer Client (FTC) - Allows EFT administrators to configure upload, download and synchronize actions within Event Rules. These actions allow contents to be uploaded or downloaded from remote servers or synchronize data across servers. OpenPGP Module (PGP) - Encrypt/decrypt your “data at rest” on a server using OpenPGP data encryption technology.

Remote Agent Module (RAM) – Provides centralized control for automating transactions from distributed systems. RAM enables automatic interactions between branch offices, point-of-sale terminals, business partners, field agent laptops, or other remote systems and your EFT server in a central location.

Cloud Connector Module (CCM) – Provides a seamless process to move data to the cloud. With CCM, you can quickly connect to Amazon Web Services or Azure storage moving data from on-premises to the cloud or from EFT in the cloud to a separate instance of cloud storage


AS2 - Facilitates the ability to exchange AS2 EDI messages and other types of data over the HTTP or HTTPS protocol.

SFTP - Enables the SFTP protocol, which allows authentication and transfer data with secure FTP clients, such as CuteFTP. This is the server side of the SFTP transfer.

FTPS - Enables SSL to work with FTP for FTPs file transfers. This is the server side of the FTPS transfer.

HTTP/HTTPS - Enables the HTTP and HTTPS protocols in EFT, allowing you to support browser-based transfers without having to install a web server


Auditing and Reporting (ARM) Module - Captures all of the transactions passing through Globalscape EFT and then allows you to query the data and view auditing reports from the administrative console.

Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) Module - Provides real-time activity monitoring into key performance indicators such as successful/failed transfers, transaction trends, statistics, and Globalscape EFT logs. Admins can also track corporate file transfers, review statistics, and query reports with this tool.

BAM Self Service Portal (SSP) - Provides trading partners with instant, on-demand access to file transfer status information (requires BAM module).


Workspaces* - Allows employees to easily and securely exchange folders and their files with internal and external users, without sacrificing the highest levels of control, visibility, and governance. Workspaces is licensed per user. Workspaces includes an Outlook Add-In which allows you to send files from Microsoft Outlook for pickup via a secure link. The EFT Outlook Add-In provides a secure message delivery option and supports Microsoft Outlook Digital Signature and Microsoft Outlook Encryption.

* Supports two-factor authentication by email or text
