SFT Rights Management

What happens to files after they’re shared via Globalscape? Is PGP encryption enough for your organization’s most critical assets? Do you need to take a Zero Trust approach to file protection?

Fortra’s SFT Rights Management bundle gives organizations more control and protection over sensitive data. This bundle combines the power of Globalscape EFT  with Vera Digital Rights Management to encrypt sensitive or large assets, protect them once they’re shared, and allow for instant revocation and control to ensure only authorized individuals can access files at all times.


How Does SFT Rights Management Improve File Security?

Anchor ID:


While some files can be shared with little to no concern for security, assets like intellectual property (IP), trade secrets, or sensitive financial information often needs additional protection. Rather than risk these assets being exposed to people who shouldn’t see them, lock them down and ensure they stay in the right hands with SFT Rights Management.

Protect Sensitive Files at All Costs

Every organization has assets that must be protected at all costs, while needing to be shared securely with individuals who need access to them. With SFT Rights Management, you can protect these critical files while specifying exactly who is authorized to view, use, and change them. Going beyond traditional file-level encryption, Vera applies encryption and rights management to each file handled by Globalscape EFT, so wherever files travel, they are protected and shared only with the right recipients.

Automatically Protect Files

Files transferred as part of Globalscape’s automated workflows can be automatically protected by Vera. Whether files are passing through MFT, being uploaded to a shared folder, or sent via email, you can choose to apply Vera protection. By applying protection as part of the workflow, you can ensure company security policies are followed – as well as broader compliance or regulatory requirements.

Decide Who Can Access Files

If files should only be accessed by recipients with a specific email domain or within a certain location, you can set those rights on your most critical assets. When outbound files reach their destination, only recipients who meet the criteria you set will be able to access them.
