EFT v. 7.4.2 Is Now Available

With New High Availability, File Sharing and AWS Functionality

This version of EFT has been designed to reinforce support for our customers who use EFT to move their most important files and data. From support for on-premises deployments to those moving to the cloud, we continue to make EFT more powerful and more user friendly.

We’ve made the following additions in EFT v7.4.2: 

•       Enhanced Support for Active-Active High Availability Clustering Deployments –Tier 1 applications requiring complicated HA systems are often time consuming and difficult to maintain. In the latest version of EFT, we’ve implemented features and functionality designed to make the maintenance and operation of these complex and mission-critical systems even easier.

o      Server Drain Functionality -- The new server drain functionality in EFT allows admins to manually “drain” file transfers, which causes EFT to wait until current transfers and event rules are complete before restarting or shutting down, thus decreasing the occurrence of partial file transfers and processes. Setting EFT to automatically drain transfers helps keep all nodes of a cluster in sync.

o      Unicast Transmission -- We’ve added support for unicast transmission to aid communication between cluster nodes along with our current multicast transmission method. Unicast is an alternative for use in situations where multicast is not available.

•       Additional Support for Person-to-Person File Sharing – We’ve continued to enhance support for transactional file sharing in the Workspaces module. This release includes support for a pick-up and a drop-off portal. The drop-off portal provides an easy method for external partners and customers to send large files securely to users within an organization. An enhanced pick-up portal allows users to retrieve files and reply to senders.

•       New Auto-Scaling Capabilities in Amazon Web Services - With support for high availability auto-scaling in AWS, EFT can "scale up" to accommodate bursts of traffic and then scale down once peak traffic has past. This provides organizations with big savings in resources and provides crucial load balancing and disaster resource tools.

Managed File Transfer for the Enterprise

 

EFT™ from Globalscape® is an advanced, powerful managed file transfer (MFT) solution that replaces insecure legacy FTP servers, inflexible and haphazard home-grown file transfer systems, slow physical shipment of data, and expensive leased lines and VANs.

 

Merge or Replace Legacy File Transfer Systems

 

Managing multiple systems costs a lot of time and money. EFT is a full-service MFT solution that replaces inefficient, outdated, and insecure file transfer and data management systems. EFT provides secure file sharing and mobile access solutions to give flexibility to employees, customers, and partners—and gives you control of data security.

 

 

Track File Movement from Beginning to End

 

Enterprise data management is not just about security. By understanding how data moves around in your organization, you can identify issues with your file transfer processes and make your business more efficient. Our Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) is designed to give you unparalleled visibility across every aspect of managed file transfer, with a real-time status viewer and a reporting module that combines granular detail with remarkable ease of use.

 

 

Scale Your Managed File Transfer Solution as Your Business Grows

 

Adapt to increasing business demands with a scalable managed file transfer solution. From small businesses to large corporations, there is an Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) configuration perfect for you. EFT has basic capabilities perfect for the small business owner who needs enterprise file transfer software, and, for the large enterprise, EFT has military-grade security along with amazing load capacity and high availability. No matter which version you start with, you can customize your solution with our modules to provide protection for PCI DSS, process files thorough antivirus and data loss prevention tools, auditing and reporting, and more.

 

 

 

 

Automate Workflows and Integrate Systems

 

With file transfer software at the center of so many business-critical processes, security is only the first aspect of a much greater IT concern. When information consumers in your organization rely on manual and intermittent batch processes to deliver the data they need, day-to-day productivity becomes dangerously vulnerable to manpower limitations, vacations, turn-over, and simple human error. Globalscape’s secure file transfer solutions offer workflow management capabilities that ease the burden on your team, enabling IT to focus on high priority initiatives rather than daily maintenance.

 

 

Meet Compliance Mandates for Managed File Transfer Systems

 

Our Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) software ensures the highest levels of compliance with government and corporate security policies and privacy regulations, such as PCI DSS, FIPS-140-2, HIPAA, and SOX. Globalscape’s flexible platform allows you to customize an MFT solution with modules that meet your specific requirements. Whether your business is obligated to comply or you simply desire the utmost in security standards, EFT can help you secure data transfers, access, and storage.

 

 

Secure Your File Transfers

 

 

 

Our Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) software enables your organization to securely manage file transfers among worldwide offices, clients, and partners using industry-standard Internet protocols such as HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, SFTP, and AS2. EFT is the managed file transfer solution used and trusted by the U.S. Army, Fortune 100 companies, and small to large businesses around the world. With the EFT modular structure, you purchase just the functionality you need, making secure file transfer scalable and affordable.

 

 

Securely Access Your Data on any Device Without the Cloud

 

You don’t have to be forced to use a cloud-based file storage solution. Our MFT software lets businesses retain control over their information while giving employees and partners the flexibility to access the information they need, when and where they need it. Businesses benefit from having a centralized location for secure file access on EFT, without needing to upload/sync files with cloud servers or pay for additional cloud storage.

 

 

Compare Editions

 

EFT is offered in six different bundles or "tiers," as described below. The tiers are organized to meet the needs of small, medium, and enterprise businesses. You are not locked in to these specific groupings. For example, if SMB Tier 2 would meet all of your needs, but you also need a secure proxy server in the DMZ, you can add DMZ Gateway. Anything marked "Optional" in the table is available to add to your bundle.
