  • GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (GSB) Bundles New Highly-Intuitive Mobile Capability From TappIn Acquisition Into Secure File Access Platform 0 comments
    Feb 27, 2012 2:00 PM | about stocks: GSB

    Today, GlobalSCAPE®, well-established provider of a host of secure information exchange platforms and SaaS solutions (which first made a name for itself back in 1996 with the popular CuteFTP® product), implemented a new feature for their proven Enhanced File Transfer (NYSE:EFT) Server™ platform that allows easy, secure access to business files from any popular smartphone/mobile device.

    The Secure Mobile Access™ module, combined with EFT Server, represents a powerful incorporation of technology developed by TappIn™, Inc. and acquired by GSB during the 2011 acquisition of the Seattle-based mobile file sharing innovator.

    A solution now exists for businesses/IT departments to easily enable employees to simply use their own mobile device. The implications are obvious and the potential benefits to a business are immediate. Allowing employees to stay connected to the business, accessing and sharing files in a secure environment via their own mobile, is a silver-bullet to problems emerging in the constantly evolving, always-on modern workspace.

    Since just December when the acquisition was completed, GSB has managed to successfully integrate the convenient, mobile file access capabilities of TappIn's technology, with the rock-solid security envelope of the EFT Server. This allows the comprehensive, full-spectrum control for managing user access that administrators have come to love about EFT Server, to be extended rapidly via the initiation of a TappIn account activation by the user. Because the files are not stored in the cloud, there is no upload required before accessing.

    Direct access to infrastructure-resident corporate data in a secure environment from any mobile device, in an intuitive, easy to use, and easy to manage interface: this kind of anytime, anywhere connectivity with advanced, yet convenient management functionality is impressive and there is significant buzz building about GSB's aggressive, pioneering strategy.

    CEO of GSB, Jim Morris, hailed the convenience this powerful integration brings forth as a perfect solution for delivering enterprise-grade secure file transfer. The expertise brought to the table by TappIn has been instrumental in developing the kind of advanced, highly-effective mobile access solution the market demands and Morris was keen to emphasize this advantage to customers.

    A recent report on smartphone adoption shows that although only 17% of American's own a smartphone, small business owners' usage is as high as 49% (Forrester Research). More and more devices are emerging into the category thanks to rapidly changing software/hardware relationships, expanding bandwidth, and secure file access and management solutions like those offered by GSB. As the proliferation of smartphones increases the rate of demand for intuitive, powerful solutions to everyday file access and transfer requirements, the market for precisely such capabilities as today's announcement heralds will continue to grow.

    GSB has over a decade and a half of experience bringing businesses and consumers everything from secure FTP servers and managed hosting services endpoint security to workflow automation.
