Throughout that time, the firmhas remained committed to its core competencies and its customer base. Earlier this year, Globalscape was recognized in CV’s 2019 Corporate Excellence Awards as the Best Enterprise File Transfer Solutions Provider – 2019. Following the win, we profiled the firmand caught up with Chairman of the Board and CEO, Robert Alpert, who kindly provided us with a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the inner workings of the innovative company. Commitment to the Core Since its inception in 1996, Globalscape has established a trusted brand and has amassed the expertise to provide clients with some of the top-performing managed file transfer (MFT) software in the industry. MFT is middleware which is fundamental to the secure trans- fer of data and a critical part of IT operations. Globalscape provides MFT software and services through its core Enhanced File Transfer (EFT) platform and its flagship EFT products. The firm’s 20+ year longevity testifies to its ability to evolve with changing business needs without losing sight of its core competen- cies. Globalscape has earned the loyalty and trust of its valued cus- tomers by consistently delivering on its mission: To help clients solve their digital business challenges by managing, streamlining, and auto- mating the secure and compliant flow of data. “We fulfil our mission by operating as a customer-centric organiza- tion that continuously evolves our products to meet our customers’ ever-changing needs. This means keeping an acute focus on our core competencies and how they can grow to serve our customers better,” said Robert Alpert, Globalscape’s Chairman of the Board and CEO. Over the years, Globalscape has accumulated clients in a vast range of industries such as financial services, healthcare, technology, and pharmaceuticals, among others. Customers trust EFT with the secure transfer of confidential, business-critical data, including medical records, financial data, proprietary technology, point of sale data, customer and vendor data- bases, and confidential legal files. Globalscape proudly serves many global industry leaders, including 25% of the organizations listed on the Fortune 100 list. “It’s not just about routing data from point A to point B. It’s about safe- guarding and effectively managing highly confidential data every step of the way,” said Alpert. “Our cus- tomers have placed immense trust in EFT and that is not lost on us.” Globalscape’s EFT uniquely serves clients by providing powerful, stable, and sustainable technology that is also user friendly and easily implemented. EFT’s out-of-the-box functionality al- lows clients to complete implemen- tation quickly and easily, rather than waiting a year or more to integrate technology. EFT also secures data at all stages (in transit and at rest), while enabling oversight and man- agement throughout all processes. While managed file transfer software is not a new technology, more and more companies are learning that it is invaluable. Today, heightened security concerns and increased data regulation are driv- ing a rise in demand for high-per- formance MFT platforms, which is where Globalscape excels. As pioneers in the MFT space, the Globalscape team works tirelessly to stay well-versed in emerging developments. Alpert explains “Our Product teams stay abreast of the latest trends in the MFT space, but more importantly we are plugged into the needs of our customer base. For example, we stay well informed about changes in regula- tory requirements, including HIPAA, PCI, SOX, and GDPR. This helps us provide our customers with the technology they need to effectively manage their data transfers and maintain compliance. Our EFT plat- form also includes crucial oversight and reporting functions as well as vital automation, collaboration, and security features.” “Additionally, we respond to our customers’ ever-evolving needs when it comes to digital transfor- mation and technological advance- ment. EFT Arcus, our cloud-based MFT, was designed to meet the needs of our customers who are continuing to migrate to the cloud. Because we know our customer base, and understand that many of them need a combination of solutions, we offer different de- ployments, including on-premises, hybrid, and cloud.” Globalscape’s experienced, hard-working and committed team is the backbone of the organiza- tion, working tirelessly behind the To Ensure Customer Satisfaction and EFT Optimization, the Glo- balscape team offers: • Thorough pre-sale consultation and documentation • Proof of concept(s) • Free trial • Implementation, deployment, and development assistance services • Paid feature development program, Accelerated Develop- ment, available for further customization • Comprehensive professional training services
