Enhanced File Transfer (EFT)

Globalscape Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) is a powerful managed file transfer platform that enables your organisation to securely manage file transfers among worldwide offices, clients, and partners. EFT ensures the highest levels of compliance with government and corporate security policies and privacy regulations, including PCI-DSS, FIPS-140-2, HIPAA, and SOX. Globalscape’s flexible platform allows you to customise a solution with modules and professional services that meet your specific requirements.

  • A Scalable Platform

    EFT Server comes in two editions: SMB and Enterprise.
    The Enterprise Edition is a much better fit for organisations that need robust automation, to comply with regulations and policies, or other advanced MFT capabilities.  It includes some of the modules that can be added to EFT SMB such as the SFTP Module and HTTPS Module – plus, there are a selection of
    advanced modules that can be added if you require more functionality as your business grows.

  • DMZ Gateway provides Additional Security

    The DMZ Gateway does not store or process any files (not a store and forward technology). It sits outside the firewall while EFT is within the firewall. DMZ Gateway is a middleman to your internal network. Your data remains secure because it’s always processed and stored within EFT – behind the firewall. This is especially helpful for those companies who need to remain PCI compliant or deal with highly sensitive data.

  • High Availability, Active-Active Clustering 

    EFT’s active-active deployment provides high availability using two or more EFTs and a load balancer for non-stop availability of the network. Unlike active-passive failover clusters, all of the nodes in the active-active deployment are put to work in production without any standby hardware or clustering software.

  • Two-Factor Authentication with SMS PASSCODE

    Together EFT and SMS PASSCODE offer a balance between strong security and high user convenience. EFT can be configured to connect to SMS PASSCODE to deliver a one-time use passcode via text message (SMS), voice call, email or a mobile app as part of the login process for HTTP, HTTPS or SFTP transfers. Codes are generated in real time when the user enters a correct username and password, and the codes are locked to the session ID of the device for added security. Following the successful entry of the SMS code, the user has full access to their files and folders.
