Globalscape UK & Ireland User Group 2021

Hosted by UK Master Partner and Number 1 International Partner

The popular Globalscape UK & Ireland User Group is back for 2021 on Wednesday 28th April. It’s a unique opportunity to share best practice with other users, and talk directly to the Globalscape product team.

This free event will be hosted online this year, so we’ve maximised opportunities for networking and interaction. It will be the same supportive environment where you can ask anything about EFT Server.

There will be presentations on cloud migration, automation and data protection, plus, now we are a Gartner business partner, we’ll share exclusive insights on the MFT marketplace and how businesses like yours are tackling current challenges.

All levels of expertise are welcome. You’ll learn new ways to get more from your EFT solution, and share any requirements to the Globalscape product team.

We have a host of giveaways to help with your file transfer infrastructure (and give you lunch)! These include:

  • A £20 Deliveroo voucher if you’re live on the morning
  • Certified File Transfer Professional Training (CFTP) worth £250 for Q&A participants
  • Discounts on professional services
  • And your free one-to-one technical session with an EFT expert

*Your event confirmation will arrive by email – please check your promotional folders to make sure you don’t miss it
