Globalscape have announced the release of Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™) version 7.3, with the availability of their new Accelerate Module, designed to provide extreme file transfers which increase the speed, efficiency and reliability of data movement.

Two use cases are supported: a client to server configuration using scClient™ and a server to server configuration between two EFT servers.

Benefits of the EFT Accelerate module include:

  • Globalscape AccelerateImproved Transfer Speed: Accelerate increases file transfer speeds up to 5-10 times faster than FTP and up to 20 times faster than SFTP over high-latency networks, particularly for large files.
  • Efficient Bandwidth Utilisation: Allows to use all of the bandwidth that you pay for, all of the time.
  • Mobility: Transfer files from remote locations using scClient. scClient is purpose-built for accelerated transfers, easily downloadable from a web browser, and can be pre-configured for ease-of-use for end users.
  • Reduces Costs/Saves Money: Reduces time and costs associated with shipping/delivering hardcopies of data.

How Fast?

With the Accelerate module, sending and receiving files to and from any location around the world can be done reliably and quickly. The chart below compares the difference between file transfer with FTP and fast file transfer with the Accelerate module.


The FAST Protocol

The Accelerate Module enables high-speed transfers over high-latency networks over UDP using FAST, a patented technology. EFT Accelerate module increases speeds for server-to-server and client-to-server data transfer, especially for long-distance transfers. Unlike TCP, the Accelerate module makes full use of the available bandwidth at all speeds, which decreases the total transfer time, as shown in the chart below. The FAST protocol allows your data to arrive reliably by using a proprietary flow-control and error-correction algorithms.

PM“The shape, size and amount of data being collected, managed and received today is increasingly putting strain on IT infrastructure and business processes, yet the demand for data is growing exponentially. With workforces becoming more remote and global collaboration being easier than ever, it’s incredibly important to ensure that data moves quickly and efficiently. Any delay or disruption of data transfers can create serious repercussions for a business.

EFT Enterprise with the Accelerate module is an ultra-fast, reliable way to transfer large amounts of data, providing companies with the security, control and compliance features so desperately needed to mitigate risk and prevent delays.”
