Secure data transfer has never been more important for organisations’ reputation and performance. Added to the continual need to protect against cyber-attacks, there’s the new EU data protection law, GDPR, to comply with.

This user event focusses on the information security and data protection capabilities of EFT. You’ll learn from expert speakers from Globalscape and technical consultants at Pro2col, who deliver UK professional services and support for Globalscape.

In the morning sessions the Globalscape team from the U.S will take you through the latest features and roadmap. This will include a preview of the new cloud EFT server and SaaS offering, EFT Arcus. You’ll get to grips with what GDPR means in terms of file transfer, and see how EFT can support compliance. In the afternoon you’ll hear from EFT users from a range of industries with exemplary use-cases. They’ll explain how they are successfully using EFT Server, whilst the technical consultants demonstrate how you can too.

You’ll be eligible for discounts on EFT Server modules and upgrades which aid GDPR, as well as free CFTP training. Limited availability on a strictly first come first served basis.
