A wrap-up of Globalscape's

UK & Ireland user group 2021

Welcoming Industry Experts in MFT

Key speakers included James Lewis, founder and Managing Director of Pro2col; Ailsa Gibbs, Pro2col MFT Consultant with over 10 years of industry experience; and Richard Auger, Senior Technical Analyst (Pro2col) whose MFT career spans over 20 years.

Rounding off the industry experts were Helpsystems’ MFT Managing Director Brian Pick, Nick Hogg Director of Technical Training and Robert Oslin Principal Product Manager.


The event provided a platform for current and future users to interact and learn the latest trends surrounding managed file transfer.

Each topic was carefully chosen with the audience in mind, and questions were encouraged throughout the sessions. The agenda for this year covered:

  1. An overview of the MFT marketplace (James Lewis)
  2. Globalscape EFT- A Helpsystems company (Ailsa Gibbs & Brian Pick )
  3. Automation in EFT: Event Rules Evolution (Richard Auger)
  4. Cloud Migration (Ailsa Gibbs)
  5. Agents (Richard Auger)
  6. Data Protection: Understand, govern, protect (Nick Hogg)
  7. EFT Roadmap (Robert Oslin)
  8. Legacy and emerging technology (Robert, Richard and Ailsa)
  9. Live Q&A
  10. Tech sessions one-to-one sessions

Key findings:

MFT is fast becoming an integral part in many organisation’s infrastructure. Accelerated by the increase in remote working, organisations are in need of a solution to manage the transfer of their data securely. Both internally and to third parties.

Representatives from Helpsystems took delegates through the future strategic direction of Globalscape and how it translates with other EFT products to form a complete data security infrastructure.

As the transfer of files for business use is essential, it’s about finding the right solution that fits with your business needs.

It was a great event. I learnt a lot from Robert, and I made valuable networks. Thanks to Pro2col
