Globalscape Gives Business Users Secure and Convenient Mobile File Access

globalscape_logoGlobalscape, Inc., introduced a new capability today that enables users to securely access their business files from any popular smartphone or mobile device. The new capability, Secure Mobile Access™ module, combines TappIn’s mobile file access with Globalscape’s proven solution, Enhanced File Transfer (EFT) Server™, and allows businesses and IT departments to control the rapidly growing “Bring Your Own Device” trend.

tappin_globalscapeThe Secure Mobile Access module represents the first significant product integration with mobile file sharing innovator TappIn, Inc. since it was acquired by Globalscape last December. In just two months following the acquisition, Globalscape completed development to combine the convenience of TappIn’s mobile file access with the strong security measures of EFT Server.

In EFT Server, administrators have a variety of options for managing and controlling user access. With the Secure Mobile Access module, users can access files inside folders, including read-only access for specific users, with the easy-to-use TappIn interface after activating a TappIn account on their mobile device. Because the files are being accessed directly from the source, such as an office computer, and are not stored in the cloud, there is no uploading required before accessing the files.

“In today’s always-on environment, businesses know that employees need and are finding ways to access work files from mobile devices. Globalscape’s Secure Mobile Access module delivers the convenient access that business users demand with Globalscape’s enterprise-grade secure file transfer solution, EFT Server,” says Globalscape CEO Jim Morris. “TappIn’s expertise gives us a significant advantage in developing an advanced, effective mobile access solution, and we’re pleased to now offer these enhanced capabilities to our business customers.”
