What do you like best?

Never seen an application being light with best performance. Easy to read, understand and implement with a lot of knowledge base documents provided. Different tiers of supports available. EFT with AWE is the best which keeps this application on top of all MFTs Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

ONLY ARM Database, Application is very light. however ARM database takes a lot of time to get purged and reports generation with huge databases causes application to timeout and report generation fails. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

- Meet with the Regional Sales Manager with the requirements

- Schedule multiple meetings to get an idea and understand if it supports your business requirements

- Buy professional services if its a first time implementation of the MFT Software in your organization

- Buy a premier support tier if its a huge organization that deals with huge transactions Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the integrated toolbox within the software. It gives coding the events a feeling that resembles visual studios which is very easy to use. I also like the import/export ability for events. Exporting an event, making a small change, and importing it back into the system makes it easy to clone similar events. They also have an area for connection profiles, which makes the upkeep and use of credentials for multiple events simple. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The one aspect that I do not like is how general some of the errors are. You can see where the job breaks down by having an email send and stop process, however it just tells you which step it breaks down on. I wish the error codes in the logs told you more about the issue that caused it. It can be difficult to see if it is on the local or remote side because of this. Also if the resources on the server get over-utilized, you can get a main loop broken error, which will cause random events to fail and become inactive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for an EFT product, I would highly recommend GlobalScape. The integration into our environment was seamless, and working with the vendor was simple and got done very quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have thousands of files that get moved around everyday and with this program we get auto-generated emails if there is a breakdown. I no longer have to babysit or run my script to see if a file is stuck in transmission. This lets me focus on new events instead of looking to see if something transmitted manually.

What do you like best?

Globalscape is a one-stop-shop for a managed FTP service. It allows the monitoring of folders and custom triggers for transmitting files to a location. File transfers can be scheduled. With the addition of the Advanced Workflow Module, administrators have the additional ability to create complex workflows that connect to cloud resources, modify or concatenate files and examine file data to make decisions on manipulation or transmission. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The features of this particular product can feel a bit dated, particularly when looking for relatively simple functions, the way to achieve them can be mired in extra hoops and bounds to get the right result. AD and LDAP authentication methods are allowed in the base product, but adding SAML is locked behind an additional module that, while useful is very expensive for what most clients would like use out of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have any interest whatsoever with using Active Directory as the authentication method for users or to use as access control, I highly suggest configuring that as your setup the site(s). Adding this integration later is currently impossible without completely rebuilding whatever site would use it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are required by law to transfer any PII or other sensitive data in a secured fashion when transmitting it externally. In compliance with that, we work with our external providers to use secure protocols. Globalscape's EFT platform makes that a breeze. They support industry standard protocols and provide a vast array of ciphers to use for encryption. With the Advanced Security Module, you gain additional access to features like AS2 for transmission acknowledgement, etc.

Something we use that has really been a boon to our users is the Workspace Module. This allows users to send files to external clients securely. It also supports sending files that are much larger than most email services will allow one to send or receive. Additionally, Globalscape provides the ability to integrate workspaces with Microsoft Outlook, so if an organization uses Outlook and Exchange, whenever a client attempts to send a file larger than Exchange will allow, the file will automatically upload into EFT and add a download link to the email.

What do you like best?

To be honest it is very easy to deploy and architecture is so simple to understand that makes it administrator so easy. Also it is so flexible that it can integrate with many of the third party appliations to cover many of the parameters of corporate compliance. In one word "BEST" product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In order to over come vernabilities, we need to disable the weak ciphers but many of the users may not upgrade their client periodically and they keep on using the same weak ciphers and without intimating them we cannot disable the same. So in this case if we can get the report that which user is using cipher for communication would be easy for us to tackle and intimate the user proactively. But this report must very handy and easy to understand i.e. converting hexa decimal from log and get that convert is seriously very rigid work. So I believe, here we need to concentrate.

What do you like best?

EFT ensures secure, efficient transfer of large files in split seconds. The Web Transfer Client provides Users an interface to send, share files and folders with internal and external users of the platform. Ability to encrypt and decrypt files with the openPGP option is magnificient.

The dropoff portal which ensures that files are sent to only inserted email addresses in the administrative Workspace - dropoff "Address Book" is a secured way to ensure files are sent to only assigned list provided by the administrator.

Secure measures to transfer super large files within the organization and externally.

Globalscape Electronic File Transfer is the best platform for file transfer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Globalscape Electronic File Transfer requires intensive support and knowledge base requirements for High Availability installation.

A single mix-up in port (https-ssl, or sftp-ssh) numbers in the EFT solution and gateway connection, will clash sites and render issues in like regards.

Best practice doesn't recommend same value for port numbers on two different site anyway, except for separate IP provisioning and other exceptions which should be quite clear, as an administrator. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

These features are very much useful in our day to day work:

1) Intelligent automation folder monitor or file uploaded

2) Scripting capability by AWE

3) Easily manageable admin console

4) Web access capability for external users

5) Business Activity Monitoring capability is good

6) Mail Express integration is good

7) Workspace module a replacement for Mail Express

8) Verbose logging for AWE which will give more details on the issues

9) Inbuit reports and ability to build customized reports help to know the system activity and performance better Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Few limitations:

1) When we try to download a file from a remote server and if file does not exist, then it should not be called file download failure, there should be some option to mark as success if no file exists.

2) It would be good to have if action succeeded besides if action failed in the event rules.

3) Good to have web admin interface to be able to access outside the servers with full features

4) Ability to configure different URLs for internal and external along with separate SSL cetificates

5) Good to have in built sync tool which is used to get the user history in terms of last connection date and time etc.

6) Good to record time stamps in the logs so we know what happened and when Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The Event Rule visibility and easily undersood workflows. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Having to sign in to the desktop application a lot because of timeouts.

When working with advanced workflows you are not able to look at other things like event rules at the same time.

There is a lot of configuration, but once configured, you don't have to change much. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

File transformations using Advanced Workflows. If we didn't have this capablility we'd end up having to purchase another software to do some of these transformations. Some are very simple transformations where we just need to read through records in a file to find a single charactor. This is a great cost savings in some cases.

End user notifications when files are transferred is very usefull. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

EFT makes file sharing easy, you can log into web client or have the plugin right you mail app to send large files easily. My favorite thing about EFT is options for delivery.

I can set it to expire right after it is open. I require an account for NoN EFT users. It is very secure

The GUI for the software we use EFT Enterprise is simple enough that support of the entire environment can be managed by a limited number of resources, even for our use case which is close to 10,000 users across several different deployments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The way the EFT file system works can leave a little to be desired. It has some good functionality such as the ability to digitally mount other file shares and have them become part of it's file system, but are times we run into an issue with it's ability to apply permissions.

Some build in automated clean up jobs for old files, would also be nice and a feature I have had in other solutions in the past. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

automatize, secure, centralize all data transfers in your organization in an easy intuitive way. EFT has the power to make a lot of different tools go away, theres no longer the need for custom made scripts, several FTP servers or even FTP clients such as FileZilla or WinSCP. EFT does it all Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

EFT's console could introduce some new features involving a better way to migrate to a newer version or more control in the process of creating event rules, applying changes is not as intuitive as it could be since you can't move in the administration console without applying or discharging changes in the current tab you were working on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very simple to set up, even easier to use, WTC is our go to tool now since it eliminated the need of FileZilla, WinSCP and other FTP clients. Exchanging information with other companies is very easy since WTC can be the central hub of transfers with everyone Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EFT made our processes more secure, since there's no human interaction in a lot of data transfers/transformations, as well as it made custom build scripts and batch processes useless since we migrated all automatization to EFT in a fairly simple way. It unified the way we transfer and exchange data with different providers and customers, made it very easy for all parties involved and made it way more secure and professional since sensitive data is no longer traveling through email or insecure protocols.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

installation in cluster environments are still complex. the rules and events could have more basic tools without going to advanced automation. Sometimes the profile for admin users must have a way to configure more different profiles appropriate to the needs of companies. the RAM remote access agent should have more possibilities in the future.the configuration of the WTC look should be easier in terms of logos, colors etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The event driven custom scripting. For example, we have a script that automatically moves each downloaded file to a subfolder '.archive'. With this, automated download scripts don't have to keep track of what files they have downloaded, they can just download whatever is the root user folder. But, manually one can log in and access that archive for previous files. Another use is instead of having a script run on a schedule to look for uploaded files, that script can be called immediately upon upload - don't have to worry about accessing a partially uploaded file, don't have the inelegance of running a script blindly on a schedule. Event driven scripts are great! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Lack of AD integration for admin access. Could handle logging of blocked access due to IP restrictions better, right now it seems invislble. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Globalscape's EFT Server and EFT Arcus are two state-of-the-art MFT platforms in which any organization can manage their file and information exchange in a secure automated way. The way the automated file transfers are built is the best feature of EFT I can think of. Drag and drop functionalities that can help you build any automated workflow in minutes as complex or simple as you need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

EFT Should include auto-save features to Event Rules and keyboard shortcuts such as undo/redo in a way that building these automated workflows, as simple as they are, could be developed in a more user friendly way. The way you delete or modify an Event Rule is not ideal but it gets the job done. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We used to have everything done manually, connecting to a FTP Server manually to drop files to a third-party, building ETLs manually via batch files or scripts and building one FTP Site for each customer/company that wanted to exchange files with us. With EFT Server all of this is in the past, everything is automated and we love how WTC(Web Transfer Client) is now our go-to tool for every file transfer requirement that we have.

What do you like best?

As the site admin the ease in which I can stand up shares and create user accounts is stellar. Cannot be happier with that aspect. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that comes to mind is that it is a bit pricey. The support response could be a bit faster. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Go through a full demo.. get a trial instance to play with and definitely use the workspaces functionality.. total game changer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We needed to move into the secure FTP space and needed to be compliant with HIPAA and PHI policies. Globalscape certianly fit the bill. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

EFT Server Enterprise, along with the AWE component allows us to not only transfer files but to manage these transfers. We write scripts that allow us to do everything our clients would like to have happen to their files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We use the AWE component extensively and I would like more upgrades as cyphers and other security needs are changing faster than the upgrades. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This product is so versitle! It took some work figuring out how to organize things so we can easily tell what is what, but we have done that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Whether transferring to/from vendors, having vendors connect to us or connecting to the cloud, we can encrypt, decrypt, zip, unzip, rename, copy, move, use Excel spreadsheets, update databases, send e-mails and execute scripts written in other languages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
