Sunkanmi O.

Business Process Automation

2020-12-08

The Advanced Workflow Engine interface integration with other Application Interface such as Microsoft SharePoint is superb.

Pros

The Globalscape Enhanced File Transfer secure and automotive capability has made secure file transfer easier as files could be sent within and outside the network with utmost ease.

Cons

I would love the Work Transfer Client to be integrated into the Advanced Workflow Engine for effective sending of files above email limit.

FIPS compliant transfers

2019-07-29

This is an effective tool for secure file transfers, and is necessary for our company to do business with some of our key customers.

Pros

The ability for users to create shared workspaces with internal and external members is useful, users report that one of the best features is the simple file send option that requires only the recipient's email address.

Cons

For the last couple of releases there has been a bug present where the user's name is autopopulated in the search field and it must be manually cleared to see the content of your workspace.

My favorite MFT Platform on the market

2020-12-08

I have had a very positive experience with EFT. I have interacted with many MFT applications, and EFT tops them all.

Pros

The software offers the most robust feature set. You have a lot flexibility in how to approach each setup/environment.

Cons

File Transfer is a tough space to be in, because you touch virtually everything in the network, while depending on multiple layers of the environment, without having any sort of control of them.

Securely Transfer Sensitive Files

2019-07-17

We use EFT to send and receive transaction files (blacklists, whitelists, transaction details files) from remote locations to our central processing system.

Pros

You can protect connections with encryption, private keys, passwords and IP filters. It is very flexible in the setup which can be different per connection.

Cons

The configuration can be complex, but the support is excellent.

Easy to build, reliable and excellent customer support

2020-12-10

We had planned to choose the product only for 1 year as a temporary solution but base on its ease of use and functionalities it has been the permanent solution for file transfers.

Pros

. -- Anyone can implement and design file transfer solutions

Cons

-- It has challenge with operating systems other than windows as the agents are designed for windows only.

Ok tool

2020-12-08

Transferring large files to customers

Pros

simple tool. It was not easy to integrated with SSO. but we learnt it form the support.

Cons

Basic functionality is not there for new authentication methods. Even for simple basic common sense features they are asking us to pay for rapid development.

Full Featured file transfer product

2020-12-22

Pros

The EFT software is a full featured and production ready product capable of supporting hundreds of ftp users and workflows. The thing that we like the most about it though is the responsiveness of Globalscape support.

Cons

There are a few areas specific to configuration of certificates where there is not enough granularity in the way things are configured. What I mean by this, is that some areas of the EFT configuration don't let you change the certificate for a specific user, its all or nothing. This can increase risk when we are making updates to these kinds of things, though we have worked around this by deploying a test environment where we can validate changes in advance.

This is a Great Product

2020-12-14

Pros

The application is exceptionally easy to set up and administer. The interface is highly intuitive so you do not need to spend hours and hours to just learn how to use it.

Cons

I really wish there was a way that Globalscape could incorporate more of the AWE functionality into the Event Rules. And while not a huge deal, the ability to create subfolders under an Event Rule folder would be very helpful. Finally, I wish there was more documentation regarding the functionality of this software. The current documentation is mediocre at best.
