GlobalSCAPE Tackles Data Regulations With Eighth Generation MFT
On January 15, 2020, GlobalSCAPE announced it is launching the eighth generation of its managed file transfer (MFT) platform, called Enhanced File Transfer (EFT) 2020. Its new product focuses on the simplicity of secured file transfer and aims to establish itself at the forefront of data regulatory compliance in the MFT space.
“GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation], PIPEDA [Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act], and CCPA [California Consumer Privacy Act] are only the beginning of potential compliance and privacy headaches for enterprises,” said Roberto Garcia, Vice President of Product Strategy and Engineering at GlobalSCAPE.
This means any half-baked data control policy will not be enough to keep up with all the emerging data regulations. With EFT 2020, GlobalSCAPE aims to give its clients the ability to comply with all regulations using a platform that makes increasingly layered data compliance automatic. Its new platform gives users the right to exercise controls over their data and provides an industry-first built-in GDPR – Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) report. These new features will bring GlobalSCAPE into direct competition with other MFT leaders such as GoAnywhere, which has also implemented several features such as personal data encryption and audit trails to meet GDPR requirements.
Along with all its compliance measures, GlobalSCAPE’s EFT 2020 looks to set a new standard for user experience in the MFT industry. The new platform will include:
- Integration capabilities with Microsoft Window’s PowerShell
- Simplified cloud migration processes
- Smoother integration with existing platforms

- GDPR, CCPA, and PIPEDA are only the beginning of a long line of data regulations to come. Built-in compliance controls and assessments are the next logical steps to staying ahead of these regulations and GlobalSCAPE knows it.
- With this kind of compliance control emerging in the MFT space, organizations may begin using MFTs as a third-party compliance tool if they don’t have the resources or manpower to establish layered controls as further regulations are released, therefore, establishing a new value proposition for the MFT industry.

In the ever-evolving landscape of SaaS Security, one company has quietly forged its path, becoming a beacon of protection for large enterprises grappling with the growing complexity of SaaS applications. This is the story of Adaptive Shield, a rising star in the SaaS Security space, whose journey from a nimble startup to a recognized industry leader is as remarkable as the solutions it offers. Founded in 2019 by cybersecurity veterans Maor Bin and Jony Shlomoff, Adaptive Shield entered the scene with a bold vision: to address the growing blind spot in the SaaS ecosystem regarding enterprise security – including the dangers deriving from misconfigured security controls, lack of management regarding human and non-human identities, interconnected apps, and the detection of threats within these business-critical apps. Recognizing the exponential adoption of SaaS and the inherent risks it posed, the company set out to build a comprehensive shield, not just for individual applications, but for the entire interconnected SaaS ecosystem.

We should start by defining what a secret is. It’s really any piece of confidential information used to authenticate access to sensitive resources. This includes passwords, API keys, encryption keys, SSH keys, and other digital credentials. Many of the organizations I talk to have an application security program with some OWASP checks in the pipeline, some SAST, but rarely SCA or DAST testing. GitGuardian believes secrets detection and remediation is crucial for maintaining security and preventing unauthorized individuals from accessing sensitive information or disrupting critical systems. I agree and believe the value it can bring to an application security program is significant.
Q headlines a bevy of announcements at AWS re:Invent 2023 in Las Vegas that shed more light on the cloud service provider’s AI strategy and where its differentiation from other vendors lies.
This note outlines some tips and tricks that you should be aware of when embarking on the installation and configuration of a Kubernetes cluster. Such an endeavor should only be attempted if the need for an enterprise-grade container orchestration solution is required.
It’s simply not enough today to pit your traditional application security toolkit against today’s advanced threats, especially those attacks that target APIs or mobile platforms. Bolstering your CI/CD pipeline by introducing more advanced and accurate SAST, SCA, IAST, and DAST will most certainly improve your security posture, but the journey does not end there. There are attacks and use cases that need careful consideration for how you approach security. Appdome believes it has those unknown challenges addressed and can significantly improve your application security program with very little effort from your development and security team, a welcome change from solutions that required a good bit of work to introduce problem-free into your code base four years ago.
