GlobalSCAPE has again proven to the world who’s the leading developer when it comes to secure information exchange solutions. Recently, the US Army, considered as one of the most powerful Armed forces in the world ordered a multi-million dollar worth of new product licenses of Secure FTP Server and CuteFTP. The purchase associates to GlobalSCAPE’s 36 months product maintenance and support services.
This is not the first time that the US Army chosen to order from GlobalSCAPE. They have also had previous substantial orders dated back in 2005 and 2007.
GlobalSCAPE’s secure file transfer solutions were deployed as part of the of the Single Army Logistics Enterprise (SALE), it’s an Army initiative that specializes in the information technology which tracks the personnel, equipment, munitions and supplies.
“We are very pleased to continue supporting the Army in delivering the secure information exchange solutions necessary to enable their mission-critical logistics systems,” GlobalSCAPE President and CEO, Jim Morris says. “GlobalSCAPE’s role in developing and sustaining market-leading solutions that deliver distinct information advantages to our government and commercial customers is something we take very seriously. This is our third substantial contract award with the Army and further validates our business strategy to pursue the difficult software certifications and validations necessary to compete successfully in the government sector and within regulated commercial industries.”
Due to this recent order, GlobaSCAPE received the Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) from the U.S. Army Network Technology Command and Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validation. The FIPS 140-2 validation has been required by most government departments like Department of Defense (DoD). The integrity of such technologies like GlobalSCAPE’s should also be implemented on health care companies, financial and manufacturing markets, such pressure has befallen on these sectors to ensure that critical information is secure.
Until next time 😉
