Secure FTP server incorporating multiple protocols, secure access, and flexible authentication.

Globalscape Enhanced File Transfer (EFT) platform improves operational efficiency and security for all of your file transfers. EFT SMB is fully scalable to fit your business needs and can be upgraded with modules to provide advanced features, as needed. EFT SMB can improve upon secure FTP and SFTP server integration and provide the advantage of automated data exchanges, military-proven security and infrastructure stability for small-to-medium businesses. EFT SMB boosts operational efficiency by combining a powerful server with an automated client module. Our managed file transfer software gives you the best of both secure file transfer components through advanced automation and a powerful server, all in one platform.


EFT SMB can automate the delivery of data when it's needed, instead of when you have time to do it, increasing your day-to-day productivity and overall operational efficiency. Automation allows you to move and deliver data without constant manual intervention, saving time and minimising potential costly errors. The automation features in EFT SMB provide more control than SFTP servers and a more efficient and secure data exchange process than FTP, allowing you to automate data exchanges among employees, internal systems, remote offices, suppliers, partners and customers.

Security and Compliance 

EFT SMB offers built-in security features and its optional modules help protect your data and facilitate compliance with government and industry regulations, like PCI DSS, SOX, GLB, HIPAA, FIPS and others. From using secure protocols to following the security requirements of the most rigorous compliance standards, EFT SMB securely manages data exchanges among employees, clients and partners using secure protocols, message integrity and data encryption. Using standard, non-proprietary protocols to makes it easy for any authorised clients to connect to EFT SMB.

Anywhere Access

EFT SMB offers browser-based and mobile clients to allow end users to access and share files securely, from anywhere.

EFT Express - Features

Key Features:

  • Custom Commands: The Custom Commands interface built into EFT SMB executes programs, scripts or batch files with or without command-line arguments, providing administrators almost limitless flexibility.
  • The Folder Monitor module: The Folder Monitor module creates an Event Rule trigger used to detect the creation, deletion and renaming of files in a monitored folder and to perform Actions based on these triggers. You can define an Event Rule so that when EFT SMB detects that a file has been added to the folder, an email is sent to notify one or more users that the file is available.
  • The File Transfer Client module: The File Transfer Client module enables EFT SMB admins to define copy, move and download actions in Event Rules.
  • Secure data with SSL/TLS: EFT SMB supports SSL/TLS for client and server authentication, message integrity and encryption. You can configure security features to verify users' identities, allow users to verify your identity and to encrypt file transfers. FTPS is an enhancement to standard FTP that uses secure FTP commands over secure sockets.
  • Transfer Files Over HTTPS: The HTTPS Module adds the HTTPS protocol to EFT SMB, enabling you to support browser-based transfers without having to install a web server.
  • Transfer Files over SFTP/SSH: The SFTP module adds the SFTP protocol to EFT SMB, enabling you to authenticate and transfer data with SFTP-ready FTP clients, such as CuteFTP. EFT SMB allows you to upgrade your SFTP server with the best of both worlds.
  • Transfer Files From Any Web Browser: Give your business partners access to data with our web-based client that can be used on any modern browser, leaving a small footprint that’s easy on your resources.
