Globalscape Dashboard Combines Big Data, Security and BA
Storing, securing and maintaining enterprise data is hard enough. But what about actually monitoring where that data is going and how fast it’s moving? That may seem like a luxury for IT admins already stretched thin, but in a new solution introduced by Globalscape, it’s possible. Here are the details.
Last week, Globalscape released a new dashboard feature for its Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) product. The interface provides advanced reporting features for the company’s Enhanced File Transfer (EFT) server, which it touts as a “military-grade” file transfer solution.
Globalscape BAM, which runs on both Windows and Linux, permits real-time monitoring of data transfers for both the EFT server and third-party transactions through a Web interface. It also provides statistics, reporting and other auditing tools. Here’s a look:
The product has a variety of applications for enterprises large and small, such as tracking currency exchanges, shipments and deliveries; monitoring the transfer of sensitive data; and evaluating commercial performance. It is designed to be useful both for internal tasks and for interactions involving partners and customers.
Globalscape, which was founded in 1996 and in 2011 acquired TappIn Inc., has been established in the data channel for a long time. Its CuteFTP product is among the most popular FTP clients, and it counts among its customers 15,000 companies in more than 150 countries.
As the company’s newest feature, Globalscape BAM positions the organization at the intersection of the security, Big Data and business analytics channels. It also promises to be relevant to cloud computing, especially as more and more data ends up in clouds and customers demand better solutions for monitoring transfers and ensuring the security of files once they leave the local environment.
