Start Using Our MFT Solution Within Minutes
GlobalScape provides Managed File Transfer software via 3 of their main packages defined as EFT Enterprise, EFT Express and EFT Arcus. They use a number of transfer protocols and their own patented application of UDP, just like us, so you can expect comparable transfer speeds.
Although as a GlobalScape alternative Filemail can be considered a competitor to all 3 packages, we shall be focusing on a comparison between us and GlobalScape’s EFT Enterprise package.
Enterprises must comply with certain regulations, be they industry specific, general legislative measures due to region, or due to the type of data that is being handled. GlobalScape and Filemail both offer comprehensive enterprise packages that cater to such needs, but as you can see in the table below, Filemail covers more mandates.
GlobalScape have many costs that need to be taken into account. For a start there is the per server-instance license. Then there is the cost in configuration and training. Because GlobalScape do not provide storage, you will have to address that as well. Taking into account some modules are not included, it is easy to see how these things add-up. We charge $40.83 per user per month, which includes all our modules, and a stellar internal customer support team.
You can’t just sign up to GlobalScape and start sharing files ad-hoc. Their solution is complicated and takes time to configure, be it templates, rules, or workspaces. Furthermore, relevant personnel will need to be trained either by GlobalScape or one of their regional partners. With our file transfer solution, you sign-up within minutes, and securely share files as easily as you email.
A feature-by-feature comparison of what you will get with Filemail and Signiant Enterprise packages, is presented in the table below.
5 TB / User
(More on request)
Using GlobalScape you will have to purchase and configure storage space. With Filemail, each user gets 5 TB, with more on request.
GlobalScape only permits you to upload 4 GB using a Browser, and only 20 GB using AS2 inbound. We have no such limits.
You will need to configure your own anti-virus, which could well be an additional cost. Filemail has anti-virus built in.
Our Customer Support team is not an add-on. They are ready to assist, and our founders and engineering are on-hand if need be.
The ease of use is an instant win for me, after all who wants to wrestle with an application, designed to make your life easier? Quick and simple and the range of options: desktop, iPhone, iPad and Android is second to none. I'd recommend the Pro Plan to pushing large amounts of assets. I work in TV graphics, so push a lot of pixels. The Pro Plan is perfect with its unlimited file size. It's revolutionised my workflow!
I have used Filemail for several months and find it very easy to use. It solved problems we have here at the bank when we need to send large files. The platform also provides a secure way to send confidential information back and forth between the bank and our customers.
I have been using Filemail for several years with great satisfaction. It is a very fast service, especially with the Filemail Desktop application, both for uploading and for downloading. Furthermore you can easily upload files over 2 GB and the localization in Italian makes everything easy and immediate.
