Bournemouth, Dorset (PRWEB UK) 1 March 2012
Pro2col Ltd. (http://www.pro2col.com), the UK's leading managed file transfer supplier and integrator, have today announced the formation of a strategic partnership with Sigma Software Distribution and GlobalSCAPE Inc. Following their recent appointment as primary distributors of GlobalSCAPE's secure data exchange solutions in the UK, Sigma seized the opportunity to reinforce their 25 years of experience in technical, development and business software with Pro2col's extensive knowledge of the MFT marketplace.
“Sigma is delighted to be partnering with Pro2col in the drive to increase sales of GlobalSCAPE’s award winning secure file transfer solutions through the UK reseller channel. Pro2col’s vast knowledge within this market place enables Sigma to offer its customers the opportunity to obtain both licences and high-end service support from one single source. This approach is completely aligned with Sigma’s own channel strategy where we aim to provide resellers with a one-stop shop for all of their non-mainstream software requirements,” says Jane Silk, Head of Vendor Relations at Sigma Software Distribution.
The managed file transfer marketplace has seen significant growth in recent years, spurred by the compelling need for comprehensive security, visibility and control over the data moving into, out of and throughout the modern business environment. MFT is becoming standard practice as organisations look to move away from legacy file transfer technologies such as standard FTP, which lack the fundamental features required to safeguard their sensitive data.
Built to comply with the stringent data security regulations that govern a variety of industry sectors such as PCI DSS, FIPS and the Data Protection Act, GlobalSCAPE’s EFT Server automates and secures the exchange of sensitive information. For ad hoc file transfers, GlobalSCAPE’s Mail Express provides organisations with a user-friendly solution that enables employees to send large files via a Microsoft® Outlook® plug-in or web browser interface. Thus, businesses can implement the necessary controls to prevent the use of unsecured, external solutions such as personal email and file sharing sites.
"Rather than diluting our portfolio with too many comparable solutions, we carefully evaluate each product to make sure that we're providing our customers the 'best in breed' solution for their specific requirements," commented James Lewis, Managing Director of Pro2col. "With the strength of GlobalSCAPE's products and the reach that Sigma provide into the reseller marketplace, we're positive that our expertise will help to replicate the success that GlobalSCAPE is having in the US, here in the UK market."
