GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a leading developer of secure information exchange solutions for businesses and consumers, today announced that the company has expanded its capabilities by acquiring privately-held, Seattle-based mobile file sharing innovator TappIn, Inc., formerly known as HomePipe Networks, Inc.
Founded in 2009, TappIn allows users to instantly access and securely share all files stored on an office or home computer from any web browser and all popular mobile devices, including Apple iPhone ® and iPad ®, Google ® Android™ and Windows ® Phone. The service will be known as TappIn™ by GlobalSCAPE ®, offering its worldwide customer base an easy, secure method to access and share documents, photos, videos, and music across multiple devices, regardless of time or location.
“Combining GlobalSCAPE’s leadership in secure information exchange with TappIn’s strength in secure digital content mobility allows us to deliver a powerful solution for consumers and businesses,” said GlobalSCAPE CEO Jim Morris. “Through this acquisition, GlobalSCAPE continues to remove barriers between users and their content, stored in multiple locations, while maintaining privacy and security regardless of the device being used. There has been explosive growth in tablet and smartphone sales in recent years, and we expect this trend to continue, driving strong market demand for the TappIn solution.”
“We are excited to join with a strong, global market leader like GlobalSCAPE,” said TappIn president Chris Hopen. “We share a common vision that people need a trusted solution for securely accessing and sharing digital content, regardless of where their content resides. GlobalSCAPE is a great fit for TappIn, and I’m confident this relationship puts the company in an excellent position for continued growth.”With TappIn by GlobalSCAPE, users can safely access data directly from most operating systems, platforms, and mobile devices. This eliminates the need for uploading, syncing, or paying for additional cloud storage. The TappIn service securely accesses the user’s existing storage devices, allows sharing files of any size, and provides encryption to safeguard content.
