TappIn Partners With Antivirus Leader ESET To Provide Content Security And Mobility

Stocks in this article: GSB

TappIn, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of GlobalSCAPE (NYSE MKT: GSB), a leading innovator of secure information exchange solutions for businesses and consumers, announced today that ESET, the leader in proactive cyber-threat protection, has joined its Partner Program. Through the affiliate partnership, ESET will offer TappIn’s secure content mobility solution to customers wanting remote access and file sharing capability, without sacrificing the protection afforded by ESET’s antivirus solution.

Spurred on by the bring-your-own-device ( BYOD) trend, mobile data security has emerged as a top priority for enterprises of all sizes. According to a recent Harris Interactive Poll, 81 percent of workers now use a personal electronic device, including computers, smartphones, and tablets, for work-related functions. Of this group, one-third of respondents admit that their organization’s data is not encrypted, leaving it especially vulnerable to viruses and malware when accessed remotely.

“TappIn’s approach to secure content mobility offers secure access and sharing, and is consistent with the caliber of security our customers have come to expect from ESET,” said Andrew Lee, CEO, ESET North America. “The affiliation with TappIn will allow our customers to securely access and share their data while skipping the step of posting to the Internet. This will further minimize attack vectors and keep data securely stored on devices already protected by ESET’s antivirus and anti-malware solutions.”

TappIn by GlobalSCAPE enables users to securely access their files directly from most operating systems, platforms, and mobile devices. TappIn’s innovative encrypted cloud pathway eliminates the need to upload or sync data to remote computers or electronic devices, allowing individuals and organizations to maintain control of their content, while still giving them the freedom to access and share information from mobile devices without risking the integrity of that data.

"ESET has long been at the forefront of computer security with industry-leading virus and malware detection that protect against a host of evolving threats,” said Chris Hopen, President of TappIn, Inc. “This partnership puts secure mobility at the fingertips of ESET’s consumer and business clients, leveraging ESET’s virus and malware protection to safeguard data where it is stored, and TappIn by GlobalSCAPE’s secure content mobility technology to enable anywhere, anytime access to that data, without requiring it to be moved from the client’s ESET-protected storage repository.”
