TappIn by Globalscape Gives Rackspace Customers Access to Their Data Anywhere, Anytime and from Any Platform

Globalscape is providing Rackspace (NYSE: RAX) customers more freedom to access and share their data no matter where life takes them. Globalscape (NYSE MKT: GSB) announced today the TappIn by Globalscape mobile file sharing solution's availability on the Rackspace Cloud Tools Marketplace.

"Rackspace customers look for flexibility and agility from an open cloud platform," said Ven Shanmugam, senior manager for corporate strategy at Rackspace. "By aligning efforts with TappIn, we are eliminating obstacles that once plagued businesses by helping them leverage the cloud to gain unhindered access to their data. We're excited to have TappIn available to our customers via the Cloud Tools Marketplace and we look forward to ongoing collaboration."

TappIn gives customers the ability to instantly access and securely share virtually all of their files, no matter where they're stored: on office and home computers, office servers, or OnTapp cloud storage. Using SSL encryption to safeguard content, TappIn securely allows sharing of files from any web browser on your desktop and from mobile devices and platforms, including Apple iPhone, Google Android and Windows Phone.

"Instant access to your data from anywhere can seem like a luxury for some, but it's a critical part of day-to-day business activities for many others," says Bill Buie, Globalscape executive vice president of sales and marketing. "There is rarely a substitute for 'now' and we're excited to help connect Rackspace customers with their data quickly and securely, regardless of where they are or where their content is stored."

After downloading the TappIn solution, all Rackspace customers will receive a 30-day free trial of the TappIn Pro Edition, which provides seamless, mobile access to your data, access to OnTapp secure cloud storage service, direct WebDAV access to your content, and administrative functionality to support groups of users. Customers can then choose to continue using the Pro Edition for $39.99 per year or switch to TappIn's Standard Edition for $19.99 per year.
