    EFT does Whitelisting now?

    by gnewman7 Jul 14, 2016 1:05 AM

    It's a 4 minute 35 second video on YT. Griff or Magnum was asking about whitelisting in the recent past. So they have EFT set up to do both blacklisting and whitelisting either one or both. Very good!

  • How to Add to the IP Access Ban List as White-Listed IPs

    Published on Jun 15, 2016 on youtube

    In this video, we will be adding items to the IP Access Ban List as White Listed (Allowed) IPs. We will run through how to do this at both the Site and User level under the Server Tab in EFT. This will include where to find the IP Access/Ban List configuration window and how to add an IP or range of IPs to the Access Rules list and prevent any IP address not on the list from connecting.

    Wow, crickets here. Well, just for three days till we figured this out.

    Let's see what's up with Tappin...
    Daily Time on Site
    11:01 minutes:seconds and +64.00%

    comm.tappin 2.86% of traffic. If you go there, it's login required. A new one for the stats, it may help explain the increase in traffic. It may.

    Globalscape site:
    dynamic.globalscape 2.53%
    This is sales related. Marketing uses these dynamic pages. Sales too.

    Looks good.

  • A lot of things are progressing nicely and moving forward. It's good to be in record territory with revenue and earnings, looking at where we are and where we came from, like I said elsewhere, even a downish or lower quarter is still setting records, and I think we are going to see much stronger quarters ahead of us whatever Q2 brings in. If we do 15%, that beats the industry competition. If we see more, that is great for Q2 and probably will surprise most if not all. But I believe the team has been rallying around the new commander in chief and so we are likely to hear of the best bookings ever (regarding deals that didn't make it into Q2 revenues but will go onto Q3 books).

    In-depth experience with Design, Build and Support of file transfer workflows in an enterprise class tool is required, Globalscape specific experience is preferred.

    Experience in other ETL tools (ie datastage, etc) is a plus.

    A new one ringing in today and tied at 6th and 7th places with LinkedIn is Abercrombie & Fitch clothing stores, which is in the Top 2500 Websites of the US. Even THEY don't come close to Tappin's Time on Site spent by their visitors, customers.

    Keep those names coming and I'll plug them in the list. Have a favorite you think can beat Tappin? Let's hear about it.

    PS: See my next post on a new job opening for Globalscape's software and it's got to do with the company's ELT department. FYI ELTM is short for Extract, Transform, Load and Manage. With or without the M on the end. Note that on the two-year roadmap Globalscape has earmarked a ELT module for debut. What? Where is the job opening? Oh, at Abercrombie & Fitch. What?! You don't like suspense?

    ELT is moving into a whole new marketplace which is what Matt Goulet discussed in his recent Q&A, go read it again, about how they are going after bigger, more complex installations of EFT. The ELT space would be bigger and more complex and, I have to say, more lucrative. Note they discuss ELT also in the future sense, that the Globalscape expert they hire will have to be ready to move into that aspect of it, the integration or ELT and data management of ELT. So they are talking with Globalscape about the ELT module. it must be close to ready then. Yes, go take a look at the roadmap via the Investor page.

    Looking at the search engine volume of traffic to globalscape site and comparing Q2 2016 (April - June) to Q1 2016 (Jan - Mar) there is a distinct higher volume coming from search. In February there were 2 spikes up over 50% and one of those over 60% of visitors coming from search. But in May & June there were 6 spikes over 50% and two of those were over 60% of visitors coming from search. So they had some strong increases in search beginning in May. Remember, their batting average is really good for closing on deals once they are able to make their presentations. More people coming from search inevitably means more presentations either were made, or going to be made, or both; and that means more deals closed on. However good and record setting Q1 2016 was, Q2 appears to be even stronger.. I would expect them to be leading the MFT industry in their performance growth rates as they have previously pointed out to us in their reports and charts.

    I would like to see the dividend increase to 2.25 cents a share. Some other options are:
    Keep it 1.5 cents a while longer.
    Raise it to 2 cents a share.
    Raise it to 2.5 cents a share.

    At $02.5 per share, that's just $2.1 million in dividends over the next 4 quarters. With their adding of cash on a consistent basis to the current cash buildup of almost $20 million now, even a 2.5 cent dividend is not really a problem for them to do and they will continue to increase the cash total at the same time. It will attract more investors, it will be supportive of the stock price at higher levels, the yield would be very attractive.

    I do not think it is a risky move to go to 2.5 cents per share dividend per quarter. Not at all. We have been at 1.5 cents for a good while now. A steady increase over time in your dividend is a sign of strength that will garner attention with (potential and current) business partners as well as investors. They can see from the accounting books that a raised dividend is coming from profits not gimmicks.

It helps greatly to know what a good company looks like when you are looking for good companies to invest in. What the following tells you about GSB is it's an incredibly fine investment. It is no surprise they pay a dividend and a dividend increase would be no surprise at all.

    When you see this, and the low PE, after looking at just crazy financials all day long, it's an easy buy-in. It's truly a solidly performing company. And when you look at earnings growth or revenue growth being down you see in the context of the last year or two it is up dramatically, so you can understand even "down" it's in an uptrend. Solid company & stock. GL

    I find Alvin very boring and dull witted in certain veins of thought. Monotonous insistence on being right and making too many false quotes, like saying that I said a firewall is not a firewall, that's typical of Alvin. Son, you are one boring dude. Get out more.

    Hi Alvin, you still hving an issue over xml and firewall?

    at least you are persistent.

    Okay. Reread and you will see I nevre said a firewall was not a firewall. I read you the Gospel on it. reread what I wrote until you agree with me and you'll be okay. Where you differ or think I have it wrong, reread until you conclude I am right, and you'll be fine.

    It does not matter who wrote the statements. Your interpretation of the statements are wrong when you conclude that xml is a firewall. That is not the case. HTML isn't a firewall either. Those are markup languages. You can have a computer firewall, a server firewall, a system firewall, and those are all firewalls not computers, servers, systems. Same again for xml firewall. you can also have an html firewall. You can firewall darn near anything. It does not mean, NOT, at all that what you are protecting, in this case, the xml coding, is the firewall. No son, the xml is the thing the firewall is protecting. That firewall is to protect you from someone who has the knowledge I do of xml or html from getting onto your system in areas you never intended for visitors to go to. I can do that easily enough. BUT ... when someone implements the right firewalls against what I know, then of course, I can't get in.

    Your question about if I am active in IT is irrelevant. I don't ride a bike anymore. Does that mean I can't teach you how to ride one or write about riding bikes? Of course not.

    For me, if I was unkind, I would say thank you for making me look good versus you because of past arguments. Since anybody who knows coding who reads all this thread will realize you try to pontificate on subject matter way over your head and argue with experts in whatever it may be, like this xml firewall problem you are having. It calls into question all of your analysis and reminds everyone that if Alvin said it, you better double check the facts before you blindly follow his analysis.

    If you at least were reasonable about it. u doBS

    It does not say that XML is a firewall any more than sea shore says the sea is a shore. Fire house does not say a fire is a house. Dog house does not say a dog is a house. Phone line does not mean a phone is a line.

    XML firewall does not mean xml is a firewall. Computer firewall does not mean that a computer is a firewall. In the article you cut pasted the term xml is a grammatical modifier, not a noun but an adjective. You are trying to somehow turn an adjective into a noun. Pretty girl is not to say, though, that pretty is a girl. An adjective is not a noun.

    Where it says "they are geared toward ..." they are talking about the firewall that works at the xml level.
    All that stuff that follows is what the firewall does, not what xml does.

    Your main problem is calling the firewall as if it is XML. The metapoint you make is that an xml firewall does all these things and that is true, but it is the firewall, and in this instance a firewall designed to work at the xml level. Firewalls work at various levels on platforms, heirarchies. They do not all work the same way. XML is not considered a firewall by anybody in the business, anybody in any university. Period. No argument about it.
    If you are trying to debate me on it, I began coding with html in 1993, 23 years ago. I now incorporate xml into the coding. Is there anything else you need a lecture on? I was trying to be nice and still am. An xl firewall is designed to work at the level of xml. When they are saying xml-based apps they do not at all in any way mean those apps are based on a firewall. "XML-based applications by ..."

    So let's brainstorm some websites I can check out to see if they exceed Tappin's website's average time spent per visitor. So far just Salesforce and Google beat it. Tappin is #3.

    Rank Company Time on Site or TOS
    1. Salesforces 32 minutes
    2. Google 15 minutes 33 seconds and this is #1 in World & US
    3. TAPPIN by GSB 11 minutes 8 seconds
    4. Yahoo 7 mnutes 20 seconds and this is #5 in World & US
    5. LinkedIn 7 minutes 8 seconds
    6. IBM 6 minutes 30 seconds
    7. ATT 6 minutes 30 seconds
    8. Comcast 3 minutes 45 seconds

    Puts Tappin in a new perspective for you, I hope. So my question would be first, What further information and environment can we provide these persons that makes their time more enjoyable and useful and encourages others to join in with them?

    More continued activity from Tappin website
    Visitors' Time on site there is very strong over 11 minutes per average visit
    Globalscape website has about 2 minutes 20 seconds per average visit by contrast.
    Tappin's normal activity was about 5 to 6 minutes on average per visit. It is up 65% the last two weeks.
    So it deserves some monitoring, of course. If it doesn't seem like much to do about nothing or not I would point out what would you think the day it says 20 minutes is the average time spent on Tappin website per person. Because I can tell you from studying websites most big websites don't have that kind of stickiness. Salesforce does at 32 minutes. You can understand why. Email sites do. Easiy to see why. What do you think ATT would be? 6 minutes 30 seconds. Surprised? Try IBM? Okayee... 6 minutes 30 seconds. Satisfied that 11 minutes is superior time on a website? Try Comcast? Okayee... 3 minutes 45 seconds. Okay, Yahoo? Try 7 minutes 20 seconds today's readout for average time on their site. And get this ... Yahoo is #5 in the world and in the US. That is, the number 5 website and they don't get 11 minutes per average visit.

    This is why I recently wrote to the company asking about this and encouraging them to make good use of this asset by applying their top marketing skills to converge on Tappin website and see all the ways they should turn this to their advantage. So many things they can consider doing with marketing, cross selling, advertising, surveying or forgetting surveys a moment just quietly analyze what is going on that is such a strong attraction for these visitors, and who else out there in the world is capitalizing on this same thing and how can Globalscape capitalize on it. If you consider how hard it can be to gain a market following, to gain an audience, what people go through to gain popularity, notariety, fame, brand awareness ... this reaction to the Tappin website is like a gift. But yes, it comes from something the company is doing right.

    Hi Alvin
    XML is not really a firewall. at all. HTML you are prob very familiar with. Website are written designed with it.
    They are markup languages ... the ML in xml html

    Here is a contrast
    An XML processor that encounters such a violation is required to report such errors and to cease normal processing. This policy is in contrast to processing HTML
    thats not security here being talked but protocol
    that is ... XML specifications define a valid XML document as a well-formed XML document
    but error handling could be a security aspect i would grant

    more contrast xml and html
    XSLT is a language with XML syntax to transform XML documents into other XML, HTML, or other documents, unstructured formats such as plain text.

    and see
    W3C I18N FAQ: HTML, XHTML, XML and Control Codes

    hope that helps

    I suppose there may be an element of security but theres no sxml shtml an the word is never used with them

    but otherwise that some good info on f5 gsb xml and thx
