Network Automation Launches OEM Program for AutoMate Software; GlobalSCAPE Signs On to Offer New Workflow Engine for EFT Server

January 5, 2009

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ — Network Automation, Inc., today
announced an OEM program for its flagship AutoMate(TM) product, the only
software platform that automates hundreds of business and IT processes via
drag-and-drop without the need to write code. AutoMate’s functionality can now
be embedded into any IT or business software package — including
network/system monitoring products, job schedulers, and integration platforms
– to eliminate repetitive manual processes and accelerate information flows
across the enterprise or supply chain.

The company’s first OEM partner is GlobalSCAPE, a provider of managed file
transfer products enabling secure exchange of critical information over public
networks. AutoMate powers the new Advanced Workflow Engine add-on module
announced separately today for GlobalSCAPE’s EFT (Enhanced File Transfer)
Server, a secure file transfer solution that provides businesses with a
value-added alternative to leased lines, VANs, VPNs and homegrown systems.

Using AutoMate’s intuitive drag-and-drop task-building interface, the
Advanced Workflow Engine enables GlobalSCAPE’s customers to easily build
complex workflows that leverage and extend EFT Server’s core functionality.
File transfers can now become part of a larger, cost-saving process that
includes rule-based file automation (copy, move, delete, compression,
encryption, synchronization, etc.); automated data extraction (including XML
parsing and Microsoft Excel integration); automated database integration (SQL
Server, Oracle, mySQL or any ODBC-compliant database); and more — all without
coding or scripting.

“EFT Server has always offered more than basic file transfer, but
partnering with Network Automation allows us to transform the product into a
file-related business process automation platform,” said Tim Barton, Vice
President and team leader of EFT Server products for GlobalSCAPE. “The
Advanced Workflow Engine module will save our customers both time and money as
they develop workflows to streamline and automate complex processes involving
file transfer.”

“Our OEM program gives software vendors an opportunity to add significant
value to their products. This is clearly illustrated in the GlobalSCAPE
partnership,” said Dustin Snell, CEO of Network Automation. “Instead of
selling point solutions, vendors can now offer a complete platform for
automating virtually any operation related to their core product without
requiring programming expertise. This offers a strong competitive advantage
for software solutions of many kinds.”

AutoMate enables IT staff to quickly and easily build tasks that
streamline and automate batch file processing, application integration, job
scheduling, database transactions, FTP transfers, Excel functions, Active
Directory operations, and beyond. All actions are pre-programmed and all tasks
are described in plain English, enabling configuration by IT staff without
programming skills. Workflow sequences are assembled by selecting tasks from a
menu and dragging and dropping them in their logical execution order.

The new OEM version can be easily embedded into other software products
and is available immediately from Network Automation.
