Widespread data breaches, regulatory compliance and corporate governance requirements make it difficult for IT departments to find the right balance between protecting and managing critical data " and providing employees with the access and information-sharing flexibility they need to effectively do their jobs.
Until now, file transfer solutions have focused almost solely on security " overlooking the critical need for end-to-end visibility, management and policy enforcement around sensitive data, such as credit card information, health records and sales intelligence.
Ipswitch's recent survey uncovered that over 90% of IT and security executives admitted to using thumb drives and other external devices to move data. And nearly 70% said that they have no visibility into files outside of their organization. The MOVEit DMZ managed file transfer solution solves these problems with a secure, easy to use solution that provides organizations with visibility, management and enforcement of policies.
MOVEit DMZ 7.0 also offers an optional Ad Hoc Transfer module which enables secure person-to-person file transfer using a Web browser or Microsoft Outlook. Unlike other software and services that are currently in the market today, Ipswitch's Ad Hoc Transfer module not only allows users to seamlessly share information without sacrificing productivity, it also allows companies to stay firmly within compliance of their auditing policies particularly those around email/email attachment retention and discovery.
"We're setting a new standard for managed file transfer, delivering to organizations the visibility and controls they need, while making it easier than ever for end users to securely transfer files of any size," said Jonathan Lampe, Vice President of Product Management, Ipswitch. "The Outlook plug-in provides a seamless employee experience as they interact with people inside or outside the organization."
MOVEit DMZ's new person-to-person Ad Hoc Transfer module lets organizations:
Quickly and securely transfer files through Microsoft Outlook or a Web browser
Oversee and manage all file transfer activities, internally and externally
Create and enforce file transfer and file sharing policies
Eliminate the "file attachment" burden from the email server
