How Cambridgeshire County Council utilise Ipswitch MOVEit File Transfer to improve control and visibility of transfers
Following consultation with Pro2col, Cambridgeshire County Council has deployed Ipswitch’s MOVEit managed file transfer (MFT) technology to secure the transfer of data files, and to protect citizen, organisation and management information across 100 locations and 4,000 workers. MOVEit allows the secure transfer and sharing of files within the council, and gives the council full control and visibility of file transfers to external departments and associations, such as healthcare organisations, housing providers and charities.
“We needed technology that met our IT and business needs. From an IT perspective, this included security parameters, integration with existing applications, servers and processes, and ease-of-use for our employees and partners,” Alan Shields, IT Architect for Cambridgeshire County Council, said. “We’d previously used a secure FTP platform and the Government Connect Gateway, but we needed to have a broader solution that would allow us to securely share important files with third parties. With MOVEit, we now have visibility and control over file activity, so we know where data is, who has access to it and who has shared it. It’s important to us as a public body, that we know where our files are at all times, and with Ipswitch File Transfer we have that peace of mind.”
