Ipswitch release MOVEit™ 8.1 Managed File Transfer Server – Available now

Ipswitch announced the release of MOVEit™ 8.1 managed file transfer system providing IT administrators with enhanced enterprise security and compliance of file-based processes through integration with pre-existing IT infrastructures. Integration with security and business continuity solutions allows IT teams to streamline routine tasks and increase overall productivity.

“Traditional file transfer is not the right solution for most enterprises today. IT teams need a secure
file transfer system that isn’t hard to set up or manage and integrates with the existing IT
infrastructure,”
said Loic Triger, vice president of international sales at Ipswitch.
“With the release of the MOVEit 8.1 managed file transfer system we’re delivering upon our company
mission to provide our customers with simple solutions for complex IT problems, through
standards-based integration with critical security and business continuity systems that will
streamline IT tasks and increase end user adoption and productivity.”

 

Key New Features

  • Single sign-on (SSO) integration through SAML 2.0* standards-based integration with identity and access management systems from Microsoft, OneLogin, and Shibboleth reduces administration time and improves end user productivity
  • Data loss prevention (DLP) integration through ICAP** standards-based integration with solutions from McAfee, RSA and Symantec helps IT teams monitor and control movement of sensitive files wherever they go
  • Disaster recovery and failover support via integration with Neverfail IT Continuity Engine to minimise downtime for business continuity and to further satisfy requirements for regulatory compliance

“Too many enterprises – IT teams and end-users alike – are struggling with complex, manual
methods for moving files, with a resulting lack of visibility, control and consistency with policies for
security and compliance,”
said Derek Brink, vice president and research fellow at Aberdeen Group, a Harte Hanks Company.

“The good news is that it’s possible for IT teams to provide their users with an
enterprise-supported managed file transfer solution that addresses these issues, without the chaos
of custom coding or uncontrolled consumer-oriented solutions.”
