Up to 40% off MOVEit MFT Licences

Up to 40% off MOVEit for Public Sector Organisations

How MOVEit solutions are transforming the way healthcare and local government organisations work

Pressures of the public sector are well understood – limited budgets, strained resources and a necessity to prove the value of investment. The need to transfer large quantities of confidential and sensitive data, quickly and securely between multiple organisations is equally challenging, but sometimes less visible.

 

That’s why we’re offering up to 40% off new MOVEit licences for public sector organisations until the end of November 2020. Contact us to book a demo.

 

What is MOVEit Managed File Transfer?

Managed File Transfer solutions secure and govern the transfer of data between two or more endpoints, using one or more file transfer protocols. MOVEit Transfer, from Progress (formerly Ipswitch), supports the exchange of files and data between servers, systems and applications, both within and between organisations, through a simple browser based interface. Files can be easily accessed and secured using processes that exceed security and compliance policies, making investment easy to justify.

Many public sector organisations are already benefiting from MOVEit Transfer’s outstanding feature set, which includes:

  • Security, encryption, access control.
  • Automatic logging and monitoring all file transfer activities.
  • Simplified auditing process with automated SLA and compliance reporting.
  • Customisable reports using drag-and-drop features, proving easy insight into key metrics.
  • An intuitive interface, which also works through Outlook or a web browser.

We’ve worked with a variety of public sector organisations to implement MOVEit solutions. The below examples demonstrate how you can begin benefiting just a few days after implementation.

Cambridgeshire Council

Before an MFT solution was implemented, council employees were required to manually transfer data between disparate systems. This was inefficient, and every file transfer increased the risk of security breaches. Users noted that securely sharing large files, or sensitive information such as health or social care records, with emergency services or housing associations was difficult, despite being frequently required. Cambridgeshire Council needed to deliver the high-level of control expected by central government, while equipping users with the necessary tools to mitigate the risk of data leaks, without hampering productivity.

MOVEit’s functionality and ease of use made it the ideal solution, and its implementation was extremely successful. It enabled efficiency and superior integration, and required minimal user training. The council now has up to 4000 users who are able to send and report on more data more securely, including large files that would ordinarily be blocked by an email platform.

NHS

NHS organisations work across hospitals, GP surgeries, clinics, dental practices, palliative care centres, pharmacies and more. Their main challenge is securely controlling, monitoring and auditing the movement of confidential data both internally and between third parties. In order to maintain accuracy and compliance with GDPR, they needed a solution with flexibility and ease of use for data editing.

MOVEit allows NHS organisations to securely transfer files that would normally exceed the limit applicable to emails, and facilitates the movement of data through firewalls. Information can now securely flow between health boards, to social services, pharmaceutical companies, emergency services and external third parties. What’s more, the data can be properly audited, managed and encrypted while at rest, or in transit. This means that further protective measures are easy to implement whenever required. Since its implementation, the technology has been rolled out to support the operations of social services departments, police and ambulance services.

3 Powerful Examples of MFT and DLP Paired in Action

Three Powerful Examples of MFT and DLP Paired in Action

This guest blog from HelpSystems outlines how you can maximise the power of MFT by pairing it with a DLP solution

On paper, combining two robust software products to form a more complete solution is a no-brainer. But how does it actually work? First, let’s take a look at what the two solutions – adaptive data loss protection (A-DLP) and managed file transfer (MFT) – each offer users. Then, we’ll highlight a few specific use cases where the combination of DLP and MFT elevates an organisation’s cybersecurity position, better than each solution could alone.

DLP offers content inspection:

  • Replacing sensitive text – including PII, PCI, and HIPAA – with asterisks.
  • Detecting and redacting text contained in images, even scanned ones.
  • Redacting text but allowing for files to still be delivered, minus offending content.

MFT delivers secure file transfers:

  • Dashboard-friendly, centralised control
  • Auditing and reporting
  • Advanced workflow automation
  • Document collaboration
  • File transfer security

What Level of Data Security do DLP and MFT Provide Together?

  • With MFT in place, the movement of files inside and outside of your organisation is secure and automated, with the collaboration and data tracking functionality not available with DLP alone.
  • MFT securely transfers attachments between organisations and trading partners
  • The ICAP Gateway intercepts content when threat protection and DLP requirements exist
  • ICAP runs rule sets (keyword search, executable renaming, script removal, etc.).
  • If the content can be sanitised the transmission is allowed and continues
  • If content cannot be sanitised the transmission is blocked

Together, HelpSystems’ Clearswift A-DLP solution and MFT provide a layered, unified, and web-based solution – from the content contained, to the secure data transfer of the content. Both solutions are trusted worldwide for their ability to provide enterprise-level protection against data breaches. When software is paired from a single provider, it provides stability and superior customer service.

MFT and DLP Use Cases: Combined for End-to-End Security

Use Case #1: Defence sector vendor needs to transfer attachments between employees and trading partners.

Originally, this vendor used MFT to securely transfer the attachments sent between its employees and partners. They decided to also add deep content inspection to these file transfers by integrating their MFT with Secure ICAP Gateway, adding Structural Sanitisation and Anti-Virus for additional layers of security. With both solutions in place, the vendor can:

  • Intercept content when threat protection and DLP requirements exit.
  • Run the proper rule sets (keyword search, executable renaming, script removal, etc.).
  • Control whether content is allowed or blocked. If content can be sanitised, then transmission continues. However, if content cannot be sanitised then the transmission is blocked.

Use Case #2: A credit card vendor needed insight into when customer, employee and/or patient records in a file were being uploaded to MFT.

This credit card vendor needed to detect when records contained in files (for employees and/or patients) were being uploaded to MFT. They also needed to be able to count the records and maintain an audit log showing what data was being shared and with whom, and to have the ability to corroborate files from a single record. The vendor was able to do all of this by integrating the secure ICAP Gateway with MFT. In addition, with this combination of solutions, they can take advantage of Lexical Expression Qualifiers and trigger different actions based on the number of records detected – actions such as an audit, refer to sender, redaction or block).

Use Case #3: Government agency needed same level of security from uploads received as they got from their MFT transactions.

This government agency regularly needs to accept file uploads from partners and the public. However, because this action can be exploited to deliver active content or even viruses and malware, they knew they needed to achieve comparable threat protection to what they had in place with their MFT file transfers. The agency integrated the Secure ICAP Gateway with their MFT for a combined, secure solution. Now, any file can be scanned before it is either passed or accepted and infected content is then destroyed or redacted. They also have the choice of triple-AV (Kaspersky/Sophos/Avira) and constant Active Content Protection in place.

Certified File Transfer Professional: Getting Started

FREE FILE TRANSFER TRAINING DURING COVID-19 LOCKDOWN

Five reasons why the CFTP is the ideal training programme for IT professionals right now

IT departments across the world have closed their offices and turned out the lights. Busy support desks are now dispersed across sofas and kitchen counter tops, and the board room has been replaced with the home study.
