New Features Added to Managed File Transfer Products Help IT Teams Protect Data When Most Vulnerable
London, UK. 11th October, 2016 – Ipswitch, the leader in easy to try, buy and use IT management software, today announced MOVEit® 2017 – the combined release includes new versions of its industry leading Managed File Transfer products MOVEit® Transfer, MOVEit® Automation and Ipswitch® Analytics. These new releases significantly enhance the ability of IT teams to ensure the secure exchange of sensitive data with external partners on a global scale, and in compliance with data protection regulations such as HIPAA, PCI and GDPR.
In our information-based economy, the daily exchange of data with external organisations has become a core process of businesses across a large number of industries. Healthcare providers and Insurers routinely share Protected Health Information (PHI) between themselves and regulatory agencies. Retailers and Financial institutions transmit payment card data. Organisations in multiple industries routinely exchange Personally Identifiable Information (PII). All of this data is protected by regulations such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), GDPR (the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation) and others. PHI, PII and payment card data are the target of global cybercriminal activity. MOVEit® helps safeguard that data when it is most vulnerable – in transit, as well as when the data is at rest, with best in class encryption.
Ipswitch’s industry leading MOVEit® products help IT teams ensure these exchanges are secure, in compliance with data protection regulations, and automated to reduce IT overhead costs and meet internal and external Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
MOVEit Transfer 2017 provides enhanced language support and improvements to its user interface. MOVEit users can now externally transfer files in any language (including support for Japanese and Simplified Chinese) to anywhere in the world securely and in compliance with multiple data protection regulations.
MOVEit Automation 2017 includes new features that significantly extend IT team’s ability to automate core data exchange processes at high volumes while continuing to meet SLAs and reduce IT costs. These include improvements to its state-of-the-art web admin interface, the ability to manage files and resources in any language and SOCKS proxy support for SFTP hosts.
Ipswitch Analytics 2017 enables SLA and compliance reporting with new advanced data filters, and enhanced management of security keys, licenses and agents. Additionally, Ipswitch Analytics provides new agents for Microsoft Exchange that extend IT teams’ visibility to include data transfers that occur through email. This significantly enhances the organisations ability to assure regulatory compliance by providing first time visibility into an area of increasing concern – ad hoc file transmissions of sensitive data by employees.
“With many organisations implementing security policies to restrict manual file transfers, IT teams need a flexible, IT-approved solution that provides the ease-of-use that today’s employees crave combined with the security IT teams demand for protection and compliance,” said Austin O’Malley, Chief Product Officer at Ipswitch. “Thousands of companies in some of the most data-sensitive industries are using MOVEit 2017 to better manage data exchange processes from a central console that is understandable and easy-to-use.”
To make it easier for IT teams to buy a solution that meets their exact requirements while increasing the value they receive from their investment, MOVEit Transfer 2017 and MOVEit Automation 2017 are offered in Standard, Professional and Premium editions. MOVEit Automation 2017 is also offered in an additional edition, Basic, which is ideal for small businesses.
All MOVEit 2017 solutions – MOVEit Transfer, MOVEit Automation, Ipswitch Analytics and Ipswitch Gateway – are combined in the comprehensive MOVEit Complete package, which simplifies IT teams’ Managed File Transfer needs in Standard, Professional and Premium editions as well.
