-MOVEit Cloud 8.0 seamlessly extends Managed File Transfer to mobile devices-

Ipswitch File Transfer (IT), the trusted choice for securely moving business information, has launched MOVEit Cloud 8.0, adding mobile support to the MOVEit Managed File Transfer (MFT) cloud service. MOVEit Cloud 8.0 enables employees to seamlessly and securely access and transfer business files from mobile devices, while keeping them associated with the appropriate business processes and internal systems.

The MOVEit MFT system is used by businesses to transfer files between business partners, customers and employees, and to automate file-based workflows. With the addition of the new MOVEit mobile features, mobile devices become a seamless extension of a company’s MFT system and automated file workflows. IT has the automation it needs to ensure the proper files are available to mobile workers; the visibility and control to manage who receives certain files and when; with the ease of use and security required for mobile devices.

“As the influx of mobile devices continues, companies have to adapt their file transfer processes and automated workflows to support them,” said Rich Kennelly, president of Ipswitch File Transfer. “8.0 brings together the file automation, visibility and control, and mobile support IT needs to confidently extend business to mobile devices.”

“We adopted MOVEit Cloud 8.0 to send and receive files containing sensitive information to and from our clients. In our business, it is critical that the storage and transfer of information and data are reliable and secure. MOVEit Cloud 8.0 provides that and much more,” said Elaine Reber, director of Information Technology, zIngenuity. “Our staff and clients have enjoyed MOVEit’s friendly user interface and outstanding availability during the two years we have utilised it. The application has given us the comfort of knowing sensitive business files are being sent and received through a secure, enterprise-class managed file transfer system.”

MOVEit Cloud 8.0 combines the most flexible MFT solution for businesses on mobile devices with the convenience of a cloud-based service. It offers:
• The ability to securely send and receive files with business partners, customers, and employees.
• Mobile access to the latest files from business systems with the ability to upload new files.
• The automation IT requires to ensure the proper files are available to mobile workers.
• The visibility and control of who receives certain files and when.
• A scalable architecture of cloud, with elasticity to meet peaks in demand.
• The highest reliability with a lower total cost of ownership of a cloud-based service.

“In today’s business environment, organisations need to be able to quickly adapt to changing behaviors,” said Michael Osterman, principal of analyst firm Osterman Research. “By offering MOVEit 8.0 for the cloud, Ipswitch is providing customers with the visibility, security and control they require in their Managed File Transfer environment, to extend it to mobile devices- all in a flexible SaaS solution.”
