MOVEit™ Cloud 8.0 Seamlessly Extends Managed File Transfer to Mobile Devices

Thursday, November 14, 2013 – Lexington, MA - Ipswitch File Transfer, 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. The new Mobile MFT features allow workers 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 today to transfer files between business partners, customers, and employees, as well as 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 of 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 utilized 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 extended to mobile devices with the convenience of a cloud-based service:
  • Ability to securely send and receive files with business partners, customers, and employees.
  • Mobile access to the latest files from business systems with ability to upload new files.
