FTP Alternatives: Time for a Change?

Traditional FTP still occupies an important role within many organizations, but when file transfers become mission-critical it may be time to consider an FTP alternative.

For many companies, that time is now – and they are finding a valuable FTP alternative in the form of a managed file transfer solution from Ipswitch. MOVEit is an automated file transfer system that lets you manage, view and control all activity through a single system, greatly reducing the need for hands-on involvement from the IT department. 

So why should you consider leveraging MOVEit as your FTP alternative? Here are a few good reasons:

  • Greater visibility and control: Unlike standard FTP, MOVEit makes it easy to know the status of any file at any time with a centralized console that provides instant verification of file delivery, extensive reporting and notifications.
  • Simplify the transfer process: MOVEit alleviates the headache of maintaining multiple systems and provisioning partners, giving you the ability to manage all of your file transfer processes from a central location.
  • Automate manual tasks: Manual processes are a fact life when it comes to FTP. But with a managed file transfer solution, you have the ability to automate and integrate file transfers without the need for custom scripting.
  • Comply with confidence: Many FTP solutions put your organization at risk of non-compliance. MOVEit was specifically designed to help businesses meet the demanding requirements of HIPAA, PCI, SOX and other regulations. 

MOVEit has fantastic flexibility that allows us to manage, automate and monitor a very large volume of file transfers from a central console that is understandable and easy to use.
