Safeguard Your Sensitive Data

Data and file security requires more than just securing infrastructure. You need the right tools to respond to security and compliance incidents.

While file transfer security features like end-to-end encryption and anti-virus support are critical, IT leaders also need the ability to respond to events in real-time if and when they occur. Very few file transfer systems offer both.

This lesson was learned the hard way by the Operations Manager at a major metropolitan hospital. Their data had always been encrypted (as required by law), but their file transfer system proved unreliable and prone to interruptions during extreme peak data volumes, leading to deliverability and auditing issues with some of their most highly sensitive files. 

“We needed better visibility into the file transfer process,” he said. “An issue like this should have been discovered immediately – we need to be able to track the status of any file, any time. Without being able to easily monitor all activity, we were essentially flying blind.”

So how did they ensure that an incident like this would never happen again? By switching to a Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution via MOVEit. Used by thousands of businesses, governments and non-profit organizations, MOVEit gives IT administrators the ability to monitor all file transfer activity between users. Additionally, it offers a number of highly advanced security features designed to meet the needs of organizations in the most data-sensitive industries, including:


  • Encryption during transport and at rest
  • Security wizard; streamlined security administration lockdown process
  • Vulnerability protection; support for OWASP Top 10 2013
  • Anti-virus protection; support for McAfee, Symantec, and Sophos
  • Encryption and protocol rules (FTPS, SFTP, SSH, and HTTP/S)
  • Hardened server settings and OS-independent security
  • FIPS 140-2 cryptography (NIST certified)
  • MOVEit Cloud now PCI DSS Certified
