Secure File Transfer

Simple & Secure File Transfer: 5 Ways to Make it Work for You

Ipswitch File Transfer solutions are designed to be easy to install, easy to manage, and affordable—even on the high end. Below are the five most common ways that IT departments are solving file transfer problems with Ipswitch solutions. 


1. Reliable and Secure File Transfer Server

WS_FTP Server »

WS_FTP Server is the market-leading commercial FTP server used by customers for 20+ years. It is accessible from web  browsers, Outlook email plugin or any FTP client. WS_FTP installs in minutes and quickly enables your organization to transfer large files using standard and secure FTP/HTTP protocols encrypting files while in transit.

For more robust management requirements including scalability and compliance requirements, most organizations turn to Managed File Transfer with MOVEit (see #2 below).

2. Managed File Transfer for Security & Compliance

MOVEit File Transfer (DMZ) Server »

MOVEit File Transfer Server delivers file transfer technology to enable compliance with global security regulations including PCI/DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, SOX, GDP, and BASEL I, II & III. Files are protected while in transit, using standard secure HTTPS, FTPS, and SFTP protocols, and at rest, using FIPS 140-2 validated 256-bit AES encryption.

It provides guaranteed delivery (non-repudiation, file integrity checking, and fail-safe transmission), encryption key management, single sign-on from all supported clients (including mobile devices), while eliminating storage of data in the DMZ. Centralized visibility, control and reports for auditing of user and events log data is essential for effective compliance. Integration with existing IT security infrastructure provides additional security and reduces administrative overhead.

3. Automated File Movement for Enhanced Productivity and Security

MOVEit Central enables automation of repetitive file-based business and administrative tasks. Automated file transfer services can also eliminate the need for any external access to the trusted network by retrieving files from partner FTP servers and moving encrypted files to the DMZ for external retrieval. MOVEit Central works with any FTP or MFT server including WS_FTP Server, MOVEit File Transfer DMZ Server and MOVEit Cloud.

4. Cloud-Base File Transfer Services for Cost-Managed Compliance
