Ipswitch File TransferOverview:

To get their work done, employees are circumventing IT by turning to new, web-based consumer services to send and receive files. While convenient for them, this creates a number of challenges related to control, visibility, and security. MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer resolves this conflict by giving both employees and IT what they need.

MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer:

  • Allows employees to send large and sensitive files securely
  • Uses Microsoft Outlook or a web browser for easy user adoption
  • Reduces email throughput and storage requirements
  • Provides the visibility, control, and security of an enterprise-class managed file transfer system
  • Available on-premise or in the cloud

Each and every day, billions of files are shared as employees send critical information to other people around the globe as part of their daily work. Email is the most popular tool for this collaboration, but unfortunately email solutions only allow companies to enforce a limited amount of procedures, such as encryption and file attachment policies. As a result, most organizations haven't done as much as they can to make file-sharing processes as fast, easy, and secure as possible, making file sharing a real risk… and a real opportunity for improvement.

Now organizations can enforce consistent policies and processes around person-to-person file transfers – attachment offloading, secure messaging, eDiscovery, and more – with MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer.

Securely and quickly send encrypted files and messages of any size to other people using your browser or Outlook. MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer not only gives companies unparalleled governance, but it also allows end users to share information, with anyone, in a fast, easy, secure, visible, and well managed way. With this enterprisestrength MFT solution, IT can address broad-scale, risky personal file sharing practices while meeting employees' requirements for ease of use.

Available both on premise and as a cloud deployment, and now available as a standalone offering, MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer enables organizations to manage person-to person file transfer interactions and proactively apply transparent end-to-end FIPS validated encryption, attachment offloading, secure messaging,and access control and authentication.

It also provides reactive management technologies to help companies fully audit and report on all of these transactions. It doesn't matter whether your file transfer interactions are spontaneous, impromptu, and last minute. MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer can improve the management and governance of various types of interactions, delivering powerful benefits for three important user groups: file senders, file recipients, and IT professionals.

Key Capabilities of MOVEIT Ad Hoc Transfer

  • Safely transfer large and sensitive files: With no email size limitations or restrictions, employees can transfer virtually any file while meeting IT requirements and standards. With the latest in security technologies, MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer encrypts email attachments in transit and at rest while meeting visibility and control requirements.
  • Leverage systems employees already use: Your employees can send and receive files using Microsoft Outlook or a simple web browser, making it easy to adopt. Maintain productivity, comply with your security policies, and avoid wasting time training your staff on new systems and processes.
  • Reduce email throughput and storage requirements: MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer eliminates email size limits by offloading attachments and sending them outside of the email system. The system reduces the costs, time, and headaches associated with managing oversized email attachments. Plus, it eliminates email failures and overflowing mailboxes and keeps end users happy and productive.
  • Provides the visibility, control, and security of an enterprise-class managed file transfer system: Now you can deploy just one system to handle both person-to-person and enterprise managed file transfer. Because MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer is part of Ipswitch’s Managed File Transfer system, you can take advantage of the most comprehensive Managed File Transfer system available. Get the visibility and control over your file transfers that IT and your business needs.


Benefits For File Senders

Quickly and Securely Send Files and Messages to Other People

Now there's a better option than insecure email, instant messenger, third-party software, thumb drives, or unsanctioned file transfer websites. Not only are these tools outside of the organization's control and often insecure, but they are also becoming increasingly restricted as companies seek to improve governance, visibility, and security of company information.

With MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer, authorized MOVEit users can securely transfer files or folders of files of any size and send secure messages to anyone in the world using either a Web browser or Microsoft Outlook. Users can send a package of files along with an optional secure message to an unlimited number of recipients – even those who are not MOVEit users. Receivers that are not currently configured can be optionally and automatically added to the system based on IT requirements for user expiration, password length, complecity and delivery requirements with no IT involvement. If configured, senders can easily customize security controls by creating recipient passwords as well as file expiration and download limits. Senders can also "recall" files after they have been sent so they are no longer available for download.

Benefits For File Recipients

Fast Notification and Simple Retrieval of Files

Recipients are sent an email notification the instant a MOVEit user sends them an file or a secure message. The email notification includes an embedded link to securely download the file or files, an optional note from the sender, and password requirements. This email message can be viewed in any email client or Webmail application, and the recipient only has to click the embedded link to access the files. Recipients can also securely send files of any size back to the original sender.

File recipients can retrieve files from their preferred Web browser – including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari for OSX, or Chrome – without the need to install any plug-ins or additional third-party software. Recipients don't even need to be a MOVEit user to be able to receive the file packages.

Benefits For IT

End-to-end Encryption, Attachment Offloading and Secure Messaging

By providing employees with an easy way to securely send files and secure messages to other people, MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer reduces employees' reliance on insecure email and third-party file transfer software and websites, not to mention thumb drives and DVDs since there are no file size limits.

This solution gives IT the visibility and control it needs to give the entire organization the data protection it requires. Additionally, Ad Hoc Transfer frees IT departments from the administrative burden related to provisioning users on the file transfer server, improves overall file transfer governance, and streamlines visibility, logging, and reporting of all file transfers for compliance and auditing purposes. With tamper-evident logging and complete package archiving, administrators can access and archive all transferred data including sender, receiver, read status, message and all attached files.

Ad Hoc Transfer is also extremely easy to set up and maintain. IT administrators can easily configure transfer settings and policies, including sender quotas, file-size limitations for attachments (if desired)and ad hoc transfers, file-delivery notifications, password policies, embedded link-naming conventions, and file time-to-live expiration rules.

Administrators can automate the remote installation of the Outlook plug-in and ActiveX browser wizard on end-user computers with the MSI installation package, using Active Directory Group Policy. The Ad Hoc Transfer module also removes the file attachment burden on the organization's email server and no software need be installed on the email server. This avoids bounced emails due to large file attachments and clogging recipients' inboxes with large files, thus improving the organization's server performance.

With all of this in place, there is virtually no ongoing administration or user management required to support dayto- day ad hoc file sharing, and that makes IT very happy – and productive, too.
