MOVEit product overview

What is MOVEit?

MOVEit's flexible architecture combines secure file transfer with reporting, workflow automation, and multi-layered security features. MOVEit Cloud then offers the same functionality of MOVEit Transfer with the centralized convenience of HIPAA, PCI, GLBA and FFIEC-compliant, web hosted deployment. Enterprise users can observe, schedule and control business-critical file transfer tasks through a central system, protecting sensitive information as it moves between users, systems, customers or partners.

Key benefits of using MOVEit

  • Beyond PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC and GLBA compliance, get FIPS 140-2 validated AES-256 cryptography, user authorization and authentication, delivery confirmations and more


  • Control how transfers are made and by whom while tracking the movements and making transactions visible, securing with encryption during transit, plus running customizable reports for audit trailing etc


  • Data and file transfers can be controlled by logic-based workflows that guarantee delivery, PGP encryption at rest and granular access controls – all without the need for programming skills and additional IT expertise


  • Secure Folder Sharing provides end users with an easy way to share files securely using a familiar drag-and-drop user interface

    Overall we have had a very good experience with MOVEit. Our secretaries appreciate the ability to send and receive data securely.

    With MOVEit Transfer and Automation setup in a high availability configuration, we experience very good uptime and reliable transfer of incoming and outgoing files.

    This is a product that gets the job done. It has the security features that makes our Core Provider comfortable and is affordable enough for a company our size to implement.

    Using java or flash plugins is horrible for users. The emails look outdated as well.

    Some times you need to find files for a specific date but because MoveIt sorts by name it make it hard to find files in large file repositories.

    Top notch products and company.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    A consistent and dependable platform for worldclass managed file transfer.

    Pros

    I give Ipswitch and their products the highest marks in all categories. They are very strong and consistent in all area's and are what I like to call "the full meal deal".

    Cons

    The looming threat that they could go public someday and risk losing that personal touch we have become accomstomed with.

    MOVEit does exactly what we need it to do.

    Reviewed a month ago

    We have been very pleased with MOVEit. It is relatively inexpensive and give us exactly what we need. Prior to MOVEit we had file transfer tasks housed on multiple servers around the organization and each one of these transfers was custom scripted. We've used MOVEit to centralize all file transfers to a central location that is managed by a team that is well versed in our data governance policies....

    Pros

    MOVEit is extremely simple to use but still offers robust and extensive functionality. We currently have about 1500 file transfer and/or manipulation tasks setup in MOVEit. Most of these are scheduled and run without human intervention. It is a stable product that rarely has issues. In the 5+ years we've owned it we've only had one instance where we needed a patch from support. MOVEit drag and drop task builder allows the team to setup a new task in a matter of minutes.

    Cons

    There's not much we don't like about MOVEit. But it would be nice to have a smoother transfer of tasks from a testing environment to production. We've also builtbri

    Good start but a little lacking

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    Managed file transfer is something that can be difficult to do an even more difficult to do right. MOVEit is a good start and they offer 80 percent of any features that a company may need. The ability to finely control the flow of documents that are transmitted to us was the best feature.

    Cons

    They were not able to handle a very high volume of files being transferred. This was a deal breaker for us but they were good otherwise.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for the honest feedback back. I have passed this information on to our Product Management group.

    MOVEit has completely gotten out of the way and allowed me to do what I need to do simply

    Reviewed 15 days ago

    File moving and SFTP. MOVEit is a simple solution for getting everything where it needs to be. I've used MOVEit Automation more and more as things have come up that I can use it for, which is a lot. We've grown into it being the first choice for much of our file automation that just needs to work and be a quick turnaround.

    Pros

    It's simple and powerful so it doesn't get in your way but allows you to affect what you are doing to a large degree. I'm was able to get this set up in all out environments within 1 month tested and functioning. I also like that MOVEit Automation has allowed us to continue creating tasks as we get more advanced with it.

    Cons

    Database views do not exist by default which would be helpful for reporting. Reporting in general could be given a feature upgrade. It does pull reports but it's not a simple process and the ability to tie into something like Power BI is not there. Even having several views setup in the database by default would make this quicker and easier to get setup for reporting. When something touches as many files as MOVEit Transfer and MOVEit Automation do you want to be able to report on metrics from it immediately
