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.

Pros
Tons of functionality, security features are pretty good, logs and reports are nice, and it's usually easy to setup and upgrade. It can be run on premise which is great, and has features like an Outlook plugin that people like to use. Technical Support for the program has been great every time we need them, which is always over a mySQL database issue.

Cons
The user interface and functionality is lacking and we complain about it. It's older style, not HTML5 yet, and just looks outdated. Using java or flash plugins is horrible for users. The emails look outdated as well. Clients complain sometimes about how difficult it is to navigate and get their files. We have used this product for 6+ years without a major interface update, and it needs one.

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.

Response from Ipswitch


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

Pros
Being able to bypass email for sending large files was our primary goal.The software is very easy for sending or receiving large files that would otherwise not be allowed via email. The software has great security systems in place that stop bots and brute force attacks. Many different connectivity options.

Cons
Auditing is not explicit to show what actions were performed, only an "update" by a username with a date time stamp. Even if one clicks "OK" and no change was made, it is audited as an "update"

it' used daily - both the DMZ and Central. Central we have used to automate a lot of tasks that previously were done manually and it's been a great benefit to the business as well as to the support team.

Pros
Moveit Central - ease of use and powerful functionality. moveit DMZ - secure and easy to setup/use. Provides reporting and good functionality.

Cons
It can be a little complicated to setup. Best to plan it out before starting as its hard to make changes after wards.

Secure file movement, control, and reporting.

Pros
The interface is easy to use and creation of tasks is straightforward. Support typically responds quickly. Alerting and viewing the history of files moved and job outcomes are very useful.

Cons
There are some minor features that could be included instead of having to create custom VB scripts, such as file counts. Job auditing could be more specific as to what was changed.

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
I like the ability to schedule jobs and have them record what is moved in a database where we can see historically what has happened with our customers' import/export tasks. The ability to email on success/failure events and the flexibility of task configuration is great.

Cons
The upgrade process between versions is not as easy as I would like. We encountered multiple problems and had to get professional services to assist. License configuration with regards to PGP encryption has also been problematic and overly complicated, but I hear that has been streamlined for newer customers.

Easy of use, quick reporting, auditing exists at a very high level.

Pros
Configuration of new/existing tasks is much easier than scripting everything. GUI is simple and easy to use.

Cons
Auditing is not explicit to show what actions were performed, only an "update" by a username with a date time stamp. Even if one clicks "OK" and no change was made, it is audited as an "update".

Pros
It is very simple to create a task and see task runs and file moves. It is easy to setup new hosts as well as PGP and SSH keys as well.

Cons
If you have the MoveIT Central version without Advanced Reporting, the audit trail isn't that helpful.

Pros
The ease of customizing file transfer jobs and the overall features of the application make it a very useful utility. The Outlook plugin is very handy as well.

Cons
At this time, there is really nothing that I don't like about the application. It does take some time to learn the interface but, after that, everything is great.

Review Source: Capterra

Simple, amazing, fast, reliable, secured and any-size of a file can be transferred.

Pros
With Moveit, file transferring has just gone to a new level. Software is great when it comes to sharing of larger files which are not allowed to share by email directly. Different types of platforms such as windows, macs, androids and ios can be connected with the software. It provides a great security to all the files we are sharing.

Cons
If Moveit can develop a feature just to drag and drop files we need to share, that would be great. Emails allows this feature and it is better it to be incorporated with the app.
