One of our main goals with MOVEit 2018 was to enhance interoperability with other services and applications. That means more powerful workflows, and minimizing manual efforts and development time. MOVEit 2018's new integration capabilities, including inbound REST APIs for performing administrative tasks of MOVEit Transfer and MOVEit Automation, will help IT teams develop more powerful workflows faster. Whil outbound REST APIs now allow MOVEit Automation to easily integrate with third-party applications. PowerShell scripting has also been added to MOVEit Automation. This allows customers to use powerful scripting tools, seamlessly integrated into their MOVEit Automation tasks. PowerShell can also be used to perform general administrative tasks. MOVEit Automation can also now access Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) buckets as native hosts, allowing the use of cloud storage as either the source or destination for transfers.

Secure Folder Sharing


To address the risk of a data breach through the unauthorized use of email, consumer-grade file sharing solutions to transmit sensitive data, MOVEit 2018 features a new Secure Folder Sharing capability and an easy-to-use desktop client. This new functionality will let IT groups extend the adoption of secure managed file transfer to a broad base of end users through a convenient, easy-to-use file sharing and collaboration capability that assures data security, visibility and audit trails. The new Windows and Mac compatible drag-and-drop MOVEit Client enables encrypted, centrally tracked ad hoc transfer capabilities to all users with zero training.

MOVEit Cloud Expanded to the EU

In conjunction with the release of MOVEit 2018,  Ipswitch has also extended our MFT-as-a-service offering, MOVEit Cloud, to the EU, enabling an additional General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) ready deployment possibility to EU-based customers. Ipswitch has established primary and secondary MOVEit Cloud datacenters on Microsoft Azure public cloud sites located in the EU. Customers can take advantage of the flexibility and OPEX budgeting benefits provided by the cloud without sacrificing any of the security and reliability of MOVEit Transfer.
