IT-Approved Method for
Employees to Send Sensitive Files

MOVEit Ad Hoc Transfer gives end-users a secure and regulatory-compliant way, using their browser or Outlook, to quickly send messages and files of any size to other people in a way that is visible and managed by IT.


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, access control and single sign-on authentication. It also provides reactive management technologies to help companies fully audit and report on all of these transactions.

The shared mailbox feature enables multiple users and groups to view and manage packages from a single mailbox. Using this feature client services teams can process packages from a common queue of documents. Any employee can delegate mailbox access during a temporary absence. Gain additional productivity with the shared mailbox capability.


External users can self-register with no IT intervention required, and get up and running quickly.

Benefits for File Senders

Quickly and Securely Send Files and Messages to Other People

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, complexity 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 view read status, receive read notifications, and “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 a 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.
