MOVEit Cloud: Managed File Transfer just got better

MOVEit Cloud delivers on both business user and IT requirements while offering compliant file transfer as a managed service to stay on top of industry requirements and statutes. Employees can easily share files and messages with other people and groups, while IT professionals can confidently administer the exchange of files between systems and people. MOVEit Cloud takes care of the day-to-day operational compliance of a managed file transfer solution. Not only does MOVEit Cloud provide flexibility, predictability and scalability; it helps you achieve the results that matter most: increased employee productivity, a guaranteed service level (SLA), and reduced data risk by increasing visibility, control and security. MOVEit Cloud drastically reduces the scope of compliance audits with Progress’s expert-managed, common security framework.

Security You Can Trust

In an era of high-visibility security violations, MOVEit Cloud leads the industry in security and integrity. MOVEit Cloud protects your most valuable asset – your data – by incorporating essential security measures for cloud services such as end-to-end encryption including storage encryption (“data-at-rest”); non-repudiation; FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography; intrusion detection and vulnerability scans; full control over user access and permissions; centralized user authentication and single sign-on via SAML 2.0 integration to IdP systems; separation of administrator duties; audit trails of all activities; separate encryption keys for each customer and each file; and only users you authorize have access to the contents of your files.

MOVEit Cloud is the first managed file transfer (MFT) service provider to fully support HIPAA, HITECH and HIPAA Omnibus standards, PCI DSS certification, Common Criteria certification and OWASP Top Ten list of security vulnerabilities. MOVEit Cloud is also GDPR Ready. As a result, your security, compliance, and risk professionals can easily and consistently implement and enforce corporate IT policies. Note that no software or service can guarantee that your use of that facility is compliant with any regulation and it is the responsibility of the user to comply with regulations as required.

Predictability You Can Count On

Today’s organizations need maximum uptime to meet SLAs, ensure mission-critical transfers don’t fail, provide superior customer service, and deliver “always-on” access to MFT solutions. MOVEit Cloud provides all of these and more with a 99.9% uptime SLA (outside of scheduled maintenance). MOVEit Cloud incorporates business continuity and disaster recovery assurances and leverages a highly available load-balanced web-farm environment to minimize downtime and prevent data loss, even in the event of a major unplanned service failure or disaster. MOVEit Cloud is hosted in a geographically dispersed server infrastructure complete with continuous datacenter replication to ensure that strict uptime and SLAs are met.
