Ipswitch is also debuting Ipswitch MOVEit Complete, an all-in-one solution for secure Managed File Transfer, delivering the best value possible at the lowest total cost of ownership.

In addition, MOVEit 2016 contains the all new Ipswitch Gateway module allowing the MOVEit Transfer module to sit behind the firewall. Targeted to industries where IT teams may require multi-layered security, such as healthcare, financial services, insurance, retail, and government, Ipswitch Gateway acts as a proxy securely communicating with MOVEit Transfer installed behind the firewall of the internal network.

Regulations such as PCI, HIPAA, FISMA, and GDPR dictate security and process requirements that are interpreted by Risk and Compliance teams into internal policies to govern business and IT operations. As these regulations have evolved, internal policies are also evolving to require new layers of security between the public Internet and protected data. Ipswitch Gateway responds to these increasing demands by providing an intermediary function that is deployed in the DMZ network between the Internet and the company’s secured network. This enables file transfer, authentication and encrypted data storage activities performed by MOVEit Transfer to occur solely within the trusted secure network behind the firewall further protecting the enterprise from Internet threats. By deploying MOVEit Transfer with Ipswitch Gateway, IT teams can:

  • Ensure that no data ever resides in the DMZ portion of the network
  • Eliminate all exposure of secured networked resources and authorisation services to the DMZ network
  • Provide multi-layer data security with controlled access to user credentials stored inside the network trusted zone

James Lewis, Managing Director at Pro2col, comments: “Data protection regulations in the UK are in a state of flux. As such, it’s more important than ever for companies to adopt an intelligent, bullet-proof approach to moving digital data that minimises their exposure to risk. Companies therefore need software that is able to maintain compliance with fast changing data privacy and disclosure directives, while also protecting valuable, sensitive data from unauthorised access. As such, we welcome the launch of Ipswitch MOVEit 2016 and understand how important this latest version will be for all our customers.” Pro2col is a Gold Partner, the highest partner accreditation awarded by Ipswitch.

MOVEit Complete
To simplify IT teams’ Managed File Transfer needs, Ipswitch is introducing MOVEit Complete – an all-in-one Managed File Transfer solution which combines MOVEit Transfer, MOVEit Automation, Ipswitch Analytics and the newly introduced Ipswitch Gateway. This new package will be offered in three tiered editions: Standard, Professional and Premium.

“Ipswitch Gateway serves as an important proxy between inbound connections from the public network and your internal trusted network. This ensures that your transfers of sensitive data are protected behind multiple layers of security,” says Michael Hack, Senior Vice President, EMEA Operations, at Ipswitch. “Our customers are dealing with complicated compliance regulations every day and require a solution with the highest level of security possible for data transmission, one that’s compliant with PCI, HIPAA, FISMA and other critical industry regulations.”

New Editions
Ipswitch is also introducing new pricing and packaging editions to make it easier for IT teams to buy a solution that meets their exact requirements while increasing the value they receive from their investment. MOVEit Transfer (formerly MOVEit DMZ) and MOVEit Automation (formerly MOVEit Central) will now be offered in Standard, Professional and Premium editions. MOVEit Automation will also be offered in an additional edition, Basic, as an exciting entry point to the MOVEit product line.
