Enhanced Security, 24/7 Business Continuity,
and Consistent Client UI

MOVEit™ helps streamline routine administrative tasks and relieves security stress via integration to more security systems—including Data Loss/Leakage Prevention (DLP) and Identity Provider (IdP) systems. Compatibility with Neverfail IT Continuity Engine enables 24/7 file transfer operations in the event of system failure or entire datacenter loss. And support for single sign-on authentication and UI updates for consistent user experience help drive user adoption.

  • Integration to IT security infrastructure streamlines routine admin tasks and relieves security stress
  • Seamless integration with Neverfail IT Continuity Engine enables 24/7 business continuity and satisfies regulatory requirements for file backup
  • Single sign-on (SSO) and consistent user interface (UI) drives user adoption
  • Updated system support

Integration with Neverfail IT Continuity Engine enables 24/7 business continuity

MOVEit Managed File Transfer System offers expanded integration to DLP and IdP systems to meet your organization’s goal for continuous improvement of security to meet compliance and data safety.

Monitor and control movement of sensitive data transferred by MOVEit via ICAP-standard integration to leading DLP software:

  • IT-approved, policy-based method to control transfer of sensitive files
  • Robust integration provides control over disposition (eg. blocked or quarantined) of policy-offending files by user or group
  • Integrates with DLP systems via quick step-by-step approach
  • End-users alerted to offending files within the MOVEit UI
  • Supported DLP systems: RSA, Symantec, and McAfee

Centrally manage user authentication via SAML 2.0 integration to leading identity providers (IdP) systems:

  • Reduces time required for management of user credentials via central management within a single IdP system
  • New option for user management in addition to existing: MOVEit built-in user database, any user database accessible via the LDAP, Secure LDAP or RADIUS Server protocols (including Microsoft Active Directory or IAS, Tivoli Access Manager, and ODBC-compliant databases)
  • Support for Microsoft ADFS, Shibboleth, and Onelogin

Integration with Neverfail IT Continuity Engine enables 24/7 business continuity

Guided implementation process significantly reduces cost and time for MOVEit Managed File Transfer System disaster recovery and failover. 

  • Neverfail IT Continuity Engine offers a guided approach to implementing MOVEit disaster recovery to disparate geographic locations or failover within a single datacenter 
  • Requires Neverfail IT Continuity Engine license and a MOVEit Managed File Transfer System Disaster Recovery license

Turnkey failover offers automated or manual failover with minimal loss of file transfer service

  • Protects against the impact of hardware or application failure
  • Real-time replication of data to a ‘hot-standby’ DR/failover server ensures file transfer services are always available
  • Fully automated failover with Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) of less than a minute and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) of seconds

Failover rules monitor performance metrics on production server and can perform switchover to a hot-standby before downtime
