Ipswitch has announced the availability of the MOVEit DMZ managed file transfer server.

Featuring person-to-person capabilities, the company claimed that version 7.0 is optimised to give organisations a powerful solution to encrypt, control, authenticate and manage files moving internally and externally.

It also offers an optional Ad Hoc Transfer module, which enables secure person-to-person file transfer using a web browser or Microsoft Outlook. According to Ipswitch, its Ad Hoc Transfer module not only allows users to seamlessly share information without sacrificing productivity, it also allows companies to stay firmly within compliance of their auditing policies particularly those around email/email attachment retention and discovery.

Jonathan Lampe, vice president of product management at Ipswitch, said: “We're setting a new standard for managed file transfer, delivering to organisations the visibility and controls they need, while making it easier than ever for end-users to securely transfer files of any size. The Outlook plug-in provides a seamless employee experience as they interact with people inside or outside the organisation.”
