The file sharing habits of employees can be risky but is driven by their desire to get work done. The business need and IT desire to control file sharing is equally important. Fortunately, companies don’t have to choose between risky behavior and productivity. Using secure managed file transfer technology, employees can get the convenience, ease-of-use, and speed they need while IT and the business get the control, visibility, security and compliance they need.

A big frustration of many employees is that they have problems sending very large files to other people, both inside and outside of their company. Often times IT has placed file size restrictions on email without providing an alternate solution for getting that really big (and often company-confidential) file to someone else.
So while IT has successfully relieved the burden from the email server, they have subsequently created a situation where employees need to scramble to find their own method for sending that large file such as USB drive, DVD, personal email accounts or file sharing website – All of which are outside of the control and visibility of IT, not to mention this adds extra security risk to the company.
In fact, Ipswitch’s recent survey uncovered that over 90% of IT and security executives admitted to using thumb drives and other external devices to move data. And nearly 70% said that they have no visibility into files outside of their organization.
The new MOVEit DMZ Ad Hoc Transfer module enables secure person-to-person file transfer using a Web browser or Microsoft Outlook. Unlike other software and services that are currently in the market today, Ipswitch’s 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.
