Capita Automates File Transfer Activity with Ipswitch MOVEit

Business process leader trusts MOVEit and HANDD to secure and automate file transfers, assure SLAs and gain visibility and control

London, UK – April 22, 2014 – Capita document & information services has implemented Ipswitch’s MOVEit Managed File Transfer (MFT) System to centralise and automate processes for millions of daily file transfers. MOVEit was deployed at Capita by specialist data security integrator and Ipswitch channel partner HANDD Business Solutions.   


Capita document & information services (CDIS) forms part of Capita plc, the UK’s leading provider of business outsourcing and integrated professional support services with 2013 annual revenue exceeding £3,851 million, it is responsible for the secure transfer of large volumes of sensitive data on behalf of its diverse client base.   


CDIS needed a centralised MFT system to automate the transfer of confidential mailroom data as well as sensitive client records such as medical, HR and pensions related data. Additionally, it required comprehensive reporting and complete file transfer visibility to maintain compliance with relevant laws, regulations and ISO standards and to meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and internal group data management security standards.   


Since deployment, MOVEit has become pivotal to CDIS’s file transfer strategy, handling millions of files daily. The system has removed manual file transfer processes and replaced them with automated rule-based transfers run at regular intervals. Crucially, MOVEit has enabled CDIS to comfortably meet all internal and external policies, regulations, guidelines and customer agreements. The business also uses Ipswitch’s encrypted FTP client software, WS-FTP Professional, for large ad-hoc transfers of secure personal data, health records, client-confidential materials and government files.   


“With MOVEit as part of our enterprise IT system, we can confidently exceed our company, customer and industry expectations for secure managed file delivery,” said Anthony Lamb, Operations Director for CDIS. “We selected MOVEit for its capability to support and streamline our existing processes, increasing our productivity and efficiency, and enabling us to robustly audit data movement.”   


“CDIS’s use of MOVEit to transfer millions of sensitive files a day is a testimony to the system’s ease-of-use for employees and the audibility, automation, scalability and security it gives to IT processes and resources.” said Loic Triger, VP international sales for Ipswitch File Transfer.   


Ian Davin, CEO for HANDD Business Solutions said: “We’ve worked with CDIS for many years and know its IT team understands the major security benefits of automation. When it came to evaluating Managed File Transfer systems, we knew that automation and user-friendly control would be priorities for the team. Ipswitch’s MOVEit was an obvious choice. It ticks every box and automates without burdening IT.”
