Ipswitch Releases eBook on Adhering to Security and Compliance Requirements in Today’s Collaborative Work Environment

“Increasing Collaboration at Work While Reducing Security Risk” eBook Now Available for Download

BURLINGTON, Mass. – Dec. 11, 2018Ipswitch®, producer of award-winning and easy-to-use secure file transfer and network management software, has released the new eBook, “Increasing Collaboration at Work While Reducing Security Risk.” The ebook outlines how IT and security teams can build a healthy and collaborative business environment for employees while also embracing the best practices in data security.

Teamwork is essential in a happy, functional office, and increasing collaboration should always be a priority. But without the proper precautions in place, an open, collaborative environment can also be an insecure one, especially where sensitive data is involved. And today, sensitive data doesn’t just mean credit card numbers and medical data. We are living in the age of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other data protection legislation like the new California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, where even a sales spreadsheet with phone numbers and email addresses can cause massive compliance issues, fines and security problems, if handled improperly.

“There should be a happy and secure balance when it comes to collaboration,” said Kevin Conklin, Senior Vice President Marketing at Ipswitch. “IT wants to make sure everyone can collaborate effectively to get their job done quickly and effectively. Where sensitive data is concerned, consumer-grade file sharing solutions simply won’t do. A managed filed transfer tool like Ipswitch MOVEit® can secure your data with end-to-end encryption in transit and at rest as well as access controls and audit trails that allow you to manage exactly who is allowed to access and transfer sensitive data.”

MOVEit’s new Secure Folder Sharing capability removes bottlenecks by letting users create their own secure shared folders for collaboration with anyone, in or outside of their network, while administrators keep full control of permissions and audit logs. Flexible deployment options can make using Secure Folder Sharing as simple as drag-and-drop folder transfers on Windows and MacOS, allowing increased collaboration with unlimited internal and external users, with all of the standard security features of MOVEit, including a tamper-evident audit log and granular permissions for file visibility.
