Progress is pleased to announce MOVEit 2021.1, with incremental feature improvements that extend accessibility, scalability, and usability in the industry’s leading secure Managed File Transfer (MFT) software.
At Progress, we believe that technology can help people achieve more when it magnifies the abilities of those who use it. With that aim in mind, MOVEit 2021.1 now conforms with WCAG, the global standard in digital accessibility guidelines for making websites accessible to all. WCAG 2.1 defines how to make web content more accessible to people with disabilities including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, language, learning, and neurological. MOVEit 2021.1 now includes, for example, text alternatives to any non-text images as well as captions for audio content. This kind of accessibility is becoming more important every day, and Progress is being recognized for its efforts in this area.
“In recent years, web and mobile app accessibility has become increasingly important to enterprises for business and ethical reasons,” said Darin Stahl, Principal Research Advisor, Info-Tech Research Group. “We applaud Progress for continuing to innovate new ways to integrate and add accessibility into their offerings and equip users with the technologies needed to improve web accessibility for all.”
In addition to offering a secure MFT solution that further enables ease of access and advances digital inclusion, MOVEit 2021.1 also makes improvements in scalability and usability, with the addition of significant capabilities such as:
- New MySQL Database
A new and more robust MySQL database engine for MOVEit Transfer and MOVEit Automation that improves availability and supportability of the deployment.
- Simultaneous Task Runs Count Update –
MOVEit Automation administrators can set the Maximum Running Tasks limit to above 100 (subject to licensing). This update ensures that customers performing enterprise-level workloads can achieve maximum throughput.
- Support for Embedded Images in HTML Emails – MOVEit Automation now supports JPEG and PNG-format embedded images in HTML-formatted emails. Task creators now have the option to include images in emails when adding Send Email as a Next Action in Traditional and Synchronization tasks, Send Email as a step element in Advanced tasks, or as a destination email attachment in Traditional and Advanced tasks.
Progress continues to improve MOVEit to make it the easiest to use and the most secure MFT solution available. Stay tuned for more useful and exciting updates from the MOVEit team.
