MOVEit EZ is a unique secure transfer client that moves files on a scheduled, automated, firewall-friendly basis with minimal user involvement. One of the things that make MOVEit EZ unique is its use of the HTTPS protocol. This enables MOVEit EZ to communicate through a single firewall port. This is the same port that web browsers use for secure connections, so it is almost always open. In comparison, clients that use the FTP over SSL protocol require use of a large number of firewall ports, none of which are typically open. Getting and keeping them open can be an ongoing operational challenge, especially when the firewalls belong to business partners and customers.
This MOVEit EZ is a Windows-based file transfer client that is easy to install, use, and support - and is very secure. MOVEit EZ is intended to automatically transfer files on a scheduled basis to and from a single server. MOVEit EZ is designed for quick and easy installation. It comes with configuration settings that work 'as is' in most situations, but can be pre-configured and/or re-branded for custom use. MOVEit EZ can be run in the foreground or as a service. A MOVEit EZ icon in the Windows system tray blinks and changes to alert the user to the status and outcome of file transfers.
MOVEit EZ can manage as many as fifteen automated file transfer tasks, each with its own schedule and set of rules for handling files. Each can be used to upload or download files between one or more local folders and one or more folders on a server. Files are transferred after they appear in the appropriate folder. There are no limits on the number, type, or size of the files sent, and there is no need to create, modify, or use any batch files or scripts.
MOVEit EZ is a relatively small program. It downloads quickly even over a dial-up connection. Unlike command-line secure file transfer clients that can be made to do scheduled, automated transfers, MOVEit EZ does not use scripts or batch files. MOVEit EZ has a set of default parameters that fit most end-user situations. This often enables end-users to simply click "OK" to quickly start files transferring on a scheduled, automated basis. For even less end-user involvement, certain communication parameters can be pre-configured before MOVEit EZ is made available to end-users.
Transfers take place on a scheduled basis. End-users can also transfer files 'on demand' by clicking on the "Run Task Now" option. End-users "Copy", "Send To" or "Save" files to a designated upload folder on their PC and MOVEit EZ then automatically moves them to a corresponding folder on a specific server. If files are waiting for the end-user in a designated download folder on that server, then MOVEit EZ will also automatically transfer them to a corresponding folder on their PC, and then automatically alert the end-user.
From MOVEit EZ's use of firewall-friendly HTTPS, to its default and pre-configured communication parameters and its scheduled and automated transfer capabilities, to the fact that it runs as a service and does not use scripts or batch files, MOVEit EZ saves valuable end-user and IT staff time compared to secure FTP clients.
MOVEit EZ uses industry-standard 128-bit key SSL transport encryption. There is no end-user involvement in the encryption/decryption process. There is no need to use PGP/OpenPGP or other third-party encryption programs. Files sent by MOVEit EZ will automatically be stored by the receiving the server using its built-in FIPS 140-2 certified 256-bit key AES encryption.
MOVEit EZ automatically creates and maintains two log files: a daily, end-user oriented log that records all transfers, successful and not; and a support staff oriented technical "debug" log that records each step of each transfer.
