What’s New in MOVEit DMZ?

Ipswitch MOVEit DMZ New Features

Ipswitch MOVEit DMZ has a range of exciting new features, designed to ensure secure, user friendly mission-critical file, message and data transfers.

Visibility, Management and User Experience

Integrated SysLog Auditing

MOVEit DMZ can now send audit messages directly to SysLog servers. Administrators can see all interactions of any specific user or group within context, log all activities, and use integrated SysLog and Windows Event Log auditing to send full log details to a central data repository and/or an enterprise system management suite.

Ad Hoc Transfer

The Ad Hoc Transfer module enables secure person-to-person file transfer using a Web browser or Microsoft Outlook. As a result, organizations can improve the way they manage file transfer interactions and apply encryption, access control and authentication, digital loss prevention, and content management.

Enhanced multi-tenancy support

New features within MOVEit DMZ now allow system administrators to support either “domain-based” or “user-based” multi-tenancy.

Domain-based multi-tenancy occurs when multiple domains such as “moveit.company-one.com” and “ftps.agency-two.com” are hosted on the same system. To support domain-based multi-tenancy, MOVEit DMZ allows system administrators to set up additional listening ports with their own server certificates and provides a switch to allow multiple reuses of the same username on the MOVEit DMZ system.

User-based multi-tenancy occurs when a single domain such as “midmz.allorgs.com” hosts multiple organizations and usernames unique to a single organization are used to select and access different organizations. To support username-based multi-tenancy, MOVEit DMZ allows system administrators to reuse a single FTP/S, SFTP and HTTP/S interface for all organizations and provides a switch to ensure that individual usernames are unique across an entire MOVEit DMZ system.

Automatic user provisioning without emailed passwords

End users are sent time-sensitive links to set their own passwords, links that expire after a designated period of time elapses. This feature eliminates the need to email any passwords during end-user provisioning, including temporary end users created with the Ad Hoc Transfer module.

Antivirus integration with Symantec and Sophos ICAP solutions

Real-time integration ensures interoperability with existing Sophos and Symantec deployments because MOVEit DMZ communicates with them via the universal Internet Content Adaptation Protocol (ICAP):

Ensuring that only clean files enter your environment – files are scanned and validated as clean and free of viruses, trojans, malware and other malicious threats before uploaded to MOVEit DMZ

Taking the following actions if an infected file is detected:

  • Rejects the transfer of the infected file
  • Alerts end user that upload failed due to virus detection
  • Logs the virus, timestamp, the scan engine, version and definition tag
  • Reports the list of infected files that have been detected during a specified time period

Enhanced web-based user interface

Several usability improvements have been made to the MOVEit DMZ web interface, including:

New modern-looking icons and buttons

  • Streamlined end user experience for sign-on, working with file/folders, and sign-off
  • New “Session Manager” will be available to administrators from the home page
  • All password set and reset screens will now summarize the password rules
  • Group membership information can be used in custom XSL templates

FTP/SSH 'blind' downloads

End users can sign on to the FTP/S and SFTP interfaces of MOVEit DMZ and download a specific file without performing a directory listing.
