Likelihood to Recommend

Aspera Managed File Transfer

This is well suited in a high paced, collaborative work environment where a large volume of media needs to constantly be shared on a regular basis.I recommend this program if you need to share media with multiple partners, in smaller work settings this program might not be the best suited for media sharing.

  • Ipswitch MOVEit is very easy to use. Once a user logs into the website they can send a package or email to an other user or someone outside the organization. This has a similar look and feel to a web based email service.
  • For users that are not part of our organization Ipswitch MOVEit effortlessly can create a new account and provide that users with an email and activation instructions. IT does not need to be involved with setting up users.
  • Temporary users are controlled by a policy that will disable and remove accounts based on setting set by administrators. This is a great way to make sure old accounts are removed when not used.

Cons

  • The upload window doesnt stay on top of the web browsers. It kept getting lost if another browser tab was opened.
  • The system lacks ability to customize the due notifications when the upload/download is completed. The users should be able to choose if they want a sound notification or another way to be notified of large uploads/downloads that take time.
  • Multiple downloads of the same name (same file)have no distinct file names automatically given by the system to distinguish between them. I think the system should prompt an error message in that instance.

  • Drag and dropping of files to attached to packages.
  • I believe there is room for improvement when it comes to setting up folder and group security.
  • A better mobile app is absolutely needed. The current app lacks in features.

Alternatives Considered

Aspera Managed File Transfer racks up evenly against its' competitors. I use different programs to share and upload media to different affiliates, however this program seems to be one of the most popular in the industry. This could be due to the ease of use, and the fact that media is able to be shared in a very fast time frame.

Price point was a big reason. Ipswitch MOVEit has a lower initial price point than may of the other software options.
