Easy to set up with good logging and auditing features

A good file automation service with great additional features
Our primary use case for this solution is file automation. We receive many files and use MOVEit to automate how we receive them, where they go and how they appear at their destination. We maintain it on a server, creating Host connection points which can work with SFTP, Sharefiles, Azure, etc. It's…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The user-friendly interface has made it easy for fresh users to adopt it."
"JSCAPE's automation can obliterate manual file transfer processes, salvaging precious time and vanquishing the chances of errors."
"The JSCAPE MFT Server offers support for diverse protocols such as FTP(S), SFTP, SCP, AFTP, OFTP, and TFPT."
"Triggers are something that is very useful as they automate the use of boilerplate code, and we can define certain functionality of certain tasks also."
"JSCAPE provides high-level data encryption, which can help us share confidential and time-sensitive data across our global partners without any hassle."
"Automating and managing the file transfer using JSCAPE has decreased the manual interventions necessary and increased the organization's efficiency and productivity."
"The speed of transferring large datasets is super quick, which allows us to work on multiple tasks at a time."
"The tool can transfer files of any size and type without any issue."
"The automation is generally very simple that helps with operational efficiency. Since we mainly created interfaces and scheduled transfers, the tool itself handled the file transfer automation."
"Offers a large collection of very good path planning algorithms."
"The most valuable feature of MOVEit is the upload speed."
"I admire its ability to transfer really large files. One of the files that we transferred was 70 gigs. We didn't try anything larger than that, but so far, whenever somebody came to us to process a really large file, we were able to do it successfully. It can handle large files. That is one thing that I like about Automation."
"The convenience of renaming files and using time stamps to segregate them has been very valuable."
"The renaming and timestamp features are great."
"The log findings and troubleshooting on MOVEit are pretty easy. When you go to the logs, it clearly tells you what time a transfer happened, what time it failed, what is the source path, what is the destination path, and what is the failure reason. It's pretty straightforward."
"It satisfies our requirements but they don't do new improvements as per the market."


"The product's pricing needs improvement."
"The JSCAPE team could create detailed documents or blogs on how to troubleshoot certain errors that come over in integration with existing environment tools."
"Improving the error handling feature can help users to identify and resolve issues more quickly and efficiently."
"The documentation part can be improved to be more precise for beginners to understand the advanced features of the tool."
"The initial setup and configuration are time-consuming."
"Database crashing was seen whenever there was an overload."
"The user interface (UI) could be improved."
"Providing initial guidance would help new users to understand the UI."
"At times, we had connection issues with MOVEit, and it had a tendency to reboot without any reason."
"If the transfers are more or the file size is big, it takes more time. It doesn't have much capacity to process multiple files at the same time. It can get stuck or take a lot of time to process the files."
"It would be beneficial to include a feature that allows you to hide items and not be locked out if someone has made too many password attempts."
"It takes some time to learn and understand how the solution functions."
"Since I have to monitor two times a day, it would be nice if they have script templates."
"Communication can be improved between the product owners and users."
"The initial setup is a bit difficult."
"We have had some challenges. Earlier when we were setting it up, a component called gateway, which runs in the DMV, was not working as expected. It was going down very often. That means most of our vendors were not able to connect using SFTP because that service was down. We had to put in a lot of monitoring to make sure if that goes down, there is some visibility instantaneously so that our system admins can go and do a restart."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The software is expensive compared to other vendors."
"When compared to other products I've used, I believe MoveIt is worth the money someone might pay to use it."
"I haven't really priced out many other products like this, but I feel it's reasonable. Their upgrade support after hours was going to be $6,000. I just made the decision to wing it and just do it during business hours and call support if there was a problem."
"It's cost-effective."
"Technical support is only available with a paid license."
