Milwaukee County, Wisconsin Standardizes Data File Transfer
BEDFORD, Mass., December 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS), the leading provider of products to develop, deploy and manage high impact applications, today announced that Milwaukee County, Wisconsin has implemented Progress® MOVEit® Secure Managed File Transfer (MFT) to centralize dozens of disparate file transfer systems and serve its many constituencies more efficiently.
Milwaukee County serves nearly one million residents of all backgrounds and ages through various government departments including health and social services, housing and urban development, parks and recreation, transportation, public safety, courts and more. However, the county’s information management services division knew it needed a new file transfer system. Each team and department in the division had developed its own set of platforms and siled solutions for collecting and transferring large amounts of data. Their ideal platform would not only support the transfer of critical data and reduce inefficiencies, but would make the data traceable and keep it secure to comply with regulations such as HIPAA.
“Moving files securely within and between local, state, and federal government departments and agencies is essential for the business, as these files typically contain extremely sensitive citizen data,” said John Ainsworth, SVP, Core Products, Progress. “With MOVEit, Milwaukee County can securely configure, deploy and manage data and information exchanges from a central location, while tracking and ensuring their delivery. “
After a thorough evaluation of several MFT software vendors, Milwaukee County chose Progress MOVEit because it gave them the ability to quickly integrate and integrate a wide variety of disparate data systems and processes, minimizing complexity and allowing more centralized management. Its extraordinary ease of use turned out to be particularly appreciable. Each team was happy that they no longer had to manually transfer files or spend time writing code in their applications to handle file transfers between environments and systems.
“MOVEit is a solution that we can actually use. We were pleasantly surprised with its ease of use and richness of features, ”said Ryan Schmidt, IT Manager, Applications, Milwaukee County. “Some solutions promise everything under the sun but are so complex to configure that you never really discover their potential. With MOVEit, right after installation, we just started using it. It was quick, easy and transparent.
Going forward, the team plans to triple their use of MOVEit-managed file transfer over the next year and plans to explore the advanced workflow automation capabilities of Progress® MOVEit® Automation and Progress®. MOVEit® Transfer for secure collaboration, adding more modules as the need arises.
