MOVEit is a new service available to Southern Illinois University students, faculty and staff that allows users to securely store and share files. Prior to the implementation of MOVEit, storing and sharing of files was handled in a variety of ways, including via public email, university email, sharing of flash drives and more; now, MOVEit allows for a standardized process managed by a single group, increasing security and minimizing the likelihood that information could potentially be compromised.
MOVEit offers both a web interface accessed from your browser and a Java-based program to upload and download files. The web interface allows you to send files to other users without leaving your browser, while the Java Upload/Download Wizard allows you to transfer larger files more quickly. Regardless of what method you choose to use, faculty/staff will be given 10 GB of storage space while students will be allowed 5 GB to use with MOVEit.
