MoveItSecurely is a secure file transfer solution available to MnSCU employees.

MoveItSecurely will be used to transfer files securely, as the software name implies, and also to transfer large files that are too large to send via email. This system is designed to send files securely to both internal and external recipients and replaces the transfer of sensitive data via email. Sensitive data refers to Social Security numbers, grades, drivers license information, etc. If you are uncertain whether data is sensitive, please use MoveItSecurely. This software is not intended to replace network drives that are currently used to share files among departments or programs. To access MoveItSecurely, go to https://moveitsecurely.mnscu.edu. If you have any questions, please contact your local campus Computer Help Center.

An on-demand video training resource on MoveItSecurely is available on the Information Security Office website at http://its.mnscu.edu.
