Move-IT Secure File Transfer:The State of Maine uses MoveIT DMZ Enterprise from Ipswitch. Move-it allows for FTPS (ftp over explicit SSL) and SFTP (ftp over SSH) connections. In addition to the secure transmission of data, the data is stored securely on the server using its own folder and file structure making it independent of the operating systems' file system. Move-it DMZ has the capability for secure messaging and allows the ability to use active directory to authenticate clients. Data transmission is done either by using the ftp protocol or by the web using HTTPS. The first method requires the client to have ftp software. The latter method allows the client to connect using any web browser.

SQL Express Service is intended for small databases that do not require the level of support standard for full SQL Enterprise databases. These databases reside on servers in a controlled physical environment with managed updates, maintenance, storage, normal network file backup and disaster recovery services, but they do not benefit from extended service hours coverage, technical support or real time mirroring.
