Secure Copy

The Safe, Fast, Easy Way to Migrate Data

Secure Copy is an automated data migration solution that easily copies files and folders, NTFS security, file shares, local users and groups and compressions settings – whether migrating to a new server, consolidating file servers or moving to a NAS/SAN solution.

Now administrators and IT staff can migrate data in a shorter amount of time and run the reports necessary to effectively manage their data projects.


  • Migrate – Migrate not only files, but “critical metadata that works behind the scenes,” including: files, folders, local users & groups, NTFS permissions, printers, shares, attributes, settings, ownership, updated SID history. Secure Copy also ensures that security and configurations on the target server match the source server. Learn more »
  • Control – Control the data migration process at “every turn,” allowing the migration to work around the end user instead of the end user working around the data migration. To mitigate the risk of network downtime, administrators can control thread count with “multi-threading,” control bandwidth with “bandwidth throttling,” and overcome locked files with “administrator override.”  Learn more »
  • Automate – Manage migrations with a “set it and forget it mentality,” while still accomplishing other IT tasks. Run migrations in multiple phases, schedule migrations, execute migrations from the command line, templatize migrations, import jobs and launch tasks pre or post migration. Secure Copy’s update utilities allow administrators to update user and file information: home paths and printers will point to the target instead of the source, preventing IT staff from having to update each user account in Active Directory.

  • Report – Manage data migration projects with a wide variety of reports, to ensure a job well done or catch a problem that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. Secure Copy’s reports include copied files, failed jobs, migration analyses, skipped files and easy-to-scan dashboards. Learn more »
