BURLINGTON, Mass. – Apr. 1, 2019Ipswitch®, producer of award-winning and easy-to-use secure file transfer and network management software, has expanded its partnership agreement with Ingram Micro, one of the largest technology solution enablers, into the UK region. In November, the companies entered into a partnership agreement for the Middle East region. Now, channel partners and resellers in the UK have increased access to Ipswitch’s MOVEit® and WS_FTP® for secure file transfer as well as WhatsUp® Gold for network monitoring through Ingram Micro.

“We are delighted to further extend our partnership agreement with Ingram Micro to increase the reach of Ipswitch IT management solutions within the UK region,” said Sebastien Roques-Shaw, Sales Director EMEA at Ipswitch. “Ipswitch shares Ingram Micro’s focus of enhancing the success of its business partners and associates and is committed to delivering solutions that assure secure data sharing and high-performance infrastructures. We look forward to our continued partnership.”

Through this agreement, Ingram Micro is now authorized to distribute the Ipswitch solutions portfolio in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The partnership agreement may be expanded to additional regions in the future.

We’re dedicated to helping our partners create new routes to market and adding additional revenue streams to enable growth,” said Scott Murphy, Director of Cloud and Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro UK and Ireland. “As the threat of cyberattacks and data hacks grow, secure file sharing solutions are already at the top of end-users’ agendas and are in the minds of the C-suite as a matter of concern. Furthermore, as industries begin to transform with smarter technology, so should our channel partners’ offerings. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Ipswitch to help enable partners to better meet end client needs and drive differentiation. ”

MOVEit is used by thousands of organizations worldwide to provide security, traceability and control over business critical-file transfer activities.
