MOVEit is used by thousands of organizations worldwide to provide security, traceability and control over business critical-file transfer activities. Earlier this year, MOVEit 2018 was released, addressing the need for enhanced security when enterprise file sharing involves sensitive data. MOVEit 2018 features a Secure Folder Sharing capability and easy-to-use desktop client, allowing IT groups to extend the adoption of secure managed file transfer to a broad base of end users through a convenient, easy-to-use file sharing and collaboration capability that assures data security, visibility and audit trails.

Thousands of IT teams depend on Ipswitch’s WS_FTP Server software for the unique business-grade features required to assure reliable and secure transfer of critical data. WS_FTP Server is available in three editions – Basic, Secure and Premium – specifically designed with customers’ budgetary and security needs in mind. WS_FTP Server delivers flexibility to create a more efficient and customized file transfer process for specific organizational needs.

WhatsUp Gold 2018 was released earlier this year with major enhancements, including performance monitoring of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure cloud deployments, Meraki cloud managed wireless systems and Dell Compellent storage devices. Ipswitch’s customers now have an at-a-glance dashboard and an interactive map for visibility into the status and performance of networks, servers, storage devices and applications across on-premises and cloud with a single network interface.
