Ipswitch Partners with Signiant for Accelerated Transfer of Large Data Files

Ipswitch Adds Fast, Reliable and Secure Transfer of Large Data Files with Signiant’s Manager+Agents Accelerated File Transfer

LEXINGTON, Mass. – Sept. 25, 2017Ipswitch®, the leader in easy to deploy, manage and use file transfer and network management software, has partnered with Signiant, Inc., a leading provider of accelerated file movement software, to deliver an enhanced portfolio of file transfer offerings. Signiant’s Manager+Agents™ accelerated file transfer software complements Ipswitch MOVEit® Managed File Transfer (MFT) to deliver a specialized solution for customers who need to move large amounts of data quickly, securely and reliably between geographically dispersed endpoints.

“Signiant’s Manager+Agents is ideally suited to securely transfer very large files, typically more than 1GB, over long distances,” said Steve Staden, CISSP, Senior Director of Product Management at Ipswitch. “Ipswitch MOVEit and WS_FTP customers who need to transfer large digital assets such as marketing content and analytical data to geographically dispersed locations with tight delivery deadlines will benefit from the extremely fast data transfer speeds that Manager+Agents provides.”

When very large data sets are involved, standard transfers over IP networks can be too slow. Signiant's patented transport technology minimizes the impact of latency and packet loss, enabling the movement of large files over long distances up to 200 times faster than standard transfers. Manager+Agents is a scalable, enterprise-class solution designed to securely transfer large files, ranging from a few GBs to several terabytes and larger in typical use cases.

“We are delighted to partner with Ipswitch to provide customers with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for the transfer of their high-value digital assets,” said Rick Cramer, SVP Global Operations at Signiant. “By deploying both MOVEit MFT and Manager+Agents, enterprises will have the right tool for every task."

Ipswitch MOVEit MFT is an industry-leading secure file transfer solution that is optimized to transport sensitive data externally, while ensuring guaranteed file delivery and compliance with data protection regulations. MOVEit delivers end-to-end visibility, business continuity, control, security for files both in-transit and at rest, and automation capabilities to users. MOVEit can send files to any vendor, regardless of the type of FTP protocols they are using. For more information, visit:
