Today Microsoft recognized Ipswitch as an “Independent Software Vendor” (ISV) in its Certified Partner Program.
Ipswitch was previously enrolled in the program with a security competency but was recognized today as an ISV after L10NBRIDGE provided third-party certification of WS_FTP Professional 12.2′s fitness under Microsoft Windows 7.
In addition to benefits Ipswitch already enjoys as a member of Microsoft’s Certified Partner Program, ISV status within that program provides Ipswitch with even more access to Microsoft technical expertise for initial design of products or deep-end debugging.
Ipswitch File Transfer is proud to announce the release of Ipswitch Sendable – a better way to send large and important files. Sending files has never been so fast and easy, as Sendable’s entire user experience was designed from the ground up to be accessible yet powerful.
Sendable represents Ipswitch’s second foray into “Software as a Service” (SaaS) and combines the accumulated experience of self-service satisfaction through ecommerce sales of WS_FTP with infrastructure and people that have been online serving thousands of customers for over five years. However, Sendable is truly something new in the Ipswitch portfolio: an web-based application that optimizes the experience for individuals who need to do something NOW.
Ipswitch is well aware that people will often do whatever they feel is right to send information to their partners, customers and comrades around the globe. With the introduction of Sendable and Ipswitch’s other “ad hoc” solutions, Ipswitch now has the only product suite in the industry that allows sole proprietors, small businesses without an IT shop, one-person IT shops and departmental/divisional IT shops at the enterprise level to all deploy their choice of SaaS or on-premises solution to meet their specific scope and implementation needs.
Please take the time to try out Sendable today or contact your account representative to continue the conversation.
Today the PCI Security Standards Council will announce that its three main publications will switch to a synchronized three year cycle. There will still be a new PCI DSS coming out this October, but the next one will not come out until fall 2013.
This shows that the payment card industry, lately seen as a security leader in the financial space, is generally happy with its efforts to define what an appropriately secured and managed environment ought to be and expects future changes to come more slowly than they have in the past.
Over the weekend support manager Kevan Bard and his operations team successfully upgraded Ipswitch File Transfer’s MOVEit DMZ Hosted Services (that’s MOVEit DMZ software as a service) to version 7.0. There were two highly-available setups one thousand files apart involved in the upgrade, and a significant banking customer on this infrastructure (with just over 500 users and 35GB online) was moved between data centers the same time.
The upgrade/migration of these systems and their thousands of active users was one of Ipswitch’s more complex operating challenges in recent years and was planned, tested, staged and executed with a high degree of success. If your data deserves the white-glove treatment too, rest assured that the right people are in place to support your technology, whether on-premises or in one of our SaaS offerings.
