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.

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.
