PCI audit regulations around scope continue to drive the need for people to segment their networks, applications and often, their equipment. At Ipswitch, we often see new enterprise customers fed up with their monolithic legacy systems coming to us with a “tactical” need to segment.
Typically, these customers leave a large number of existing transfers on their legacy system to begin with (a 10-1 ratio of legacy to new connections is not uncommon), and some try-and-buy a MOVEit system at that point. However, others get hooked on the idea of a more flexible, more relevant system and end up with a strategy to migrate all partner connections to MOVEit over a period of 12-18 months, even as they use MOVEit to completely address their short-term PCI segmentation needs.
