Enterasys Networks Selects Ipswitch for Secure, Managed File Transfer

Ipswitch's MOVEit Suite Replaces Existing FTP With Secure, Reliable Solutions to Transfer, Manage and Monitor Sensitive Customer Information

LEXINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2010) -  Enterasys, the network infrastructure and security division of Siemens Enterprise Communications GmbH & Co KG, has selected Ipswitch's MOVEit suite of managed file transfer solutions to help the company transfer, manage, monitor and protect its customers' sensitive information.

"Basic FTP is easy and efficient, but it just isn't good enough for our customers," said Grant Cocco, CISSP®, systems administrator at Enterasys. "Ipswitch's solution provides us with a reliable technology that protects our customers' confidentiality and gives us the level of visibility that helps us adhere to regulations and know exactly what information is being sent, to whom and when."

Enterasys has customers in the most highly regulated industries including healthcare, government and financial services -- making compliance with standards like SOX, PCI and HIPAA a critical requirement in the company's decision to select Ipswitch. There were 4 additional requirements that made Ipswitch's MOVEit suite of solutions stand out from the competition:

  • Scalability: Ipswitch's solution can quickly and easily grow to support additional internal and external communications among thousands of loyal customers, partners and employees as Enterasys' footprint continues to expand.
  • Secure and reliable: The MOVEit suite safeguards and manages customer, partner and employee data in transit or at rest -- with functionality that allows users to exchange files with designated recipients, based on individual permission levels.
  • Worldwide, on-demand accessibility: The solution delivers instant anytime/anywhere access to business-critical files -- based on pre-approved access policies. It offers universal Web browser support, and the ability to send files in seconds -- regardless of location or size.
  • Visibility: The MOVEit suite provides Enterasys with 360-degree visibility into more than 20,000 files moving internally and externally each month with an easy-to-use interface and robust reporting capabilities.

"We realized the power of the solution very quickly, giving us greater control, visibility and management of all internal and external file transfers," said Cocco. "We took a good, hard look at several of the other managed file transfer solutions available and the MOVEit family of products was the only solutions that addressed all of our needs." 

"When it comes to protecting your organization's confidential data, security, compliance and visibility are essential," said Gary Shottes, president of Ipswitch. "With hundreds of data breaches occurring over the past few years, some with multi-million dollar consequences, organizations must have the right solutions and practices in place when transferring sensitive information."

Ipswitch's MOVEit suite is the world's most comprehensive and easy-to-use secure managed file transfer solution. The technology goes well beyond traditional FTP by combining best-in-class encryption with global visibility into all file transfer activity across the business. The system streamlines data transfer workflows, provides a quick and easy way to exchange sensitive information regardless of file location or size and automatically authenticates employees, business partners and customers based on internal directories and databases.
