Lexington, MA – September 21, 2009 – Ipswitch, Inc. File Transfer division, a developer of comprehensive secure and managed file transfer solutions, has announced it’s placement as a “Leader” in the “Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer” report authored by Gartner Inc’s Research Director, L. Frank Kenney.
In its report, Gartner states, “Companies should consider managed file transfer (MFT) suite vendors that meet short-term tactical and long-term strategic needs. It’s all too easy to react too quickly and procure and deploy technology that supports only one protocol or security standard. It’s much more prudent to deploy a product that can be easily expanded and upgraded to handle multiple protocols and multiple standards in a governed way that is fully auditable.”
“We believe this year’s placement in the Leaders Quadrant has been a great validation behind our continued ability to provide solutions that offer the highest levels of security, governance and flexibility on the market,” said Gary Shottes, president, Ipswitch File Transfer division. “Our managed file transfer solutions deliver mission-critical encrypted transfer and storage of enterprise-class files and data while enabling compliance with corporate, industry, and government regulations,” said Shottes.
