2008-07-15 10:01:00

     Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute



    LEXINGTON, Mass., July 15 /EMWPresswire/ -- Ipswitch, Inc. File Transfer

Division, a leading provider of secure and managed file transfer solutions,

today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries

Quadrant in the "Magic Quadrant for Managed File Transfer" Report published

June 23, 2008 and authored by Gartner Research Director, L. Frank Kenney

and Senior Client Service Representative, James Lennard.



    This report positions vendors in one of four quadrants based on the

companies' completeness of vision and ability to execute on that vision.

The four quadrants are Leaders, Visionaries, Challengers and Niche Players.

    In its report, Gartner states, "Companies should consider managed file

transfer (MFT) suite vendors that meet their tactical and strategic needs.

It's all too easy to act reactively and deploy technology that only

supports 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 well-managed way that's

fully auditable."



    Ipswitch file transfer solutions enable businesses to meet and exceed

regulatory compliance and implement sound security policies by safely and

reliably moving data across the Internet. Over 40 million customers in

industries such as healthcare, financial services, government, software

development, retail, manufacturing, telecom and education use Ipswitch FT

and MOVEit solutions to manage the secure file transfer activities of their

organizations.



    "We believe our leadership in the managed file transfer space is well

reflected in our customer base of over 40 million users including MOVEit's

representation among the world's leading enterprises," said Gary Shottes,

president, Ipswitch File Transfer division. "Our innovative and secure

products based on ultra-strong FIPS 140-2 validated 256-bit encryption and

our industry-leading market penetration success, assures network

administrators and CIOs throughout the world that Ipswitch file transfer

solutions are among the most secure and effective solutions on the market

today. We believe being named to the Gartner visionaries quadrant for our

market is another validation of our solutions and our company's leadership

in the market."
