BURLINGTON, Mass. – Nov. 6, 2018 – Ipswitch®, producer of award-winning and easy-to-use secure

region. Channel partners and resellers across the Middle East now have better access to Ipswitch IT
management solutions through Ingram Micro.

“Ipswitch is committed to making our powerful IT management solutions that are delivering 24/7
performance across cloud, virtual and network environments readily available through the Middle

insights and the trust and dependability that come from decades of proven relationships have set
Ingram Micro apart and ahead. Working with Ingram Micro will allow Ipswitch IT management
solutions to proliferate through the region.”

Channel partners and resellers in the Middle East have access to Ipswitch’s MOVEit® and WS_FTP®

external use with secure file transfer and sharing as well as data network management.”

MOVEit is used by thousands of organizations worldwide to provide security, traceability and control
over business critical-file transfer activities. Earlier this year, MOVEit 2018 was released, addressing
the need for enhanced security when enterprise file sharing involves sensitive data. MOVEit 2018
features a Secure Folder Sharing capability and easy-to-use desktop client, allowing IT groups to
extend the adoption of secure managed file transfer to a broad base of end users through a
convenient, easy-to-use file sharing and collaboration capability that assures data security, visibility
and audit trails.

Thousands of IT teams depend on Ipswitch’s WS_FTP Server software for the unique business-grade
features required to assure reliable and secure transfer of critical data. WS_FTP Server is available in
three editions – Basic, Secure and Premium – specifically designed with customers’ budgetary and
security needs in mind. WS_FTP Server delivers flexibility to create a more efficient and customized
file transfer process for specific organizational needs.

WhatsUp Gold 2018 was released earlier this year with major enhancements, including performance
monitoring of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure cloud deployments, Meraki cloud
managed wireless systems and Dell Compellent storage devices. Ipswitch’s customers now have an
at-a-glance dashboard and an interactive map for visibility into the status and performance of
