Posted by at 11:21 am on March 25, 2009

Ipswitch today announced the launch of WS_FTP Professional 12 and WS_FTP Home 12.

Fifteen years, and 40 million customers, after Ipswitch first set the standard for clients, innovation continues to run strong with the most secure file transfer clients available: WS_FTP Professional and Home version 12. “In response to growing concerns around data security and compliance, we’re re-defining the file transfer client market with the most secure technology available,” said Kevin Gillis, vice president Product Management, Ipswitch’s File Transfer division.

With this launch, new features in either WS_FTP Professional, WS_FTP Home or both include:

Industry-leading Security

  • Built-in local OpenPGP file encryption using up to RSA 4,096 bit keys
  • Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Validated Cryptography
  • SSH Key Management and Enhanced SSH Capabilities
  • Enhanced SSL Certificate Management Capabilities
  • File non-repudiation and automatic compression with MOVEit DMZ servers

Productivity-enhancing Features

  • Improved performance for faster connection, re-connection and transfer times
  • Post-transfer file automation for moving, deleting and renaming integrated with synchronizing, scripting, command line and backup
  • Universal Naming Convention (UNC) mapped network drive access
  • Microsoft IIS and Apache Web Servers full file listing and folder navigation
  • Microsoft Windows 2008 support

WS_FTP Professional protects files before, during and after transfer with 256-bit AES encryption, FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography, OpenPGP file encryption, and file integrity validation. “The combination of OpenPGP and FIPS cryptography is a pairing you won’t find in any other file transfer client. Competitors can’t match our security,” said Gillis.

Multiple advantages of using WS_FTP Professional to connect to Ipswitch’s WS_FTP Server and MOVEit DMZ servers include

  • File Integrity: Guarantees that the file uploaded and the file downloaded are 100% identical
  • Encryption: Secure client-server connections with 256-bit AES encryption
  • FIPS: End-to-end FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography for all client-server connections and transfers

With a few simple clicks, WS_FTP Home 12 allows home and small office users to transfer files of any type or size to any brand of file transfer server over secure SSL/FTPS connections. Selecting the exact files to send is now easier than before, due to built-in integration with Windows desktop search, as well as the ability to view and resize thumbnail images.

WS_FTP Professional is available in English and German and can be purchased directly from www.IpswitchFT.com as well as from Ipswitch’s worldwide partners. Volume discounts and site licenses are also available.
