Ipswitch Failover Ensures Reliable Managed File Transfers and Safeguards to Protect Data and Meet Regulatory Compliance Mandates

LONDON, UK – September 23, 2015  — / — Ipswitch today announced the release of Ipswitch Failover, a new MOVEit Managed File Transfer module that delivers zero data loss, no single point of failure and maximised availability through fast failover. Ipswitch Failover enables IT teams to provide highly available continuous file transfer operations and safeguard against data loss for regulatory and policy compliance with a simplified, easy to implement solution. With Ipswitch Failover, businesses can:

  • Ensure high availability continuous file transfers for 24×7 operations: Maximise file transfer success of business critical and sensitive data. Failover within a single datacenter or to remote disaster recovery site within seconds or minutes. Predictive and automated rules-based failover ensures continuous operations.
  • Safeguard against data loss for regulatory and policy compliance: Heartbeat communication between primary and failover servers allows for zero data loss in the event of failure. No single point of failure delivers 24×7 operations for MOVEit File Transfer (DMZ) and MOVEit Central servers.
  • Quickly implement simplified, yet advanced failover: Implement failover in as little as an hour for local failover. No additional hardware and software for load balancing is required.

“We use MOVEit products to automate secure communication with customers around the world,” said Sean Kane, Systems Administrator, at Aon Hewitt. “Ipswitch Failover provides the robust capabilities that we need for 24/7 global operations. Detecting when something is wrong is often difficult, and having a unified management for all the elements of managed file transfer including the database and file system give us confidence in the solution.”

Key features of Ipswitch Failover:

  • Real-time replication of data to a ‘hot-standby’ failover server to ensure file transfer services are always available
  • Failover rules monitor performance metrics on production servers and can perform switchover to a ‘hot-standby’ before downtime
  • Automated failover with Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) of less than a minute and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) of seconds
  • No single point of failure nor load balancing hardware or software required
  • Automatically monitor MOVEit File Transfer Server (DMZ) and MOVEit Central application health in real-time to identify and fix problems before they result in downtime
  • Site-to-site (or on-site) failover to keep businesses running 24×7

“As today’s businesses are faced with the growing demand for data movement and increased regulatory regulations, organisations need to ensure the safety of sensitive company data and reliable file transfers,” said Steve Staden, Director of Product Management at Ipswitch. “Ipswitch Failover provides IT teams with the necessary solution to guarantee zero data loss across an organisation while also simplifying file transfer operations.”
