Building on Over 15 Years of Network Management Excellence, New WhatsUp Gold Product Family Offers Unprecedented Functionality with Scalability from the SMB to the Enterprise

LEXINGTON, Mass., May 22 -- Ipswitch, Inc.'s Network Management division, the leading developer of network management software, announced today the immediate availability of WhatsUp Gold Version 12 Standard, Premium, Distributed and MSP Editions. WhatsUp Gold product family enhancements include a number of new features that enable true real-time monitoring of network devices and add configurable reports to allow up-to-the-second intelligence about and visibility into monitored systems or devices. Additional updates give WhatsUp Gold far more scalability, functionality and capabilities than point products aimed at small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), with pricing that is often many times lower than competitors' enterprise-class network management solutions.

"As a leading music publisher, it is important for us to be on song when it comes to understanding our complex network," explains Warner Music Italy IT Manager, Claudio Rivabene. "We found Ipswitch's WhatsUp Gold version 12 to be the number one solution to help us manage and monitor our whole infrastructure spanning between Milan, Rome and Athens."
