Ipswitch File Transfer has announced the availability of its latest secure file transfer software, WS_FTP Server 7.6. The new software includes enhanced security, expanded database support and new customisation tools for simplified and secure person-to-person file transfers.
New features of WS_FTP 7.6 include:
· Enhanced Security: WS_FTP Server 7.6 builds upon its extensive security capabilities with the ability to encrypt file transfers using the OpenSSL 1.0.1c protocol. Additionally, the release adds FIPS 140-2 validated encryption to support international standard and requirements.
· Expanded Database Support: WS_FTP Server 7.6 provides support for the latest databases for flexibility and compatibility, including local or remote versions of Microsoft Windows SQL Server 2012; Express, Standard or Enterprise versions of Windows SQL Server 2012; and Version 8.3.20 of PostgreSQL.
· Customisation of Microsoft Outlook Plug-ins: For better usability and adoption, WS_FTP Server 7.6 users can customise their interface by easily adding their own brand or organisation information (logos, icons, labels) and customised help topics.
"Across every industry we are seeing increased demand for sharing sensitive mission-critical information between people, businesses, and applications." said Rich Kennelly, president of Ipswitch File Transfer Division. "IT professionals continue to choose our WS_FTP server products to ensure they have a secure, easy to use, and easy to administer solution for sharing their sensitive information.
