If you are a regular reader of our blogs, you would know that we often like to highlight any particular technical achievements or solutions we developed, so that knowledge can be shared amongst our customers and visitors alike. This week we not only have a clever solution - for transferring log files using MOVEit Automation - to showcase but that solution has been submitted by one of our customers.
Federated identity based authentication is (and should be) the holy grail of all IT Security authentication policies. Something which all IT teams should be looking to introduce to all cloud and third-party hosted solutions. Controversial opinion? I don't think so, but I am happy to be debated on the topic.
In this blog post we are comparing two network monitoring goliaths - Progress WhatsUp Gold and SolarWinds NPM, which is the Network Performance Monitoring module of the wider SolarWinds solution. For simplicity, we will continue to refer to this simply as SolarWinds and point-out where other plugins are required.
The development team at Progress sure has been busy over the past couple of months. With a new release of WS_FTP Server in December 2020, after a hiatus of two years; seemingly not enough of a task. We are now treated to a new version of WhatsUp Gold for 2021.
In keeping with the season of gift giving, Progress Software have released a 2020 edition of the well-known WS_FTP Server software. Bringing an end to a wait of just over two years since the previous version - the last version released by predecessor Ipswitch Inc.
It has to be said that Microsoft SharePoint is not everybody's cup-of-tea. But, with Microsoft dominating the office productivity landscape via it very popular Office 365 subscription service, it is probably the most common document library software in use. And with that said, we find that IT teams are often asking us about how they can bring SharePoint into their automated Managed File Transfer (MFT) workflows.
On the 20th of July 2020, HelpSystems LLC announced that they had signed an agreement with Globalscape Inc, in which HelpSystems would acquire all the outstanding shares of Globalscape. Thus ending more than twenty years of Globalscape in the MFT (managed file transfer) market.
It's fair to say that Monday's are not usually the favourite day of the week for most people. However, on this particular Monday we were able to help a customer with an operational problem which was really causing headaches. High off the endorphins of our success, we thought we would share our work in this blog; and show you, how you can automate the merging of PDF files, using MOVEit Automation.
Generally the larger our systems get, the more of an administrative burden they become. More user accounts need creating for access; permissions and controls need to be set correctly for security purposes; and something or someone needs to keep a track of the changes taking place.
If you are keen follower of our blog, you will have noted that in May 2020, we saw the release of the first MOVEit edition under the Progress banner. If you are not a keen follower...why on earth not?!
