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.
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.
When it comes to old technology lurking around in your network, there is as good a chance as any other that an FTP or SFTP server is part, having been a staple of most IT teams for a very long time.
Chances are you have probably heard of or used, either WS_FTP Server or MOVEit Transfer. What you might not have known is that they are solutions from the same vendor, Ipswitch.
