SolarWinds Continues Product Family Expansion With Addition of New File

Published:

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- SolarWinds(R) (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, announced today that it is introducing two new file transfer management offerings, SolarWinds FTP Voyager and SolarWinds Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server, that answer the IT community's need for easy to use, purpose-built software that addresses the everyday challenges they face, without breaking the bank. SolarWinds acquired these products as part of its purchase of Rhino Software (RhinoSoft) this week.

The movement and transfer of sensitive company materials and business-critical information present a particularly challenging scenario for SolarWinds' users and IT pros. Currently, they find themselves trapped between expensive, per seat licensed products that strap already dwindling IT budgets, and a wild, wild west environment where security and compliance are compromised by employees using any service they can find to transfer data.

With this product release, SolarWinds believes that it can commoditize another space within IT management and deliver a truly useful and affordable set of services that make IT pros' very complex jobs easier.

"By adding FTP Voyager and Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server products to the SolarWinds portfolio, we are once again responding to our users' demands with easy to use, easy to afford, feature-rich solutions to their everyday problems," said Kevin Thompson, President and CEO, SolarWinds. "We do not believe that IT pros should be forced to take the lesser of two evils -- exorbitant costs associated with per seat services, or compromised security and compliance. We want IT pros to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing they can meet their company's needs without sacrifice."

SolarWinds Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server provides a very cost-effective, secure managed file transfer solution with an intuitive, easy to use web interface as well as the ability to access files on the go through secure mobile access.

SolarWinds Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server highlights: -- Secure, Automate, and Manage File Transfers and Workflows -- Provide comprehensive enterprise security, tracking and reporting features to demonstrate compliance with SOX, HIPAA, and GLBA regulations, as well as any internal corporate standards -- Support multiple secure file transfer methods to quickly and easily manage and transfer files back and forth, increasing team and business productivity -- Reduce the risk and exposure of storing sensitive company information and files in the cloud Pricing and Availability

SolarWinds Serv-U file transfer management products are available now. Pricing starts at $495 for SolarWinds Serv-U FTP Server, and as low as $1895 per server for SolarWinds Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server, with the first year of maintenance included.

SolarWinds FTP Voyager

Beginning today, SolarWinds will offer the SolarWinds FTP Voyager product for free, allowing every IT pro to take advantage of the leading secure file transfer client available in the market. FTP Voyager offers support features like drag-n-drop, scheduled transfers and folder synchronization from your Windows desktop.

The addition of the free FTP Voyager to the company's robust offerings of free tools is an example of the company's ongoing commitment to creating value and giving back to the IT community. Through its widely recognized and used TFTP Server and the new FTP Voyager, SolarWinds is the only company to offer such a valuable and compelling set of FREE products to support file transfer for any sized company.
