Ipswitch Announces WhatsUp Gold Holiday Cash Back

Ipswitch, Inc.'s Network Management division, the leading developer of network management software, today announced a special cash back promotion for its WhatsUp Gold network management software. Organizations purchasing WhatsUp Gold Standard, Premium, Distributed Central or Distributed Remote editions by November 26, 2008 will be eligible to receive up to $350 in the form of American Express gift cards or gift cheques. This offer is available for purchases through all sales channels once the registration form has been completed.

"In this current economic climate we decided we would like to reward our customers with a cash back offer," says Ennio Carboni, Vice President of Sales for Ipswitch Network Management. "WhatsUp Gold is popular because it's an extremely cost-effective and easy-to-use network monitoring tool that can be up and running in less than an hour, helping IT departments locate and address the weaknesses in their systems."

The WhatsUp Gold product family provides an extensive and cost-effective out-of-the-box management and monitoring solution for networks of all sizes. WhatsUp Gold can be up and running quickly to examine critical network services, devices and applications. WhatsUp Gold's functionality provides network administrators with:

-- Real-time, standards-based network monitoring of any networked device, system or service, using SNMP and WMI

-- Automated and rapid device discovery and network mapping that represents your real network topology

-- Plug-in technology that enables deployment of new, specialized management and monitoring tools (i.e., NetFlow Monitor, VoIP Monitor)

-- Straightforward, comprehensive network reporting that presents actionable intelligence

-- Industrial strength network alerts, alarms and notifications that provide intuitive visibility

-- Effortless installation and deployment and practical, easy-to-use product functionality

WhatsUp Gold is popular because of its ease-of-use and it can be up and running in an hour. Others usually require some configuration. The entry-price level is also so low that they don't have to raise signatures for POs. The IT managers test it and then ask for it to be rolled out across other departments.
