Ipswitch Renews OWASP Membership to Advance Best Practices in Secure Software Development

Ipswitch Joins Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Members to Secure Global Web Applications

BURLINGTON, Mass. – March 15, 2018Ipswitch®, producer of award-winning and easy to use secure file transfer and network management software, has renewed its membership in the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) to help secure web applications based on the critical need for improved application security. As a corporate sponsor, Ipswitch is a partner in OWASP’s mission to make software security visible so individuals and organizations are able to make informed decisions about software security risks.

“Security continues to be essential for Ipswitch MOVEit® secure file transfer and WhatsUp Gold® network monitoring to enable our customers to stay on top of evolving security threats,” said Steve Staden, CISSP, Senior Director of Product Management at Ipswitch. “Our OWASP membership continues this commitment and raises the bar for security in managed file transfer and network monitoring solutions. We’re proud to be a contributor in advancing security.”

OWASP provides effective and pragmatic approaches to security because of its open, global community. The OWASP Top 10 list is the industry standard in assessing security risks in web applications. The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Council, National Institute of Standard (NIST) and the Federal Trade Commission reference the OWASP Top 10 as an essential guide for meeting compliance initiatives. Ipswitch is the only managed file transfer and network monitoring company to support the OWASP Top 10 list.

Ipswitch has long been an advocate in advancing application security best practices, including dynamic and static code testing. Earlier this week, Ipswitch announced the latest version of its network monitoring software, WhatsUp Gold 2018 with new cloud performance, wireless and SaaS capabilities.
