Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold Tops SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor in Competitive Report by Tolly Group

Tolly Report Provides Functionality, Licensing and Pricing Comparison, Outlining Business Case for Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold

BURLINGTON, Mass. – Nov. 15, 2017Ipswitch®, the leader in easy to deploy, manage and use file transfer and network management software, commissioned the Tolly Group to analyze its approach in providing business value and compare that with a similar network management offering from SolarWinds.

“For a lot of IT teams having an easy-to-use network monitoring solution that does everything you need it to from one integrated console is a requirement,” said Kevin Conklin, Vice President of Product Marketing and Content at Ipswitch. “This Tolly Group report shows how WhatsUp Gold incorporates that approach to provide more value, more monitoring flexibility and a lower cost of ownership, especially when monitoring needs to grow over time – all over the competition.”

The Tolly report provides a functionality comparison of network monitoring, server monitoring, application monitoring, network traffic analysis and configuration management. It also compares licensing flexibility, pricing, simplicity and transparency, and overall total cost of ownership. The analysis was conducted by reviewing product documentation.

Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold is available in four editions that provide increasing levels of IT monitoring functionality from network devices and servers, through application monitoring, virtual and cloud environments, network traffic monitoring and configuration management. Its “point-based” licensing system is designed to maximize customer value. Unlike with competitive offerings, there is no need to buy a new product with new licensing in order to monitor applications or network traffic. WhatsUp Gold users can simply opt for an expanded edition and their points can be reassigned to monitor whatever they choose.
