Singapore, October 28, 2016 – Ipswitch, the leader in easy to try, buy and use IT and network management software, today announced as a winner in Network Testing, Monitoring & Protection category in NetworkWorld Asia 2016 Readers' Choice/Rising Star Awards. Ipswitch won the award for WhatsUp Gold, a network and application monitoring software, which reimagines how IT teams discover, visualize, troubleshoot and monitor networks, servers, virtual machines and applications.
The awards were presented at a special ceremony at the Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel on October 27. The awards are conferred on the basis of the votes from readers of NetworkWorld Asia magazine, and the Networks Asia, Security Asia and Storage Asia online portals. Close to 300 readers have voted – across a broad range of categories – for vendors or service providers that have made the most impact on Asian end-user organizations in 2016.
“As trends such as enterprise mobility, interconnection, the Internet of Things and Big Data start impacting enterprises in the region, the need to visually monitor, troubleshoot and protect enterprise networks and applications becomes so much more critical,” said Victor Ng, Editor-in-Chief of NetworkWorld Asia and Enterprise Group Editorial Director at Questex Asia. “Solutions such as WhatsUp Gold are providing that much-needed peace of mind for IT folks tasked with ensuring network infrastructure, business applications and information are available and protected.”
