Ipswitch’s main goal is to combine the network discovery and asset management parts of IT administration into one single product. The result is What’sConnected 3.0, which has been designed to be cost-effective while simultaneously reducing operational costs.
WhatsConnected can be deployed as a standalone solution or a plug-in for WhatsUp Gold (which has also been updated to version 14.4). Plug it in and flip the switch, and WhatsConnected will start to automatically “discover, map, inventory and document its entire IT infrastructure,” according to Ipswitch, which also boats that WhatsConnected is both fast and efficient and can help IT admins quickly see what’s going on in their network regarding software, operating systems, applications and hardware.
New features include:
- Dynamic refreshing of maps
- Microsoft Windows inventory and reporting
- Customizable device and group filters
- Granular discovery and scanning
Meanwhile, WhatsUp Gold has been imbued with the ability to automatically detect FIPS 140-2 validated operating systems, helping IT admins bolster their network security without big investments in time.
WhatsConnected 3.0 is available now starting at $1,995 USD (MSRP) for a 25-device license. WhatsUp Gold 14.4, coming soon, will be priced at $1,595 USD (MSRP) for a standard edition 25-device license.
