SolarWinds Continues Product Family Expansion With Addition of New
File Transfer Management Software 
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 --  SolarWinds(R) (NYSE: SWI),
a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software,
announced today that it is introducing two new file transfer
management offerings, SolarWinds FTP Voyager and SolarWinds Serv-U
Managed File Transfer Server, that answer the IT community's need for
easy to use, purpose-built software that addresses the everyday
challenges they face, without breaking the bank. SolarWinds acquired
these products as part of its purchase of Rhino Software (RhinoSoft)
this week.  
The movement and transfer of sensitive company materials and
business-critical information present a particularly challenging
scenario for SolarWinds' users and IT pros. Currently, they find
themselves trapped between expensive, per seat licensed products that
strap already dwindling IT budgets, and a wild, wild west environment
where security and compliance are compromised by employees using any
service they can find to transfer data.  
With this product release, SolarWinds believes that it can
commoditize another space within IT management and deliver a truly
useful and affordable set of services that make IT pros' very complex
jobs easier.  
"By adding FTP Voyager and Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server
products to the SolarWinds portfolio, we are once again responding to
our users' demands with easy to use, easy to afford, feature-rich
solutions to their everyday problems," said Kevin Thompson, President
and CEO, SolarWinds. "We do not believe that IT pros should be forced
to take the lesser of two evils -- exorbitant costs associated with
per seat services, or compromised security and compliance. We want IT
pros to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing they can meet
their company's needs without sacrifice." 
SolarWinds Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server provides a very
cost-effective, secure managed file transfer solution with an
intuitive, easy to use web interface as well as the ability to access
files on the go through secure mobile access.  
SolarWinds Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server highlights: 

--  Secure, Automate, and Manage File Transfers and Workflows
--  Provide comprehensive en
terprise security, tracking and reporting
    features to demonstrate compliance with SOX, HIPAA, and GLBA
    regulations, as well as any internal corporate standards
--  Support multiple secure file transfer methods to quickly and easily
    manage and transfer files back and forth, increasing team and business
--  Reduce the risk and exposure of storing sensitive company information
    and files in the cloud

SolarWinds Serv-U file transfer management products are available
now. Pricing starts at $495 for SolarWinds Serv-U FTP Server, and as
