Security guidelines overview

WhatsUp Gold provides a number of important security features that you may configure and manage to maintain a secure deployment that defends against unauthorized access to the server as well as to devices providing data to the server.

Ipswitch recommends security best practices for WhatsUp Gold server deployment, configuration and management, including securing communication between the WhatsUp Gold server and external entities such as users and network devices that interact with or provide data to the server.

WhatsUp Gold stores sensitive user information and system credentials in encrypted format using AES 256-bit encryption. This important feature is enforced by default and no additional procedure is needed to enable or use it.
