Smith Micro Software Launches Full Support For Android Devices To Streamline Delivery Of Large Files Via The Cloud

Aug 17, 2010
SendStuffNow™ for Android Market Enables Mobile Users to Easily Send, Track and Manage Files too Large to Send via Email

ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading developer and marketer of software solutions and services for the mobility market, today released SendStuffNow™ for Android devices. The Android operating system recently surpassed Apple to take the number-two spot in the U.S. smartphone market. To address the file delivery needs of this growing user base, the new SendStuffNow app allows users to easily and securely send large files, track the status of pending file deliveries and create new invitations to allow additional users to access files that have already been uploaded. SendStuffNow for Android also makes it possible to upload and share photos and videos captured on these devices.

SendStuffNow now provides customers on Android, iPhone and iPad devices with the most secure way to deliver files over the mobile Internet. When the application is launched, users simply select and upload the video, image or document file that needs to be shared. Those receiving files via SendStuffNow only need to click on links to files embedded in an email to download them through a Web browser, making sending and receiving files simple. SendStuffNow allows consumers to store and transmit files up to 2GB in size.

"For decades Smith Micro has been a trusted provider of mobile solutions, and our years of experience in mobile software development, paired with our StuffIt encryption technology has enabled us to create SendStuffNow, the most secure, easy-to-use mobile file transfer solution available today," said Matthew Covington, Senior Director of Product Management for Smith Micro's Productivity and Graphics Group. "The release of an app for Android expands the reach of SendStuffNow to a burgeoning mobile marketplace, and builds on the momentum we set forth last month with the launch of apps for the iPhone and iPad."

SendStuffNow takes advantage of Smith Micro's over 20 years of experience in file compression and encryption. The service offers cutting-edge, file-level encryption technology to enterprise customers concerned with the security of cloud-based file transfer solutions. Through its use of the StuffIt® compression engine, SendStuffNow offers AES 256bit encryption of both Zip and StuffIt archives. Users choosing StuffIt encryption get the added benefit of "total archive encryption," whereby StuffIt protects even the archive's metadata such as file names, types, and sizes in addition to encrypting the file itself. This closes a significant security hole left open by competing solutions. Files encrypted using the StuffIt file format can be decrypted with StuffIt Expander, a free tool available for download from SendStuffNow.com. In addition to providing file-level encryption to protect data at rest in the cloud, SendStuffNow uses an RSA 2048-bit key and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt all communications between the server, clients and web browser.

SendStuffNow currently runs on devices supporting the Android 2.0 operating system or higher.
