Automatically Streamlines the Sending of Large Files with Encryption of Individual Documents
ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading developer and marketer of software solutions and services for the mobility market, today announced the launch of SendStuffNow's Outlook Plug-in. The secure, cloud-based delivery service now automatically removes and delivers files that are too large to send as email attachments - including photos and videos - via the cloud. In addition, SendStuffNow™ allows for the creation and management of shared file links from any PC or mobile device, including iPhones, iPad and Android devices. SendStuffNow's secure file encryption technology ensures each document is protected throughout the entire process, providing safe, secure delivery of files.
SendStuffNow with its Outlook Plug-in is a compelling solution for IT professionals, especially those in Microsoft-based businesses who require a robust, company-wide file delivery tool that reinforces the reliability and safety of a corporate network. Another benefit is that, once SendStuffNow is deployed, no costly employee training is necessary. Integration within the desktop Outlook client means that users automatically gain the benefit of the cloud-based file delivery workflow without requiring them to learn new tools.
"Since the initial launch of SendStuffNow in July, we've seen tremendous demand from the marketplace," said Matthew Covington, Senior Director, Product Management for Smith Micro Software. "The Outlook Plug-in is a perfect example of how we are continually improving the service for enterprises and small-medium businesses to maximize functionality by way of the most secure, cloud-based file delivery service."
SendStuffNow leverages Smith Micro's 20 years of experience in file compression and encryption technology through its use of the StuffIt® archive format. StuffIt prevents costly security holes left open by other file transfer solutions due to its AES 256-bit encryption technology, protecting a file, as well as the metadata stored in its archive. The service uses an RSA 2048-bit key and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt all communications between the client, server and web browser.
SendStuffNow also builds on Smith Micro's experience in the mobility market with clients available for the iPhone, iPad and Android. Users can track the status of pending file deliveries and create new invitations to allow additional users access to files already uploaded, directly from a device. The free mobile application also simplifies sharing videos and photos captured from mobile phones.
SendStuffNow can store and transmit files up to 2GB in size. A central dashboard allows IT managers to delete any uploaded file and rescind invitations on a case-by-case basis. Recipients of files delivered with SendStuffNow simply click on emailed links to download files through a web browser; no account or special software is required. This feature, along with the new Outlook Plug-in, further helps reduce the burden on corporate Exchange servers.
