StuffIt Makes it Easy for Anyone to Compress, Secure and Store Photos, Music, Documents, PowerPoints and Share them via a New Cloud-Based File Transfer Service
ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) Productivity and Graphics Group today announced the availability of StuffIt Deluxe® 2010 for Windows. The new release includes StuffIt® Connect, a new cloud-based file transfer service that lets users share large files without the hassle of email attachments or FTP. StuffIt continues to provide best-in-class compression technology, and includes Smith Micro's industry leading patented compression methods designed to provide pixel-perfect compression of image files, audio files, PDFs and Microsoft Office documents.
StuffIt works with virtually all files and compression formats, such as Zip, to satisfy all users' personal and professional needs, and to ensure that all their photos, music, videos, PowerPoint presentations and other large files are shared or stored securely.
StuffIt Deluxe 2010 eliminates the constraints of email attachments by automatically redirecting large files to the new StuffIt Connect web service. Recipients receive invitations via email that contain a link to the hosted file, which lets them download shared files quickly and easily. Users can access and create invitations to share content from any Internet-connected device, such as web-enabled phones. StuffIt Connect protects files with powerful 512bit RC4 encryption technology and offers users the ability to further protect download links with password access to ensure files can only be opened by the intended recipient.
Mobile professionals spend a significant amount of time traveling for work and perform much of their job function outside the secure zone of the office network on mobile devices such as a Netbook, laptop, or Smartphone device. With StuffIt Connect mobile professionals can access critical information such as presentations and supporting documents on the road with any web-enabled device. The user simply creates an invitation from their mobile device, which allows their customers or colleagues to receive the invitation and download any file in real-time.
"One of the key features of StuffIt Connect is that once a file, or collection of files, has been posted to the service, the user can access and create invitations to share that content from any Internet-connected device, including their Smartphone," said Matthew Covington, Senior Director, Product Management for Smith Micro Software. "We definitely see a tremendous growth opportunity in this area for many media-heavy verticals including photography, advertising, music, and graphic design. StuffIt Connect adds value to anyone who regularly shares files such as music, images, video and large presentations. StuffIt Connect acts like a personal assistant, running seamlessly in the background to make real-time decisions about compression, encryption, and storage."
