New File Delivery Solution Leverages the Company's 20 Years of Mobility Software Experience and Its Patented Compression Technologies
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™, a new, secure file delivery service. SendStuffNow enables users to easily send files that require enhanced transmission security or are too large to send via email. This easy-to-use service lets consumers and professionals create and manage shared file links from any PC or mobile device, while providing IT managers with the ability to monitor and control the flow of documents outside their company's network.
Unlike FTP-based file transfer solutions many businesses have deployed to overcome the shortcomings of email, recipients of files delivered with SendStuffNow require no special client software-recipients just click on the emailed links to download files through a web browser.
SendStuffNow takes advantage of Smith Micro's 20 years of experience in file compression and encryption through its use of the StuffIt® archive format. StuffIt uses AES 256-bit encryption technology to protect the files in an archive. StuffIt also protects the metadata stored in the archive to prevent costly security holes left open by other file transfer solutions. The SendStuffNow web service uses an RSA 2048-bit key and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt all communications between the server, client and web browser.
"We developed SendStuffNow from the ground up to be highly secure because we see the safety of a customer's data as our number one priority," said William W. Smith, Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro Software. "We believe we offer a unique value proposition based on our years of experience in mobility software development and our StuffIt encryption technology. We've been a trusted provider of mobile solutions for decades, and we are excited to provide a secure, easy-to-use solution that makes it possible for businesses and individual end-users to seamlessly transition to a secure, cloud-based file-delivery solution."
A "central dashboard" and other policy-driven features allow IT managers to view company-wide usage data and to access reports that highlight potential security risks. IT managers can also delete any uploaded file and rescind specific invitations on a case-by-case basis. Reducing the costs associated with email and easing the burden on corporate Exchange servers, SendStuffNow is capable of storing and transmitting files up to 2GB in size.
The company will provide users with mobile access to the service through a client designed for both Apple's iPhone and iPad. Android and BlackBerry clients will be available late summer 2010. Using these mobile clients, users can track the status of pending file deliveries and create new invitations to allow additional users to access files that have already been uploaded. The free mobile client will make it possible to upload and share photos and videos captured on these devices.
SendStuffNow builds on Smith Micro's experience in the creation of secure software solutions for the mobility market. For IT professionals in need of a robust, company-wide file delivery tool that reinforces the reliability and safety of a corporate network, SendStuffNow is a compelling solution.
