Smith Micro Software releases new cloud-based file transfer service

To enable users share files without email attachments or FTP

By CBR Staff Writer

Smith Micro Software has released StuffIt Deluxe 2010 for Windows, which includes StuffIt Connect, a new cloud-based file transfer service that enables users share large files without the hassle of email attachments or FTP.

The company said that the new offering 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.

According to Simth Micro Software, the new offering 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 allows them to download shared files. It protects files with 512bit RC4 encryption technology and offers users the ability to protect download links with password access to ensure files can only be opened by the intended recipient.

The company said that the StuffIt Connect allows mobile professionals to access information such as presentations and documents with a web-enabled device. The StuffIt Deluxe 2010 for windows includes new file transfer service that offers a secure way to share and store up to 2GB of file; and ability to send large files via email. Small files are automatically compressed and attached to a new email message, while larger items are automatically uploaded to a secure website via StuffIt Connect

In addition, the new version also features improved image compression which offers improved pixel-perfect compression of PNG, TIFF and other 24 bit image formats; and improved audio compression that includes optimised compression of WAV audio files.

Matthew Covington, senior director of product management at Smith Micro Software, said: “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.”
