DAX-IT Provides Secure Delivery of Graphics, Layouts and Large Files Over the Internet
Press release from the issuing company
NEW YORK -- March 13, 2001 -- Digital Art Exchange, Inc. (DAX) today announced the expansion of the DAX-IT secure information transfer solution to provide full support for the Macintosh platform. DAX and Hilgraeve, Inc. jointly developed the DAX-IT Macintosh agent to enable prepress shops, advertising agencies, graphic design firms and other creative companies that utilize Macintosh systems to take advantage of DAX-IT's secure and trackable file delivery. The Windows(R) version of DAX-IT was officially launched at the Print On Demand show in New York City on February 28th.
DAX-IT (Secure Information Transfer) is an easy-to-use, browser-based service that guarantees the safe and private delivery of large files such as graphics, which are standard in creative industries, to their appropriate destination. DAX-IT targets companies that want to utilize an all-digital workflow, but are concerned with security issues inherent in other file transfer methods such as typical email and FTP solutions.
Through an exclusive partnership announced in December, Hilgraeve, Inc., a leading provider of secure Internet delivery solutions, introduced its HyperSend technology to the graphic communications industry through DAX-IT, allowing companies to take advantage of secure file transfer technology over the web. Hilgraeve, the developer of HyperTerminal, which comes standard with every copy of Microsoft Windows, is well known in financial, health care and government institutions, where it is mandatory that these types of companies and their clients have nearly one hundred percent security when sending and receiving private files.
While there is currently no browser-based file transfer solution that is full-proof, DAX went outside the graphic arts industry and discovered that Hilgraeve's HyperSend technology was the closest solution to one hundred percent security over the Internet. If credit card agencies and hospitals were using HyperSend, then it would be secure enough for the graphic communications industry.
