Garbsen, Germany -- February 17, 2004 -- HELIOS Software GmbH, a leading provider of file, print and prepress server solutions, is now shipping HELIOS WebShare, a secure and extremely fast server solution that enables users to access their file servers over the Internet. WebShare replaces inefficient and insecure file transfer methods such as FTP, VPN, ISDN, e-mail and others; using an intuitive Web browser interface to enable real time file uploads and downloads, document proofing, and remote file management.
HELIOS is known worldwide for EtherShare and PCShare, its UNIX server-based network file and print server solutions for Macintosh and PC clients. HELIOS WebShare adds a critical new dimension - a high performance server for real time remote file access via any Web browser.
HELIOS WebShare makes remote use of file servers via the Internet as easy as if working on a local workstation. Files can be accessed directly and speedily via a Web browser, so that there is no need for any additional WebDAV, FTP, AFP or SMB/CIFS connections that typically slow down file transfers or make the process more difficult. And, collaboration becomes easier as users can view, access and use the same server data over the Internet.
