Unlimi-Tech Intros FileCatalyst Web

LAS VEGAS -- Enterprises seeking a way out of the mire of FTP servers and email attachment bounce-backs can now look to a new software-based product called FileCatalyst Web being launched at Interop 2007. Combining file transfer ease and email notification with acceleration, FileCatalyst Web from Unlimi-Tech Software Inc. removes complexity for ordinary end users looking to quickly transfer gigabyte-level files across enterprise networks.

Email and FTP are not designed to transfer large files over global networks, and FTP is dramatically affected by packet loss and latency, adding to network inefficiencies. To compensate, network administrators place limitations on the size of email attachments to manage the burden on their network and mail servers.

"As a result," said John Tkaczewski, President of Unlimi-Tech, "today's email and FTP systems place an inordinate burden on end users as well as IT support staff trying to enable large file transfers. FileCatalyst Web offers a three-for-one value proposition -- a Web-based software that combines file transfer, email and file acceleration into a single application purpose-built for large file exchanges over global networks."
