PKZIP

Reduce file sizes by up to 95% and improve system performance
Year after year, the amount of data being stored and exchanged around the world increases at an exponential rate. Costs for data storage and transmission continue to grow, whether organizations maintain their files on premise or in the cloud. An efficient, flexible solution for data compression is essential for managing costs and resource demands.
Having introduced the ZIP file format nearly three decades ago, PKZIP continues to set the worldwide standard for data compression and file management

Unmatched performance
With PKZIP, organizations can compress files by up to 95%, reducing storage costs and greatly improving file transmission times. PKZIP can handle even the largest compression tasks, with capabilities to include more than 2 billion files in a single archive and compress files over 9 exabytes in size. PKWARE’s lossless compression technology ensures that all data (including file metadata) is retained when a file is zipped.
Flexibility and administrative control
PKZIP is compatible with all major enterprise computing platforms and supports multiple archive formats, making it easy to exchange data across the organization efficiently and effectively. Users can compress files in several archive formats, including ZIP, TAR, BZ2, and many others.
Enterprise customers can use PKZIP’s policy manager to standardize compression activities according to organizational policies and best practices, helping maximize efficiency, system performance, and resource savings.

Features:

  • PKZIP provides exceptional performance and ease of use across all enterprise operating systems.
  • Compression
  • Command Line Interface
  • Cross Platform Functionality

Available for:
Server
IBM i
Linux for z system
IBM z/OS.

SecureZIP

Enterprise-grade data encryption
Large-scale data breaches continue to expose the weaknesses in traditional information security strategies. Network and device protection is clearly not enough. Full-disk or volume encryption is a single-use-case approach that leaves information exposed at the data level. Persistent data-level encryption has become a necessity, especially in highly regulated industries.
PKWARE’s SecureZIP enables organizations of all kinds to implement persistent data protection while gaining visibility into where files are used, shared, and stored.

Compression and encryption in one solution
SecureZIP combines PKWARE’s industry-leading compression technology with strong encryption, allowing organizations to reduce data storage and transfer costs while ensuring the security of their information as it moves across hardware platforms, applications, mobile devices, and the cloud.

Industry-leading protection
Available for all major computing platforms, SecureZIP supports passphrase-based and digital certificate-based encryption, offering flexible security for any business environment. SecureZIP also supports two-factor authentication using smart cards or tokens, allowing for an additional layer of security.
With SecureZIP, organizations of any size can reduce the burden of data storage and transmission, while maintaining compliance with internal and external security mandates.

Features:

  • SecureZIP makes it easy to protect sensitive information and reduce the demands on IT infrastructure.
  • Persistent File Encryption
  • X.509 and OpenPGP Encryption
  • Cross Platform Functionality

Available for:
Server
IBM i
Linux for z system

Smartcrypt

Next-generation Encryption and key management
The world has changed. Information is everywhere. And you have no idea where it is.
Every day, thieves, snoops, and idiots exploit the gaps in enterprise information security. It’s time to stop believing in solutions that focus solely on network and device access. Today’s threats require us to protect the data itself.
PKWARE’s Smartcrypt is a revolution in enterprise data protection, allowing customers to protect their data at rest and in use, even when it moves outside the organization.

Smart encryption technology
Smartcrypt delivers persistent data protection without the tradeoffs that (until now) have prevented organizations from adopting strong encryption. Previously challenging tasks such as key generation, synchronization, and exchange are completely automated, making the encryption process transparent to end users and easier for administrators to control.

The Smartcrypt platform consists of four components:

Application: An end user application that encrypts and decrypts protected data on any enterprise operating system.
Manager: A web-based management console that gives administrators organization-wide control over encryption activities.
SDK:The Smartcrypt Software Development Kit provides a simple way for developers to embed persistent data protection into existing applications.
TDE: Smartcrypt Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) protects sensitive information at rest on enterprise servers and enables compliance with a wide range of regulatory requirements and customer privacy mandates.

Together, these components create a flexible data security solution that’s compatible with even the most complex enterprise architecture.

Eliminating the threat
Data breaches can burden organizations with massive penalties, sky-high legal fees, and reputation damage than can take years to repair. Smartcrypt, PKWARE’s next-generation encryption and key management solution, eliminates these risks, ensuring that data remains protected everywhere it is used, shared, and stored.

Features:
Smartcrypt delivers a revolutionary combination of functionality, ease of use, and flexibility, allowing organizations to configure an optimal data security solution.

StarNet

StarNet

StarNet Communications Corporation was founded in 1989 and incorporated in 1990 by engineers working part-time out of their home. The  corporate mission was to create and market powerful, yet affordable PC-X server products for corporate, education and government markets.

The first X Server product, MicroX, was launched in 1991. It enabled users of 286 and 386-based Intel systems to access the X Window System from their personal computers. Quite possibly, StarNet was the first company to base its entire business model on the Internet, because in 1991, the Internet was mostly used by universities and government agencies. As a result, and aided by its low cost, simplicity and focus on the X server functionality, X-Win32 quickly became popular in these sectors.

StarNet has grown its market share by bringing a steady stream of innovations to the market, starting in 2000 with integrating SSH and most recently with FastX which allows users to access their remote Linux and Unix desktop through standard PC browsers. FastX also offers the ability to Suspend/Resume sessions.

X-WIN32

The Best PC X Server for X Windows Display on Your LAN

After nearly 25 years of development, X-Win32 is the most versatile PC X Server for displaying remote Unix and Linux desktops and individual X applications. X-Win32 is widely used in demanding engineering design sectors such as defense/aerospace, molecular biology, and IC design with applications like Cadence Virtuoso.

Best Security

X-Win32 comes with an integrated SSH that encrypts all data between the client and the server, making remote x terminal connections from home and elsewhere very secure.

Fastest 3D/Rendering

The hardware acceleration on the local PC and the implementation of 65 OpenGL extensions allow X-Win32 to offer the fastest OpenGL support in the industry. 3D applications like Catia and Eclipse work like they were running locally.

Text/Graphics
Copy & Paste

X-Win32 is the only PC X Server that offers integrated copying of both text and graphics from X applications into Windows.

Multiple X Desktop

With X-Win32, open remote Unix and Linux desktops from several different hosts at the same time. You can Alt-Tab between Unix, Linux and Windows desktops, even copy data from one host to another.

Dynamic Window Scaling

X-Win32 is the first PC X server having activated the RandRextension, you can now scale the remote desktop simply by grabbing the corner of the window and dragging it to the desired size. You can also scale the window to be larger than your actual monitor.

 

FastX

The First Remote Linux Solution in the Cloud

FastX is the first and only remote Linux solution that allows users to connect to their sessions from any device with a web browser, even from your smart phone.
