New York, NY, United States, 2006/10/06 - Sending extremely large files over the internet has been dictated by companies requiring you to use their services and servers. Now, eTouchWare Inc. has developed the technology which will eliminate the need for FTP and File Transfer services.
eTouchWare Inc., Tirminal™ eTouchWare’s patent pending file transfer application that allows any PC user to send any sized file or folder to anyone, has taken a turn to the consumer market. After reaching 1,000 downloads in its debut month of September, eTouchWare is announcing that their proprietary software Tirminal™ will now be issued FREE to everyone.
The problems that users face today, is that both disk space and internet bandwidth speeds are increasing, yet the methods by which they transfer files is still rooted in simple email attachments and FTP sites. Email is limited to around 5 MB sizes, and FTP is limited to the account size that the user pays for. Furthermore, FTP sites and services charge their clients on a scale of disk space needed and volume of transfers (bandwidth).
Tirminal™ is a stand-alone client that sits on your PC. It allows you to send a link to someone- either though an email or IM; by which they can open and see your files through their browser.
The patent assigned, is a first in this type of file transfer method – a single client. To send files with Tirminal™, only the sender needs to have it installed. Because file transfers happen point to point, there is no limit on the size of files or the volume of transfers.
Tirminal™ (tirminal.com) uses AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) grade security; up to 256 bit encryption, which keeps your information secure. Also, because the information never goes through eTouchWare’s network or any other 3rd party server, there is no chance for data tampering or record keeping of any kind on any transaction. And each transfer can be monitored in real-time by the Tirminal™ user.
“We came to realize that our support overhead was too big for such a small application – and with users expecting to receive support for software that they pay for; there was no limit to the calls we were receiving” - Simon Grunfeld, Director of Business Development.
“We initially set our goal for 1000 to see just exactly how the market would respond to our product; we were very happy with the feedback. Now, we are going to distribute Tirminal™ for free – while only charging our customers for phone support. Although, experience computer users will probably not need the company’s help, most end users will.”
