Atomz, a provider of enterprise Web site management software delivered as an online service, has added new features and functionality to enhance the usability and security of its enterprise Web content management solution, Atomz Publish. The company launched an enhanced, browser-based WYSIWYG Rich Text Editor, increased the number of Internet security standards and protocols it supports for content deployment, and has upgraded its integration with desktop applications.
Atomz Publish now works with customers' desktop applications, including Adobe GoLive and Macromedia Dreamweaver, as well as Web folders on both the Macintosh and Windows platforms. An improved browser-based WYSIWYG Rich Text Editor interface now offers content contributors an enhanced authoring environment to create, manage, and publish their work. The interface contains a button bar, enabling content authors, creators, and editors to edit, manipulate and, align text and images in much the same way they would with any standard desktop application. Several customization features provide greater control over the site's look and feel, including the ability to apply styles defined by the Web site designer, an assortment of formatting options for HTML tables and the ability to insert and upload images directly into content authoring Web forms. The new Rich Text Editor is available for customers who run the Windows operating system and use Internet Explorer. No software downloads or plug-ins are required. Atomz Publish now provides more than a dozen publishing options for transferring files from its content management system to production and staging Web servers. These include FTP, SSH1, or SSH2 File Transfer Protocols, DES, ARCFour, Blowfish, and more. Web teams can tackle collaborative projects using Atomz Publish and its WebDAV support to deliver integration between the desktop and the CMS. Customers can now drag-and-drop files such as Microsoft Word documents, PDFs, and images directly in and out of the Atomz Publish content repository using Web folders, supported by both the Windows and Macintosh platforms. Atomz Publish can serve as a shared network file system, providing a protocol for managing and staging content and templates that have been developed in standard desktop applications, including Adobe GoLive or Macromedia Dreamweaver. The files can then be managed by workflow processes to assure that design, information architecture, and content standards are maintained.
