Laplink Releases New Version of P2P Networking Application

Jun 17, 2005

Laplink has released ShareDirect 1.3, an application that is designed to allow users to connect folders between any number of PCs and share files of any size or type directly. ShareDirect intends to enable private folder-to-folder file sharing connections across an Internet connection and through existing firewall and router configurations.

Laplink's ShareDirect is designed to take peer-to-peer file sharing and make it business-ready with a security package that includes: sharing through existing firewall and router configurations without compromising security. No special configuration is required in order to share files between PCs; sharing between authenticated members only. No unauthorized or anonymous individuals can access files; 256-bit encryption on all data transmissions, keeping files secure and private; built-in anti-virus checking for all downloaded files.

ShareDirect meets the security requirements of industries entrusted with private or sensitive data. This version of Laplink ShareDirect is designed to streamline usability and brings the supported languages to five - English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish.

ShareDirect costs less than $4 per month, based on an annual subscription of less than $40.
