Xinet, Inc., a provider of digital asset management and workflow solutions for advertising, publishing, printing, and retail companies, has unveiled its newest product, WebNative Portal. Available June 1st, WebNative Portal is a Web-hosting application that is designed to provide virtual asset hosting, enhanced security, and greater flexibility for digital asset management systems powered by WebNative and WebNative Venture. WebNative Portal is intended to simpliy the task of interface branding and customization, and gives companies the ability to link multi-site Xinet DAM installations.
WebNative Portal moves the entry point of Xinet's asset management solution to a proxy server outside the firewall. This additional networking layer increases the security of hosted assets and satisfies the common IT requirement for putting Web-facing servers in the "DMZ." Also, WebNative Portal's template-based architecture can be customized with Web-authoring applications like Dreamweaver and GoLive. WebNative Portal includes a number of usage control features that are useful in the rights management of assets. Asset availability, approval, and use can be restricted by start and end dates, approval status, pre-set re-purposing parameters, and others. WebNative Portal is localized in Chinese, Danish, English, Finnish, French, German, Japanese, Norwegian, Spanish, and Swedish.
