Smith Micro: When You Just Want To Send a File

first_imgTags:#cloud#cloud computing Google Docs, Box.net, Dropbox and a host of others could be considered competitors to SendStuffNow.Smith Micro maintains its distinction is in a singular focus on file transfer and security. The company’s roots are in these realms. Does it make sense for the company to add collaboration features?You could argue that’s what APIs are for. Smith Micro will release an API and SDK later this year. Mobile apps are on the way. SendStuffNow could also conceivably become part of an app environment like Google Apps Marketplace and could integrate with its collaboration technologies.SendStuffNow could be one of those niche products that does not do much. But what it does do, it handles very well. alex williams Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Services for file sharing and storage often will include collaboration features. Smith Micro Software has a new cloud-based service called SendStuffNow that has at its core one major purpose. It is designed to send files. It is not for storing files and collaborating. It is for sending files in a secure manner. That’s it.For Smith Micro, it makes sense to focus narrowly on sending files in a secure manner. The company started in 1982 by selling fax modem software. That helped Smith Micro sell its software to fax machine companies. Those companies could tell their customers that documents could be shared in a fast, efficient and relatively secure manner.Smith Micro later extended that business by moving into wireless communications, providing data connection services for the carriers.In the 1990s, the company acquired Aladdin, a compression software for the Macintosh. Stuffit became a standard service for sharing .zip files via email.SendStuffNow is the next generation of Stuffit. The service itself is pretty simple. You upload a file to the service and then send an invitation to the recipient. The user gets a link to the file that they then download.It includes IT admin controls that allow files to be offloaded files from the email or corporate server. It can also be used to monitor employee activity. Controls are in place so IT may monitor and control the large documents as they flow out of the enterprise. File are all encrypted. The service can be used for free. Different pricing tiers are available, starting at $120 per year.

Delhi court sends three separatists to judicial custody till July 12 in terror-funding case

first_imgA Delhi court on Friday sent Kashmiri separatists Shabir Shah, Asiya Andrabi and Masarat Alam Bhat, arrested by the National Investigations Agency (NIA) in connection with a terror-funding case, to judicial custody till July 12. The case relates to the alleged terror-funding in the Valley and involves Jama’at-ud-Da’wah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed, the 2008 Mumbai terror attack mastermind based in Pakistan. Special Judge Rakesh Syal sent the trio to custody after the NIA did not seek any further custodial interrogation, advocate M.S. Khan, appearing for the accused, told PTI. NIA had arrested the three separatists on July 4 during in-chamber proceedings in the court and the agency was granted 10-day custody of the trio. Shah and Andrabi were already in custody in separate cases, while Alam was earlier brought from Jammu and Kashmir on transit remand where he was lodged in jail for alleged terror activities. NIA had filed a charge-sheet in January 2018 against Saeed, another terror mastermind Syed Salahuddin and 10 Kashmiri separatists in a case of alleged terror funding and secessionist activities in the Valley. While Shah was in judicial custody in a decade-old money laundering case for alleged terror financing, Andrabi was in jail in a case of allegedly waging a war against the country and delivering hate speeches in Jammu and Kashmir. According to the NIA, Shah had received ₹10 lakh from hawala operator Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watal, a co-accused in the case. Besides, the money was also sent to the banned outfit Dukhtaraan-e-Milat of which Andrabi was the chief, NIA had said. The case in which the accused were arrested on July 4 relates to alleged conspiracy to wage a war against the government (Section 121 of Indian Penal Code) by carrying out terrorist and secessionist activities in Jammu and Kashmir. The probe agency has charge-sheeted 12 persons, including Saeed and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin. Other offences for which the accused were charge-sheeted include those punishable under sections 120-B of IPC (Criminal Conspiracy) and various provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967. Besides Saeed and Salahuddin, the other 10 accused in the final report were – Hurriyat leader Syed Shah Geelani’s son-in-law Altaf Ahmed Shah, Geelani’s personal assistant Bashir Ahmad Bhat, media advisor and strategist of the Hurriyat Conference Aftab Ahmad Shah, secessionist outfit National Front chief Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (R) Farooq Ahmad Dar, media advisor of Hurriyat Conference (Geelani faction) Mohammad Akbar Khanday, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat official Raja Mehrajuddin Kalwal, hawala operator Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watal and two stone-pelters – Kamran Yusuf and Javed Ahmad Bhat. According to the NIA, the case was registered on May 30, 2017 and the first arrests made on July 24, 2017. Over 300 witnesses were examined during the probe, it has said. The NIA has said the conspiracy was hatched with active support, connivance and funding from terrorist organisations based in Pakistan and its agencies to achieve their objective of secession of the Jammu and Kashmir by waging war against the Indian government.last_img read more
