MassTransit adds Linux web client support
GroupLogic has introduced MassTransit 6.1, the newest version of its server-based file sharing utility for Mac. The update delivers features geared towards both new and advanced users, including added support for Linux web clients, as well as international file and folder names with advanced Unicode Double-Byte Character Set (DBCS) capabilities. Other changes include new reports to help optimize file transfer performance, and automated Active Directory account provisioning and management tools.
Newer users receive a simplified web portal for sending files, which doesn't require a desktop client or browser plug-in. More advanced users, however, will work with a redesigned interface requiring a browser plug-in for advanced encryption, compression, and bulk-file sending features.
New tools can be used by IT professionals for automating both file transfers and workflow. Users now have the option to install the software locally onto each system, or into a virtual server at a cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services.
MassTransit is available as a free demo for new users, with pricing information available directly from the GroupLogic sales department.
