Nashua, NH, June 20, 2005. Ezenia! Inc. (OTCBB: EZEN.OB), a leading market provider of real-time collaboration solutions for corporate and government networks and eBusiness, announced today the release of InfoWorkSpace Version 220.127.116.11 and its immediate availability, including via direct upgrade download from Ezenia’s web site, www.ezenia.com.
The latest version of Ezenia’s flagship product builds upon the existing robust security infrastructure to provide even more stringent information assurance within the InfoWorkSpace collaborative environment. In addition, an array of new features and capabilities provides unprecedented flexibility to Ezenia users to customize and brand various interfaces.
InfoWorkSpace 18.104.22.168 is the culmination of an intense development project combining the requirements of a custom software development engagement and the desire to simultaneously bring forward advanced and industry-first flexible enhancements, addressing pending customer needs. Highlights of InfoWorkSpace v22.214.171.124 include:
InfoWorkSpace users have the flexibility to manage a database of custom images that can be used instead of the default images or icons. Images can be used as server favicons, building icons and even watermarks within text chat sessions. The customization capabilities allow for branding of an IWS server and improve user awareness when working within multiple places and/or sessions.
Version 126.96.36.199 provides the capability to do real time searches against the chat information stored. Additionally, a secure process allows for real-time monitoring of chats containing sensitive data to be identified and, if instructed, purged.
Overlaying a classification infrastructure for all InfoWorkSpace objects allows for classification of all contents entered into the system and enables enforced validation of proper authorization for access to content objects, even by properly authenticated users.
With version 188.8.131.52, all content modifications, including all administrative actions and whiteboard modifications, are recorded, audited and are available for query or played back through the existing, standard InfoWorkSpace interface.
Real-Time Administrative Control
Version 184.108.40.206 provides real-time access to the persistent information contained in a room’s chat history. History of persistent information of a room is a hallmark function of InfoWorkSpace. Administrators now have the flexibility to persist the data, throttle the amount, or choose the specific data, if needed.
User Presence Application Programming Interface (API)
Ezenia strives to conform to interoperability criteria, adhere to open standards, and promote programmability openness with APIs, where applicable. With InfoWorkSpace version 220.127.116.11, an XML-based API is included to allow for InfoWorkSpace user presence to be integrated with other applications, as needed.
“We are very excited about getting InfoWorkSpace 18.104.22.168 into our customers’ hands,” remarked Mike Bass, Vice President of Engineering Services. “Already the most secure collaborative tool on the market even before Version 22.214.171.124 is released, InfoWorkSpace now adds unprecedented flexibility and even more robust security assurance, as a direct result of dynamic business needs by our customers. Lessons learned with Version 126.96.36.199 combined with critical requirements derived from on-going feedback by our customers, e.g. backward compatibility and inclusion of open standards, will make Version 3.0, when released, be even more customer-centric.”
Upgrading to Version 188.8.131.52 requires at least version 2.5.1 installed, as a prerequisite, before the upgrade could be applied.
