SAN DIEGO, Calif., - March 16, 2009 — Port80 Software, Inc., a developer of Web server tools for Microsoft's Internet Information Services (IIS), announces a major version upgrade of its best-selling HTTP Compression tool. ZipEnable 4.0 enhances the prior releases and introduces support for 64-bit computing platforms.
ZipEnable simplifies and enhances the built-in HTTP compression in Microsoft IIS 6.0 web servers. HTTP compression allows far less data to be sent per Web transaction, reducing bandwidth costs and enhancing Web site usability through faster page loads. ZipEnable provides the means to fully control compression on Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6.0.
In IIS 6.0, HTTP compression is embedded into the core Web server code. "This tight integration makes IIS 6 compression very fast and efficient," explained Joseph Lima, COO of Port80 Software. "However, customers must know the intricacies of IIS metabase scripting to use the majority of settings they will need when configuring compression in real-world situations. But with ZipEnable, they simply install, configure, and compress."
ZipEnable manages IIS 6.0 compression at the global, site, directory, and file levels. Administrators can easily configure compression on the full range of static and dynamic file types, saving time and resources. The software installs quickly, with a small memory footprint and no server performance impact, and includes a wizard for rapid multi-site compression deployment.
ZipEnable is available for a free 30-day trial download and $199.95 for a permanent single server license at www.port80software.com/zipenable. Discounted multi-server licenses are also available.
