Port80 Software Launches New Windows Web Server Software Modules for Security, Performance & User Experience

SAN DIEGO, Calif., - October 1, 2002 — Port80 Software, Inc., an innovative developer of software modules for Microsoft's Internet Information Server (IIS) and a Microsoft Certified Partner, announces the release of four software products to maximize security, performance and user experience for Web site administrators, developers, owners and end-users. Addressing the gaps between IIS and the Apache Web server functionality, Port80 Software now offers these advanced IIS modules for Windows-based Web servers: URLSpellCheck, CustomError, ServerMask and CacheRight.

"Just as Apache Web Server modules are leveraged by the Linux and Unix communities, Port80 Software's IIS modules extend Web server functionality on the Windows platform," said Joseph Lima, COO of Port80 Software. "Our software products boost customer retention through better user experience, decrease system costs through enhanced performance, and strengthen server security, delivering an IIS feature set that equals or surpasses what is offered by Apache modules."

Port80 Software's new IIS module software products address a spectrum of functionality issues:

    ServerMask enhances security against low-level hacker exploits by changing, hiding or obscuring the server header data in an HTTP transaction. It is available for free 30-day trial or $24.95 for a single server license at ServerMask.
    CacheRight enables intelligent cache management for developers, reducing bandwidth utilization, decreasing costs, and increasing the page load speed of a Web site. It is available for free 30-day trial or $149.95 for a single server license at CacheRight.

All Port80 Software IIS modules run on Windows NT, 2000 and XP with IIS 4.0, 5.0 and 5.1 and are compatible with major third party server-side scripting platforms. All products (except ServerMask) support multiple virtual servers. Download a free 30-day trial and purchase licenses for all Port80 Software products at www.port80software.com.
