CompuServe web server to support secure browsers.
CompuServe Incorporated's Internet Division has announced the release of Internet Office Web Server, the first secure Web server to provide support for both Secure-HyperText Transfer Protocol (S-HTTP) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
"Open solutions are crucial for corporations. Internet Office Web Server follows this model by providing corporations with a server that supports the two leading security standards, S-HTTP and SSL:" said Richard Ting, director of product management for CompuServe's Internet Division. "MIS and IS managers should not purchase Web servers that will lock them into a proprietary standard."
Internet Office Web Server offers a full breadth of functionality such as S-HTTP and SSL security features, top-of-the-line HTML authoring tools such as HotMetal Pro from Softquad, and fast, reliable data search engines from Architext.
In addition, it offers an SQL database, connects to MiniSWl and Sybase database, and includes full HTTP Web server functionality for delivering multimedia information that incorporates text, sound, graphics, and video. Furthermore, each copy of Internet Office Web Server includes a single-user license for free proxy server software.
Pricing for Internet Office Web Server will be $599 and will include a free copy of Compuserve's secure client software, Internet Office. The non-secure edition of Internet Office Web server is now available for free at http://www. spry.com.
