Smith Micro released StuffIt Deluxe 2011 for the Mac, which introduces StuffIt Destinations, a new drag-and-drop toolbar application designed to help users securely transfer files.
For users looking to securely transfer large files, StuffIt Destinations acts as a desktop client for SendStuffNow, Smith Micro’s secure, cloud-based file transfer service.
SendStuffNow is a subscription-based service that allows users to send files up to 2GB without the hassle of email bounces or FTP. Recipients receive a URL to download the shared file via email, and no account or additional software is required.
StuffIt Destinations integrates with the Mac address book, allowing users to easily add recipients to a file upload request, and also provides client side compression to reduce upload times and make the most efficient use of the SendStuffNow cloud storage allocation. StuffIt Deluxe customers receive a premium SendStuffNow account, and can access the service from a free mobile app for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices.
The MSRP for StuffIt Deluxe 2011 is $49.99 and the package includes a Mac and Windows version, as well as 3 licenses for users’ home and professional use.
