Atomz Enhances Content Management and Search Apps

Atomz, a Web-native ASP that offers site management and search software, announced at the Seybold Conference numerous enhancements to Atomz Publish and Atomz Search applications. The conference is being held this week in San Francisco.

"As a Web-native software provider, Atomz is able to continually identify customer needs and enhance our products literally every week," said Kevin Wallace, Atomz vice president of engineering. "Our hosted architecture allows us to make improvements to the live, production software as soon enhancements have been fully engineered and tested, meaning customers always have the most advanced features to help them manage their Web site content."

Among the enhancements announced by Atomz is support for Macromedia Flash content, including Macromedia Flash MX, within Atomz Search. Atomz Search supports the indexing and crawling of Macromedia Flash content and applications, according to the company.

Other enhancements include the following:

  • Advanced Phrase, Acronym and Synonym Support (Atomz Search)
  • Advanced Template Management (Atomz Publish).
  • Related Content Display (Atomz Publish and Atomz Search).
  • Forms-Based Authentication (Atomz Search).
  • Advanced Search Templates Management (Atomz Publish and Atomz Search).
  • Time-To-Search Display (Atomz Search).
  • Media Manager (Atomz Publish).

The enhancements announced at Seybold follow last week's announcement of the Atomz VPN Solution, a virtual private network designed to complement its application infrastructure. The feature is designed to give customers added protection for data that is delivered beyond the corporate firewall.

The Atomz VPN Solution integrates with any enterprise VPN and is designed to leverage industry standard hardware, software and protocols to fit into any Web site hosting environment, the company said. It combines a dedicated network and application server with encryption and user-authentication software.

Atomz executives attribute what it describes as the swift adoption of its product suite to its capability to rapidly incorporate new features. "The company recently completed its strongest quarter on record, with revenue growth of over 36 percent," said Steve Kusmer, Atomz CEO and co-founder. "Our products continue to replace expensive Web content management systems and search solutions from companies such as Interwoven, Inktomi, and Verity, as well as "home grown" corporate systems."

San Francisco-based Atomz is listed by ASPnews as a Top 20 Service Provider.
