New Products Show Macs Still in the Web Game

Tenon Intersystems is keeping the Mac faith on the Web with two announcements this week from Macworld.

The first is WebTen 4.0, a new version of their high-performance Apache-based Web server for MacOS X Server. WebTen 4.0 is downloadable today for use with Rhapsody DR2 and will be available in the future on CD for $495 when MacOS X Server ships.

WebTen 4.0 gives Macintosh users the features of Tenon's WebTen 2.1 (for MacOS), while taking advantage of MacOS X Server's preemptive multitasking, memory protection and advanced virtual memory.

Tenon also announced availability of Ch-ching!, an electronic commerce solution product intended for small businesses that are looking to get on the Web.

In combination with WebTen, multiple secure storefronts can be supported on a single machine, with each storefront having its own SSL certificate. Ch-ching storefronts can be configured to handle all shopping cart functions outside of an SSL server and to handle payment transactions within an SSL server.
