SourceOffSite(TM) First to Offer Cross-Platform Internet Access Tool
For Visual SourceSafe(TM)
High Performance Tool Enables Distributed Development Teams to Efficiently
Share Sourcesafe(R) Databases
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., May 11 /PRNewswire/ — SourceOffSite, Inc.,
developer of innovative, high performance SourceSafe solutions, today
announced the 2.0 release of SourceOffSite Professional Edition. The
product is the first cross-platform Internet access tool for
Microsoft Visual SourceSafe. With SourceOffSite, distributed
development teams can have fast and secure access to a SourceSafe
database using any TCP/IP connection.
“Enterprises with multiple development sites should consider this
access solution for Visual SourceSafe 6.0,” said Scott Regan, Visual
Studio Product Manager at Microsoft. “SourceOffSite enables
distributed teams to securely share a centralized SourceSafe database
over the Internet. Their product integrates seamlessly with Visual
Studio and addresses a very important market need.”
SourceOffSite is a true client/server solution designed to provide
quick and secure Internet access to a SourceSafe database. The
cross-platform (Windows and Unix) Client provides an interface that
closely resembles the SourceSafe Explorer, allowing users to perform
most SourceSafe operations in a familiar fashion. SourceOffSite
supports IDE integration, giving developers access to the
SourceOffSite Client commands from within the Visual Studio
environment. The product offers encryption and compression to protect
and speed data transfer across the Internet. Common SourceSafe
operations are up to twelve times faster using SourceOffSite than
using the SourceSafe Explorer over a RAS connection.
SourceOffSite has received an enthusiastic response from the
development community for its ease of use and its natural extension
of SourceSafe functionality. David Shah, president of Pyramid Digital
Solutions, found SourceOffSite to be a valuable application for his
business. “SourceOffSite is an innovative product that serves a very
critical business need. The product has allowed us to easily support
out-of-office developers that need access to critical source files.
In short, brilliant idea, brilliant execution.”
SourceOffSite Professional Edition provides tremendous value to
enterprises that seek to enhance the use of Visual SourceSafe in
their distributed, cross-platform computing environments. For more
