SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - January 5, 2011) - ESTsoft [], the Asian market leader in desktop utilities and developer of the ALTools suite, providing file compression, image viewer, media player, and newly added anti-virus software, today announced the company's readiness to launch their products in the U.S. consumer market. With the support of strategic partnerships and over 25 million users under their belt, the leading Korean company is now reaching out to American markets which will benefit from the company's international software solutions and compatibility.

"Having gained considerable market presence in the Asian regions, we are excited for the opportunity to take our products to the U.S. market," said Chief Director of ALTools Sung Min Cho. "Specially packaged as an all-in-one, easy-to-use bundle, our innovative computer-based applications promise to boost internet browser performance and deliver affordable, fast and secure internet browsing to PC users across America."

Over the last several years, ESTsoft has added a number of very successful utilities to increase revenue in a number of markets, ranging from software utilities to gaming applications. The company successfully managed to convert the majority of its freeware users to corporate paying customers. ESTsoft came to prominence with ALZip, a file compression utility. ALZip has proven to be a valuable tool for international companies because of its support for a variety of international file formats, unlike its competitors, such as WinZip, which only supports American document types.
