SmarterTools Partners With SWsoft's Plesk 7.5 for Windows

PHOENIX, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 6, 2005 -- SmarterTools Inc., a leading developer of email, log analytics and help desk applications, is pleased to announce a partnership with SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software. SWsoft's Plesk 7.5 for Windows server control panel software is considered the multi-platform industry standard in dedicated and shared single server environments. Plesk 7.5 for Windows will be integrated with the SmarterTools suite of products that combine an enterprise-level feature set with a focus on reliability and security.

"Integrating with Plesk 7.5 for Windows is a logical step for SmarterTools because we have a suite of products that is perfectly suited for the hosting environment, regardless of the size of the host," said Bryon Grosz, Lead Developer of SmarterMail. "Plesk is considered one of the best control panels for hosting whether the provider hosts a small or very large number of clients. Giving those users the ability to integrate an enterprise-level mail, stats or ticketing system for a minimal initial investment represents an attractive benefit."

"SWsoft is pleased to partner with the SmarterTools suite of products to further extend the already large number of applications Plesk supports," said Kurt Daniel, Director of Marketing, SWsoft. "We are providing seamless integration of Plesk with the full SmarterTools' product line to offer customers an easy and cost effective implementation of a popular mail server, stats server and ticketing solution on Windows. All Plesk 7.5 for Windows customers can take advantage of free entry level quantities of SmarterTools licenses and can easily purchase additional ones as needed."

SmarterTools' products come with a number of robust features that other similar products lack. For example, SmarterMail has some of the most robust anti-spam features built-in to the product, including Bayesian filtering and the use of SPF implementation as the basis for anti-spam rules. SmarterStats and SmarterTicket have similar features included in their installations versus requiring third party add-ons and integration. Offering fully-featured products in this way increases the value of the products without increasing the cost.
