Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

Treefrog Interactive Inc. has provided the funding and infrastructure for the newly formed LassoSoft Inc., which has assumed the assets and all current staff of the former LassoSoft LLC.

The Lasso suite of cross-platform software tools allows users to quickly build and serve powerful data-driven websites and web-based applications. The growth of the Lasso product line will now be advanced through Newmarket, Ontario-based web designer and developer Treefrog Interactive Inc.

"We are very happy to provide a new home for Lasso in Newmarket," said Treefrog Interactive CEO, Sean Stephens. "Lasso has been the backbone of tens of thousands of websites and plays a critical role in many server-side web applications around the world. We intend to radically change how it is taken to market while still respecting and supporting the existing installations worldwide."

The forthcoming delivery of LEAP™ 5.0, the latest version of Treefrog's proprietary content management system software, has been built on the newest version of the Lasso product line. The LEAP™ content management system drives thousands of websites across Canada and around the world.

Lasso is known for three core advantages: security, speed and the simplicity of its code. It has a history of virtually no security issues when compared with competing open-source languages such as PHP and Python. The latest version, Lasso 9, was released in February 2010 and has been benchmarked faster than any other competing language. Lasso is also an effective tool for Object Oriented programming, offering higher developer productivity when building complex systems.

Lasso's cross-platform software tools are used by more than 38,000 corporations around the world, including Apple Computer, Inc., Symantec Corp., Cisco Systems, Inc., Sun Microsystems, Inc., Citrix, Motorola, Siemens, Air Canada, Volvo, Mister Transmission, WestJet, GE, Kodak, and Makita. Institutional organizations also use Lasso, including NASA, the United Nations, the US Food and Drug Administration, and Stanford University.
