[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Yazsoft today is pleased to announce a major new upgrade to ShareTool, version 2. ShareTool is an award winning utility that lets you connect to all of the Bonjour services on your home or office network from anywhere in the world securely over a 100% SSH encrypted connection. This includes iTunes Music Sharing, Screen Sharing, File Sharing, printing, and much more. No server or technical skills required. Starting with version 2, you can now connect to multiple home/office networks simultaneously.
What Is Cloud Computing?
From Wikipedia: Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand. Most cloud computing infrastructure consists of services delivered through data centers and built on servers. Clouds often appear as single points of access for all consumers' computing needs.
Some popular applications offering cloud-based services include applications like Dropbox.
Why Do Some People Use Cloud Based Applications?
Some people need to have access to their files when they're away from a particular machine. By putting their files on a cloud-based server, these files are centrally located for them to access from anywhere securely.
While certainly practical and convenient, there is one important thing that simply cannot be ignored. At the end of the day, all data and important files are stored on someone else's machines over which you have no real (complete) control. In addition, for those that need large amounts of hard disk space, there is often an added monthly charge to pay.
Why store your files on someone else's servers when you can keep everything on your own Macs, and have complete, fully encrypted control and access at anytime and from anywhere at no added cost?
Why not bypass using someone else's servers and always be connected directly to your own machines - a familiar and safe environment that only belongs to you?
After all, you wouldn't give your wallet to a stranger and ask them to hold on to it would you? So why would you hand off your files to someone you don't really know?
Sharetool Offers A Fast, Fully Encrypted Alternative
ShareTool is a fast, extremely secure, and magical way to remain connected to all your home or office networks no matter where you are physically. While connected with ShareTool, many shared (Bonjour-enabled) services on your remote home or office network automatically appear in your Finder, iTunes, iPhoto, and tons of other applications (just as they would if you were physically located at that network).
For example, let's assume you're away for business or on vacation somewhere.
With ShareTool, you would be able to:
* Be part of your home/office network as if you never left
* Encrypt all of your web traffic and route it through your home network
* Listen to your entire home iTunes music library
* Control the screen of any of your home computers
* Grab that important file you forgot to bring with you
* Connect to your FileMaker Pro database
* Connect to your complete home iPhoto library
* Print on your home network
* And a whole lot more
In addition, ShareTool 2 now supports connecting to multiple networks at the same time! There no longer is a limit to the number of networks you can be connected to simultaneously.
