Rad Inks, a company founded in 2003 is an innovative solutions provider located in Colombo. They are the authors of a series of ground breaking applets the most popular amongst them being Rad Upload; A drag and drop file upload applet.
With Rad Upload, visitors to a website simply drag and drop their files onto the web browser and the files are instantly transferred to the server. While conventional upload systems can tackle only a handfull of files, this software can easily transfer thousands of file and folders with giga bytes of data all at once.
Since it's debut in 2003, Rad Upload has gained wide acceptance and it is currently used by tens of thousands of webmasters to build more user friendly websites. Web developers have found the advanced features of Rad Upload; such as client side image scaling can lead to significant reduction in development time for applications such as Photo and Video Galleries or Content Management Systems.
Rad Upload was preceded by the Rad SFTP Applet; a secure file transfer program which was highly rated when it was first released and went on to be featured on the official java website. The Rad SFTP client can be easily integrated with existing web sites and applications. The goal is to provide users of the web site a secure, convenient and familiar form of file management. It is a replacement for the more conventional FTP which is a protocol that is completely lacking in security.
The Rad Inks SFTP client makes use of the SSH FTP protocol, which despite the similarity in name with the File Transfer Protocol is a much more secure system. With FTP all the data and commands are transferred between the client and the server in plain text. Thus with FTP user names and passwords are transmitted without encryption. Security conscious webmasters and organizations are moving away from FTP and embracing the more secure SFTP where all the commands and data are transferred with encryption.
The company recently announced version 2.0 of their SFTP applet and version 3.10 of Rad Upload. More information about these products and other software by Rad Inks can be found on the company's website at http://www.radinks.com/
