WiredRed Software Releases e/pop SDK for
Rapid Development of Enterprise Instant Messaging Applications

San Diego, California – (July 29, 2002) -- WiredRed™, the leader of secure instant messaging and enterprise real-time communications software, today announced the availability of its e/pop® Real-Time Software Development Kit (SDK). The SDK will enable in-house developers and a wide variety of business partners, including systems integrators, ISVs, OEMs, hardware appliance manufacturers and ASPs, to create custom client/server and web-based instant messaging (IM) applications based on WiredRed’s Real-Time Routing Architecture™, a secure, two-way, real-time communications platform. The SDK was designed to meet the needs of these organizations to rapidly develop secure IM applications that are capable of scaling-up in complex enterprise network environments.

The SDK supports Microsoft Visual Studio and Delphi 6 development toolsets, with certified languages including Visual Basic .NET, Visual C#, and Delphi 6. The SDK includes COM and ActiveX Objects and Delphi 6 native components, sample applications with source code, online documentation and development environment set-up.

The source-code samples include: a fully functional, secure instant messaging client with an easy-to-use interface; a one-way secure instant messaging application for emergency notifications and other broadcast applications; and a web-based IM interface. These can be readily adapted to internal and customer-facing applications such as CRM, ERP, Enterprise Information Portals (EIP), web front-ends, line-of-business and legacy applications.

WiredRed’s e/pop Enterprise Server provides the server component for the e/pop SDK Run-Time Client. The Server delivers authentication, security, directory service integration, groups, profiles and other central management capabilities to custom client applications. The Server supports multi-server topologies, multi-threading and symmetric multi-processing (SMP), enabling secure IM applications for thousands or tens-of-thousands of users. In addition, it provides private routing over LAN, WANs, VPNs, NATs, proxies and firewalls. This “private routing” capability supports the complex, distributed network environments found in most large organizations today.

According to Allen Drennan, CEO and founder of WiredRed, the e/pop Real-Time SDK is the first in a series of SDKs that will be released throughout 2002 and 2003.

“Enterprise instant messaging is evolving into a viable business productivity tool for companies of all sizes,” he said. “The core components of our e/pop 3.0 product, presence management, secure instant messaging and text chat, are now available for developers to create custom instant messaging applications. The ability to add real-time presence to legacy applications can be a powerful enhancement, which ensures immediate communication between employee teams and ultimately benefits the customers they serve.”
