New Version Adds Performance Features Including Advanced Caching SubSystem

ANNAPOLIS, MD – July 22, 2014 — / — South River Technologies, Inc. (SRT), an innovator in secure file transfer, announced today the release of Version 12 of its popular WebDrive File Access Client.

WebDrive enables you to access files on servers and popular cloud storage services as easily as you access, store, and edit files on your desktop by using the familiar interface of a drive letter. WebDrive is currently installed on approximately 5 million desktops in over 130 countries.

The new release adds many high-level features to WebDrive’s already advanced capabilities, such as Asynchronous Cache Mode, which greatly improves editing and overall performance of a mapped drive by allowing deletes, renames, and creates to be performed asynchronously.

“WebDrive allows our patrons to securely access their files in the desktop environment they are already accustomed to working in,” says Brian Luper, Associate Director of IT at Rutgers University. “It has been very popular with our students.” Rutgers University has had an enterprise implementation of WebDrive since 2006.

“The performance enhancements in version 12 are especially beneficial to the large corporations and educational institutions that use and rely on WebDrive regularly,” says Michael Ryan, CEO of South River Technologies.

Version 12 also features Automatic Offline Mode, which enables you to continue editing files in your cache if a connection to the server is lost by automatically switching to Offline mode.

The new version of WebDrive is available immediately at a price of $69.95 for a single license, and with larger corporate licenses available at less than $12 per seat. For more information on all of the changes and additions in this new version, please visit
