Adobe Systems and BioWare Announced as Early Adopters of DIRECT 3

Tempe, Arizona, May 8, 2012 – Solid State Networks, a leading developer of content delivery solutions, today announced the availability of the DIRECT 3 Digital Delivery Application Platform ™.  DIRECT 3 is a third generation technology for application developers, content publishers and ecommerce providers that deliver digital products and services online.  Designed for rapid development, DIRECT 3 includes a native client that incorporates the features and functionality needed for most digital delivery applications with support for extensive customization through standard web technologies, including JavaScript, HTML and CSS.  DIRECT 3 can support a variety of use cases for digital distribution to consumers and enterprise users, as demonstrated in recent deployments by Adobe Systems for software delivery and BioWare for game delivery and updates.

The DIRECT 3 solution includes native clients for Windows and Mac operating systems, publishing workflow tools and a reporting system.  DIRECT 3 features many specific capabilities required for advanced digital delivery applications, such as versioning, differencing, updating, advanced proxy support, real-time delivery logistics, dynamic payload assembly and the ability to integrate securely with publisher backend systems or third party services.  Solid State will announce additional services to be offered in connection with DIRECT 3 and support for other operating systems later in 2012.

“DIRECT 3 was developed with the benefit of having input from many companies that we have had the pleasure of working with over a period of years.  We are excited about our capability to address their many and diverse needs with a single solution.” said Rick Buonincontri, CEO of Solid State Networks.  “We are particularly grateful to Adobe and BioWare for their contributions as early adopters.”

Adobe Systems Delivers Flash Player and Adobe Reader with DIRECT 3
Adobe’s Flash Player and Reader are among the most downloaded software programs in the world.  When Flash and Reader, each delivered in 18 languages, are combined with the products of Adobe’s partners, the result is over 600 product combinations that must be delivered seamlessly to users while maintaining operational manageability.  Additionally, the global reach of the Flash and Reader products requires advanced proxy support to ensure that corporate users are serviceable without requiring adjustments to their network policies.   Adobe met these and other complex requirements by deploying DIRECT 3 to deliver Flash and Reader to their customer base worldwide. “We observed measurable improvements in installation success when we transitioned to delivering Flash and Reader using DIRECT 3,” said Steve Snell, Group Product Manager of Adobe Systems.   “We have found DIRECT 3 to be very flexible in its ability to accommodate our evolving business and technical requirements.”
