|Newly formed Yaga, Inc. has announced the introduction of Yaga Publish,
a new e-delivery infrastructure for the distribution of digital files.
According to the company, the file-centric platform leverages the best
of peer-to-peer and distributed computing to allow users to publish, search,
and retrieve digital files securely, reliably, and cost-effectively. Yaga
Publish is available for licensing, co-branding, and private labeling.
Yaga Publish is a combination of software and infrastructure with which
businesses can build a powerful file-sharing network, allowing them to
distribute all types of files while maintaining complete control over the
content. It features the following three components:
Yaga Publish also has built-in security. When a user signs up for an account,
Yaga generates and assigns a private key using its proprietary Certificate
Authority. A unique digital fingerprint is also generated for each file
published. When the file is retrieved, the fingerprint is used by Yaga
Download to authenticate and verify complete delivery of the file.
Yaga Share—A file-sharing client that works behind firewalls. The thin
client resides on the desktop and facilitates the sharing of digital files,
which are automatically indexed and available via Yaga Search.
Yaga Search—A distributed search platform with a peer-to-peer-supported
index that works on both centralized and distributed networks. It supports
digital rights management.
Yaga Download—A feature that makes file retrieval fast and reliable, according
to the announcement. It supports all file formats and ensures that files
are transferred from the most efficient location.
"We've come up with a unique way to help businesses monetize their digital
assets," said Chris Kitze, CEO and co-founder of Yaga, Inc. "Yaga Publish
is a truly revolutionary end-to-end solution for distributing and selling
online that is both secure and reliable, while allowing users to maintain
control over content."
