We'd like to welcome FluentEdge Technologies to our stable of 3000 Newswire sponsors today. FluentEdge has been serving the Ecometry e-commerce customers since that application was leading the way in new HP 3000 sales. In the decade since then, the company has developed and sold encryption software that not only serves the Ecometry site -- there are still about 50 of those running on 3000s, according to co-founder Cliff Looyenga -- but software for any other 3000 site that needs encryption for data or files.
Encryption is an important aspect to IT service in an era where hacks have become a steady threat to repel. It's good to have several encryption solution providers on the 3000 menu by now. There was a time when some in this community predicted the demise of the system, because it couldn't encypt credit card data to satisfy auditors. The FluentEdge software does that, during database calls or one file at a time.
Sponsors are important to the 3000 Newswire's service, the meat on the bone that lets us deliver news about this server during the Transition Era at no cost to our readers. By taking a sponsorship position in both our printed issue and blog, FluentEdge helps keep you informed, just like our other partner companies have done for 15 years. Sponsorship is a great marker of who remains engaged with your community, reaching for new relationships and caring for those in hand.
