Extensis (Portland, OR) has entered into a partnership with WAM!NET (Eagan,MN) to sell integrated preflight and file-transfer solutions to customers in the print and publishing industries.

Under the agreement, WAM!NET will now offer Extensis preflighting technology in its secure, fully managed file transport and content storage services. Preflighting services will be provided through Extensis Preflight Online, the company's patent-pending web-based preflighting service.

With an integrated Extensis/WAM!NET solution installed, customers can first run jobs through Preflight Online to make sure they meet the required print specifications and quickly move the files from their LAN to a dedicated WAM!NET network interface device (the "Purple Box") for secure, managed transfer and delivery across the WAM!NET network.

Customers also may upload print-verified jobs using WAM!NET Internet Gateway or WAM!NET WorkSpace – file transfer and storage services that are accessible through a standard FTP client or Web browser. For customers that do not have a WAM!NET Purple Box and choose not to build an internal FTP solution, WAM!NET WorkSpace serves as a virtual FTP server, allowing for creation of multiple customer accounts and a repository for print jobs until they are ready for production.
