Extensis Unveils New Server to Tackle Font Management Compliance Risks

PORTLAND, Ore.—May 24, 2011—Extensis® today announced the latest upgrade to their industry-leading font server, Universal Type Server® 3. This new release helps companies police font usage while protecting company assets from misuse and license infringement.

Many companies don’t realize that font license agreements are just as strict as software licenses and there are substantial legal implications for misuse. High visibility companies, from entertainment to publishing, have been sued over font violation issues. For any company that leverages a large library of fonts, it is an easy position to get into without the right system in place.

“Our customers are hearing more and more about font compliance vulnerabilities and looking for a reliable way to protect themselves,” said Chris Meyer, Sr. Product Manager for Font Management, Extensis. “They need to track, and in some cases lock-down, font usage across the organization. Universal Type Server 3 ensures companies are safeguarded, while still fostering the creative process.”

Universal Type Server 3 is a highly scalable server that addresses both the compliance needs of the Administrator and the workflow needs of the creative user. This new release will allow companies to police usage—in real time—and report on over-usage. The result: companies give font access to anyone who needs it, yet automatically protect themselves from license violation risks.

New Product Highlights:

•Font Usage Reporting
•Font License Enforcement
•Seamless Server Failover
•Robust Client Creativity Tools
•New Adobe® InCopy® and Photoshop® Support

Universal Type Server 3 will be released in June, 2011. To learn more about Universal Type Server, visit http://typeserver.com.
