New York, NY., Web 2.0 Expo - September 17, 2008 - Caspio, Inc. (www.caspio.com), provider of the leading do-it-yourself database platform for rapid web application creation, announced today at the Web 2.0 Expo the new Caspio Bridge 6.0 offering enhanced Web 2.0 capabilities to deliver more interactive and integrated web applications and widgets. The new release also includes highly sought-after features like CAPTCHA security and AJAX interactivity for a more sophisticated end-user experience.
"We are all about maximizing the Internet experience for both businesses and their consumers, and the new features of Caspio Bridge 6.0 do just that," said Frank Zamani, Founder, President and CEO of Caspio. "We are helping our customers create more interactive, informative, and relevant web applications so they can increase traffic, automate business processes, create self-service tools, monetize database assets, and ultimately succeed in the global economy."
Caspio's location-based applications provide geocentric capabilities including database-driven mashups with Yahoo! or Google maps, distance search within a certain radius of a location or zip code, and mass geo-coding for assigning location tags to records in large databases.
Caspio Bridge 6.0 now offers single-click insertion of CAPTCHA human verification technology for any application to prompt users to enter security codes when submitting forms and searches, effectively blocking SPAM and data harvesting robots. When utilized in login forms, CAPTCHA blocks attacks on password protected applications. A CAPTCHA audio recording is also available for visually impaired users who need to hear the security code to enter it.
Caspio also offers dynamic AJAX features for end-user applications such as cascading dropdowns and listboxes for dynamic granular filtering. Additionally, integration with popular social networking and ecommerce sites such as YouTube, flickr, and PayPal allows Caspio customers to further enhance the Web 2.0 features of their applications.
Caspio's unique pricing model and embeddable "anywhere" deployment provides open access to unlimited authenticated or anonymous users, making it the platform of choice for private or public applications with a large user base. Caspio Bridge 6.0 is now even more affordable and scalable for small to mid-sized businesses, offering twice the applications at the same cost. Caspio Bridge Standard packages include 10 applications starting at $40 per month. Special packages are also available for corporations requiring an extensive service level agreement or a multi-account management system. A free limited package is also available for personal use.
Caspio has powered more than 150,000 applications at thousands of businesses, media websites, government agencies and educational institutions. At booth #1434 at the Web 2.0 Expo in New York this week, Caspio is showcasing the newly released version 6.0 of its Caspio Bridge platform, along with a sampling of its customer applications at work.
