NetAlter Software Ltd., an Indian company and winner of the "Red Herring Asia 100" award has patented a unique, innovative system that offers a domain-less alternative to web and internet based solutions. Once developed, this system, called "NetAlter," will offer a secure, trusted, spam free and virus free software and network for both end users and businesses.
The "NetAlter Service Browser" will be made available free to end-users worldwide, and will enable them to connect, communicate and share with other users directly from their personal computers, via a true P2P network. Users will no longer have to worry about their personal and financial information being hacked or misused as the NetAlter browser will not allow unauthorized programs to run and will also protect the intellectual property of creators of content and applications. It will also provide features for communication such as email, file sharing, information sharing, messaging, as well as allowing the creation of personal and business networks using it’s innovative and secure P2P technology.
Wherever you are, by simply installing the NetAlter browser on your PC, you can publish content across the network without registering a domain name or hosting a web server. The NetAlter System also features an integrated intelligent clustered semantic search engine that is e-commerce enabled. Users will be able to search and find precise information and resources within the NetAlter browser and then store the search results and associated content to their computer. The user can then access this content offline.
The system will also provide a collaborative platform for developers and service providers to share their code or content and do business in the NetAlter network. NetAlter will offer a spam free, targeted advertising model that will be unique in it’s own way, as an alternative outlet for those frustrated with web based advertising. The most innovative technology that the NetAlter system offers is the Democratic Grid concept where end users in the network share the idle resources of their computer with a global Grid pool and then use the same grid to run grid enabled applications on a quid pro quo basis.
There are many more technologies that NetAlter promises to deliver such as Democratic Grid technology and NetAlter TV. NetAlter Software Ltd is also looking forward to working with established developers and service providers in forming a consortium in developing this unique technology.
