Foxit Corporation Upgrades Proven Foxit Reader to Version 4.0

Fremont, Calif. - June 29, 2010 - Now enabling users to populate, submit and save PDF forms, and annotate PDF files at no cost, Foxit Corporation, a leader in PDF software solutions, today announced the release of Foxit Reader 4.0, the newest version of its small, fast and feature rich PDF viewer for Microsoft Windows. The Foxit Reader 4.0 is a free alternative to other Windows software applications, now including document collaboration, commenting tools, spell checking, multi-level security and multimedia support.

In the past, premium PDF features such as these have been associated with a premium price tag. Today, Foxit is offering its powerful PDF technology platform, complete with premium features that go beyond the basic reading of PDF documents, as an upgrade at no cost. Built on Foxit’s trusted PDF technology platform, Foxit Reader 4.0 has an easy-to-use navigation system that promises users rapid downloading of PDF documents, reliable viewing and printing options, a tiny desktop footprint, single or multiple document interface modes and rapid response security releases. Now, even more users may take advantage of the Foxit Reader’s powerful framework to implement PDF solutions to reach their business goals.

"Foxit is committed to building a feature-base in which enterprise clients can be confident, and the Foxit Reader 4.0 is no exception—bringing new creative and collaborative features to increase efficiency and assure convenience for all users," said George Gao, Sr. Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing for Foxit Corporation. "Foxit Reader 4.0 is a powerful platform, beyond a simple reader, that provides a more interactive and secure document creation experience. With today’s upgrades, Foxit is confident that the PDF document needs of all PDF users are not only met, but exceeded."

The Foxit Reader 4.0 is customizable to meet the basic and advanced requirements of the government and enterprise market. Its small footprint makes it easy to deploy and update, and its security and forms features make it a safe and budget friendly choice in any working environment - including large organizations (private and public) that are currently paying PDF technology providers hundreds of thousands of dollars to enable this functionality. The Reader adheres to ISO standards and can view any PDF document. Finally, Foxit Reader is a cost saving tool, eliminating the need to purchase separate tools for drawing, marking-up, annotating, filling forms and adding multimedia.
