Georgia SoftWorks – True Innovators in the SSH/Telnet World – The Real Pioneers

Georgia SoftWorks has often been copied, but has never been equaled in their developments.

Founded in 1991, GSW began as a custom software development. They had an in-house need for a fast, reliable, robust and high-performing Telnet Server for Windows, and saw that there were none available. Georgia Softworks began to develop their own. Their product filled a void in the industrial and commercial market, and quickly gained momentum.

They designed their Telnet Server on their core foundation of requirements for commercial software: It must be reliable, consistant, robust, with superior performance.

  • Reliability: It must operate correctly
  • Consistency: It must operate the same way every time. No Surprises.
  • Robustness: Not only does it handle normal situations, but it must handle “of the ordinary” conditions without crashing or causing other problems.
  • Performance: It must be fast, with excellent features.

They designed their Telnet and SSH Server for Windows on a platform where features could be easily added and that requires minimal maintenance. Because of this, innovation-based on user feedback has led to many features and breakthroughs with the GSW software. Georgia SoftWorks cares about their customers and understands that many people need custom development to satisfy their very targeted objectives. GSW constantly innovates and improves products to fit customers specific needs. GSW is open to a plethora of ideas ranging from custom development to providing personalization packages to help secure businesses and take Telnet/SSH to un-imaginable levels.

Georgia SoftWorks has been committed to its customers and committed to developing the best connectivity software on the market.
